Tour description

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

Join us on this magnificent Volcano Guided Hike Tour to Iceland’s recently active volcano at Fagradalsfjall. It is a unique experience to see the crater and the new lava covering 4.85 square kilometers. You can expect a 2-2.5-hour hike through the rugged and raw terrain on the Reykjanes Peninsula up to Gelgingadalir or Langihryggur. 3 to 4-mile moderate hike on rough terrain and slippery hillsides, which are sometimes steep. An elevation gain of 1000ft (330m).
