If you are looking for an unforgettable hiking trip for your group then the Westman Island hiking tour is the thing to do. It gives you an experience of a beautiful nature and education of one of Iceland’s biggest natural disaster, and a glimpse into people’s lives during the eruption in 1973.

Walking Details

We start the tour on the harbor and walk to Skansinn and there over the new lava from 1973.  A local guide tells you about the eruption, the story when the people had to leave their home in one night. We walk on the edge of the lava where there is a great view over the town. From there we will go up the Volcano that is not a very difficult hike.

We end the tour in Eldheimar the volcanic museum, and get the whole story in pictures after you have walked over the lava and saw all the change of the landscape. This museum is a must visit for everyone coming to Westman Islands, because it is focusing on one of the Iceland´s biggest natural disaster in 1973.

LAVA WALK WITH A LOCAL

 

Fun and lively walk over the lava with a local. The guide goes through the history of the eruption in 1973. Tells you story´s of the people and gives you a glimpse into the lives of the local people building up the town afterwards and living on the island today. The punch line is the top of the volcano.  For those who don´t want to go up the mountain or just halfway, the guide will guide them towards the museum where everybody will meet in the end.  The walk over the lava is about one hour with stops and one hour going up and down the mountain. It´s good to have about an hour in the museum.

ELDHEIMAR

ELDHEIMAR MUSEUM

 

After the walk, we will go to Eldheimar. An amazing award-winning museum about the volcanic eruptions, especially the volcanic eruption in Vestmannaeyjar in 1973.
An interactive exhibition that focuses mainly on the eruption in 1973 but also about the Surtsey island eruption which created the youngest island in the world. It is so great going there after the walk where you have been walking over the lava and see all the changes in the landscape.
