Fimmvörðuháls Volcano



An exciting day tour that takes you to the area of the recent eruption that made headlines all over the world! On the way from Reykjavík to the Mt. Eyjafjallajökull glacier massif you will, depending on visibility, get a chance to observe the world famous volcano. Just further east, we turn onto a mountain track leading up the Fimmvörðuháls pass, where leaving our vehicles behind at 800m altitude, we gear up for an hour long hike up to the craters Magni and Móði (1100m).


These are the craters that erupted just before the principal crater of Eyjafjallajökull, and the fresh lava is still steaming and glowing under the surface. While exploring the craters and these new grounds you will get a sense of the forces of nature that were at work. From up here some breath taking view over the Þórsmörk valley and the glaciers descending from the Mýrdalsjökull ice cap are also ours to enjoy.


On the way back a 4×4 drive down onto the black sand beaches will let you admire the beauty and power of the North Atlantic Ocean. Last but not least, the picturesque waterfalls Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss are mandatory stops where the brave ones can venture behind the waterfall as it falls off its cliff!
