Volcano eruption tour with Reykjanes Peninsula sightseeing description

On this Volcano eruption tour with Reykjanes Peninsula sightseeing included you will get to see what Iceland is all about.

All the history it has to keep. The first settler of Iceland used to own the whole peninsula and many historical things have happened there. 

Just ask yourself this question, have you really been to Iceland if you haven´t been to the volcano eruption?

This is NOT something you want to miss!

On this trip, your awesome local guide will pick you up from your accommodation or closest bus stop between 09:30 and 10:00.

First you will start with the sightseeing so you will have the best for last and get to see the old lava before you see the new lava.
First, you will drive from the Europe part of Iceland (geologically speaking) over to the North American continent.
We know, it’s a bit confusing, but your guide will explain everything.
There, you can walk between the two continents and also take pictures of yourself holding the
bridge between the continents. It’s a popular photo spot. 

Kirkjubasar cliffs are next.
This place is absolutely magnificent. Seeing the cliffs located on the Mid-Atlantic ridge with waves braking at them and the small island outside of them is so calming but yet, surreal at the same time. Everything so volcanic and surrounded by lava fields.

Just next to Kirkjubásar cliffs are the geothermal hot springs named after the crazy woman that used to live there. Yes, she was crazy. Literally. Wait until you hear the story from your guide.
Next is what you have been waiting for. A hike to the volcano eruption. Make sure you have your phone or camera charged and to get a picture of you next to the eruption so all of your friends can see that YOU WERE THERE!

We recommend bringing good hiking shoes with you
If you do not own them, we will lend you for
FREE! Yes, I said for free.
