Description

Set off on a thrilling trip to the site of the recent volcano of Fagradalsfjall with a friendly, local guide, and combine it with visits to several other gems of the Reykjanes Peninsula with this fantastic 6-hour excursion. Conducted both in the morning and in the late evening, this essential tour is easy to fit into the schedule of a busy traveler to Iceland!

This tour begins when you are picked up from your Reykjavik hotel at a time more convenient for you (unless you elect to meet the operator on location). You'll greet your experienced guide and the rest of your traveling group and set out for the nearby Reykjanes Peninsula.

This region is renowned for its dramatic lava landscapes, with conic volcanoes, fields of jagged basalt, geothermal areas, and geological marvels. 

You will make three stops at the region's beautiful spots as you travel. Kleifarvatn is the largest lake in the area, with hot springs and fascinating history as the site of a dramatic earthquake. Krisuvikurleid is a spectacular driving route that curves around the lake, surrounded by jagged peaks and steeped in idyllic beauty.

You'll next make a brief stop at the geothermal area of Seltún, where you can marvel over hissing vents, bubbling mud pits, and brightly colored water and earth.

Finally, you'll get to the parking area to hike to the Fagradalsfjall volcano. Your guide will dress you in the necessary equipment before leading you into Geldingdadalur valley, where this volcano erupted throughout much of 2021. You'll be able to marvel over black, twisted lava that is still hot to the touch and some of the newest land on earth.

After enjoying this magical site, you'll head back to Reykjavik with some once-in-a-lifetime memories.

Grab this opportunity to witness the recently dormant volcano of Fagradalsfjall alongside a wealth of Reykjanes attractions! Check availability now by choosing a date.
