  • A fun science lesson on a drizzly day. This was a fun activity for the whole family, not sure we’d see anything like this outside of Iceland

  • Definitely a unique experience! The woman who ran our lava show was very knowledgeable about the area and lava throughout Iceland. As she did various things with the lava, she explained why it moved that way or broke that way. Very interesting! The best part is they let you take a piece home which is such a unique souvenir with a great story behind it
  • Icelandic lava show offer you to see real lava, which I never would have in my tour in Iceland otherwise. The lava has added silica to help the melting, but it doesn't perturb much its behavior and so the experience. The real magic of the show comes from the speaker, an experienced geological scientist who loves the lava and shares its passion. It was a genuine moment, with a sparkling mind enjoying sharing science and stuff around the red hot substance. We loved it !
  • Incredible and educational show we can’t miss. What a experience with the real lava of its heat, brightness & different forms under different conditions. And, the best is the professional presenter has been patiently educating our next generation. Thank you to everyone.
  • An eye-opening experience that’s fun and informative at the same time! The host was very enthusiastic as well, which made the show even better. If you plan to spend the day around Vík, it is highly recommended to stop over for a show as well as a meal in The Soup Company, in which the same location the show takes place.
  • This one hour show, accompanied by clear and demonstrative (and funny) explanations, became one of the highlights of our trip. Much better than books or YouTube videos, it gave us a clear understanding of the geological dynamics of Iceland. This real story of "fire and ice" was interesting for us, and will be a long lasting impression for our kids.
