Active Volcano & Blue Lagoon Admission Tour

A new fissure has opened at Fagradalsfjall at around 14.00 on August 3rd, 2022!

Hike to the Fagradalsfjall volcano to see the eruption with flowing lava, then rest at the Blue Lagoon geothermal SPA. 

A volcano eruption site and naturally warm healing waters are something that you don’t see every day. In this tour, volcanic and geothermal activity run the scene to make this a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The beautiful backcountry of Reykjanes Peninsula offers variated scenery, natural phenomena, and places of stunning beauty and is only a short distance from Reykjavík!
