Embark on an experience you will never forget and witness a spectacular volcanic eruption on a small-group, personalised tour! This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity should not be missed by anyone currently in or soon travelling to Iceland, as no one knows how long this breathtaking display of the earth’s most primordial forces will last. 

Iceland’s current ongoing eruption is occurring at Fagradalsfjall Volcano, in the Geldingadalur area of the Reykjanes Peninsula. Your adventure to its magnificent lava plumes and molten rivers begins when you are picked up from the nearby fishing town of Grindavik, less than an hour's drive from Reykjavik. As you travel to the meeting point, you’ll note the lunar landscapes, craters, and conic peaks of the Reykjanes Peninsula, revealing the extent to which this region has been shaped by Iceland's volcanoes in the past.

Your friendly, experienced guide will meet you at a pre-arranged meeting point and escort you to the isolated valley where the eruption is occurring. As there are no other guests taking their attention, feel free to ask as many questions as you like. Once you get as close to the volcano as possible, you'll begin your trek into the barren surrounding wilderness; hiking boots can be rented if yours aren’t up for the rugged terrain.

Once you reach the Fagradalsfjall eruption site in Geldingadalur, you'll be breath-taken in a way that few other sites on the planet can provide. The vivid reds and oranges of the molten rock; the ever-changing shapes in the glowing rivers; the fountains of fire; the sounds of the earth bursting apart - there is no greater spectacle than the unbridled forces of an active volcano. 

Take as many enviable photos as you like, but be sure also to enjoy this incredible moment, as very few people will be lucky enough to marvel over such a rare and spectacular phenomenon.

After a life-changing experience before the most magnificent of mother nature’s forces, your guide will escort you safely back to your vehicle in Grindavik. Even as you drive away, you'll be able to see the mesmerising smoke and glow from the eruption site for many miles.

Grab onto this awe-inspiring opportunity to watch an Icelandic volcano erupt on a small-group tour while you still have the chance! Check availability by choosing a date.
