Lunar Landscape

TOUR ID: AT-22

This six-hour action-packed tour is an introduction to Iceland´s extraordinary volcanic geothermal power in the lunar landscape of the Reykjanes area.

Iceland is geology´s youngest country, formed by molten lava breaking through the Earth's crust where the European and American tectonic plates are drifting apart, which can be seen at Kleifarvatn and is evidence why Reykjanes is so volcanic.

We continue to Geldingardalir, where our newest eruption started on the 19th of March 2021. There we will hike as conditions allow and see the newest lava in Iceland.

On this tour you can add a stop at Iceland´s famous Blue Lagoon for a revitalising swim in the heated waters under the open sky, where you can literally soak in Iceland´s geothermal energy (admission is booked seperately). Expect panoramic views and spectacular sites.
