In this half day tour, you get to know all about the eruption, that soon might come crawling into the city of Reykjavik. You are going out there to see where it is most likely going to rip the earth open and shoot up billions of tons of molten rock.

In just half an hour you can be out in the volcanoes, enjoying breathtaking views of this moonlike landscape. You will love the fact that the groups are small – max 6 people in a luxury Land Rover Discovery which makes the tour almost a private tour.

Our guides are friendly. They are locals, so they know Iceland inside out. And they love their job.
