Same as starting point
A volcano's eruption is not something you experience every day of your life or even on holiday. But you’re heading for Iceland, and it’s a country that has had plenty of volcanic activity in the past. So why not take the time then to study and enjoy the geologic mysteries of this region.
These eruptions have been shaking the very foundations of Iceland in recent times, especially the Reykjanes Peninsula. Activity that has long been predicted. So get those hiking shoes ready as you walk to the Volcano, and then relax and enjoy time at the Blue Lagoon. Ah, bliss.
Your guided tour takes you to the volcanic eruption in Geldingadalur, also known as Fagradalsfjall Volcano. You’ll be taken to the starting point by bus, and then it’s on foot the rest of the way.
It’ll take about 2hrs to get there, then, of course, 2hrs back. So be prepared as the lava, which is free-flowing, can change the route! But it’s a small sacrifice to witness the raw power of Mother Nature and the lava pouring out of the earth. It's a place you'll want to capture by camera or phone.
Then, it’s onto the Blue Lagoon to relax in the thermal waters, a chance to rest those aching limbs after such an enlightening experience. With a free silica mud mask and a drink from the in-water bar, well, you can raise your glass to an extraordinary day.
