Lava Show Reykjavík

The only live LAVA SHOW in the world!

Are you fascinated with lava, volcanoes, and geology? Would you like to see red-hot lava up close in a safe environment? Are you embarking on a journey through Iceland, the land of ice and fire? If the answer is YES, you need to experience Lava Show Reykjavik. It is the only live lava show in the world and has become one of the must-see experiences in Iceland! Just look at the incredible reviews!

An impressive and unique experience

To recreate a miniature volcano eruption, they superheat natural lava from the 1918 Katla eruption and, once molten, pour it into a showroom full of people. It is an incredible, unforgettable experience. In an instant, the showroom heats up to a toasty temperature. And as the audience sits safely in their seats yet only a few feet away from the flowing lava, it is mesmerizing to see, hear, smell and feel the incredible heat that radiates from it. It truly is a sensational experience!

The show begins with a short welcome by the host and then a short educational video about Icelandic volcanism and the volcanoes. 

Once the lava starts flowing into the showroom, the host begins PLAYING WITH THE LAVA! It is an entertaining, unique, and educational experience, completely different from everything else you’ve ever experienced. And after the show, you truly see the rest of Iceland with different eyes and a newfound appreciation for nature. 

It is a must-see experience!
