Hike to Reykjadalur Hot Springs & Geothermal Tour

Our Afternoon and Evening Active Volcano tours from Reykjavík Iceland take you to recent eruption sites of Fagradalsfjall and Meradalir in Geldingalur Valley. You will witness the vast scale of the changes these eruptions have made to the landscape.
