Volcano Hike

We start the hike on the top of Hengill volcano 800 m above sea level. This is one of the largest and most powerful geothermal areas on Earth, but don’t worry this volcano has not erupted for 2000 years. As soon as we head out you’ll see clouds of steam coming up from the boiling mud pots. We hike downhill into the ancient crater and the green luscious valley with a hot river running through it.

Like a movie scene from Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones. Here we will find a good spot to bathe in the hot, steamy water and enjoy some Icelandic snacks. A truly Icelandic experience!


Then we continue the hike downhill passing more steam, grazing sheep, stunning scenery, and even a hot waterfall. At the bottom, we will get picked up by our driver and taken back to Reykjavik with Icelandic music on the stereo feeling a little bit high on Icelandic nature.

This hike is downhill all the way and can be done by all ages from 8-65 years.
