Join this sightseeing expedition to enjoy and experience stunning views of volcanoes, plateaus and mesmerising mountains. This is an excellent option for those really looking to gain an insight into Iceland's geological history, as well as the current effects that volcanoes have on the environment.

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 as it greatly helps to imagine what previous eruptions might have looked, as well as how future ones may arise.

When the film is finished, 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 happen in the century's upcoming eruptions.

You will then take the road less travelled to some jet-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.

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.

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.

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

Good to know

The weather in Iceland changes quickly. Your guides customise each tour to make it the best possible experience for you. This means the tour is never exactly the same. It is like at some restaurants when you ask the chef to make something out of the freshest fish available—the guides choose the best places to enjoy every time based on the weather and your wishes. :)
