Iceland boasts a rich volcanic landscape, being among the most volcanically active countries on Earth. Embarking on an Iceland volcano tour provides an intimate encounter with these powerful natural wonders. Delve into their transformative influence on the Icelandic terrain and experience the dynamic geothermal activity they present today.

Why Choose an Iceland Volcano Tour?

What’s the one thing that’s had a bigger impact on Iceland’s landscape than anything else? Volcanoes. Their powerful forces have shaped and scarred the land over millions of years—and they continue to today.

You’ll see them dotted across the country. There are over 100 volcano systems in Iceland, and over 30 that are still active. With their smoking peaks and mysterious names—Hekla, Katla, or Eyjafjallajökull—they’re an essential part of Iceland’s nature and culture. And they’re a must-see on your visit to the Land of Ice and Fire.

An Iceland volcano tour is the best way to see these giants. At Icelandia, we have a wide range of tours to suit any tastes and preferred travel styles. Whether you want to hike across geothermal landscapes or take an Iceland volcano helicopter tour, we have something for you.

Active Volcano and Volcanic Eruption Tours

Fagradalsfjall, with its recent series of eruptions, has quickly risen to be a sought-after spot for active volcano tours in Iceland. Intriguingly, it's erupted multiple times within a short span and is projected to continue its sporadic eruptions for decades to come.

As each new eruption unfolds, Icelandia stands ready, offering meticulously planned tours to the eruption sites.

Prioritising safety above all, we work closely with local authorities, ensuring real-time updates and monitoring to provide an experience that's both awe-inspiring and secure.

The breathtaking scenery around Fagradalsfjall offers more than just the eruptions. Hike to the summit to uncover fresh lava fields and witness the reshaping of the local landscape. Nested within the Reykjanes UNESCO Geopark, a plethora of volcanic marvels await exploration nearby.

For an underground experience, descend into ancient caves sculpted by millennia-old lava flows. Or, for a bird's-eye view, embark on helicopter tours over Iceland's volcanic terrains.

Adventurous spirits can trek across expansive volcanic regions on foot. A favoured hiking route is the Laugavegur trail, stretching from Landmannalaugar to Þórsmörk and Fimmvörðuháls.

Along this trail, the aftermath of the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption—a natural event that brought significant travel disruption—is vividly evident.
