Itinerary

The erupting volcano in Icelands' Fagradalsfjall is ongoing for the first time in 7000 years and now is the time to come see nature wonder happening before our eyes. This true geothermal wonderland starts with a scenic drive through fairy-like lava fields covered in a thick layer of green moss past the majestic Lake Kleifarvatn, stopping by the colorful Seltún Hot Springs Geothermal area at Krýsuvík before we hike into Geldingadalur Valley to see the live volcanic activity all around. You will be able to enjoy your packed dinner while watching lava flowing from the volcano. On the way back from this unique experience seeing moss and land in the making we will drive through the Reykjanes Peninsula where previous volcanos have formed now rock hard formations and soft lava moss. 

Fagradalsfjall Volcano

An active volcano and naturally warm healing waters is something that you don't see every day and in this tour volcanic- and geothermal activity run the scene to make this a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The beautiful backcountry of Reykjanes Peninsula offers variated scenery, natural phenomena, and places of stunning beauty and is only a short distance from Reykjavík! Being so close to the nature-surrounded capital Reykjavík, a tour to the active volcano in Geldingadalir and gives you the great opportunity to visit a number of interesting places at a relaxed pace without much time spent on the road.

The Peninsula of Reykjanes is a true volcanic wonder hosting unique natural phenomenon; open rift zones, mossy covered lava-fields, geothermal fields, mountain lakes, fishing villages, and breathtaking coastal features. Reykjanes lies on one of the world’s major plate boundaries, the Mid Atlantic Ridge in between the tectonic plates of Eurasia and North America, drifting apart from one another resulting in open fissures and volcanic activity.
