Fagradalsfjall Volcano

In 2021, Icelands’ Fagradalsfjall began erupting for the first time in 7000 years, and now is the time experience this natural wonder. This geothermal wonderland starts with a scenic drive through fairytale-like lava fields covered in a thick layer of green moss past the majestic Lake Kleifarvatn, stopping by the colorful Seltún Hot Springs Geothermal area at Krýsuvík before we hike into Geldingadalur Valley to see the volcanic activity all around.

You will be able to enjoy your packed dinner while watching the lava flowing from the volcano. On the way back from this unique experience of seeing moss and land in the making, we will drive through the Reykjanes Peninsula where previous volcanos have formed now rock-hard formations and soft lava moss.

An active volcano and naturally warm healing waters is something that you don’t see every day and in this tour volcanic- and geothermal activity run the scene to make this a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The beautiful backcountry of Reykjanes Peninsula offers variated scenery, natural phenomena, and places of stunning beauty and is only a short distance from Reykjavík! Being so close to the nature-surrounded capital Reykjavík, a tour to the active volcano at Fagradalsfjall and gives you the great opportunity to visit a truly unique setting.

The Peninsula of Reykjanes is a true volcanic wonder hosting unique natural phenomenon: open rift zones, mossy covered lava fields, geothermal fields, mountain lakes, fishing villages, and breathtaking coastal features. Reykjanes lies on one of the world’s major plate boundaries, the Mid Atlantic Ridge in between the tectonic plates of Eurasia and North America, drifting apart from one another resulting in open fissures and volcanic activity.

  • Absolutely fantastic tour, couldn’t get up to the summit because of extremely high winds. Our guide Tommy was very knowledgeable of the volcano and took us to a freshly solidified lava field where we could see the cracks in the rock still smoking and difference in the rocks, as a few weeks before that lava flow wasn’t there. Amazing to see. Highly recommended
