SAFETY (GAS MASK-GAS METER)
The Volcano Fagradalsfjall in Geldingadalur is 20 miles from Keflavik International Airport and is the biggest attraction in the country.
Volcanic activity is changing every day, enlarging the site on a significant daily basis, making this hike a unique experience.
The lava is taking over the whole valley, and slowly shaping the landscape, being a great opportunity for geology lovers, as we can witness how our planet builds itself through the volcanoes.
The starting point to meet our local guides is in Grindavík town, 10 min drive from the hiking trail. If you don't have transportation, it is possible to book this option with us in our booking form.
Our guide will drive with you to the parking place near the trail, get ready and pack our included snacks, energy drinks, water, and walking sticks to start this adventure.
“FAMILY FRIENDLY AND VERY PERSONAL”
“SAFE AND WELL ORGANISED”
Your tour guide will offer you an overview of the area and other important geological information about the Reykjanes Peninsula, where this volcanic eruption is located.
Our guides will choose the type of hike based on the weather conditions, lava flow activity, and your fitness level.
The easy hike of up to 6.2 miles (10 km) will focus on the lava valley exploration. Based on your fitness level, you will be able to hike to the crater viewpoint (weather permitted). The elevation is about 343m (1125 ft).
The moderate hike of up to 4.6 miles (7.5 km). This is a short but slightly more challenging hike and requires a better fitness level. The mountain path can be slippery, and walking poles are necessary. This hike covers the viewpoint around the volcano, which gains an elevation of 343m (1125 ft).
The longer and more challenging hike of up to 7.4 miles (12 km) combines viewpoint and lava valley exploration. This option is for more active hikers with a good fitness level.

“PROFESSIONAL AND EXPERT GUIDES”
In general, the tour is about 3 to 5 hours, depending on the path chosen. Depending on the lava flow and weather, the hike can take 30 to 90 minutes each way. When we have a very active eruption filling the lower valley, it is possible to access the lava in about 20 minutes, but we always need to hike up the hill for the crater view.
You can book the morning, afternoon, evening-night tours based on your interest, fitness level, and budget.
With us, you gain not just a fantastic tour, with great guides, but safety, organization, and attention to small details.
The visit to Fagradalsfjall Volcano in Iceland will be the highlight of your trip.
