Prepare for an experience that's not just a tour but a journey into the heart of Iceland's fiery nature.

ℹ️ Starting time

Pick up at 10:00 from Reykjavik City / Bus Stop #6 - Safnahúsið The Culture House.

  • ℹ️ Drive to Grindavik, "The Hot Zone," a restricted town due to ongoing volcanic activity and the closest to the new eruptions in Iceland. We'll have lunch in the town at a local establishment and, afterward, drive through the designated safety zones to witness the fissures, destruction, and raw power of nature resulting from recent eruptions. Grindavik was evacuated in November 2023 due to persistent volcanic threats, necessitating the relocation of its residents.

  • ℹ️ Following our visit to Grindavik, our journey leads us to the Fagradalsfjall Volcano site. Here, we will explore the Nátthagi area, where the solidified lava from the 2021 eruption has sculpted a vast lava valley. The area around Náttagi showcases the petrified lava that created an extensive and dramatic lava valley, highlighting the powerful and transformative force of volcanic activity in Iceland. This makes it a significant point of interest for visitors wanting to witness the aftermath of a recent volcanic eruption and the natural beauty of Iceland's rugged terrain.

  • ℹ️ On our return trip, we'll make a final stop at the Seltún geothermal area within the Reykjanes Geopark to explore this extraordinary geological site.
