A great show run by real enthusiasts

Absolutely unforgettable experience of seeing lava from a mere meter and feeling it's heat melted with professional explanations and a touching family story by the founder himself. A must visit for everyone going to Vík/Southern shore tour. And! They give you real lava shards!

Epic. When they pour the lava and you feel the heat in the room. Wow! Also the guide was very good and talked about volcanos and life in a region with an active long overdue volcano.

Seeing the lava flow was so cool...or hot! They explain the history, geography and include a personal story behind the last eruption of Katla volcano. They also have a soup shop. Everything we tried was incredible. Went back a second day for more soup it was that good.
Highly Recommended

Es war ein absolutes Erlebnis! Ich hatte uns wegen der Kinder (11 und 14) abgemeldet, war selbst eigentlich nicht interessiert. Aber der Eigentümer macht es mit so viel Begeisterung, das reißt alle mit. Sehr informativ, spektakulär und witzig. Toll und unbedingt sehenswert!!
