Lava Show - 50 minutes The only live LAVA SHOW in the world! Are you fascinated with lava, volcanoes, and geology? Would you like to see red-hot lava up close in a safe environment? Are you embarking on a journey through Iceland, the land of ice and fire? If the answer is YES, you need to experience LAVA SHOW Reykjavik. It is the only live lava show in the world and has become one of the must-see experiences in Iceland! Just look at the incredible reviews! The address is Fiskislóð 73, Reykjavík 101, Iceland An incredible and unique experience In order to recreate a miniature volcano eruption, they superheat real lava from the 1918 Katla eruption and once molten, pour it into a showroom full of people. It is an incredible, unforgettable experience. In an instant, the showroom heats up to a toasty temperature. And as the audience sits safe in their seats yet only a few feet away from the flowing lava, it is mesmerizing to see, hear, smell and feel the incredible heat that radiates from it. It truly is a sensational experience! The show begins with a short welcome by the host and then a short educational video about Icelandic volcanism, the volcanoes close by - with special emphasis on the largest volcano eruptions in Icelandic history and the volcanic dangers surrounding the capital area Once the lava starts flowing into the showroom, the host literally starts PLAYING WITH THE LAVA! It is an entertaining, unique, and educational experience, completely different from everything else you've ever experienced. And after the show, you truly see the rest of Iceland with different eyes and a newfound appreciation for nature. It really is a must see experience. 2.
