Mt. Hekla

Hekla is one of Iceland's most active volcanoes. With over 20 eruptions in and around the volcano since 874. During the Middle Ages, Europeans called the volcano the "Gateway to Hell".

The most infamous volcano in Iceland

Hekla is part of a large volcanic ridge. The most active part of this ridge, is a fissure about named Heklugjá.

Many Europeans believed that Hekla was one of two known entrances of Hell.  Many extraordinary and dreadful legends about the volcano existed and was unclimbed until 1750, when two naturalists hiked to the summit. Up there, they could not find anything to substantiate the legend and since then, the mountain is frequented by all kinds of people.  The easiest way up is from the north.  On a fine day, the view from up there is simply unbelievable.

Having carefully researched and read the reviews of this trip, we booked and were so glad we did. The tour was well structured with plenty of time at each attraction (45 mins to 1hr at each). There were also refreshment and comfort breaks along the way. The coaches were very comfortable with WiFi and a USB charger point at each seat. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable and definitely enhanced the experience.

"An amazing experience!"

From pick up from our hotel to being dropped back at our hotel around 8 hours later, we had the most fabulous Iceland experience. Our tour guide was excellent, funny and engaging throughout...not overbearing but gave us all we needed. You get an interactive tablet (so bring headphones) that had a map and information as you drove along- excellent way of getting information as you could choose from a wide variety of languages. The map was GPS linked so as you drove the tablet automatically started to tell you information relevant to your position on the tour.
