Volcano Tours - Frequently Asked Questions

A new eruption started on the 3rd of August 2022 in Mt. Fagradalsfjall after being officially declared over on December 18th, 2021.

It is impossible to say for sure how long the eruption will stay active. However, according to experts from the Department of Civil Protection, the characteristics of this eruption are very similar to the one last year, which lasted for six months from March-September. It is therefore likely the lava will continue to flow for at least few months.

Fortunately, it seem like the eruption will cause no threat to anyone's travel plans to, or around, Iceland. The Government of Iceland has issued an announcement regarding the volcanic eruption, which states that risk to populated areas and infrastructure is considered low and that there will be no disruptions to international aviation.

So if you have booked a flight or a tour, you can continue with your travel plans.

According to the Environmental Agency of Iceland, walking on the lava is forbidden and can be very dangerous. The top layer can easily break when stepped on, causing hazards to people.

It's important to dress according to weather and wear good hiking shoes. We recommend packing a lunch, as the hike to the eruption site is challenging and can take up to 2 hours.

Our partners at Iceland Camping Equipment can provide you with the perfect gear for a small fee, please rent your gear at least 24 hours prior to departure.

There are toilets in the parking lot area where the bus will stop.
