Tour description

Have you ever wondered how it feels to be near a volcano, gazing down on the pouring hot lava? Well now is your chance!

We will pick you up at your hotel in Reykjavik and drive you straight to the Reykjanes Peninsula. On our way, we can already see huge lava fields, created during the last eruptions that occured more than 900 years ago. We bring you as close as possible to the start of the hiking trail and then you and your guide head on an adventurous journey. 

The hike is around 3km one way and a moderate level of fitness is required as we have to walk up one steep hill before we reach the plateau. Once we get there, we can already spot the volcano in the distance. We will spend some time in the area to take stunning photos and videos. 

After our hike back we will go to the Blue Lagoon. The beneficial powers of geothermal seawater were first discovered in the early 1980s when local residents began to bathe in the serene blue lagoon that had formed in the lava field beside the Svartsengi Geothermal Resource Park. Today, many decades after the first inquisitive souls began venturing into the water, the Blue Lagoon has blossomed from a humble curiosity into a wellspring of wonder. You can choose between three different packages during the checkout process.
