Best Fagradalsfjall volcano tours

Seeing an eruption of an active volcano with your own eyes is a once in a lifetime experience. To do it, you have basically two main options – go on your own or take a guided tour. Because an eruption of Fagradalsfjall volcano is still only quite recent, high-quality guided tours are scarce. That’s why we decided to make a short list of the best Fagradalsfjall volcano tours available at the moment.

We will do our best to update the list and broaden this article, and apologize for any discrepancies, which may occur because everything changes really quickly these days.

Fagradalsfjall volcano tours general information

Volcano hike – time

A hike from the closest parking spot takes from 1 to 2 hours one way, depending on your physical condition. If you are going on your own, definitely add up some time for finding a parking spot and walking from there to the start of the trail. Also, don’t forget to add a time to enjoy the volcano itself 🙂

Volcano tours – price

As of April 2021, prices range around 400-600 USD per private group, i.e. the more of you the lower the price. If you go solo, i.e. you will be part of a bigger organized tour, do expect a price of around 100 USD per person. Of course, you may find cheaper and more expensive tours. Always check the current price with the provider, as these may change quickly.

Volcano tours – what’s included

A typical volcano tour includes the following:

  • Reykjavik pickup with a driver
  • An experienced guide
  • Free cancellation up to 24 hours before the trip

A typical volcano tour does NOT include the following:

  • Shoes, clothes or any gear (no special is required, though)
  • Food, water, snacks

There are exceptions, though, and almost always there is an option to buy or hire anything you need, so don’t be afraid 🙂

3. Guide to Iceland

Guide to Iceland is a huge Icelandic tour company with many good references. They’ve also recently added a Fagradalsfjall volcano tour and based on their reviews we can also recommend you to take this one.

Your experience would be slightly less personal in our opinion since Guide to Iceland serves virtually thousands of clients. The price will also be a bit higher because we cannot offer you any discount codes for this company.

All conditions and price are clearly stated on their website and you can easily book via their system.

4. Adventures.com

Adventures.com is another big Icelandic tour and reseller company. Their references are good, although in specific cases we got some worse feedback on their tours. This may be due to the huge numbers of clients they are serving. 

They’ve also recently added a Fagradalsfjall volcano tour and this one seems to be one of the cheapest out there if you plan to go just as a couple. Do expect more crowds / bigger group though, as a cost for a lower price.

5. 2 Go Iceland

2 Go Iceland is a smaller tour company that also recently added Fagradalsfjall hike to their tour portfolio. If you are looking for a more personalized experience, this may be a choice for you. 

They don’t have an online booking system though, so you have to contact them manually by email or social media. Although 2 Go Iceland doesn’t have many reviews, this is a regular tour company, so don’t be afraid to book with them.

6. Amarok Adventures

There’s a Spanish nomadic couple that also recently added Fagradalsfjall hike as one of their tours. They have a beautiful website and their approach seems to be very personalized. They don’t have any booking system, so you have to contact them directly.

Although not that well known, Amarok adventures seem to be a legitimate small tour company worth trying.
