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.
