Discover the currently erupting volcano of Fagradalsfjall with a local guide with this life-changing 3-hour excursion. Those looking to fit this breathtaking experience into their busy travels - particularly those renting a car - will find this to be a perfect fit.
This tour begins when you meet your guide and the rest of your traveling group on location at Helgi's Street Food, near the village of Grindavik on the Reykjavik Peninsula. After introductions, you'll be led to the parking area for the hike to Fagradalsfjall volcano, where you’ll be dressed in all necessary equipment before starting your trek.
Geldingadalur valley is a beautiful place to walk through, with dramatic, moss-coated lava landscapes and no signs of civilization. As you get closer and closer to Fagradalsfjall volcano, you’ll notice an increasing smell of sulfur and see ash, smoke, and maybe even flames reaching the sky.
Once you reach the flowing rivers of lava, the glowing field of new land, and erupting craters, you’ll be even more amazed. There are few sites on earth as dramatic, primordial, or beautiful as an active volcano, and the chance to see one is incredibly rare and special.
You’ll have around an hour to explore this site; be sure to bring your camera with you. Your charming guide will also be able to tell you all about the processes at work here and answer your questions on all things about Iceland and its volcanic activity.
After an unbelievable experience, you’ll hike back to the car park and can get on with the rest of your day, having made some unforgettable new memories! Because this tour is succinct and meets on location, you’ll have time to explore the other sites of the volcanic Reykjanes Peninsula before heading onto Reykjavik.
