- OPENS SPRING 2017
LAVA - Iceland Volcano and Earthquake Centre is an interactive experience that will reveal the epic forces of nature that shape our planet and created Iceland. You will literally feel the power beneath our feet and experience our biggest earthquake. You will feel small, you can touch, you can feel and you will see the "fiery heart" of Iceland.
Some of the experiences are not for the faint of heart. LAVA is a must-see. It’s a destination where you can learn, feel and taste. It's located in the town Hvolsvöllur in the heart of South Iceland and “within an arm’s reach” of many of the country's top tourist destinations.
LAVA is located by the foothills of our greatest volcanos on Iceland's Ring Road. LAVA will provide you with varied scenes and hands-on learning experiences, as well as a great 360˚ viewing platform that overlooks the great volcanos of Eyjafjallajökull, Katla and Hekla along with the beautiful Westman Islands off the south coast.
LAVA will be the HUB for daytrips and tours in South Iceland and a Tourist Information Center for the region. LAVA will include a souvenir shop, restaurant and a cozy coffeehouse.
Lava Centre Reviews
Thorough and exciting presentation of volcanology and continental plate shifting. Very interesting and educational. more »
Bisher unsere schlechteste Erfahrung, was Essen angeht. Teuer, geschmacklos und sehr unfreundliche Mitarbeiter im Restaurant. Essen sie lieber an der Tankstelle in der Nähe! more »So far, our worst experience in terms of food. Expensive, tasteless and very unfriendly staff in the restaurant. Eat them at the gas station nearby!
Interesting center focused on the grilled of Iceland. There is a big display of where earthquakes and rooting are happening on Iceland. They have a spacious restaurant. Nice clean toilet makes it a good stop in your way out East
Absolutely amazing place. Lots of interactive attractions and really interesting facts/information that you want to read and listen to because of the way it is explained. Lovely views from the terrace too. A great way to spend 2-3 hours on the golden circle.
