The Icelandic Lava Show
ICELANDIC LAVA SHOW is the only place in the world where you can safely experience hot molten lava in close proximity! The show is both educational and exhilarating as the wonderful reviews can testify.
The show recreates a volcano eruption, similar to what Eyjafjallajökull and Katla volcano are famous for, by pouring molten lava (1100°C / 2000°F) into the showroom and over ice. It is an epic battle between the elements and a unique opportunity to get close to red-hot lava, see it flowing, hear it sizzling, and feel the intense heat that radiates from it.
Come visit ICELANDIC LAVA SHOW in the heart of Vík, the charming town nestled in the midst of Katla UNESCO Global Geopark, surrounded by volcanoes, glaciers, and black sand beaches.
It was during the 2010 volcanic eruption at Fimmvörðuháls that the business idea emerged. The couple went up to the glacier to witness the eruption up close and personal. It was an epic battle of fire and ice and they were utterly mesmerized by the crushing heat, deep mysterious sounds, and the stark contrast of the bright orange lava fountain against the dark cooling lava and snow-white glacier.
And that is what sparked the idea! As volcanic eruptions are unpredictable and dangerous events, where access is more often than not prohibited to the public due to poisonous fumes and general risk of, well, burning (!) they wanted to create a show where people would be able to experience real flowing lava in a safe environment!
