Reykjanes Peninsula

Grindavik, Iceland

Explore the still-cooling lava from recent eruptions with the potential to catch the next lava flow.

The Reykjanes Peninsula in Southern Iceland is experiencing a period of volcanic unrest, with eruptions that have occurred each of the last three years. The latest eruption has ended, but it could erupt again any day. Fly over fresh lava and view volcanic craters. See steam rising from the vents in the ground and the nearby geothermal power plant, and catch incredible views of waves crashing along the shore and the snow-capped mountains in the distance.

Private guided flight: $95

Until the next eruption happens, there is still plenty to see on your private drone flight over this active volcanic region.
