Description

Embark on a hiking adventure on the newest volcano in Iceland and end your day with a satisfying geothermal bath by booking this 12-hour Fagradalsfjall volcano on Reykjanes peninsula and Sky Lagoon combo tour. If you want to experience different sides to the land of fire and ice, this tour from Reykjavik is for you.

Your tour starts as you arrive at the BSI bus terminal, where the excursion departs. For your convenience, you also have the option to have a hotel pick-up for an extra fee. In addition, you’ll meet your guide here, who will be your source of information and assistance for the adventure.

Aboard a comfortable bus with spacious seats and free Wi-Fi, the tour will take you to the best sites in the Reykjanes Peninsula, with most of your time spent exploring the eruption site of Fagradalsjall volcano in Meradalir valley. You’ll witness otherworldly landscapes as you drive along the peninsula, from unique lava fields to the beautiful coastline.

First to see are the mud pools of Seltun, 22 miles (36 kilometers) from Reykjavik. The colorful hot pools and fumaroles of Seltun are amazing to marvel at, with steam vents dotting the whole area. 

Additional stops are at the Gunnuhver geothermal field and the Bridge Between Continents. More than the impressive mud pool of Gunnuhver, the former attraction is best known for its exciting folklore that your guide will share with you. Meanwhile, the Bridge Between Continents will allow you to walk between two continental plates for an exceptional experience. 

The highlight of your Reykjanes tour is hiking to the Fagradalsfjall volcano, which erupted in 2021 and 2022. At the eruption site in Meradalir valley, expect to see fresh lava fields and remnants of the dramatic volcanic event. Additional volcanic eruptions in the region took place in 2023 and 2024, making it highly active after remaining dormant for over 1000 years.

Your hike to the Icelandic volcano begins at the trailhead near the fishing town of Grindavik. From here, the group will pass through easy to challenging terrain along rugged and barren landscapes. Once you reach your destination, a breathtaking view of the valley and surrounding areas will welcome you. 

After a thrilling sightseeing and hiking experience in Reykjanes Peninsula, you’ll head back to the Icelandic capital to visit the Sky Lagoon.

The Sky Lagoon is one of the best places to experience a geothermal bath away from tourist crowds. Apart from its infinity pools, the excellent location of the Icelandic spa by the Atlantic Ocean makes it the perfect place to relax after a tiring day.

The famous seven-step spa ritual is part of your Pure Pass ticket at the Sky Lagoon. This admission also includes access to changing facilities and towel use. You can also rent a swimsuit at the facility if you don’t intend to bring one.

After a rejuvenating geothermal bath, you’ll return to Reykavik, where the tour formally ends.
