See the Volcanic Eruption in Iceland
| María Reynisdóttir
A once in a lifetime opportunity! We introduce two new day tours to see the volcanic eruption in Bárðarbunga in Iceland's remote northeastern highlands with your own eyes.
Bárðarbunga Volcano 4x4 Super Jeep Tour
This 4x4 super jeep tour brings you as close to the eruption as restrictions allow or about 50 km/31 mi away from the erupting fissure. Enjoy not only views of the lava glow but also a visit to Aldeyjarfoss Waterfall, a relaxing dip in a natural geothermal pool at Laugafell and a northern lights search on the way back to Lake Mývatn in North Iceland from where the tour also starts.

Volcano Eruption Helicopter Tour
The ultimate treat - see the eruption up close from the safety and comfort of a helicopter! See the amazing sight of fiery lava vents, cinder cones, lava lakes, glowing skylights and rivers of flowing lava. Tours are available either from Akureyri in the North or from Reykjavík or Hrauneyjar Highland Center in the South.
