Eyjafjallajokull Volcano Tour


Visit Iceland's youngest craters

You will visit the area surrounding the 2010 eruptions that made headlines all over the world.

You will head towards Eyjafjallajokull glacier and, depending on visibility, you may see the famous volcano, whose eruption blocked the air traffic in Europe. Just further east, turn onto a mountain track leading up the Fimmvorduhals pass (800 m  altitude ). There we gear up for a hike up to the craters Magni and Móði (1100m).

These craters erupted just before the principal crater of Eyjafjallajokull, and the lava is still steaming and glowing under the surface. You will see with your own eyes the forces of nature at work as well as some breathtaking view over the Thorsmork valley and the glaciers descending from the Myrdalsjokull ice cap.

On the way back to Reykjavik, you will first stop at the black sand beaches along the south shore in Iceland. Then admire the picturesque waterfalls Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss before heading back to Reykjavik.

The tour includes a 3 hour hike up and down from the craters of Fimmvorduhals. Note that the weather can change rapidly, so bring warm clothes. 


What to bring:

  • Warm clothing
  • Rain gear
  • Hiking boots


  • Guided Super Truck & Hike tour with Driver-Guide
  • Approx 3 hours hike
  • Pick-up and drop-off at accommodation in Reykjavik
