Things to note:
Live feed from the Volcano
The erupting volcano in Icelands' Fagradalsfjall is ongoing for the first time in 7000 years and now is the time to come see nature wonder happening before our eyes. This true geothermal wonderland starts with a scenic drive through fairy-like lava fields covered in a thick layer of green moss past the majestic Lake Kleifarvatn, stopping by the colorful Seltún Hot Springs Geothermal area at Krýsuvík before we hike into Geldingadalur Valley to see the live volcanic activity all around. You will be able to enjoy your packed dinner while watching lava flowing from the volcano. On the way back from this unique experience seeing moss and land in the making we will drive through the Reykjanes Peninsula where previous volcanos have formed now rock hard formations and soft lava moss.
An active volcano and naturally warm healing waters is something that you don't see every day and in this tour volcanic- and geothermal activity run the scene to make this a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The beautiful backcountry of Reykjanes Peninsula offers variated scenery, natural phenomena, and places of stunning beauty and is only a short distance from Reykjavík! Being so close to the nature-surrounded capital Reykjavík, a tour to the active volcano in Geldingadalir and gives you the great opportunity to visit a number of interesting places at a relaxed pace without much time spent on the road.
The Peninsula of Reykjanes is a true volcanic wonder hosting unique natural phenomenon; open rift zones, mossy covered lava-fields, geothermal fields, mountain lakes, fishing villages, and breathtaking coastal features. Reykjanes lies on one of the world’s major plate boundaries, the Mid Atlantic Ridge in between the tectonic plates of Eurasia and North America, drifting apart from one another resulting in open fissures and volcanic activity.

It was amazing! The guide was so good. He made it a fun trip despite of bad weather. When we arrived, it all cleared up and I had a sight that I will never forget! So special.
Easy to book, pickup a little confusing but once we got going later than anticipated, trip was great. Stopped at a couple real cool spots to quickly walk and photo then stopped for water/ snacks. Took a night tour- strongly recommend. It’s a little cooler but you’re going to heat up on your hour plus walk up some pretty steep but manageable trails. We were all given matching orange vests and option of ski poles( walking stick).Guide was great, funny, insightful, amazing- forgot his name but local knowledge was spectacular. Hike up great- gave us several hours on top. Caught an incredibly active day- lava was exploding!!! Lava flow down mountain was stunning. The lava and flow lit the sky- one of if not THE coolest thing I ever saw. Night time enhanced it immensely.We agreed to meet back at bus- everyone cooperated- ride home smooth as they dropped off all parties. Strongly recommend, well run, breathtaking experience I will never forget
Our guide was great. Thanks a lot for this opportunity!
The guide Emma and the driver were great on this tour.
What an experience! We got started sooo late - 21:30. Then to climb to the heavens it took 90 minutes of guts, prayers and sweat. But the volcano came through and we saw an entire fissure open up. The tour guys were funny and very concerned about safety. We got back to our hotel at 3 am and watched the 20-hr sun rise while tending to our wounds. It’s a very very difficult journey so be ready and use this company when you do!
What an amazing experience! We woke up the Volcano, great gathering together, once in a life time experience. Super organized, great guides!!!!
Tour was amazing and informative. We were all able to go at our own speed throughout the hike and the view was spectacular!
