Description

Journey into the depths of a lava cave and visit an active volcano on the Reykjanes Peninsula with this private eight-hour tour departing from Reykjavik. Travelers who want to explore the Fagradalsfjall volcano, go lava caving, and discover the Krysuvik geothermal area should book this tour today.

The adventure begins at your accommodation in Reykjavik, where your expert local guide will collect you in a fully electric vehicle. You'll travel out of the city toward the Reykjanes Peninsula, known for its volcanic and tectonic activity.

This excursion is a private tour, so you'll have access to your own guide and can ask as many questions as you like.

Your transportation is in an electric Mercedes charged with 100 percent renewable energy. The tour provider also plants a tree for every tour, so you can relax knowing your experience isn't harming the environment. 

The day's first stop will be the Krysuvik geothermal area, full of hot springs, mud pots, steaming vents, and beautiful mineral deposits that color the earth. Your guide will tell you about geothermal energy in Iceland as you enjoy the extraordinary views surrounding you.

From here, you'll continue to the Fagradalsfjall volcano site. This volcano erupted in March 2021 and August 2022, and the newly formed lava fields remain hot. You'll take a short hike to the viewpoint to admire the view and learn about how the recent eruptions have changed the peninsula's landscape.

Once you've returned from the volcano, you'll make a short stop for lunch at a local restaurant where you can try local delicacies. You can bring a packed lunch if you prefer. 

When you've refueled, your guide will take you to the Leidarendi lava cave. This lava tube is a fantastic place to visit if you want to learn more about volcanic activity and geology in Iceland. 

Your guide will provide safety gear, including a helmet and a torch. You'll enter the tunnel, looking at stalactites and stalagmites as you go. You'll also see how minerals have given the walls of the cave different colors.

Some crawling is required to reach the most exciting parts of the cave, including the 100-year-old bones of a ram that got lost there. As you go through the cave, your guide will explain how it formed and what features to look out for.

At the end of the day, you'll return to Reykjavik in time for dinner at a restaurant or a relaxing evening at your accommodation. 

Don't miss this opportunity to visit the Fagradalsfjall volcano site and explore a lava cave with a private guide. Check availability now by choosing a date.
