This second eruption in the Reykjanes Peninsula in about 800 years provides a unique opportunity to study the geologic mysteries of the region.

The Reykjanes Geopark lies on a peninsula straddling two continents, creating a volcanic wonder in the drift zone between the North American and Eurasian plates. On this drive, you'll be surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, lava fields, and volcanic craters, with an otherworldly landscape of wind-blown palagonite and petrified troll formations.

Our tour begins at the youngest volcano in Iceland, Fagradalsfjall, where a 40-minute hike brings you to a viewpoint of the devastating yet beautiful aftermath of the recent volcanic eruption. We will then visit the bridge between continents, highlighting the peninsula's unique position on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

On the return to Reykjavik, we'll stop at Gunnuhver, Iceland's largest mud pool, and feel the ground shake from its boiling water and steam. If the road to Seltún is open, we'll also visit the boiling mud pools and steaming, colorful landscape.

The volcanic landscape can be uneven and challenging. Therefore, good hiking shoes and warm clothing is mandatory. There is no running water on the way to fill a water bottle, so bring plenty of water and a hearty lunch.
