English commentary

In March 2021, a brand-new volcano burst into life on the Reykjanes peninsula, between the airport and Reykjavik. Since then, thousands of Icelanders and visitors from all over the world have enjoyed the incredible sight of molten lava flowing through the valleys around Geldingadalir.

Seltun Geothermal Area

On our way to Geldingadalir, we’ll first visit Seltun. In this geothermally active area, you’ll see bubbling hotpots and mud pools boiling in an almost alien landscape. The hot springs, sulfur smells and bright colors will captivate you!

Just take the path leading to the small hill and enjoy one of the most colorful landscapes in Iceland! 

Geldingadalir (Fagradalsfjall) Valley

Let us take you on a tour of the eruption site to explore the freshest lava fields in the world. Our expert guides will explain how the eruption happened and how the volcano has changed the Icelandic landscape.

You’ll see the volcano’s crater and the enormous tongues of jet-black lava reaching across the horizon on this fascinating hiking expedition.

Gunnuhver Hot Springs

After exploring Geldingadalir, our next stop is the hot springs at Gunnuhver, another colorful steaming hot spring that sends clouds of vapor billowing high into the sky. There are deep mud pools here, and folklore tells of a witch who fell to her doom here, so watch where you walk!

Valahnukamol Cliffs and Lava Formations

Nearby, you’ll have a chance to walk along the towering sea cliffs of Valahnukamol, home to colonies of birds, where earlier volcanic lava flows met the Atlantic Ocean thousands of years ago.

The views are breathtaking in all directions, and you’ll see Reykjanesviti, the oldest lighthouse in Iceland, as well as Karlinn, an enormous 60-meter column of volcanic rock that stands just offshore.

Bridge Between Continents

Another tremendous force shaping Iceland is on view at The Bridge Between Continents.

Iceland stands on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, a globe-straddling geological fault line between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. These continents are slowly pulling apart at the same speed that your fingernails grow. Here you’ll be able to walk across a bridge from one continent to another in just a few steps! 

Blue Lagoon SPA (optional)

The last part of our tour is the most popular place of all in Iceland – the iconic Blue Lagoon. Here the milky sea waters contrast with black lava fields. If you want to join this part of the tour please select “Tour with Blue Lagoon admission” option during booking process. 

Here you can soak all your cares away in two beautiful hours at the Blue Lagoon SPA. It is a perfect way to reflect on an unforgettable day spent on the Reykjanes Peninsula. (READ MORE ABOUT BLUE LAGOON VISIT HERE)

The Reykjanes Volcano Tour give you the chance to see Iceland at its wildest, where the “Land of Fire and Ice” is constantly changed by volcanic eruptions, glaciers and fierce winds.
