You will be able to enjoy your packed lunch on the hike while seeing lava flowing from the volcano. After, drive by the Reykjanes Peninsula, where the volcanos of the past have created land formations now covered by soft green lava moss. You'll then get to see and feel the Gunnuhver Hot Springs, where boiling waters and steam will reignite your senses. Only a 5-minute drive from there, you'll st...

    It was very good tour. Unfortunately the volcano had stopped erupting for 5 days so we did not see it erupt.

What people are saying about Reykjanes

We just had a successful trip while fresh lava was coming out of the volcano. An unforgettable experience, despite the unfavorable weather. After the adventure with the volcano, we had the opportunity to get to know the charms of the Reykjanes peninsula. Despite the fog and rain, we managed to see and enjoy the wonderful views of most attractions. We did not go to the lake due to the above-mentioned unfavorable weather conditions, which the guide did not inform us about (only after asking), which deserves a small minus. However, this is nothing in relation to all the attractions experienced :)

Very nice tour, lovely guide. Tommie and his driver mister T are well educated and made sure everyone was having a good time with putting safety first. When needed they acted seriously but for the most part they were joking and laughing around with all the people who joined. Saw more than just the volcano which was an extra plus. Definitely recommended for everyone who want to see the volcano, since it is not too pricey and you get more than just a volcano hike. Thanks for this simply lovely trip!

It was a great trip where we got time to the different locations and the highlight was of course the volcano which we reached before it went to sleep. The guide Thomas was funny with Icelandic humor and told funny story. The driver drove well and safely through the country. I recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see a little of everything in one day.

Tommy, our guide, was great! Very knowledgeable and cares for the safety of his group. We didnt have the best weather but it was still a great time and we would do it again. We didnt have great visibility seeing the volcano so he cut that short and let us add a stop or two on the trip. Very worth it!!

It was very good tour. Unfortunately the volcano had stopped erupting for 5 days so we did not see it erupt.
