The visit to the Volcano House was part of another tour I booked. At first, I was not keen on going to the Volcano House....but I am glad that I did. The movie they showed was worth the visit. When they first said it was...More

The Volcano House is adjoined to the restaurant Icelandic Fish & Chips. You even have to enter through their main entrance. It’s really a gift shop with a home cinema room attached and a few rocks in the middle of the gift shop area. We...More

A 15 min introduction about the 30 volcanos and their hundreds of eruptions and watching 2 documentaries about 2 major recent eruptions (1973 and 2010) and their impact on people, make this a great thing to do with teenagers (and adults)

We didn't actually do the volcano stuff as we met some friends who were lunching in the fish restaurant adjoined to the volcano house. The spicy cod sandwich was awesome and the staff were friendly.

Really interesting films - learned a lot of what Iceland and its people has had to endure due to the volcanos. Much of the world was more concerned about disruption to air travel. Here’s a chance to find out how Iceland suffered.

We had the darnest time finding this place, but it was well-worth the trek. There are two back-to-back films--documentary and general information about the volcanoes and their impact on Iceland. Almost an hour altogether. Time well-spent.

The 55 minute film was interesting, but there are so many things to do in Reykjavik go only if it rains or snows. In other words don’t rush. Nice restaurant , but not great service.

Sorry, don’t recall the price, but I didn’t consider it expensive. We got the age 60+ seniors discount.
