Active Volcano in Geldingadalur

So you've made it to Iceland. And what a time to be here!

It feels like a lifetime since we were able to travel freely, but as on cue a long sleeping volcanic system has become active again; a herald of travel revived. Although the country of fire and ice is always amazing to visit, there is a certain added layer of excitement any time there is unusual geological activity to witness.

Iceland is a very active volcanic island — with eruptions occurring on average once every 2-3 years — which can make these volcanic events feel almost mundane to those who live here. It is however very rare that an eruption is as safe to view and easy to access as the one currently underway in Fagradalsfjall on the Reykjanes Peninsula, so be sure not to miss this incredible opportunity to see new land being born.

Our new tour Geldingadalur Volcano Hike and Blue Lagoon offers a fantastic balance for the senses in a day tour. The rugged and awe inspiring power of a brand new volcano and the luxurious feel of a silica mud mask on your face. A surefire way to forget every day strife!

The tour will start with a hike up to the active volcano. An eruption makes for extremely dynamic conditions; lava flow and weather are ever-changing and as a result the trail will change from day to day to best maintain safety and visibility. To ensure your trip is as pleasant as possible be prepared for all scenarios, by wearing wind- and waterproof clothing and strapping on good shoes with course soles. Hilltops and loose gravel surround the volcano, so be sure to put your best-booted foot forward to avoid any unnecessary accidents. We recommend packing ample amounts of water, tasty high energy snacks and a flask of a hot drink. Few things compare to a cup of hot chocolate with the view of an active volcano.

After the hike — which will take roughly 1.5 hours each way — you will be able to unwind in one of Iceland's most popular destinations: the Blue Lagoon. Located only a short 15-minute drive from the roots of Fagradalsfjall, the Blue Lagoon will warm up your body and soothe your mind. During your dip you can enjoy their complimentary silica mud mask and a drink of your choice, while surrounded by breathtaking lava formations.

So now is the time to seize this amazing opportunity. Book onto one of our regularly scheduled tours, or if your party would prefer a more private excursion, please be in touch with our team. Our website has a few examples of private tours, but we are happy to tailor to your individual needs to create that bucket list experience of your dreams!
