Cool tour, pretty relaxed but engaging

Great tour. Volcano has stopped erupting (for now) but you still get to see spectacular very young lava flow, which is quite rare! Some other nice points of interest along the way too.

This was one of my favorite tours that we did during our week long trip to Iceland. How often can you say you hiked a volcano and got to see molten lava rock in its original form and location? Our guide was friendly and informative.

This tour was the highlight of our trip. We walked on a lava field that was still warm to the touch with smoke still rising 50 yards away. Then we climbed to the top of the mountain to see the crater and the miles of lava that spilled from it. Just amazing!

No what I expected

A very good tour. Tom, our tour guide was great and there’s nothing wrong with the tour is just I was not what I expected. Based on the photos looks like you are going to see the real molten lava coming down the volcano. There’s not lava flowing at all. This is the only one reason I booked this tour. If you have a rental car like my case was save the hefty 80 dollars price tag and do it yourself. After driving the whole entire island going even off raid trust me I could if do it myself. If only staying in Reyjavik without a rental if you want still do it. Is a lot of walking but worth the view !

The view of the lava flow was amazing. It was black and cooled but steam was still rising. The views of geysers and hot pots on the way were also nice.

Unforgettable Experience!

An amazing tour, taking us to the lava field created by Fagradalsfjall last year and then up to a viewpoint on a nearby mountain. James the guide was excellent and took us to many other sites, including the bridge between continents, not in the original tour itinerary. Not to be missed whilst staying in Reykjavik!

A Wonderful Big BOOM of a tour

While the actual time on (and in) the Volcano had to be shortened due to increasing tremors, Tom our guide came up with additional stops for us to enjoy the day. Who will ever forget being able to actually play the pianos used for Volcano Man

Weather was bad but the guide made up for it!

We had 3 out of 5 days of nice weather in Iceland but on this day, unfortunately, the weather was really windy and rainy. That said, we're still happy we spent the day on the tour. We couldn't hike the trek up the volcano (weather) but did frolic about the smoking lava fields. Because we missed the trek, we visited other fascinating sites we would have missed.

Very enjoyable and interesting hike up to still steaming lava fields. Easy hike up well marked path A, a bit steep in places but shouldn't deter anyone. Guide Einar was very informative and considerate leader. Great fun!

A little underwhelming
Derrick_A

The pics all show flowing Lava and that's not what you get on this tour. The lava has hardened and is solid rock now. You still get to see beautiful views and scenery and the guide took us to a few extra spots which was a plus but it just wasn't what I expected. I was a little underwhelmed. Make sure you check and see if there has been a recent eruption before you book this.

Best tour of our trip
Jennifer_H

This was the highlight of our Iceland trip. We absolutely loved it, even though we did not see molten lava. James stopped at several spots on the way to the volcano and took us halfway up the volcano. We did not hike to the top because it would have been too dangerous due to the heavy clouds. Advice- wear hiking boots. The terrain is steep and wear layers because the weather can change abruptly. I highly recommend this tour and would do it again.

Very good experience. Due to the weather we had an altered trip but thoroughly enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend going on.
