Visit the Volcanoes

In this tour, you will enjoy the stunning view of places you would not see on any other tour. You'll venture off the beaten path to visit the volcanoes around Reykjavík, some of which are overdue to erupt! You will hear everything about the volcanic activity and what will most likely that happen in next eruptions.

You'll start the tour by seeing an hour long documentary at the Volcano House. It is an excellent way to warm up for the tour because it will help you imagine what the previous eruptions have looked like - and how the next one is probably going to look!

A professional guide will take you the road less travelled to the black volcanic rock formations and mossy filled lava fields. Your guide will be happy to explain the geology in a way everyone understands and can relate.

It is simply mind blowing when you start to get the big picture, start to see how this island was build up and when you realise how small a man is.

You might also hear stories of trolls, the old Nordic gods, outlaws and the hidden people. If you love stories, love to see beautiful places and get the authentic local experience from people that love to share their passion for this island, this is a tour for you.

This tour is operated by a small family business that likes to give good experiences to small groups. So, coming on a tour should be like finally visiting your exchange student from Iceland and have his family showing you the most exciting places in Iceland. You are going out on a volcano safari with the locals.

There is a maximum of 12 guests per vehicle on this guided tour. Very often the groups count less than 6 people so the experience is the next thing to going on a private tour.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to explore Iceland with the locals. Check booking availability by choosing a date.
