Volcano Open

Volcano Open is one of the biggest open golf tournaments in Iceland

It takes place the first weekend in July, which is also the weekend that locals celebrate the end of the volcanic eruption in Heimaey which was officially declared over on July 3rd 1973.

The Westman Islands Golf Course is unique, partly set within a volcanic crater.

Volcano Open is a well-attended and popular tournament which is not surprising — nothing beats starting a game of golf on sunny day and playing well into the bright July night in a setting as extraordinary as the Westman Islands Golf Course has to offer.
