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.

    Absolutely breathtaking views from the top. You need to be generally of good health and fitness to do the hike (there’s a few steep bits and it’s windy at the top). But I don’t regularly exercise and managed ok as we had stops along the way for photos and the guide to tell us about the hike. He was excellent Carlos was his name and he was attentive and made sure we were all ok. The views from the top were stunning and amazing to see the lava still steaming

    Well the weather was terrible and we didn’t get to do main hike to see volcano. It wouldn’t matter zero visability. Our guide Maggie did an amazing job to salvage the day. She got us to the lava fields with one hour before they were going to close the roads. The info she shared about anything Icelandic made the trip worth it for me. From climate change to roles of Icelandic women and men in Icelandic society to “Ya Ya Ding Dong” was not a real Icelandic song love her!

    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!!!
