Have you ever wondered how it feels to be near a volcano, gazing down on the pouring hot lava? Well, this is your chance!
About the tour
Iceland’s latest attraction made its presence felt even before being visible to the curious visitors. In February 2021, the inhabitants of the Reyjanes area, where the volcano is located, experienced more than 40 000 tremors before the actual eruption commenced on the 19th of March in the evening.
If you are adventurous enough, this will be your perfect chance to see an active volcano in its full glory and see the process of something new being born.
Our trained guides will bring you as close as possible to the start of the hiking trail and you will start your hike to the actual sight.
The hike is around 3 kilometers one way and a moderate level of fitness is required as we have to walk up one steep hill before we reach the plateau. Once we get there, we can already spot the volcano in the distance. We will spend some time in the area to take stunning photos and videos.
After our hike back we will go to the Blue Lagoon. The beneficial powers of geothermal water were first discovered in the early 1980s when local residents began to bathe in the serene blue lagoon that had formed in the lava field beside the Svartsengi Geothermal Resource Park. Today, many decades after the first inquisitive souls began venturing into the water, the Blue Lagoon has blossomed from a humble curiosity into a wellspring of wonder. You can choose between three different packages during the checkout process. The admission to the Blue Lagoon is included in the price (comfort package), the upgrades to the different packages are available at extra cost.
