Situated at the foot of the volcano, the Þorvaldseyri Visitor Centre opened on April 14th 2011, exactly one year after the start of the Eyjafjallajokull eruption.

It contains clear, colourful graphics and dramatic photos that both explain the volcanic and geologic forces and summarize major volcanic and historical events. 

The highlight of the visit, is a 60-seat theatre where you will see a 20-minute film about the volcano eruption and focuses on the experiences and emotions of the family living on Thorvaldseyri Farm, the farm directly below the volcano. The film covers the timeline of events and portrays the spectacular natural event, and the incredible challenges met by the family farm of Þorvaldseyri.
