Fagradalsfjall Volcano Hike

Experience the ultimate adventure with a private guide



Please note that this tour is NOT to the active volcano or the glowing, moving lava from the newest eruption in Grindavik, as the local police restrict access to those areas for safety reasons. This tour is to Fagradalsfjall Volcano, and it happens that during this tour, we will be on a mountain with a great view of the newest eruption valley. Then we continue to the Fagradalsfjall lava field & crater area. Viewing the new eruption is not guaranteed, as it depends on the daily conditions of the volcanic activity.


 We adhere strictly to the civil protection guidelines to guarantee your safety. Our guides are locally accredited, professionally trained, and have extensive experience, having conducted these hikes hundreds of times.

Operated by 2Go Iceland Travel

This private tour to the active Fagradalsfjall volcano in Iceland and the smokey lava valley is suitable for everyone, including seniors or families with small kids. 

On this tour, you will see the newest "ongoing" eruption from Grindavik. As this area is restricted to the general public, the best option is to hike to Fagradalsfjall, and from the hiking trail, the newest eruption is visible. Please note that this information may change at any time as the situation develops daily. 

It's a custom hiking experience with your private guide to the Fagradalsfjall volcanic eruption in the Reykjanes Peninsula. You will control the pace, and nobody will rush you during the tour.


You can select to be picked up at your accommodation or self-drive to our meeting point. Both options are available to book using our booking engine.


The guide will choose the type of hike based on the weather conditions and your fitness level to ensure a tailor-made excursion.

We will visit the volcano area, walk along the newly formed lava, and get closer to the volcanic crater and the smokey valley (weather dependent).


⚠️ Tour Safety Assurance: In the event of an active volcanic eruption, our comprehensive safety and emergency protocol is immediately implemented. This involves our guides utilizing gas meters to assess air quality and assure your safety. Emergency masks are also readily available if the situation demands. We stay constantly vigilant of the safety guidelines issued by the SAAR team (Iceland's Search, Rescue & Injury Prevention Association) and local authorities. Your well-being is our utmost priority.

Flexibility is the key to this tour, as we may adjust the schedule based on the weather conditions. Since this is a private tour, the hike can be custom, and the starting time will be flexible if required. 

Your guide will adjust and decide the best path based on your fitness level and stamina.

The hike to the Fagradalsfjall volcano crater can take 30 to 60 minutes each way.
