The popularity of Iceland’s erupting volcano among tourists continues and attention in the foreign media is only increasing.
At least four journalists from Britain’s biggest newspapers have written features on their ‘incredible journeys’ to Iceland’s Fimmvorduhals volcano.
The British journalists were invited for a one-day-and-one-night trip to Iceland by Fridrik Palsson, the owner of Hotel Ranga; a country hotel which is fortunately located for volcano trips.
According to RUV, Palsson had words with colleagues in the UK who managed to gather a group of enthusiastic journalists at very short notice. They came from The Guardian, The Sunday Telegraph, The Times and The Daily Mail.
The journalists were taken on a guided volcano tour both in a helicopter and on snowmobiles and also given dinner and hotel accommodation. DV uses the old Icelandic proverb “perceptive is the guest’s eye” to suggest that its readers check out the original articles straight from the very “perceptive” horses’ mouths. The links are here:
