Enter an unimaginable, Mordor-like world in Iceland by booking this excursion to the magnificent Fagradalsfjall volcano and Reykjanes GeoPark. If you want to witness where an incredible display of the earth's power just occurred in the land of ice and fire, this is the tour for you.

This adventure starts in the capital of Reykjavik, where you'll greet your experienced guide and join your group on the bus.

Once everyone is gathered, you'll depart the city and begin your drive towards the site where the Fagradalsfjall volcano recently erupted. 

As you travel, be sure to look out the windows at the jagged lava fields, dramatic mountains, and beautiful seascapes of the Reykjanes Peninsula, and listen as your guide tells you local tales and the story of how the eruption began and ceased.

They can also answer your questions about other landmarks in the area and the folklore of the Reykjanes Peninsula. After all, this region has many tales of trolls, elves, ghosts, and witches.

You will make several stops at interesting points in the Reykjanes GeoPark based on the conditions. 

There were no deaths or serious injuries during the Fagradalsfjall eruption, but its fumes were dangerous, and its plumes of lava were visible from Reykjavik at points. Furthermore, it may mark the beginning of future volcanoes going off along the Reykjanes Peninsula.

Before the eruption, there were also many earthquakes that shook Reykjanes and Reykjavik for several weeks, warning residents that such an event was coming. Though they caused quite a scare, the buildings of Iceland are built to withstand strong tremors.

Once you get near your breathtaking destination, you'll depart the bus and begin the hike required to reach it. Though your pace will be comfortable, this does go over some rough terrain, so bring good hiking boots and a bottle of water!

Finally, Fagradalsfjall will unfold before you in all its glory. You'll be breath taken as you explore along the edge of its still-hot lava field, witness its massive craters, and shoot some of the most spectacular photos and videos. Your guide will have already briefed you on how to stay safe.

You'll have 1.5 hours to absorb the area's majesty before returning to the bus and being driven back to Reykjavik. As you travel, marvel over the images and footage you have taken, and bask in the unforgettable memories you have just created.

Embark on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to witness the earth open at Fagradalsfjall in Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.
