Full description
Get picked up in Reykjavík and set off for the experience of a lifetime, as you hike to a volcanic eruption at Geldingadalur. Head for the volcanic eruption at the Reykjanes Peninsula – where the first volcanic activity in the area for about 800 years is happening. The lava slowly coming up to the surface gives you a chance to experience this amazing natural wonder from a close distance. Our guide will hike up to the volcano with you and tell you all you need to know about the new Fagradalsfjall volcano. The hike is about 1.5-2 hours and has a moderate level of difficulty. Once you arrive, you'll get the chance to see the hot flowing lava of the volcanic eruption. We'll hike around the Fagradalsfjall volcano until we find the best location to sit and enjoy the view, before heading back down.

    Enjoyed the trip overall. The guide led the group of 17 people and waited when the group separated due to slower hikers. But when slow people caught up, he started hiking again so slower walkers did not get a break. Luckily that was only a few people. Loved the treat when we got to the top!!!

    The tour was well organised and well lead by the guide Siggi, his energy and enthusiasm is something special. He will definitely put a smile on your face. Unfortunately Mother Nature did not bless us with any volcano activity but she did bless us with sunshine and decent temperatures. All in all it was a great day and we really enjoyed it.

    This trip was perfect! Just the right length to really get a great look at the volcano and the scenery, but not too long so as to get hungry or bored. The guide was really good- he gave us lots of info but didn’t overwhelm us. He kept up a good pace but also helped people who had a tougher time keeping up.
