Experience the thrill of hiking toward an erupting volcano by booking this private tour. If you want to witness the impressive Fagradalsfjall volcano in action in the Meradalir valley and see flowing hot lava with your own eyes, then you should book this tour now!

The tour begins at Reykjavik City, where you will be picked up from your accommodation and meet your friendly and knowledgeable guide. It will be quite a difficult journey so you should prepare yourself. 

After leaving the capital, you will drive south along the Reykjanes peninsula, where the region's unique landscapes greet you. You'll pass by some fascinating lava fields and notice smoke and steam rising from the area due to the heightened volcanic activity.

After around forty minutes, you'll arrive at the hike's starting point, and your exciting adventure begins. 

The route will be challenging. You will pass by some steep, rocky terrains, and the heavy wind constantly blowing will affect your agility. Stay aware of your surroundings, but enjoy the lunar landscapes around you as you travel.

You will hike for about five hours, going to and fro, and you will spend an hour on the volcano. As the hike is quite strenuous, it's not recommended for beginners and children, mainly because there are only a few areas where you can turn around if you feel like you can no longer continue the hike. 

The journey might be intense, but it will be all worth it once you witness the fantastic view of the volcanic eruption. Fiery hot magma makes its way from the Earth's core, and scalding hot lava flows down like a river from the mouth of the majestic Fagradalsfjall volcano. Such a spectacular sight will render you speechless.

Due to the nature of the tour, it's recommended that you wear a jacket and boots suitable for rainy and windy weather.

Please also bring enough water and food to sustain you until the end of the hike. Finally, don't forget to bring your camera as you will capture some supremely breathtaking volcanic scenes.

After the tour, you will head back to Reykjavik city, where you can refresh yourself after a day of adventure.

This tour is your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness one of nature's powerful activities, so you should grab your chance now. 

Experience a life-changing event of a volcano erupting before your very eyes and make your trip to Iceland one of the most unforgettable memories you'll ever have. Check availability now by choosing a date.
