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.

"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.
