Heimæy (Iceland): cruises in a port

Viewing of a cruise from the port Heimæy (Iceland). A cruise from ports of Iceland online. Number of rours in the port Heimæy (Iceland), cruises from a port Plantours & Partner GmbH.

A huge volcanic explosion with a stream of lava measuring 1600 m destroyed the majority of the main settlement of Heimæy.The lava flowed through the streets and could only be stopped by the use of waterpumps used to spray sea water onto the hot lava non-stop. This also prevented the loss of the natural harbour of Heimæy. Without it, the main source of income of the island population would have been lost, which would probably have led to the abandonment of the permanent settlement. Sights include: the lighthouse at Storhöfoi, the Hjörleifur valley. .
