Reykjavík: Volcano Eruption Site Hike and Geothermal Tour

1. Reykjavík: Volcano Eruption Site Hike and Geothermal Tour

Iceland's Geldingadalur Valley now had multiple craters erupting for the first time in 7000 years, the Fagradalsfjall Volcano crater being the most active. Start with a pickup in Reykjavík before heading on a scenic drive surrounded by breathtaking views. The first stop is Lake Kleifarvatn, where you will enjoy scenes of the black beach and surrounding mountains. Next, get your hiking gear on and hike towards Geldingadalur Valley to see live volcanic activity coming from Fagradalsfjall Volcano. 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 stop by the photogenic Reykjanes Lighthouse and the Valhnúkamöl Boulder Ridge to admire the cliffs and sea stacks formed by the Atlantic Ocean. The last stop before heading back to Reykjavík is the Bridge Between Continents where earthquakes have made a rift between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. It's a fun photo opportunity and a chance to walk between the continents.

What people are saying about Reykjanesbær

This is the first time I’ve ever written a review, but I felt like I had to because this tour was so great! We stopped at a few places before the hike to see some stunning coastline and geothermal activity. We then got to the volcano where we saw the incredible lava field with gases still coming off of it. Our guide Simon was absolutely incredible at explaining everything, and very knowledgeable. It added a lot to the experience to know what we were looking at. He was also incredibly funny. We then embarked on the most epic tour of my life up the side of the mountain/ volcano. The hike was challenging and steep, but ultimately incredible. The views were out of this world the higher you got. We ended up on the crest of the mountain overlooking the entire volcano and lava field and all the other incredible landscape surrounding it. We then followed this path along the crest down to our starting point. The hike was a few hours, and incredible beginning to end. Could not recommend more!

The guide Thommi was brilliant, took us to extra places not on the tour and really looked after us, got to see the real Iceland with all its natural power and beauty. Brilliant tour, at the end of the tour Thommi gave us each a piece of volcanic rock. Thommi your a blues playing Icelandic legend!

Beautiful experience. Fortunately we were few on the tour so the guide, Thomas, was very present and explained a lot of interesting things.

The guide was great. He said a lot of interesting things about Iceland and was super entertaining on the way to the individual hotspots.

Fantastic tour and Awesome guide hike up mountain so tried but the view on the top it worth
