TOUR DESCRIPTION 

 "PRIVATE VOLCANO TOUR EXPERIENCE FROM REYKJAVIK"

"Fagradalsfjall Volcano Hike" is our streamlined tour from Reykjavik and is available with transfers included or can be met on location. This tour is a crowd-pleaser, favored by all, from spry seniors with average fitness to adventurous families looking to immerse their children in nature's grandeur.

The one-way hike can range from 45 minutes to slightly over an hour. This variation is based on individual pacing and stamina. The journey encompasses an elevation gain of roughly 300 meters (about 984 ft) over 8 km (approximately 4.9 miles). During our exploration of the volcanic region, we'll make occasional stops to capture photographs and appreciate the stunning scenery.

We equip you with walking poles for stability and crampons for winter conditions. 

 

Visiting with a local guide is the best way to ensure an informative and safe volcano experience. Be prepared to witness the remnants of the 2021 Fagradalsfjall eruption - warmth that still clings to the earth, billowing smoke, and visible fumaroles around the crater.
