Frequently Asked Questions

About Volcano Tours in Iceland

Iceland is split by the Mid-Atlantic Rift, which causes the country to be extremely geothermally and volcanically active. On Volcano Tours, you visit and explore craters, magma chambers and peaks created by Iceland's volcanic energy.

1. Are there any active volcanoes in Iceland?

Iceland has many active volcanoes, but none are currently erupting.

2. Where is the volcano that erupted in 2010?

Eyjafjallajokull is on Iceland’s South Coast, west of Myrdalsjokull Glacier.

3. Do the volcanoes pose a risk?

There are no active volcanoes threatening any major settlement, and volcano tours are cancelled or amended if there is any reason to believe an eruption is imminent.

4. Why is Iceland home to so many active volcanoes?

Iceland is divided by the Mid-Atlantic Rift. As the North American and Eurasian plates pull apart, they form a weakness in the crust that results in Iceland’s volcanism.

5. What types of volcanoes are there in Iceland?

There are Stratovolcanoes (such as Eyjafjallajokull), Central Volcanoes (such as Katla) and fissure swarms and crater rose (such as along the Reykjanes Peninsula).

6. Can you go inside a volcano in Iceland?

It is possible to descend into the magma chamber of Thrihnukagigar volcano.

7. What is Iceland’s most active volcano?

Grimsvotn, underneath Vatnajokull glacier in the Highlands, is the most active volcano, connected to the Laki system which brought havoc to Europe in the 18th Century. Hekla and Katla are also very active, having had over twenty eruptions each since settlement.

8. What is Iceland’s most powerful volcano?

Katla, which sits beneath the glacier Myrdalsjokull.

9. Which part of Iceland is most volcanically active?

Along the Mid-Atlantic rift, you can find the most active areas. This includes the South Coast around Katla, the Highlands beneath Vatnajokull, the Reykjanes Peninsula and the Lake Myvatn Area. The Westman Islands are also very active.

10. Why aren’t there any volcanoes in the Westfjords?

The Westfjords are the oldest part of Iceland, with some mountains dating back 16 million years. Over this time, the landmass has been pushed away from the Mid-Atlantic Rift, and out of the volcanic hot-spot zone.
