    Live stream here It's not very exciting compared to some of the more enthusiastic volcanos out there, and people seem to be standing pretty close (like, tens of metres).

      Having a quick glance at the stream, I have no idea what the scale of what I'm looking at is. Anyone able to enlighten me?

      Looks like it's not very far away at all, but it's the less dangerous sort of eruption so things should be fine. If I ever get the chance to go back to Iceland I would like the Blue Lagoon to...

      If I ever get the chance to go back to Iceland I would like the Blue Lagoon to still be there.
