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.
The building was originally built for the local grocery store but was renovated completely for the purpose of the lava show and restaurant inside with the aim of creating a modern yet welcoming atmosphere.
Inside, there is not only the best soup restaurant in Iceland, you can also find a souvenir shop with hand-made lava-related merchandise, some of which is made from our very own lava show and cannot be found anywhere else in Iceland.
If you do not have a car or don’t know how to get to Vík, no problem. We can suggest a few great tours by our travel partners, where our very own ICELANDIC LAVA SHOW is part of the package.

The village of Vík, or Vík í Mýrdal as it is often called, is the southernmost village in Iceland, about 180 km (2,5 hours drive) from Reykjavik. It is the warmest place in Iceland but also has the highest level of precipitation.
The natural beauty of the area is spectacular. Vík is nestled in the heart of Katla UNESCO Geopark, surrounded by green farmland and a black coastline so beautiful that it was named one of the ten most beautiful beaches on Earth.
In 2010, Eyjafjallajökull volcano became world famous for its tongue-twisting name and the huge ash cloud that brought air traffic in Europe and around the globe to a halt. However, it is Katla, the volcano the Geopark takes its name from, that is the greater danger. An eruption of Katla could melt enough ice to trigger an enormous flash flood, potentially large enough to obliterate the entire town. The town’s church, located high on a hill, is believed to be the only building that would survive such a flood.
