Watch actual lava flow, melting everything in sight on the amazing Icelandic Lava Show in Reykjavík. This is a fantastic exhibition for families, nature lovers, and anyone interested in the destructive powers of volcanoes.
The Icelandic Lava Show has been a popular visitor attraction in South Iceland’s Vík Village for years, but now this magnificent exhibition has finally opened up in the capital. For those on the road, click here for tickets to the Lava Show in Vík.
The Reykjavík Lava Show takes place in the Grandi Area, a short walk from the city centre. The show starts with an introduction to Icelandic volcanoes, with a special focus on the biggest volcanic eruptions in Icelandic history and possible volcanic dangers surrounding the capital area.
Then the lights are dimmed, and the host pours molten lava into the showroom! To recreate a miniature volcanic eruption, the staff superheats real lava from the 1918 Katla eruption. Once molten, you will be able to see it flowing only a few feet away from you! Next, the host will play with the superheated magma, showing how this natural phenomenon consumes everything in its path.
The show is not only educational but a rich sensory experience. You will see the glowing red lava, feel the heat emitted, smell the smoke released, and hear the lava crackle, sizzle, and pop as it slowly crawls towards you.
There is no minimum age for this fantastic live show, meaning that this is a fun activity for the entire family. The exhibition also takes place inside, making it an excellent adventure for cold or rainy days in Iceland.
Experience something different on your trip to Reykjavík and visit the only live lava show in the world! Book now to secure your ticket to this fantastic exhibition.
