Join us on this unique experience to see an active volcano. You can expect a hike for about an hour and a half each way making this a combined hike of 3 hours through the rugged and raw terrain on the Reykjanes Peninsula. We focus on spending time at the volcano itself meaning we will stay by the eruption for at least two hours. We include photos on this tour, and try to view the volcano from different angles (weather depending).

Geldingadalur Volcano Eruption
After approx. 50 min. drive from Reykjavík we set off for the hike up to the volcano site. A 1.5 -2 hour walk to the eruption can be expected. There we will stop, take pictures and enjoy watching magma gushing from the volcano for over 2 hours.
If conditions allow, we will walk around the volcano area to view the volcano from different angles.
Note: We reserve the right to alter the itinerary according to weather and road conditions.
Please be aware: The volcano site is sometimes closed by the authorities due to bad weather and/or gas pollution, both of which can be very dangerous. Should this happen we will cancel your tour and offer a full refund.
