CD Guided Tour



Departure from Skaftafell at 08:00 and from Kirkjubaejarklaustur at 09:00. The Laki crater row, a spectacular natural phenomenon, is only accessible by 4x4 vehicles. The 25 km long volcanic fissure with some 100 crater cones erupted in the year 1783. The resultant mass of emitted lava is considered to be the largest ever in historical times or about 565 km square / 12 cubic km. Most of the craters stand 20 — 50 metres tall, the highest rising up to 100 metres over the surroundings. The material is black and red scoria and lava-splatters; some are even made of solid lava. Departure from Laki is at 16:00 hours.
