Geldingadalir Volcanic Eruption Site

Geldingadalir Volcanic Eruption Site

The Geldingadalir Volcanic Eruption gives us a remarkable opportunity to witness how our planet is ever-changing. Here Mother Nature has conveniently located this eruption only a 45-minute drive from Reykjavik city and an even shorter distance from KEF international airport.

Luckily the eruption itself is small in scale, meaning you will be able to experience a volcanic eruption in a much closer and safer way than is usually the case with volcanic eruptions.

Included in our services for this tour:

  • We pick you up at your hotel or airport in our luxurious SUV.

  • Your safety is our prime concern:

    • The hike will be over rough terrain and when we reach the eruption site we need to stay safe from poisonous gasses and other dangers. Therefore, before the hike starts, we have a short safety briefing to ensure an accident free hike and a safe stay at the eruption site.

    • Our guide will walk with you all the way and stay with you at the site at all times to keep you safe.

  • We provide packed lunches and drinks so no one gets hungry or dehydrated during the tour.

  • To make your hike less strenuous and safer, we provide walking poles for the whole group.

  • We drop you off at your hotel or airport.

  • Optional: A visit to a local geothermal pool where we can relax after the hike.


Please note:

  • The eruption is a natural phenomenon, it can change without notice at any time; the eruption can either stop or even become too dangerous to visit. In addition, the authorities can without notice close the area off altogether due to weather conditions and public safety. If we are unable to reach the site we will offer you a choice of a refund* or an option of another tour in our collection.

  • The hike up to the eruption site and back is over rough terrain and can last up to 2 hours each way. You need to be in good enough physical condition to be able to walk this distance.

*Due to our payment gateway provider's terms and conditions we can only refund 90% of the tour price once a payment has been made.
