Lava Fields

Lava fields, also known as lava plains or lava beds. are large and, barring any encroaching moss growth, barren expanses of ragged basalt lava flows whose molten march was long since halted by the forces of a flat ground. These fields often go on for miles, but geologists prefer to measure them in cubic kilometers.

About Lava Fields

Lava fields, also known as lava plains or lava beds. are large and, barring any encroaching moss growth, barren expanses of ragged basalt lava flows whose molten march was long since halted by the forces of a flat ground. These fields often go on for miles, but geologists prefer to measure them in cubic kilometers, and having done so, concluded that the leader of the pack is Stóravítishraun at 30-50 cubic kilometers, closely followed by Trölladyngja at 20-30 and Þjórsárhraun at 26.
Lingo has it that these desolate vistas, or “monogenetic volcanic fields”, constitute collections of cinder cones and Maar vents amid their fellow lava flows and pyroclastic deposits and sometimes they center around a stratovolcano, whose molten earthen innards once popped like a boiling blackhead from the surface of the earth.

"Comfort is King!"

Our south coast tour was lovely! The black sand beaches felt almost other worldly. Waterfalls are stunning. The south coast tour is a must!...even though it is a very long day. However, booking with Reykjavik Sightseeing is a really great option. Of the four companies we had tours with, they were by far the best.

"Golden Circle Tour with a Toddler"

Visiting the Golden Circle with Reykjavik Sightseeing was a great experience. They had a car seat for our 18 month old that allowed him to easily see out the window during the ride between stops. The buses are very nice, and they provide a tablet with tour facts.
