  • Reykjavik: Guided Active Volcano Hike in Reykjanes Peninsula

    1. Reykjavik: Guided Active Volcano Hike in Reykjanes Peninsula

    Embark on a guided tour to the volcanic eruption in Geldingadalur. Enjoy the opportunity to witness rare geological activity and stunning lava flows, a truly rare occurrence. Meet in central Reykjavik and travel south to the Reykjanes Peninsula. Arrive at the start of the hiking route and follow your guide towards the volcano in Geldingadalur. The hike will take approximately 1.5-2 hours each way and the trail is conveniently marked. Gaze in awe at the raw power of mother nature as you see lava spewing from the volcano. Be amazed by glowing rivers of molten rock which will cool and harden to create entirely new landscapes.

    It was a nice trip to the volcano valley. I was dropped near my hotel at around 8:30pm. I was lucky enough as the volcano was active for the first time after a while.

    3. Reykjavik: Hiking Tour to Iceland's Newest Active Volcano

    Start with pickup from Reykjavik and then begin your 2-3 hour hike up to the viewing point of Geldingadalir, Iceland's newest erupting volcano. The volcano erupted close to Fagradalsfjall, in a valley named Geldingadalur on the evening of March 19, 2021. Observe a rare display of mother nature's ferocious power as you see the lava spew forth from the earth's core. Watch as the glowing lava flows from the cone, and creates entirely new landscapes.

    We found the guide very informative, friendly and caring. Several times I had to catch my Breath snd he came back down to assure I was fine and walk with me a bit. We did not see the lava glowing or flowing but nonetheless was an incredible experience! Will do it again in a couple of days time for sure. Thank you Bim and Arjun

Cristina, our tour guide was excellent. Even when we could not experience the eruption of the volcano, she tried to compensate it with other sightseeing along our way to Blue Lagoon. She is a knowledgeable person and she entertained us with stories while driving. She behaved as a mother taking care of us in every single thing we need. Also, after the tour finished we asked her for tips on our trip and she kindly took the time to fulfill every concern.The best tour guide!
