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.


You will witness an epic battle between the elements as the intense heat of the red-hot flowing lava starts 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.
We also offer this tour as a combo with Katla! Check out our combo tour here.
