Volcanic Eruption Geldingadalir

Would the power of an active volcano incentivize your group?

Finding the balance between work and play is easy in Iceland, and right now is the ideal time for a once-in-a-lifetime volcano experience. Perfect for incentive trips, the Geldingadalir Eruption is less than an hour’s drive from Reykjavik and is readily accessible with wide, graded walking paths. With decent boots, active walkers will see the volcano in about an hour, and the hike makes for an unforgettable half-day excursion.

Plenty of airplane and helicopter sight-seeing tours are available from Reykjavík’s downtown city airport for those not inclined to venture up by foot. A bird’s eye view provides a true sense of the scale of the geological forces at work. 

Most conveniently, the eruption is happening very close to the bucket-list destination of the Blue Lagoon. Combine a volcano tour with a Blue Lagoon soak for an unforgettable one-day incentive experience. Time your travels right, and you can enjoy Iceland’s famous midnight summer sun and beautiful long sunsets—or sunrises. And if you are lucky, longer autumn nights bring northern lights and the chance to see the glow of the volcano from the ethereal waters of the Blue Lagoon!
