Tour Itinerary

As you journey to Vík, you'll be surrounded by incredible natural landscapes, from majestic glaciers to rugged volcanoes and even black sand beaches. Once you arrive, make sure to give yourself enough time to get settled before the show begins.

The show kicks off with an exciting introduction from the host, followed by a fascinating video about Icelandic volcanism. You'll discover what makes Iceland such an active volcano island and why the volcanoes surrounding Vík are some of the most dangerous on the planet.

But the real magic begins when the lava starts flowing into the showroom. With safety goggles on, you'll be mesmerized by the bright orange color of the lava and the heat it radiates. As the lava cools, it bubbles and crackles, creating an unforgettable sensory experience that's hard to look away from.

After the showstopping display of lava, the host dives into more detail, explaining the different aspects of this incredible natural phenomenon.

As the show comes to a close, the doors to the showroom open, and you'll be able to step back into the real world. But don't be surprised if you're still in awe of the wonderland of ice and fire you just witnessed. The Icelandic Lava Show is an experience you'll never forget!
