Join us on this exciting trip to the newest volcanoes in Iceland! On this amazing afternoon tour we will explore our beloved Fagradasfjall Volcano and Meradalir Volcano!

Tour Description

We will meet at your chosen hotel or bus stop in Reykjavik.

These afternoon and evening departures from Reykjavík Iceland take you directly to the Meradalir volcano area in Geldingalur valley to witness the miracle of land forming before our very eyes. Meradalir erupted for much of August 2022 but has just recently gone quiet once more. Even without flowing lava, this area is simply fascinating.

We wish you a beautiful evening, filled with tons of unforgettable memories!

Seltún hot-springs

* Depending on the duration of the volcano hike, we may skip this stop.

Our first stop is at Seltún, where you can view the effect that geothermal waters can have on an environment. Here one can walk along wooden paths winding between boiling and hissing mud pools and streams of natural hot water flowing over the colorful ground and rock. The air is thick with the smell of sulphur emitted from these hot-springs. Beneath the surface, the hot water dissolves minerals such as sulphur from the rocks and ground soil, leading to this distinctive stinch. Two viewing platforms overhang the area allowing you a 360 degree point of view over the area.

Meradalir Volcanic Eruption

We join the hiking trail around the lava field remnants of the 2021 Fagradalsfjall eruption. The hike can take up to 1.5-2 hours each way and 6-12 km in total depending on conditions. The eruption petered out after just 2.5 weeks, compared to the 6 month long eruption at Fagradalsfjall in 2021. 

The eruption transformed the Meradalir valley. The surrounding hills are high so it is perfectly safe to visit the area. Indeed the hills provide the perfect viewpoint and picnic area.
