Enjoy a day of volcanic adventure and Blue Lagoon relaxation.
This first eruption in the Reykjanes Peninsula in about 800 years provides a unique opportunity to study the geological mysteries of the region! Your driver and guide will take the group to the start of the hiking route towards the volcano in Geldingadalur, where you’ll hike towards the volcano. You will have approximately 1,5 hours to view the volcanic eruption. The hike is about 1.5 hours, each way. Please note that this is an estimated time. The sites around the volcano are always changing due to freely flowing lava and the hiking time can change.
After an exciting hiking trip you’ll end the day at the Blue Lagoon. Immerse yourself in the milky-blue geothermal seawaters. Included in the comfort package is entrance to the Blue Lagoon, silica mud mask, use of a towel and 1st drink of your choice.
