Thrihnukagigur Volcano Tour | Go Inside a Magma Chamber

Descend into the vast and vibrant magma chamber of a dormant volcano. Iceland is the only place in the world where a tour like this exists, so do not miss your opportunity.This trip will begin when you are picked up from Reykjavík and taken to the Blue Mountains Country Park, Bláfjöll, which sits just on the outskirts of the capital area. From here, it is just a 3.2 kilometre (two mile) hike to Þríhnúkagígur volcano, where you will descend into the volcano itself.Once you reach the crater, you will find an opening and an elevator crane. After being equipped with a helmet and harness, you will enter the lift's basket and begin your descent. Nowhere else in the world can you enter a magma chamber this way, which is part of what makes this tour so unique and worthwhile. This lift journey toward the centre of the earth covers 198 metres and takes about six minutes.During your slow descent, the beauty of the magma chamber will become instantly apparent. Intense heat and pressure from Þríhnúkagígur’s most recent eruption, over four thousand years ago, gave the rocks an incredible colouration and texture. Expect to see smooth walls and bizarre formations in yellows, blues, reds, violets and oranges, so vibrant that it’s difficult to believe that they could be natural.It is not just the beauty of the space that will awe you; it is also the sheer scale of it. To give some perspective on the size of the chamber, enormous monuments such as the Statue of Liberty and Reykjavík’s iconic Hallgrímskirkja church could easily fit inside it. The ground within the chamber is large enough to fit three basketball fields. Once your descent down the chamber is complete, your guide will let you out of the elevator, and you can explore for half an hour on the ground of the volcano. You will want your camera on hand, as everything, from the blades of light falling from overhead to the most minute details of the lava rock, is worthy of a photograph. Remember as you explore that it is only by a strange, unexpected geological process that this tour is even possible; when a volcano becomes dormant, the magma chamber usually cools and solidifies, yet for some reason in Þríhnúkagígur, it drained away, leaving behind this unimaginably beautiful space.After your exploration, you will return to the elevator for a gentle ascent, back into the bright, open world. Once you reach the surface, you will have a meal of Icelandic meat soup waiting for you, along with hot beverages and snacks, which you can enjoy before hiking back to the van.This experience is truly once-in-a-lifetime; descend into a dormant volcano to explore its stunning magma chamber. Do not let this opportunity pass you by.

Zodiac Boat Tour of Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

Hop on board a speedy Zodiac inflatable boat for a tour among the massive icebergs of Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. This is part of an essential Icelandic experience, admiring the sun shining through the clouds on the blue-and-white ice floating peacefully from the lagoon.Boat tours began at the lagoon in 1985, after the opening sequence of the Bond film A View to a Kill was shot on location. Today, they are one of the most popular activities in Iceland, and three other major motion pictures have been shot on the lagoon to catch the unbelievable scenery.The glacier lagoon has been expanding since the 1970s due to the retreat of Vatnajökull glacier, pulling back from the coastline. It is now the deepest lake in Iceland, filling with ancient ice that cracks off of Breiðamerkurjökull glacial tongue, floating down rivers of meltwater to the glacier, where they float slowly out to sea, pulled by the tides.In good weather, gulls and seals often play on the ice. Photographers love to capture these animals, along with the huge chunks of ice as they float by or wash up on nearby Diamond Beach and lie sparkling on the black sand like diamonds on velvet.After making your way to Jökulsárlón to meet your group 30 minutes before tour departure, you’ll be provided with flotation suits and a life jacket. The small, low construction of the Zodiac boats allows you to explore a large area of the lagoon and get up close and personal with the ice (as close as safety allows).Take this opportunity to whizz across the magnificent glacier lagoon in a high-powered Zodiac!

Snaefellsnes National Park | Small Group Day Tour

Jump aboard this captivating tour to the Snæfellsnes peninsula. Sometimes called ‘Iceland in Miniature’ due to its vast diversity of landscapes, this is the perfect trip for those who seek to capture the true spirit and beauty of this incredible island. This is a small-group minibus tour for a maximum of 19 people, allowing for a comfortable and personal experience.You’ll be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavík in the morning, then head north-west. While the immediate surrounding scenery will be of rolling farmlands, it will diversify as soon as you reach the peninsula. You will cruise between the beautiful, rocky coast and a long range of mountains to your first destination: the Snæfellsjökull subglacial volcano.Often called ‘the crown jewel of the peninsula’, Snæfellsjökull is a magnificent, cone-shaped volcano adorned with ice throughout the year. Its beauty has inspired writers and artists for centuries, most notably Jules Verne; his novel ‘A Journey to the Centre of the Earth’ is set here.After admiring this incredible natural landmark, you will head to the charming farm of Ytri-Tunga to see its resident seal colony. These creatures, which spend hours hauling out on the shore, are a pleasure to observe, as they lazily sun themselves with little concern for those observing them. Animal-lovers would do well to keep an eye on the ocean around here too, as Snæfellsnes is one of the best places in the country to spot orcas from the shore.You will next see the charming villages of Arnarstapi and Hellnar, which are said to be steeped in magic and folklore. They are located in a lovely coastal area, which is dotted with beautiful rock formations and dramatic cliffs.The most notable of these geological formations are the two basalt columns called Lóndrangar, so tall and striking that many have compared them to a castle. Near these, you will have a chance to wander along a gorgeous black beach, Djúpalónssandur, the cliffs of which are home to many nesting seabirds.At Djúpalónssandur, you’ll find a curiosity on the beach: four large, smooth stones. They are ‘lifting stones’, once used to measure the strength of fishermen who worked and lived along the coasts here. Your guide will tell you what each was called, and you can see how well you would have risen to the challenge of moving them.Your final stop will be at the most photographed mountain in all of Iceland. Kirkjufell rises alone from a sea of green hills and wildflowers, surrounded by trickling rivers and little waterfalls; it is without a doubt one of the most scenic areas in the country. You’ll want to have your camera on hand when exploring this beautiful feature.The Snæfellnes peninsula is one of the country’s most beautiful spots. Don’t miss your opportunity to see 'Iceland in Miniature'. Check availability by choosing a date.

Whale Watching Tour from Reykjavik

Jump aboard this whale-watching excursion to see the incredible wealth of marine wildlife just off Reykjavík’s shores. This tour is a must for nature-lovers, and fits perfectly into a busy holiday; you leave straight from the capital city’s Old Harbour and return approximately three hours later.You will arrive at the harbour in good time for your departure, either by making your way there yourself or through a pick-up you can request during booking. If taking this trip during summer, you will have a choice between two boats, which you can select based on your sense of adventure and the nature of your group.The first vessel, and the only one operated year-round, is one of the largest whale-watching boats in Iceland. It has a fantastic educational and interactive focus on board, where you can learn more about the whales, as well as a café.The second vessel is one of our newest additions to the fleet, a fast-cruising catamaran. It promises to get you to the prime whale-watching location in just twenty minutes so that you can immerse yourself in the activity immediately. These express tours are only available during the summer months. Trips on this tour are approximately an hour shorter.On the first boat, you will spend roughly three hours out on the ocean looking for whales (approx. two hours on the second). As you travel out, your guide will point out the natural features surrounding the capital; in clear weather, you should be able to see both the Reykjanes Peninsula and the Snæfellsnes peninsula, as well as the ‘whale fjord’, otherwise called Hvalfjörður. Four species can be regularly seen on these tours: harbour porpoises, white-beaked dolphins, Minke Whales and Humpback Whales. It is not at all unheard of, however, to see orcas (or killer whales), pilot whales, Fin Whales, and even Basking Sharks. On top of these incredible animals, during summer you can expect to see a wealth of seabirds, most notably including the puffin. Your experienced guides can answer any questions you have as you hunt for and marvel over these majestic creatures. Each tour yields entirely different results. The animals’ behaviour change throughout the day; you might catch them breaching, socialising, feeding or just basking near the surface. If by chance, you are not lucky enough to see a marine mammal, you will have another opportunity to take this tour for free until you do.You will return to Reykjavík after three hours on the sea, hopefully after many exciting sightings and an up-close look at some of Iceland’s marvellous creatures. Because of the convenience and length of this tour, there will still be plenty of opportunities to make the most of the rest of your day, either on another tour or within the capital.Do not miss your chance to see the magnificent whales, dolphins and porpoises of Iceland. Set sail into Faxaflói bay for your opportunity. Check availability by choosing a date.

Thrihnukagigur Volcano Tour | Go Inside a Magma Chamber

Descend into the vast and vibrant magma chamber of a dormant volcano. Iceland is the only place in the world where a tour like this exists, so do not miss your opportunity.This trip will begin when you are picked up from Reykjavík and taken to the Blue Mountains Country Park, Bláfjöll, which sits just on the outskirts of the capital area. From here, it is just a 3.2 kilometre (two mile) hike to Þríhnúkagígur volcano, where you will descend into the volcano itself.Once you reach the crater, you will find an opening and an elevator crane. After being equipped with a helmet and harness, you will enter the lift's basket and begin your descent. Nowhere else in the world can you enter a magma chamber this way, which is part of what makes this tour so unique and worthwhile. This lift journey toward the centre of the earth covers 198 metres and takes about six minutes.During your slow descent, the beauty of the magma chamber will become instantly apparent. Intense heat and pressure from Þríhnúkagígur’s most recent eruption, over four thousand years ago, gave the rocks an incredible colouration and texture. Expect to see smooth walls and bizarre formations in yellows, blues, reds, violets and oranges, so vibrant that it’s difficult to believe that they could be natural.It is not just the beauty of the space that will awe you; it is also the sheer scale of it. To give some perspective on the size of the chamber, enormous monuments such as the Statue of Liberty and Reykjavík’s iconic Hallgrímskirkja church could easily fit inside it. The ground within the chamber is large enough to fit three basketball fields. Once your descent down the chamber is complete, your guide will let you out of the elevator, and you can explore for half an hour on the ground of the volcano. You will want your camera on hand, as everything, from the blades of light falling from overhead to the most minute details of the lava rock, is worthy of a photograph. Remember as you explore that it is only by a strange, unexpected geological process that this tour is even possible; when a volcano becomes dormant, the magma chamber usually cools and solidifies, yet for some reason in Þríhnúkagígur, it drained away, leaving behind this unimaginably beautiful space.After your exploration, you will return to the elevator for a gentle ascent, back into the bright, open world. Once you reach the surface, you will have a meal of Icelandic meat soup waiting for you, along with hot beverages and snacks, which you can enjoy before hiking back to the van.This experience is truly once-in-a-lifetime; descend into a dormant volcano to explore its stunning magma chamber. Do not let this opportunity pass you by.

Zodiac Boat Tour of Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

Hop on board a speedy Zodiac inflatable boat for a tour among the massive icebergs of Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. This is part of an essential Icelandic experience, admiring the sun shining through the clouds on the blue-and-white ice floating peacefully from the lagoon.Boat tours began at the lagoon in 1985, after the opening sequence of the Bond film A View to a Kill was shot on location. Today, they are one of the most popular activities in Iceland, and three other major motion pictures have been shot on the lagoon to catch the unbelievable scenery.The glacier lagoon has been expanding since the 1970s due to the retreat of Vatnajökull glacier, pulling back from the coastline. It is now the deepest lake in Iceland, filling with ancient ice that cracks off of Breiðamerkurjökull glacial tongue, floating down rivers of meltwater to the glacier, where they float slowly out to sea, pulled by the tides.In good weather, gulls and seals often play on the ice. Photographers love to capture these animals, along with the huge chunks of ice as they float by or wash up on nearby Diamond Beach and lie sparkling on the black sand like diamonds on velvet.After making your way to Jökulsárlón to meet your group 30 minutes before tour departure, you’ll be provided with flotation suits and a life jacket. The small, low construction of the Zodiac boats allows you to explore a large area of the lagoon and get up close and personal with the ice (as close as safety allows).Take this opportunity to whizz across the magnificent glacier lagoon in a high-powered Zodiac!

Snaefellsnes National Park | Small Group Day Tour

Jump aboard this captivating tour to the Snæfellsnes peninsula. Sometimes called ‘Iceland in Miniature’ due to its vast diversity of landscapes, this is the perfect trip for those who seek to capture the true spirit and beauty of this incredible island. This is a small-group minibus tour for a maximum of 19 people, allowing for a comfortable and personal experience.You’ll be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavík in the morning, then head north-west. While the immediate surrounding scenery will be of rolling farmlands, it will diversify as soon as you reach the peninsula. You will cruise between the beautiful, rocky coast and a long range of mountains to your first destination: the Snæfellsjökull subglacial volcano.Often called ‘the crown jewel of the peninsula’, Snæfellsjökull is a magnificent, cone-shaped volcano adorned with ice throughout the year. Its beauty has inspired writers and artists for centuries, most notably Jules Verne; his novel ‘A Journey to the Centre of the Earth’ is set here.After admiring this incredible natural landmark, you will head to the charming farm of Ytri-Tunga to see its resident seal colony. These creatures, which spend hours hauling out on the shore, are a pleasure to observe, as they lazily sun themselves with little concern for those observing them. Animal-lovers would do well to keep an eye on the ocean around here too, as Snæfellsnes is one of the best places in the country to spot orcas from the shore.You will next see the charming villages of Arnarstapi and Hellnar, which are said to be steeped in magic and folklore. They are located in a lovely coastal area, which is dotted with beautiful rock formations and dramatic cliffs.The most notable of these geological formations are the two basalt columns called Lóndrangar, so tall and striking that many have compared them to a castle. Near these, you will have a chance to wander along a gorgeous black beach, Djúpalónssandur, the cliffs of which are home to many nesting seabirds.At Djúpalónssandur, you’ll find a curiosity on the beach: four large, smooth stones. They are ‘lifting stones’, once used to measure the strength of fishermen who worked and lived along the coasts here. Your guide will tell you what each was called, and you can see how well you would have risen to the challenge of moving them.Your final stop will be at the most photographed mountain in all of Iceland. Kirkjufell rises alone from a sea of green hills and wildflowers, surrounded by trickling rivers and little waterfalls; it is without a doubt one of the most scenic areas in the country. You’ll want to have your camera on hand when exploring this beautiful feature.The Snæfellnes peninsula is one of the country’s most beautiful spots. Don’t miss your opportunity to see 'Iceland in Miniature'. Check availability by choosing a date.

Whale Watching Tour from Reykjavik

Jump aboard this whale-watching excursion to see the incredible wealth of marine wildlife just off Reykjavík’s shores. This tour is a must for nature-lovers, and fits perfectly into a busy holiday; you leave straight from the capital city’s Old Harbour and return approximately three hours later.You will arrive at the harbour in good time for your departure, either by making your way there yourself or through a pick-up you can request during booking. If taking this trip during summer, you will have a choice between two boats, which you can select based on your sense of adventure and the nature of your group.The first vessel, and the only one operated year-round, is one of the largest whale-watching boats in Iceland. It has a fantastic educational and interactive focus on board, where you can learn more about the whales, as well as a café.The second vessel is one of our newest additions to the fleet, a fast-cruising catamaran. It promises to get you to the prime whale-watching location in just twenty minutes so that you can immerse yourself in the activity immediately. These express tours are only available during the summer months. Trips on this tour are approximately an hour shorter.On the first boat, you will spend roughly three hours out on the ocean looking for whales (approx. two hours on the second). As you travel out, your guide will point out the natural features surrounding the capital; in clear weather, you should be able to see both the Reykjanes Peninsula and the Snæfellsnes peninsula, as well as the ‘whale fjord’, otherwise called Hvalfjörður. Four species can be regularly seen on these tours: harbour porpoises, white-beaked dolphins, Minke Whales and Humpback Whales. It is not at all unheard of, however, to see orcas (or killer whales), pilot whales, Fin Whales, and even Basking Sharks. On top of these incredible animals, during summer you can expect to see a wealth of seabirds, most notably including the puffin. Your experienced guides can answer any questions you have as you hunt for and marvel over these majestic creatures. Each tour yields entirely different results. The animals’ behaviour change throughout the day; you might catch them breaching, socialising, feeding or just basking near the surface. If by chance, you are not lucky enough to see a marine mammal, you will have another opportunity to take this tour for free until you do.You will return to Reykjavík after three hours on the sea, hopefully after many exciting sightings and an up-close look at some of Iceland’s marvellous creatures. Because of the convenience and length of this tour, there will still be plenty of opportunities to make the most of the rest of your day, either on another tour or within the capital.Do not miss your chance to see the magnificent whales, dolphins and porpoises of Iceland. Set sail into Faxaflói bay for your opportunity. Check availability by choosing a date.

A full day could be spent exploring this area, but the boat tour is sure to be the highlight.Do not miss your opportunity to see Jökulsárlón from amongst the ancient ice. Book now to make sure you get your place on board. Check availability by choosing a date.

Thrihnukagigur Volcano Tour | Go Inside a Magma Chamber

Descend into the vast and vibrant magma chamber of a dormant volcano. Iceland is the only place in the world where a tour like this exists, so do not miss your opportunity.This trip will begin when you are picked up from Reykjavík and taken to the Blue Mountains Country Park, Bláfjöll, which sits just on the outskirts of the capital area. From here, it is just a 3.2 kilometre (two mile) hike to Þríhnúkagígur volcano, where you will descend into the volcano itself.Once you reach the crater, you will find an opening and an elevator crane. After being equipped with a helmet and harness, you will enter the lift's basket and begin your descent. Nowhere else in the world can you enter a magma chamber this way, which is part of what makes this tour so unique and worthwhile. This lift journey toward the centre of the earth covers 198 metres and takes about six minutes.During your slow descent, the beauty of the magma chamber will become instantly apparent. Intense heat and pressure from Þríhnúkagígur’s most recent eruption, over four thousand years ago, gave the rocks an incredible colouration and texture. Expect to see smooth walls and bizarre formations in yellows, blues, reds, violets and oranges, so vibrant that it’s difficult to believe that they could be natural.It is not just the beauty of the space that will awe you; it is also the sheer scale of it. To give some perspective on the size of the chamber, enormous monuments such as the Statue of Liberty and Reykjavík’s iconic Hallgrímskirkja church could easily fit inside it. The ground within the chamber is large enough to fit three basketball fields. Once your descent down the chamber is complete, your guide will let you out of the elevator, and you can explore for half an hour on the ground of the volcano. You will want your camera on hand, as everything, from the blades of light falling from overhead to the most minute details of the lava rock, is worthy of a photograph. Remember as you explore that it is only by a strange, unexpected geological process that this tour is even possible; when a volcano becomes dormant, the magma chamber usually cools and solidifies, yet for some reason in Þríhnúkagígur, it drained away, leaving behind this unimaginably beautiful space.After your exploration, you will return to the elevator for a gentle ascent, back into the bright, open world. Once you reach the surface, you will have a meal of Icelandic meat soup waiting for you, along with hot beverages and snacks, which you can enjoy before hiking back to the van.This experience is truly once-in-a-lifetime; descend into a dormant volcano to explore its stunning magma chamber. Do not let this opportunity pass you by.

Zodiac Boat Tour of Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

Hop on board a speedy Zodiac inflatable boat for a tour among the massive icebergs of Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. This is part of an essential Icelandic experience, admiring the sun shining through the clouds on the blue-and-white ice floating peacefully from the lagoon.Boat tours began at the lagoon in 1985, after the opening sequence of the Bond film A View to a Kill was shot on location. Today, they are one of the most popular activities in Iceland, and three other major motion pictures have been shot on the lagoon to catch the unbelievable scenery.The glacier lagoon has been expanding since the 1970s due to the retreat of Vatnajökull glacier, pulling back from the coastline. It is now the deepest lake in Iceland, filling with ancient ice that cracks off of Breiðamerkurjökull glacial tongue, floating down rivers of meltwater to the glacier, where they float slowly out to sea, pulled by the tides.In good weather, gulls and seals often play on the ice. Photographers love to capture these animals, along with the huge chunks of ice as they float by or wash up on nearby Diamond Beach and lie sparkling on the black sand like diamonds on velvet.After making your way to Jökulsárlón to meet your group 30 minutes before tour departure, you’ll be provided with flotation suits and a life jacket. The small, low construction of the Zodiac boats allows you to explore a large area of the lagoon and get up close and personal with the ice (as close as safety allows).Take this opportunity to whizz across the magnificent glacier lagoon in a high-powered Zodiac!

Snaefellsnes National Park | Small Group Day Tour

Jump aboard this captivating tour to the Snæfellsnes peninsula. Sometimes called ‘Iceland in Miniature’ due to its vast diversity of landscapes, this is the perfect trip for those who seek to capture the true spirit and beauty of this incredible island. This is a small-group minibus tour for a maximum of 19 people, allowing for a comfortable and personal experience.You’ll be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavík in the morning, then head north-west. While the immediate surrounding scenery will be of rolling farmlands, it will diversify as soon as you reach the peninsula. You will cruise between the beautiful, rocky coast and a long range of mountains to your first destination: the Snæfellsjökull subglacial volcano.Often called ‘the crown jewel of the peninsula’, Snæfellsjökull is a magnificent, cone-shaped volcano adorned with ice throughout the year. Its beauty has inspired writers and artists for centuries, most notably Jules Verne; his novel ‘A Journey to the Centre of the Earth’ is set here.After admiring this incredible natural landmark, you will head to the charming farm of Ytri-Tunga to see its resident seal colony. These creatures, which spend hours hauling out on the shore, are a pleasure to observe, as they lazily sun themselves with little concern for those observing them. Animal-lovers would do well to keep an eye on the ocean around here too, as Snæfellsnes is one of the best places in the country to spot orcas from the shore.You will next see the charming villages of Arnarstapi and Hellnar, which are said to be steeped in magic and folklore. They are located in a lovely coastal area, which is dotted with beautiful rock formations and dramatic cliffs.The most notable of these geological formations are the two basalt columns called Lóndrangar, so tall and striking that many have compared them to a castle. Near these, you will have a chance to wander along a gorgeous black beach, Djúpalónssandur, the cliffs of which are home to many nesting seabirds.At Djúpalónssandur, you’ll find a curiosity on the beach: four large, smooth stones. They are ‘lifting stones’, once used to measure the strength of fishermen who worked and lived along the coasts here. Your guide will tell you what each was called,
