Does the volcano sound different when you visit it by hitting the so-called golden hour? I am sure it does. It’s summer in Iceland, the sun is almost not set – it is bright until 11 pm, and before 5 am it is dawn again. We made it to Geldingadalur yesterday when the sun was lowering towards the horizon and turning the volcano’s surroundings into gold. How does it sound? Calmly. Like the ocean. We sat on the hill, staring at the lava as if enchanted. That’s why I like to call this time not so much the golden hour, but… the magic hour.
