Eyjafjallajökull a famous attraction site for its once erupted volcano this colorful area has an ice cap and is well know as the place where ice and fire coexist, in this tour you'll explore this place and all of its natural beauty.

What to expect?

Do you remember the Icelandic volcano that erupted in 2010 severely disrupting flight traffic in Europe and further afield? You might just remember that its name is almost unpronounceable. Well, that´s Eyjafjallajökull (give it a try: “ei-ya-fyat-LA-yer-kitle”). It´s a located basically in our backyard. We enjoy watching it from Midgard Base Camp.

In our Eyjafjallajökull winter tour we have several options, depending on weather and snow conditions. In all options, we explore the area around the volcano Eyjafjallajökull (and its icecap and outlet glacier Gígjökull).

In one option we cross the unbridged rivers on our way to Gígjökull, an outlet glacier of Eyjafjallajökull, where a flood from the eruption came down, dramatically changing the landscape (an entire lake disappeared!) A film about the eruption, shown at Þorvaldseyri Farm, and based on the farming family´s experiences and feeling, is also very worth incorporating to this trip.

If the conditions are right we actually drive onto the glacier to get to the top crater. In good weather the scenery from the top is spectacular with a view over the inland of Iceland, the surrounding glaciers, the black beaches and the Westmann Islands (as well as, of course, a look into the vast crater from which over 500 tonnes of ash per second were at one time being ejected!).

What is included?

Hotel pick-up and drop-off in Hvolsvöllur area – Other pickup locations on request.
