It you arrive early at the airport, then it is a great idea to have airport transfer to your hotel in Reykjavik and at the same time experience the wonders of high temperature area on Reykjanes peninsula, and possible have a stopover at the new volcanic area in "Geldingadalur". A guided hiking tour to see the newly formed lava and crater.
The eruption started on the 19th of March 2021 only about 30 min drive from the international airport. It was very soon a very popular destination for both Icelanders and tourist visiting Iceland. This eruption at Reykjanes peninsula has not been active since September 2021. But in spite of that, it is still a popular destination to visit, mainly to see the new lava and the new crater. The last eruption took place in the peninsula some 800 years ago.
We will take you on a hiking tour to the hot lava with a view over the new crater. The hiking tour can be organized from an easy 1 hour hike up to more difficult 3 hours hiking tour, depending on your available time, ability and willingness to walk up mountains. It takes only half an hour drive from the airport to the starting point of the hiking tour. This is definitely once in a lifetime experience, which you will never forget.
