Full description
Get picked up in Reykjavík and set off for the experience of a lifetime, as you hike to a volcanic eruption at Geldingadalur. Head for the volcanic eruption at the Reykjanes Peninsula – where the first volcanic activity in the area for about 800 years is happening. The lava slowly coming up to the surface gives you a chance to experience this amazing natural wonder from a close distance. Our guide will hike up to the volcano with you and tell you all you need to know about the new Fagradalsfjall volcano. The hike is about 1.5-2 hours and has a moderate level of difficulty. Once you arrive, you'll get the chance to see the hot flowing lava of the volcanic eruption. We'll hike around the Fagradalsfjall volcano until we find the best location to sit and enjoy the view, before heading back down.

      The pickup was a bit bumpy at first, but we finally found each other. All in all it was a great tour, with unforgettable impressions. And thanks to our friendly guide, we were directed straight to the right path, so that we had a great view of the eruption ... the next one, fog hung in front of it and everything faded. Right time - right place :) and with "Tröll" again and again.

      Very strenuous exercise if you are not used to hiking for two hours straight just to get to the top. Highly highly highly recommend getting walking sticks. Thora was sooo nice to let me borrow her sticks but again if you got your own, you might be able to keep up. Thora was an excellent tour guide and good at explaining things. Troll is a great company over all
