Reaching the safe-marked area, you'll be in awe as you witness the mesmerizing lava flows and occasional small eruptions.

The return journey will follow the same path back to the starting point, where your vehicle will be waiting to take you back to Reykjavik, concluding the excursion.

This small-group tour offers a fantastic 1:16 ratio, ensuring an intimate experience with your guide. The hike is moderate in difficulty, making it suitable for participants aged 12 years and above with good physical fitness.

To ensure your comfort during the hike, make sure to wear sturdy trekking boots and bring optional walking sticks. It's essential to carry enough water, food, and other necessary provisions for the entire day, as Iceland's weather can be unpredictable. Therefore, don't forget to bring warm and waterproof clothing that can be easily adjusted as needed.
