All about the trip
No matter how much reading or preparation you’ve done for your dream destination, there’s nothing that really substitutes a well-organized guided tour. But we know traveling in large groups of people is not everybody´s cup of tea. For those who prefer more time with their guide, a little more flexibility in the schedule and to enjoy the experience in their own company, our private tours are the perfect fit.
This first eruption in the Reykjanes Peninsula in about 800 years provides a unique opportunity to study the geologic mysteries of the region and is open for all to enjoy! After being shaken by months of increasingly disruptive earthquakes, including thousands in the past weeks, Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula is finally experiencing the volcanic eruption that many geologists suspected was on its way.
We offer a guided tour to the volcanic eruption in Geldingadalur. The driver and guide will take the group to the start of the hiking route towards the volcano in Geldingadalur, where you and the guide will hike towards the volcano. The hike will take approximately 1.5-2 hours each way and the trail is conveniently marked.
Don´t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime experience and witness the raw power of lava pouring out of the surface of the earth.
Hikers will have approximately 2 hours to view the volcanic eruption.Watch on Youtube

Eruption sites can change, and new eruption cracks may open on short notice. Gas pollution is strongest close to the area and can lurk in valleys and dells where it is particularly dangerous.
We will follow the recommendations of the Civil protection service and cancel the tour if circumstances at the eruption site are unsafe. Please be aware of the public guidance for hikers visiting the site.
