Active Volcano (Geldingadalur) Adventure From Reykjavík
After thousands of earthquakes over the span of 3 weeks originating in the Reykjanes Peninsula, the lava finally found its way through earth crust on the evening of March 19th close to Fagradalsfjall, in a valley named Geldingadalir. The eruption is confined to this valley, which is surrounded by hills and higher ground, preventing the lava from flowing to nearby towns or cities.
Geldingadalir valley is not a remote valley by any means. It is a mere 9 kilometres from the nearest village, Grindavík. This makes the eruption site very accessible to people that are willing to make the effort of the hike to witness the aftermath of this magnificent spectacle of nature.
Even though the eruption ended in 2021 you can still see the hot lava flow that came from the volcanic cone. You will also see steam and gases rise from the hot lava field as well as the newly formed crater. NOTE: The picture shows the crater while eruption was still ongoing.
