Hike to the 2021 and 2022 Fagradalsfjall Volcano eruption site with our expert guide where new lava flows into old and geothermal activity runs the scene!
Our expert guides will take you to the Fagradalsfjall area, which is also close to the 2023 Litli Hrútur eruption – but always with your safety as the priority.

What better way to end the day than relaxing in the Blue Lagoon by getting the whole geothermal experience in one day.

A tour to the recent volcanic eruption in Geldingadalir valley, with views on the current eruptions and relaxation in the warm healing waters in the Blue Lagoon is a once-in-a-lifetime experience only Iceland can provide!

IMPORTANT NOTE: please notice that this moderate hike will take you to the site of the previous 2021 and 2022 volcanic eruptions. You will see the 2023 eruption too, but from a distance.
If you are instead interested in a CHALLENGING hike to the newest eruption site, including Blue Lagoon, this is the tour for you.
