Heimaey, whose webcams can be viewed online on this site, is an amazing Icelandic island that will delight you with its nature and picturesque landscapes.

The main attractions of Heimaey are the peaks of Eldfell and Helgafell. These are active volcanoes that constantly increase the size of the island. So, for example, after the last eruption in 1973, the field of solidified lava increased the area of ​​the island by 2.1 km2. Hiking trails are laid along the slopes of Eldfell, and at the top there are several active geysers and mineral deposits.
The second of the Helgafell volcanoes exceeds its neighbor in age by five millennia. The summit is accessible from the southwest.
You can learn more about the nature of these places, as well as the formation of local landscapes and other amazing facts at the Museum of Natural History, which is considered one of the best of its kind in the whole country. The highlight of the institution is the presence of a research aquarium, which is home to various species of representatives of the ichthyofauna of the Icelandic seas.

In addition to the stunning nature, Heimaey, like the whole of Iceland, boasts a distinctive culture and traditions that are carefully passed down from generation to generation.

You can learn everything about the place of cultural heritage by visiting the Folklore Museum in Heimaey. A large collection of works of art is exhibited here, as well as a numismatic collection and an exhibition of old navigational charts. Along with this, in the halls of the museum you can see archival photographs of the last eruption of the last century.
That year, the eruption occurred twice. The first splashes of lava went into the sea. But the second eruption hit the city. Residents tried to save Heimaei on their own, in particular by cooling cargo in the port - the main source of income. Rescuers pumped water from the sea and watered the lava flows, which eventually turned into a stone wall 27 meters high. During the eruption, more than a hundred houses and buildings were damaged, which remained buried under 35 meters of lava. Fortunately, the port itself and the cargo, which cost millions of dollars, were saved. From that time Heimaey began to be called the Icelandic Pompeii.
Residents returned to the island only after almost six months. And a year later, in 1974, the port and fish processing plants began to work again. More than a million tons of ash was removed to restore the city. To this day, you can see traces of lava on some buildings that were left without restoration as a reminder of the irresistible power of the elements.

Heimaey webcams will allow you to see some of the city streets in real time.
