Thrihnukagigur volcano has been asleep for 4,000 years and there are no signs of it waking up. However, that’s an option that cannot be ruled out. In fact, it’s very likely that the volcano will erupt again. But that could happen in 1,000 years’ time, in 10,000 years or even 100,000 years. No one knows. So, don’t hold your breath!
Iceland is home to approximately 130 volcanic mountains, 18 of which have been active since the country was first inhabited. Thrihnukagigur volcano is NOT one of those 18 and scientists see no indications of it coming to life in the near future. So, the point we are trying to establish is that it’s very, very, very unlikely that an eruption will start.
