Iceland Volcano Holidays

If your interest in volcanoes is bubbling away then we have plenty to fire your imagination. Sited on a geological hot spot, Iceland is one of the most volcanically active places on earth. On average there is an eruption there every five years, most recently the well-publicised eruptions of Eyjafjallajokull and Grimsvotn. Thankfully most volcanic eruptions are perfectly safe and once the initial activity is over, the aftermath can create an inspiring spectacle as Iceland’s magnificent other-worldly landscape continues to be defined today.

Volcanoes have long been a big attraction of this north Atlantic island, and plenty can be found on the doorstep of Reykjavik. So whether you want to spend an entire week exploring Iceland’s most impressive eruption sites or just stop off for a curious peak as you drive along the coast, then you've come to the right place! Avid thrill seekers can sign up to our Volcano Hotline to be kept informed of live eruptions and any potential trips to see them.

From live eruptions to dormant volcano explorations, for many years we've been sending our clients to experience the splendour of Iceland’s iconic volcanic landscape. Whether you want to descend deep into the magma chamber of a dormant volcano, fly over a crater in a helicopter, or simply hike over Iceland’s lava fields, we have a holiday just for you. Our collection of specialised volcano holidays includes a superjeep adventure, self drive exploration and northern lights combo. Alternatively, speak to our specialists about how you can enjoy Iceland’s volcanic curiosities on your tailor made itinerary.
