About the Tour

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.


Lava Show originally started in Vík as a small family business, however throughout the years the show became so popular all over Iceland, that we recently decided to open our doors in Reykjavík too! We opened the doors in Reykjavík at the end of 2022.

The Reykjavík Lava show offers two group experiences - the upper floor balcony has 20 seats with an above view of the show as well as access to a private bar.

The general showroom holds 88 seats for the ground-lever viewers, where you will be just a meter away from the lava.


​The ICELANDIC LAVA SHOW - REYKJAVÍK is located in Fiskislóð 73, 101 Reykjavík.
