Tour Description

The Icelandic Lava Show demonstrates how the volcanic eruptions of the famous Eyjafjallajökull and Katla volcanoes work by simulating its own small volcanic eruption.

The molten lava (1100°C / 2000°F) is poured over ice in the exhibition space.


You will witness an epic battle between the elements, as the intense heat of the red-hot flowing lava will start sizzling.

It’s a unique opportunity to do that in a safe environment.


​The ICELANDIC LAVA SHOW is located at the Soup Company in the heart of Vík, the same place from where our Katla Volcano Ice Cave Tour starts.
