Leirhnjúkur and Krafla Volcano
Access to the Krafla area is easy in the summertime but can be difficult and even dangerous in other seasons due to snow- and weather conditions. Never the less the Krafla area is seldom as beautiful as when the snow has covered most of the ground and you see the pink hills, black, grey and red warm lava standing out of the snow.
If there is a lot of snow and conditions allow, guides will bring snowshoes and hiking poles for you so we can safely hike in the area. We will hike the Leirhnjúkur area and go to the top where we will enjoy the view of the whole Caldera. On the way there we will see different colors in the lava and steam coming up all around us as we pass through the geothermal area. We will get you ready to have an enjoyable time with us in a wonderful setting.
