The following day we take you to the Volcanic Eruption in Geldingadalurto witness the raw power and stunning beauty of mother nature and get the rare chance to witness a Volcanic Eruption up close and personal. This first eruption in the Reykjanes Peninsula in about 800 years provides an unique opportunity to study the geologic mysteries of the region and is open for all to enjoy! After being shaken by months of increasingly disruptive earthquakes, Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula is finally experiencing the volcanic eruption that many geologists suspected was on its way.
The driver and guide will take the group to the start of the hiking route towards the volcano in Geldingadalur, where the group will be towards the volcano.
The difficulty level is: challenging. The total hiking distance is 17-20 kilometers in rough terrain and takes around 2-3 hours each way, up to 6 hours total.
Keep in mind that the sites around the volcano are constantly changing due to freely flowing lava, and the hike‘s duration can change.
Our local agents will follow the recommendations of the Civil protection service and cancel the tour if circumstances at the eruption site are unsafe.
Please be aware of the public guidance for hikers visiting the site. For more information, visit the Department of Civil Protection.
Be aware that the weather can change quickly and wear hiking shoes, warm and waterproof clothing.
Assume that the journey may take longer than planned.
Bring a packed lunch and water to drink.
Keep an eye on your travel companions. Fatigue and hypothermia come quickly. Stick to hills and ridges and avoid valleys and dells in the landscape.
There is a risk of rock fall. Beware of steep slopes
Eruption sites can change, and new eruption cracks may open on short notice. Gas pollution is strongest close to the area and can lurk in valleys and dells where it is particularly dangerous. Gas pollution can change on short notice if the eruption suddenly increases, and it is dangerous to be near the eruption sites without measuring instruments.
The eruption could last a maker of weeks, months or years, there is no way of telling. Should you book this package and the tour not happen due to either safety or the fact that the eruption and lava flow has ceased then your trip to Iceland will still go ahead and you will be able to either claim a refund of the tours value or select a new tour and put the value towards it.
