Have your breath taken away by the unbelievable power of the Fagradalsfjall volcano and fill the rest of your day with a sightseeing tour around the other beautiful parts of the Reykjanes Peninsula by booking this tour. Anyone traveling to Iceland at this exciting moment should not miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
This fantastic excursion starts when you are picked up from Reykjavik in the morning; you’ll meet your group and a friendly, local guide who is trained to make your adventure as safe as possible. Once you’re all gathered, you’ll begin the 40-minute drive from the capital to the parking area of the path to Geldingadalur valley, where the Fagradalsfjall volcano is located.
On this trip, you’ll be able to look out on the cone-shaped volcanoes and lava fields from eruptions past, as you get ever-closer to the smoke billowing from the present one.
The hike itself takes just over an hour, crossing some rough terrain; so long as you bring good hiking boots, warm clothes, and a bottle of water, you should be fine. Any stress from the effort, however, will be immediately wiped away by the beautiful wilderness unfolding before you.
Fagradalsfjall’s volcanic eruption is one of the most magnificent sites to see on the planet at the minute. Craters and ravines spewing flames, rivers of bright orange rock, and an ever-growing and ever-glowing lava field you can get within meters of, this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime chance to marvel over the forces of the underworld.
After making the most of this site and creating memories that will stay with you forever, you’ll return to the bus, and begin your tour over the other highlights of the Reykjanes Peninsula.
Some of these sites are cultural, such as the abandoned shacks of fishermen from past centuries and the country’s oldest lighthouse, Reykjanesviti. Others are great examples of geological and geothermal forces, such as the Bridge Between the Continents, which divides the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, the large lake of Kleifarvatn with its unique hot springs, and the mud pit of Gunnhver.
After this incredible tour, you’ll be returned to Reykjavik.
