This incredible combination tour blends two of our most popular activities into one perfect package, encompassing a plethora of amazing sights that epitomize the land of fire and ice. It begins with the gorgeous yet tragic Lakagígar area – a vast volcanic crater that was carved into the earth by one of the most vicious volcanic eruptions in recorded history. It occurred in 1783 – leaving in its wake a massive 27-kilometer fissure which is now decorated by rich vegetation and a horrific famine that killed around a quarter of Iceland’s population, making it the perfect example of the powerful geothermal activities that effect Iceland to this day.
From there we will head to the stunning geothermal area known as Landmannalaugar, renowned for its multi-colored rhyolite mountains that gleam in the sun and its many bubbling hot spring valleys. The final stop on the tour is the iconic Grímsvötn eruption site – an alien landscape that is profoundly beautiful. It is situated on the southwestern side of the Vatnajökull Glacier, Europe’s largest, and erupts more frequently than any other volcano in Iceland. The majority of the volcano is hidden beneath the vast ice cap, making it the perfect marriage of fire and ice. That coupled with the epic volcanically formed landscape to the north of the Mýrdalsjökull ice cap, ensures that this breathtaking combination tour really does encapsulate some of the finest sights on offer in the land of fire and ice.
