(Former name: Guided Geldingadalur Volcano Hike and Blue Lagoon Visit)
The first eruption in the Reykjanes Peninsula in about 800 years provides a unique opportunity to study the geologic mysteries of the region and is available for all to enjoy! After being shaken by months of increasingly disruptive earthquakes, including thousands in the past weeks, Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula finally experienced the volcanic eruption that many geologists suspected was on its way. The eruption was ongoing for 6 months straight and has left a dramatic new and warm lava field.
As we drive along the Reykjanes peninsula, you are constantly in the presence of the roaring Atlantic Ocean, endless lava fields, and volcanic craters. An alien landscape, decorated by windblown palagonite and petrified troll formations.
Your guide will take your group on a hike to view the lava flows left by the volcano. You’ll have about 2 hours in the area of the volcano to view the area and take pictures.
After an exciting sightseeing around the Reykjanes Geopark you will end the day at the Blue Lagoon. Immerse yourself in the milky-blue geothermal seawaters. Included is entrance to the Blue Lagoon, a silica mud mask, use of a towel and 1st drink of your choice.
Please wear hiking shoes and bring crampons as conditions can be slippery, especially during winter.
