What you'll do

I will pick you up at your accommodation in Reykjavik/ Keflavik. We will travel through highly volcanic Krysuvik area where will take trip back in time and learn about Iceland's history. We will start were lava started- underground! First step of our trip will be in a lava cave, in fact two caves where we will spend about 1,5 h. In this diverse and colorful scenery we will learn how lava tubes are created. Then we will look for signs of earthquakes by traveling along rough landscape of Kleifravatn lake- “Icelandic lake of monsters” to reach mud pools and steaming grounds of Seltún geothermal area. Next stop is Graenvatn lake with its explosive history. Our final destination will be Reyjkanes volcanic area which is located exactly between continental plates in the Mid Atlantic spreading ridge. Here we will hike for 2 hours trough lava field among strip of volcanoes where you will have chance to take a look in to 15 m depth crater and admire beautiful landscape shaped during “Reykjanes fires” eruption from XII century. Trip is not really challenging, but we will be underground so its not suited for people with claustrophobia. Remember to take proper clothes and good hiking shoes.
