FEEL THE HEAT
ICELANDIC LAVA SHOW is the only place in the world where you can safely experience hot molten lava in close proximity! The show is both educational and exhilarating as the wonderful reviews can testify.
The show recreates a volcano eruption, similar to what Eyjafjallajökull and Katla volcano are famous for, by pouring molten lava (1100°C / 2000°F) into the showroom and over ice. It is an epic battle between the elements and a unique opportunity to get close to red-hot lava, see it flowing, hear it sizzling, and feel the intense heat that radiates from it.
Come visit ICELANDIC LAVA SHOW in the heart of Vík, the charming town nestled in the midst of Katla UNESCO Global Geopark, surrounded by volcanoes, glaciers, and black sand beaches.
Watch as the hot molten lava flows into the showroom and feel the instant heat fill the room
It is an indescribable experience to see the ice instantly turn into steam and bubble through the lava
When fire and ice meets, the lava cools so rapidly that basaltic glass is created. This mixture is sometimes referred to as dragonglass which has become famous in the infamous BBC TV series of Game of Thrones
The founders of ICELANDIC LAVA SHOW are Júlíus and Ragnhildur, husband and wife and parents of three.
The idea behind the lava show was born in 2010 when Júlíus and Ragnhildur saw the eruption at Fimmvörðuháls, where the elements of ice and fire fought an epic battle. They were so blown away by the spectacle that they thought this should be something everyone should be able to experience first hand in safe conditions. The idea was ignited.
However, in 2011, their two older boys were diagnosed with autism and as a result, the couple set aside their entrepreneurial dreams to support their wonderful boys.
As the boys grew older, they kept overcoming one hurdle after the other, contrary to what experts and everyone else had expected. The boys' strength and perseverance inspired their parents who decided to revive their old startup dream.
They felt they owed it to their boys to follow through and show them that if you work hard enough and believe in yourself, anything is possible!
Several vital players, closely associated with the Icelandic startup community, have played a fundamental role in the development and growth of ICELANDIC LAVA SHOW. Whether via investments, grants or more intangible means of support, these sponsors decerve proper acknowledgement.
