- Our destination is the LAVA - Iceland Volcano and Earthquake Centre, a state-of-the-art facility with a high-tech interactive exhibition illustrating the birth and development of one of the largest volcanic islands in the world.
- We discover the geological history of Iceland and the forces of nature that shaped this extraordinary land. We experience an earthquake thanks to a simulator and learn what lies behind a volcanic eruption.
