My name is Tim Fredriksson and I'm from Sweden. Soon me and my wife (hopefully) will visit Iceland.
During this trip we want to visit a volcano for a certain reason. We need to get rid off my wife's wedding ring from her first marriage. This is very symbolic for us, and I feel that we cannot move on with our relationship before the ring is destroyed. Thus, we want to visit a volcano and threw the ring in to the crater. 
Which active volcanos are easily accessible from Reykjavik? Which ones do you recommend for this purpose?

Thanks in advance,

Tim Fredriksson

PS. If tourists are not allowed all the way to an active crater we are willing to pay for a guide/ranger throwing away the ring into the volcano.

Greetings from Iceland,

As you might have heard there is an eruption going on in Iceland in Eyjafjallajökull glacier.  It is however strictly forbidden to go anywhere near the crater, it does not matter weather you are a tourist or a guide/ranger.  It is much too dangerous and also it is much to hot for anyone to go anywhere near.  This is in fact the case for any eruption, anywhere in the world, it is much to hot to go anywhere near so it would be impossible for anyone to go near enough to be able to throw anything into the crater.    The best thing for you would be to go to a jewler and sell him the ring and ask him to melt it, that would destroy it.   I do not want to be rude or incosiderate but the idea you propse sounds too much like something from the Lord of the Rings tale to work in reality.

All the best from Iceland,

  1. Love all their misspellings. The Lord of the Rings reference was funny.
