Here you can see where close area is. Bee careful in nearby lava it can be gas from the lava who is dangerous .Holuhraun-lokunarkort_16mars2015

The restricted area extends 20 m outside the edges of the new lava field, to the edge of Dyngjujökull glacier on the south side, the river Jökulsá á Fjöllum to the east and to the westernmost branches of Jökulsá á Fjöllum in the west.

This decision is based on a risk assessment from the Icelandic Meteorological Office covering risk factors in the area. The Icelandic Meteorological Office has also proposed countermeasures to increase public safety close to the restricted area.

The Police, in cooperation with Vatnajökull National Park, will provide a presence in the area to secure public safety, in close collaboration with the Icelandic Meteorological Office. These institutions will try to install further monitoring equipment to add to the existing monitoring system in the area to increase monitoring so that warnings may be issued if necessary.

Vatnajökull National Park will issue locations of viewing areas. Information on evacuation routes will be issued by officers on site.

How to get information about weather and road conditions in Iceland

Welcome to my Iceland's interview page where you can find what to do,where to go and how to travel in the land of Ice and Fire,visit often and click on rss .

Here in Iceland can be very hard wind and very icy road, heavy snow on the road special on the mountain road over the winter. I urge everyone to get as much information on the road they are going to drive, let someone know where you are going and the time you expect to be on the way from A-B.
I success you let the hotel you are coming to know what road you are going to take and what time you expect to come to the hotel.
It is very good to take look at the web for the road construction http://vegagerdin.is
Then it should look like this:
