On the 10th July, 2023, the Litli-Hrútur volcano erupted, marking the third time that a volcano burst out in this area in a span of three years.
This eruption site is very accessible to people who are willing to make the effort of the hike to witness this magnificent spectacle of nature. During this tour, you will see the recently erupted volcano site where you can really see a newly formed lava-covered field. It's still possible to see steam and gases rising from the formed lava field and newly-appeared fissure. This offer should be on your bucket list, don't miss it!
Please note: The total hike to the eruption site and back is 20 km long. Take note that the shorter route is actually more challenging, so please evaluate your physical preparation before booking this tour. The hike takes around 9 hours and is considered hard/challenging. Due to safety regulations, we reserve the right to adjust the itinerary and/or choose different hiking routes depending on conditions.
Volcanoes are a natural phenomenon, and the level of volcanic activity at the site varies daily. Even if the volcano is not erupting during your visit, visiting the area is still fascinating.
