See the newly formed lava field from the latest volcanic eruption in Iceland!

Your tour will begin late in the day, allowing you to spend the rest of it exploring the countryside or taking it easy in Reykjavik. Your friendly, expert guide will pick you up from a predetermined meeting point in the capital, and you'll set off along the Reykjanes peninsula towards the recent eruption of the Sundhnukagigar volcano.

In clear weather, you'll be able to admire the unique lunar landscapes of this region as you travel to the volcano. Reykjanes is characterized by jagged coastlines, cone-shaped dormant volcanoes, geothermal lakes, and moss-coated lava fields.

As you travel, feel free to ask your guide questions about the surrounding landscapes, life in Iceland, the science of volcanic eruptions, or the folklore of the area. The Reykjanes peninsula is renowned for its stories of trolls, ghosts, witches, and elves.

You'll stop by the trail to your destination for a briefing. We recommend bringing good hiking boots and a bottle of water. Bringing a sandwich or some sustenance is also a good idea, as there is no infrastructure or open shops in the area. Once you reach its end, you will see the incredible site of the Sundhnukagigar eruptions in the distance.

Nearby Litli-Hrutur volcano started erupting on July 10th 2023, and ended on August 5th. The 2022 eruption of Fagradalsfjall lasted for 3 weeks, while the 2021 eruption in Meradalir valley lasted for months. Since then, more eruptions have accrued, though these have not been as visitor-friendly. In total, there have been six eruptions in just four years on the Reykjanes peninsula.

Following your time here, you'll return to Reykjavik with incredible new memories, photos, and stories to share with family and friends.

Make the most of this amazing opportunity to see a brand new piece of the earth in Iceland! Choose a date and check for availability.
