See the active volcano currently erupting in Iceland on this once in a lifetime adventure. Travel with a professional guide to the eruption site to safely view this amazing natural phenomenon.

On this tour, you’ll be picked up from Reykjavík by your friendly, knowledgeable guide. You’ll travel to the Reykjanes Peninsula, where you’ll hike to the volcano in Geldingadalur Valley. You’ll get plenty of time to view the spewing lava, take photos, and simply experience this geological wonder for yourself.

Get ready for a long hike across rugged terrain. It takes around an hour and a half to reach the volcano from the parking lot. So, make sure you are able to walk for at least 3-hours on uneven ground before booking this tour. Your guide will have crampons to lend you should there be any ice en route.

You will stay at the volcano for at least two hours, allowing you to fully take in the surrounding spectacular scenery. Your guide will take photos of you in front of the flowing magma, making sure to capture different angles if the weather allows. Once you´ve uploaded your snapshots to social media (there is free wifi on board the minibus), you are sure to be the envy of all your friends back home.

Iceland is one of the most volcanically active countries in the world, but not all eruptions are safe to visit. Though there are always dangers when visiting an erupting volcano, the area of Geldingadalur is constantly monitored and is deemed safe to visit. Your guide will make sure to keep up with the latest information on the region and watch out for any potential hazards.
