As an important eruption is going on in southern Iceland, this could be your once-in-a-lifetime chance to see active lava flows and possibly lava fountains from close and in relatively high safety.
5-11 August 2023 tour - limited spots available!

We will spend almost an entire week in southwestern Iceland to access the eruption multiple times, according to weather conditions etc.
Of course, there is also plenty of time to discover other highlights of southern Iceland (e.g. Blue Lagoon, the Rift Valley where one can see the boundary between the North American and Eurasian plate, waterfalls and much more).
Our expert volcanologist guide Evelyne Pradal will accompany the group.

Tour guide

Dr. Evelyne Pradal is a trained geologist and volcanologist with a passion of showing and teaching her subject to the general public. Born in Cantal, in the heart of the Auvergne French volcanic field, she studied in the renowned Center of Earth Sciences of the university of Clermont-Ferrand, one of France's leading research institutes in the field of volcanology.
Her research and trips led her to study volcanoes in Mexico, the Caribbean, East African Rift and other areas.
After completing her doctorate degree in 1990 she went on to work as consultant and teacher in earth sciences, and she has been organizing expeditions and study trips to volcanoes in Italy, France, the Caribbean, Ethiopia and Tanzania, Djibouti, Canaries islands, New Hebrides trench, Indonesia, ... designed to share knowledge and the fascination of her subject, the beauty of our living earth, to the general public. She is also (co-)authored the books: "Tout savoir sur les volcans" (2018, Ed. Fleurus jeunesse) ("A la découverte des volcans extrêmes" (2013, Vuivert De Boeck Ed) "Au coeur des volcans" (2004, Ed. Fleurus - Geo Ados). Evelyne with her charming smile joined our team in 2010 and guides trips to Ethiopia, the Caribbean, Canaries islands, Italy and new study trips such on Auvergne volcanoes, her homeland, and Tanzanian Rift Valley.

Physical requirements

You should be in good physical condition and used to hiking 10-20 km per day on moderately rough terrain, but without significant climbing involved.
The trail to the vent area (if open) is 20 km roundtrip over uneven terrain. Viewing the front of the lava flow requires much less hiking.
Conditions can change unexpectedly and this is only a rough estimate.
