Itinerary

Information

Experience something unique and learn what hides behind the science of volcanic eruptions. 

Described as a must-visit place, Lava Show is where you get to see, smell, and feel what it’s like to be near the erupting volcano without risking your well-being. During the show, you’ll witness molten lava flows that emit intense heat and even hear the sounds that it makes as lava takes upon everything along its way. Gain valuable knowledge about the land of fire and ice in the most interesting and interactive way. 

Meeting location: Fiskislóð 73, 101 Reykjavík.

The event will occur in a little dark room in which the center stands furnace. Suddenly, a beam of orange light brightens the room as molten lava comes from a hole in the ice. Together with the sight of the bubbling and hissing lava and the crazy shapes that it makes before starting to cool down, you’ll also get to feel the intense heat of the lava. This is the best way to encounter this natural phenomenon and feel its power. In addition, an experienced guide will tell you all about this process and how they produce the molten lava. The Icelandic Lava Show is an unforgettable experience that combines education and first-hand experience.

The Icelandic Lava Show, the only place that provides people with such an experience, was founded by Júlíus and Ragnhildur. The husband and wife duo always knew that they wanted to create a company together. In 2010, the couple witnessed the volcanic eruption at Fimmvörðuháls. Júlíus and Ragnhildur were fascinated by this experience, seeing the battle of fire and ice in front of their eyes. Knowing how incredible and mesmerizing this event was, enchanted by that strong heat, deep sounds, and strong smells, they wanted to share this experience with more people. This is how the idea of creating such a place came to life. Knowing how dangerous volcanic eruptions are in real life, the two found a safe way for people to witness this natural wonder.
