Documentary at the Volcano House

An Emmy nominated documentary about some of Iceland's most famous eruptions

You come to the Volcano House a few minutes before the hour and sit down in a charming old cinema. The documentaries are two, one about the famous eruption in Heimaey in 1973 when the town there woke up in the middle of the night with a powerful eruption breaking out just half a mile away from the nearest houses. The second short documentary is about the infamous eruption in Eyjafjallajokull, back in 2010, that stopped the air traffic for weeks spreading ash all over the northern hemisphere.

Drive to the volcanoes

We pick you up at the Volcano House after the 50 minutes documentary and we head off the volcanoes.

In just 20 minutes you will be out in the moon like lava fields while hearing exciting stories about former eruptions in the capital area. It is a fact that we could any given week now have lava streams once again running through the city again, burning down houses, bridges, and infrastructure. Not during the tour though, we would know several days ahead. :)

My favorite off the beaten path places

The tour is never exactly the same from one day to another. We always choose the best options, based on weather and your wishes.

We know the volcanoes next to Reykjavik like the palm of our hand. We have dozens of beautiful off the beaten track places to choose from and we carefully choose the ones we think will best fit our day depending on weather and your lust to explore the pristine nature of the Reykjanes peninsula.
