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.

"So good!"

We went on two tours with Reykjavík Sightseeing - The Golden Circle and South Coast - and everything was amazing! Very professional and sweet guides, great selection of tours, easy pick-up options and beautiful scenery (of course). Would definitely recommend!

"Northern Lights"

Elizabeth and the bus driver who’s name I did not catch were amazing tour guides. They were both very personable and made a great team. Elizabeth has such an outgoing personality and was able to make the trip super exciting, even though seeing the lights was not a guarantee. We were about to call it a night when the lights came out to give us a beautiful show.

"Great tour, great tour company"

We took the Golden Circle plus Secret Lagoon tour, it was the perfect day trip and Alex our tour guide was fantastic. Learnt a lot about what we were seeing but also lots of other nuggets about Iceland. They even made a few unscheduled extra stops to show us other sights and to let us get out and take photos of the incredible sunrise.
