The Westman Islands have a unique eruption, where in 1973 a volcanic eruption began in the middle of the night without warning. The impact was great, both for the island and the people who lived there. There is a great story connected to this night both geologically, and the story of the people who had to flee their homes very suddenly. No one knew how big this would be or whether they would ever return. After the eruption, much effort was made to try to bring the island to a standstill. This tour is particularly enjoyable for those who want to learn about the eruption and hear stories from the people who experienced this night. Also, the history of the islands where the Skans stop and the beautiful area of the Skans is explored and the Stave Church and Landlyst are lightly explored. It is always fun to let the mind wander to the past and think about the people who lived on the island before modernity took over. When walking over them, one is more in proximity to nature and what is better than being outside and getting the story straight into a vein from a native islander. There you get a great overview of how devastating the eruption really was and what the people showed so much strength and grief to come back. Sagnheimar frames the overall picture of the island's history with beautiful layout and pictures, and is perfectly chosen to end this walk in this splendid museum located in downtown Vestmannaeyja.
