Hvolsvöllur is a small town in the south of Iceland about 106 km to the east of Reykjavík. It is situated in the inland swamps of Landeyjar, in the municipality of Rangárţing eystra and has around 900 inhabitants. The name of the town literally translates to `Hillfield`. The hringvegur road traverses the town. The area is the scene of one of the most famous sagas of Iceland, Njál`s saga. The town of Hvolsvöllur has a Saga Centre dedicated to this and other Icelandic sagas. In 2010, the volcanic eruptions at Eyjafjallajökull caused evacuations in the surrounding area, with people being relocated to Hvolsvöllur, where Red Cross mass care centres had been set up. We visited the Lava Centre located in Hvolsvöllur in the summer of 2018.
