Fagradalsfjall Active Volcano Site Hike and Blue Lagoon Day Tour from Reykjavik
Enjoy two unforgettable Icelandic experiences by combining a visit to the active eruption site at Fagradalsfjall volcano in the Meradalir valley with a dip into the world-famous Blue Lagoon. Eruptions are rare and unpredictable, so make the most of this unique opportunity to see a live volcano and be sure to book this tour!
The day will start when you meet your guide and group at your predetermined Reykjavik meeting point and board your bus. You'll then take the 40-minute drive across the Reykjanes Peninsula towards the Fagradalsfjall volcano. On clear days, you'll see the historic lava fields of the area from your window.
The Reykjanes Peninsula is renowned for its cone-shaped mountains, countless craters, moss-covered lava fields, and rugged coast. Your guide will tell you about the area's geology, history, and folklore as you get closer to the site and will answer any questions you might have.
You'll then come to a parking lot, where you will hike to the eruption site. This journey can be a little challenging for some and can take up to an hour, so be sure to bring good hiking boots and a bottle of water. The reward at the end is well worth the effort.
After all, there are few sites as dramatic as the view over Fagradalsfjall volcano. Twisted, brittle rock formations characterize these lava fields. You will be able to see lava spewing up from the large fissure in the ground and you will smell burning moss. The whole landscape radiates a haunting beauty.
Your guide will have briefed you on staying safe as you explore and will be close by if you have any questions.
Once this unforgettable experience is complete, you'll return to the bus, where you can reflect on this awe-inspiring encounter with nature's power. This adventure is not over, however; you'll now head to the most famous spa in the country and bask in the Blue Lagoon.
The azure waters here have incredible healing properties, and there are steam rooms, saunas, and silica masks for you to enjoy. After your volcano experience, this is also a great place to enjoy the more gentle side of Iceland's volcanism.
You can take the spa's magic home with you by checking out the Blue Lagoon shop's wide range of products, all infused with the unique minerals of these waters.
Once you are fully recharged, you'll be transported back to Reykjavik.
