Steaming lava and Iceland‘s youngest craters
An exciting day tour that takes you to the area of the recent eruption that made headlines all over the world. Our destination is the Fimmvörðuháls pass and the craters Magni and Móði (1100m) that erupted during the first phase of the eruption. Just east of the world famous Mt. Eyjafjallajökull volcano we turn onto a mountain track leading up the Fimmvörðuháls pass. Leaving our vehicles behind at 800m altitude we gear up for a 3 hour long hike to the craters where the fresh lava is still steaming and glowing under the surface. While exploring the craters and these new grounds you will get a sense of the forces of nature that were at work. A breathtaking view over the Þórsmörk valley and the glaciers descending from the Mýrdalsjökull ice cap are also ours to enjoy. On the way back you admire the picturesque waterfalls Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss where the brave ones can venture behind the waterfall as it falls off its cliff!* Includes a 3 hour hike up and down from the craters of Fimmvörðuháls. Note that the weather can change rapidly, so bring extra clothes.
