Come see with your own eyes, the site of the 2021, 2022 and 2023 volcanic eruption on the Reykjanes Peninsula. Widespread lava fields, colossal craters and an abundance of colours!

Take off from Reykjavik and fly to the Litli Hrútur 2023 eruption site and witness with your own eyes the newest eruption in Iceland. Seeing this natural wonder with your own eyes is truly remarkable and one of the things you must do if you are in Iceland.

The Litli Hrútur eruption, that started on July 10th 2023 and continued for a whole month, is the third eruption in three years in the area.

The 2021 eruption started on March 19th and lasted for six months, creating a large lava plateau and numerous craters. The eruption was the first eruption on the Reykjanes Peninsula since the 14th century and follows three weeks of over 50.000 earthquakes in the area.

On August 3rd, 2022, a new eruption started and a new crater started forming and new lava got added to the already extensive lava plateau.

On this flight, you get to explore the area from the air, get a bird’s eye view of the area, see all the beautiful colors, and massive size of the craters, and enjoy the surrounding scenery.
