Description

The only live LAVA SHOW in the world!

Are you fascinated with lava, volcanoes, and geology? Would you like to see red-hot lava up close in a safe environment? Are you embarking on a journey through Iceland, the land of fire and ice? If the answer is YES, then you need to see the Lava Show in Vík. It is the only live lava show in the world and has become one of the must-see experiences in Iceland! Just look at the incredible reviews!

An incredible and unique experience

In order to recreate a miniature volcano eruption, they superheat real lava from the 1918 Katla eruption and once molten, pour it into a showroom full of people. It is an incredible, unforgettable experience. In an instant, the showroom heats up to a toasty temperature. And as the audience sits safe in their seats yet only a few feet away from the flowing lava, it is mesmerizing to see, hear, smell and feel the incredible heat that radiates from it. It truly is a sensational experience!

The show begins with a short welcome by the host and then a short educational video about Icelandic volcanism, the volcanoes close by - with special emphasis on Katla volcano - and how the surrounding volcanoes have affected the locals throughout the ages. They even give you a personal story and tell you the evacuation plan in case Katla were to erupt right there and then!

Once the lava starts flowing into the showroom, the host literally starts PLAYING WITH THE LAVA! The host manipulates the lava with an iron rod, creating Pele's hair and tears, a miniature lava tunnel, a little lava cave and explains everything about what's happening as it goes. It is such an intimate, educational and entertaining experience and so different from everything else you've ever experienced, that you can't help feel in awe. And after the show, you truly see the rest of Iceland with different eyes and a newfound appreciation for nature. It really is a must see experience.

Itinerary

LIVE LAVA - FEEL THE HEAT!

We recreate a volcano eruption by superheating real lava up to 1100°C (2000°F) and pouring it into a showroom full of people. It's the only live lava show in the world and the only way to safely experience red-hot lava up close. Come feel the heat!

The only live LAVA SHOW in the world

Volcanoes are fascinating creatures, unpredictable and destructive in nature and you never know when they will erupt. Yet, getting up close and personal with real flowing lava is a bucket-list item and something many people dream about. This is especially true for people traveling to the land of ice and fire and the reason why you need to see the Lava Show in Vík. It is the only live lava show in the world and has become one of the must-see experiences in Iceland! Just look at the incredible reviews!

Important information

We advice people to get there at least 15 minutes before the show, get their bearings and perhaps buy a drink before the show.

It gets HOT in the showroom when the lava pours in so people are advised to remove some layers of clothing before the show starts. The show is a safe experience and the heat should not be an issue but pregnant women, people with infants, and people with cardiovascular diseases are recommended to sit in the second row and/or close to the exit just to be on the safe side. 

Everyone is advised to to keep their safety goggles on at all times during the show there is lava in the showroom, not only while it is in molten form, flowing into the room but also and especially when the lava is cooling down and solidifying.
