Reykjavík Erupts

The volcanoes around Reykjavik are overdue. On this half day tour we enjoy the stunning view of the most active ones, hear everything about the activity and what is most likely that will happen in next eruption. We take a walk in the lava, stop at a beautiful geothermal area with endless colours, scent of sulphur in the air, boiling mud eyes and steaming fumaroles.
