Another great reason to visit Iceland, the LAVA Centre showcases the country’s spectacular volcanic geology.

The long-awaited Lava Centre is Iceland’s newest drawcard, complementing the area’s incredible scenery, explaining the science behind the creation of the country over tens of millions of years and will be central to our fabulous summer programme.

As well as offering impressive interactive displays and exhibits, the centre boasts an earthquake simulator, lava corridors, geology globes, huge models of Iceland’s volcanic core, cinemas and a large rooftop platform with panoramic views towards the Eyjafjallajökull, Katla & Hekla volcanoes. As well as being truly fascinating for adults, the centre will appeal to families, bringing science and geography classes to life.

Easily accessible via by the country’s famous Ring Road, the new centre offers a full multimedia experience, immersing guests into Iceland’s volcanic and seismic life. Inside, visitors can learn all about the country’s powerful inner forces, from eruptions and lava flows to earthquakes, faults and glacial floods.

See how large convection currents move mantle rock beneath the Earth’s plates, watch Iceland’s elaborate monitoring system for surveying volcanoes and earthquakes and get up close and personal with fiery volcano and earthquake simulations.
