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.

"Reykjavik Sightseeing"

We took the 8 hour bus trip to see as much as we could in a short period of time. The bus was modern and comfortable. The tour guide was informative and we saw some very different landscapes. Parts of Iceland are unique and there are opportunities for awesome pictures. A favourite was watching the Geyser erupt every 8-10 minutes. Very interesting.

"South coast classic"

Just got back from the tour! We went on a large bus that was in pristine condition and always at a comfortable temperature. Though large, the tour felt more intimate than other large bus tours we had been on. The group may have been smaller and both the guide and driver reached out and connected with everyone on the tour. Both answered questions and were very happy to chat about Iceland and Icelandic culture. The audio guides were a nice addition

"Wonderful waterfall tour"

We did the southern Iceland tour that included the glacier hike and visiting three waterfalls. The bus was smaller than other companies, but had free wifi and individual tablets with information about various sights along the way. Our guide was excellent and went with us through a stream into the hidden waterfall area. He also took many pictures of us. I would highly recommend this company and would book them again.
