Volcanic Hiking Tour

Our Volcanic Hiking Tour takes you to the volcano Eldfell. We will walk from the harbor to Skansinn, where you get to see an old fort and an old wooden church, which was donated to the people of Westman Islands by the state of Norway by way of commemorating the millenium of Christianity in Iceland. From Skansinn we walk in the new lava, walk on the edge of the lava boundary with a beautiful view over the town. Then we walk up the newest volcano Eldfell which was formed in the eruption in 1973. Our way back takes us through the town where we end our hiking tour.
