Overview

See the beautiful but terrifying lava flow from Iceland’s newest volcano in Geldingadalur Valley. Travel only with your favourite people to the active volcano on the Reykjanes Peninsula on this rarest of travel adventures.

It’s not every day you’ll have the chance to see a volcanic eruption for yourself. Although Iceland is one of the most volcanically active countries in the world, visiting an erupting volcano is usually only reserved for scientists. So we can safely say that this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

On this privately guided tour, you’ll not only visit the site of an active volcano, but you’ll do so within the safety of your travel bubble. The only people on this tour are the ones you are already travelling with, which allows you to remain safe and have your guide’s full attention throughout the excursion.

You can choose to be picked up in Reykjavík or meet your guide in the town of Grindavík, located on the Reykjanes Peninsula. The guide will then lead you through the rough and rocky terrain of Geldingadalur Valley. The hike can take around 1 and ½ hours one way, so make sure you’ll bring proper hiking boots. Your guide will have crampons to lend you if the path is icy. 

Once you near the site, you’ll begin to hear the hissing, sizzling sounds of the spewing lava, and you’ll feel the heat coming from the glowing magma. You’ll spend some time walking around the area, watching the lava flow consume everything in its path. 

The guide will show you different vantage points, so you can take epic pictures to share with your friends and family back home. You will stay at the eruption for 2 hours if the weather allows, given you plenty of time to fully enjoy this spectacular natural wonder.
