Geldingadalir Volcano Hiking tour

We offer volcano tours to the active volcano in Geldingadalir. We run our volcano tours all year, but we can’t promise for how long the volcano will erupt or the conditions on your chosen day. On this day tour, we take you to the eruption site and then hike close to the crater and lava flow. This also gives us the chance to visit a few prime locations on the way.

For the volcano, we will provide all safety gear such as gas masks, gas sensors and in winter we’ll provide crampons. You need to be wearing good hiking shoes and warm clothes, bring headlight, water and pack-lunch or snacks. You also need to be comfortable with walking on uneven and slippery surfaces on the way to the volcano.

The drive to the volcano takes about 45 minutes from a hotel in central Reykjavik. From the parking lot is about 20-30 min easy hike to the edge of the lave field. From there is about an hour medium/challenging hike to the crates. There are different routes available depending on the weather and conditions of the day.

Before or after our visit to the volcano we might visit Krisuvik geothermal area and lake Kleifarvatn, Krisuvikurbjarg, Selatanga or other locations based on weather and conditions on the day.

We will provide you with a complete packing list, recommended clothing and equipment list. Safety briefing and professional guides.

  • We also support press photographers and photography/news projects, with permits to drive/fly in close to the volcano. For commercial projects please shoot us an email
