Private Tour

Are you visiting Iceland and excited to see the active volcano Fagradalsfjall? Do you want to avoid crowds and get a personal experience? Then our private Fagradalsfjall tour is ideal for you!

Iceland has a new volcanic eruption: Fagradalsfjall, in Geldingadalur, on the Reykjanes peninsula. Pumping molten rock into the valley, this incredible marvel of nature is drawing big crowds. Acting like a huge fire geyser, throwing tons of glowing, orange magma hundreds of meters into the air, this is Iceland’s first eruption in 7 years, and it is practically in our backyard.

On this Fagradalsfjall tour, it will not take very long to reach the site where you can travel on foot directly to the active volcano, and one that we hope continues to be active for a long time to come. Opportunities like this don’t come around very often, so come and join us on this incredible, private Fagradalsfjall tour!

 

How and Where?

The eruption itself is only a short drive from Reykjavík. For this Fagradalsfjall tour, we will pick you up either at or near your hotel and from there you will head to the southern edge of the peninsula. Or, if you are driving your own vehicle, a professional, local expert guide will meet you on-site. After arriving at the parking lot, you will begin your hike directly to the site of the volcano. The path to the volcano is quite rough and can be steep, and so it is recommended for those who have some hiking experience.

 

The Blue Lagoon

If you so choose, after your Fagradalsfjall tour you can then head off for a well-earned soak in the soothing waters of the magnificent Blue Lagoon, and we possibly even be able to visit some other stunning sights of the Reykjanes peninsula along the way. This is just a short ride from the hiking trail where you will be able to relax in the calming, milky-blue waters, reflecting on your adventure and witnessing one of Mother Nature’s most incredible creations.
