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. Check availability by choosing a date.

Hop on this tour for a unique journey across the diverse landscape of Iceland. This tour is for those who love to explore Iceland’s volcanic marvels and any animal lovers who visits our shores! You'll be picked up at your accommodation in Akureyri and whizz across the land all the way to Lake Mývatn, stopping at various unforgettable points throughout the tour. Goðafoss is your first stop, a waterfall named “The Gods’ Waterfall.” It is said that in the year 1000 AD, law-speaker Þorgeir declared Christianity to be the law of the land because he believed that religious differences between the Christians and the pagans could tear the country apart. Thus united, Þorgeir returned home after the parliament meeting. On the way, he stopped at this fall and threw figurines of the Norse gods into the water, casting off his own pagan beliefs in the process.

You'll continue on to Dimmuborgir, the “dark cities,” where lava formations and pillars are plenty and tell mysterious tales and sagas. Then, you go to the underground hot springs of Grjótagjá and the Námafjall geothermal area, where you'll see various sulphur pits, steaming fumaroles, and boiling mud pools.

Askja Caldera & Viti Crater | East Highlands Day Tour

Walk in the footsteps of the first men on the moon on the Askja Lunar tour. Leaving from Lake Mývatn, this incredible trip takes you into the desolate, rugged Highlands of Iceland, and incorporates visits to volcanoes, craters, a stunning nature reserve and a geothermally heated lake that you are invited to bask in. You will be picked up at Reykjahlíð in the Lake Mývatn area in the morning, in a four-wheel-drive bus. Once your group is aboard, you will begin your journey into the Highlands. This wilderness is unimaginably beautiful, and a sight very few are lucky enough to be able to see. It is advised to keep your camera in hand for the duration of your drive, for there will be many striking features en route that you will want to photograph. On your way to Askja, you will stop in the stretches of lava and black sands where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin prepared for the 1960s moon landing. The appeal of this region to NASA is instantly apparent; its bleak desolation gives you the feeling of walking on a different planet. The area, however, is not entirely lifeless; you will stop at the nature reserve Herðubreiðarlindir, which is an oasis of plants and birdlife maintained by freshwater springs through the old lava. This beautiful reserve has the incredible backdrop of the subglacial volcano Herðubreið, nicknamed the Queen of Iceland’s Mountains. At 1682 metres (5354 ft) tall, it is Iceland’s fifth tallest peak; covered in the glistening ice of Vatnajökull glacier. Following your time at the nature reserve, you will head over to the massive Askja Volcano. When it erupted in 1875, the amount of poisonous ash released into the air prompted a large exodus from the country. The force of this eruption blasted a new caldera inside the old one, and after the cooling period, this new basin filled with water. Now, you can see a stunning lake within the crater, 11 km squared and 220 metres (722 ft) deep.  You will walk right up to its rim, then to another nearby crater lake, called Víti, which translates to ‘hell’, but bathing in its milky blue geothermally heated waters is heaven. Once you are fully recharged from your refreshing bath, you will head back to the bus to return to Lake Mývatn, aiming to be back ten or eleven hours after departing. The incredible, desolate beauty of this tour promises to stay with you for life; you can return knowing you have seen landscapes and features most visitors to Iceland never have the chance to witness. So don’t hesitate any longer; immerse yourself in the beauty of the Highlands, and visit the mighty Askja Volcano. Check availability by choosing a date.

Feel the Heat | Real Lava Pouring in Vik

Get close to real lava and try something exhilarating and different on this unique lava and volcano activity show. Iceland is one of the most active volcanic landscape on the planet with over 30 active volcano systems and a volcano eruption every 3-5 years on average. Despite this, most of the eruptions are not accessible, either because of toxic gasses or because they take place below the massive ice caps of the Icelandic glaciers. But now, for the first time in history, it is possible to get the extraordinary close-up experience of a volcanic eruption, without any risk involved. By pouring molten lava, over 1100 degrees Celsius (2000°F), into a showroom full of people, Icelandic Lava show has managed to recreate a miniature volcano eruption. It is the first show of its kind in the world and the only place on Earth where you can safely experience real lava in action in such close proximity. The show is entertaining from beginning to end. After the host has greeted you, the show starts with a short educational video that explains Icelandic volcanism. It tells a truly dramatic story of eruptions in Iceland, and about the 1918 Katla eruption, but Katla is considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world. Then it is time for the highlight of the show. The lights dim, and the rumbling sounds roar as the red-hot lava starts flowing into the showroom. The sensory onslaught is very powerful. Seeing the vibrant colours of the flowing lava, hearing it sizzling, smelling the melting minerals and feeling the intense heat is an indescribable sensation. It is simply something that you must experience yourself to fully understand. Icelandic Lava Show is located in Vík on the South Coast of Iceland, surrounded by volcanoes, glaciers and black sand beaches. It is situated in the heart of Vík in a newly renovated house that is both modern and cosy and has been specifically adjusted for the lava show. There is also an excellent restaurant here that offers a variety of delicious soups, salads and paninis, with both vegan and vegetarian options available. And of course, there is free Wi-Fi. Do not miss this unforgettable and unique show, and grab the opportunity to see a volcanic eruption up close. Check availability by choosing a date.

Caves & Volcanoes | Small Group Jeep Tour to Reykjanes Peninsula

Join us on this small group adventure tour, where your guide takes you to the lava fields of Reykjanes. This site is the heart of a nearby volcanic system Krýsuvík that last erupted some 850 years ago. After just a short drive from Reykjavík, we turn off the beaten track and head into the lava field south of the city. The view is stunning, and the lava field with its strange formations bring to life all the troll stories that were meant to keep people away, and it doesn't take more than a few steps in almost impassable lava to understand the bad reputation of this area that the past generations called the Burntlands. Travelling over the mountain pass at Háuhnjúkar, we enter the volcanic area to take in the raw beauty of lake Kleifarvatn. The black sand beaches and the unique rock formations that make up the hills and the mountains are made of ash, and volcanic debris and the lake itself was formed by a melting glacier. Calm on the surface, but the lake sits right on top of the fault lines on the tectonic divide and actually hides some beautiful hot springs underneath the surface which make it a popular snorkelling site in summer.   The Krýsuvík volcanic system looks nothing like the classic cone shape mountain. The fault lines cross all the way to the capital area, so it is under constant watch and one of the most researched geothermal areas in Iceland. We'll hike the path between bubbling fumaroles at the geothermal site, Seltún, that sits on top of the massive magma chamber and you can literally see, hear and smell the earth boiling. After that, we head to the lava fields again and on to Leiðarendi cave that was formed some 2000 years ago. The cave is completely natural with no man-made pathways or artificial lights, and it is one of few accessible caves that has not been “developed” for mass tourism. This is the best way to experience the colourful inside of the lava field, an expert guide and a small group of like-minded adventurers. Fully equipped with helmets and headlamps, we enter the cave and work our way through the rockfalls and low ceilings, even on all four at times. Not to worry though, as there are no tight spaces you have to squeeze through and your guide will always adjust the route to fit each group best.  After our caving adventure, we will head back into the city for the afternoon. Don't miss this fantastic exploration of the hidden gem that is Reykjanes peninsula. Check availability by choosing a date.

Private Jeep Tour | Summer Thorsmork & Eyjafjallajokull Volcano Adventure

Go on an adventure with us and get closer to the Icelandic Highlands. On this private day tour by comfortable 4x4 jeep, you will visit beautiful waterfalls and green canyons, cross rivers, enjoy amazing views of the Eyjafjallajökull glacier-volcano, admire glaciers covered in volcanic ash from past eruptions, and much more. In the morning you will be picked up from your hotel. You will go along the famous Icelandic Ring Road, from where you will have great views of the Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull volcanoes. Hekla was known in the Middle Ages as the “gateway to hell,” and it's still one of the most active volcanoes in Iceland. Our first stop will be the breathtaking Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Make sure to bring your raincoat with you, as you will have the chance to take a path behind the curtain of water, and you are most certain to get a nice shower in the process. We will then drive to Þórsmörk, the 'valley of Thor,' surrounded by mountains and glaciers. There you will see the Gígjökull glacier tongue. You will also have time to hike close to the edge of Eyjafjallajökull, the glacier-volcano that erupted in 2010, stopping air traffic all over Europe and making Iceland world famous in the process. Our next stop will be Stakkholtsgjá canyon, with its astounding 100-meter-high cliffs towering above everything. Stakkholtsgjá canyon was one of the filming locations of Game of Thrones—if you're a fan, you can't miss this. We will then be crossing rivers in our jeep to drive further into the Þórsmörk valley. We will stop at a campsite (with toilet facilities and a small cafe) from where you will have the chance to go on short hikes, enjoying spectacular views of glacial river beds as well as the surrounding mountains and glaciers. Weather and time permitting, we will make some extra stops, such as the beautiful Nauthúsagil ravine that ends with a waterfall, and Gluggafoss, the window waterfall. Book now if you want to explore the spectacular Thórsmörk valley in style and comfort. 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. Check availability by choosing a date.

Goðafoss is your first stop, a waterfall named “The Gods’ Waterfall.” It is said that in the year 1000 AD, law-speaker Þorgeir declared Christianity to be the law of the land because he believed that religious differences between the Christians and the pagans could tear the country apart.

Eyjafjallajokull Super Jeep Excursion

Get up close and personal with Iceland’s most infamous glacier volcano Eyjafjallajökull, on this super jeep excursion on the South Coast. If you want to experience the views from atop the site of the 2010 eruption that made headlines around the world, this adventure-packed tour is a unique opportunity to do so. Your journey begins at the campsite Hamragarður next to the famous waterfall Seljalandsfoss. There, you will meet your guide and board your vehicle, a specially modified super jeep capable of treading Iceland’s treacherous Highland roads, and begin ascending up the snowy slopes of the one and only Eyjafjallajökull. Eyjafjallajökull is a powerful volcano of which the caldera is covered by a glistening ice cap. The summit of this natural marvel reaches 1,666 metres (5,465 feet), and it is known to have frequently erupted since the last glacial period. The latest eruption took place in 2010, causing enormous disruption to air travel across western and northern Europe over a period of six days. While some weren’t happy with their travel plans being disrupted due to the dark clouds of ash that took over the skies, others flocked to the land of ice and fire to awe at the visibility of the earth’s powers. Now, you too can witness this site personally and conquer the glacier with ease from the comforts of your super jeep.
