Full description

Discover the exhilaration of looking for red-hot lava flows at the Fagradalsfjall volcano on this day trip from Reykjavik. Admire the volcanic landscapes of the Reykjanes Peninsula as you hike up the volcano with a local guide. Delight your taste buds with some Lava chocolate.

Get picked up in Reykjavík and set off for the volcanic eruption site at the Reykjanes Peninsula, where the first volcanic activity in the area after about 800 years recently happened. See how the lava slowly comes up to the surface from a close distance.

Your 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, see the crater where the lava was coming from.

Continue the hike around the Fagradalsfjall Volcano until you find the best location to sit and enjoy the view before heading back down.

Head to the bridge between continents and to the geothermal area of Gunnuhver, where you will see boiling hot springs. Before the end of your trip, choose to visit the Blue Lagoon to dip your body into its salty waters (costs not included).

Our tour of Fagradalsfjall with Cora was fantastic. The volcano hike was exactly what we expected - we were able to hike to the crater and feel heat emanating from the cracks in the recent lava flows. The extra stops along the Reykjanes Pennisula were very interesting. Highly recommend this tour.

So it poured rain on the volcano hike, which was A VIBE. But it was more like being in a raincloud than anything else… our guide even said “Um… this is insane.” But was such a trooper. I needed a Gortex jacket instead of my simple rain jacket in the long run- and I was soaked through all 5 of my layers. And I honestly was the best off out of the group. I think bringing rain ponchos as backup would be a HUGE bonus for this guide company. I liked seeing the hot spots and tectonic plates, but I think we would have enjoyed things more if we weren’t all soaked to the bone. Which wasn’t any ones fault and almost everyone had a great attitude. The Blue Lagoon was AMAZING and our guide was awesome getting us in and explaining. I would say that as someone hiking on a volcano I would like to know more facts about it besides “it was national news, I am sure you saw.” And “the water is blue bc minerals.” That would have been the extra mile- but recommend this trip despite any weather!

I took a volcano hike the other day with Kora as our guide. She was very entertaining and took great care of our group. She shared with us her knowledge of the geological forces of volcanos, and she also shared delightful information about the other places we visited, the land bridge and the Gunnuhuver geyser and Valahnukamol, And beyond that she shared general information about Iceland’s culture and history. She was positive and professional. Highly recommended!
