The LAVA Centre is a world-class exhibition focused on volcanoes and earthquakes, earning numerous awards in Iceland. This interactive and technologically advanced educational showcase delves into the history of volcanic activity, seismic events, and the formation of Iceland over millions of years.

The LAVA Centre is located in our town, Hvolsvöllur in South Iceland. It’s our favourite exhibition, we recommend it for all ages and even for that one family member that does not like museums at all! It’s fun, educational and surprising! It will give you insight that will make the rest of your trip more interesting!

It’s renowned for its exceptional design and technological innovation, the LAVA Centre serves as the ideal starting point for exploring the South Coast of Iceland, home to the most active volcanic region on the island.

Embarking on a journey from the LAVA Centre along the south coast unveils the awe-inspiring landscapes of dormant volcanoes and black lava beaches, providing a profound understanding of the scale and reasons behind volcanic eruptions. Additionally, it is a premier location to gain insights into recent eruptions in the Reykjanes peninsula.

Visitors to the LAVA Centre can explore the Iceland’s geological evolution, witnessing its rise as one of the world’s largest volcanic islands over millions of years, fueled by molten rock from the North Atlantic Ridge.

The exhibition chronicles Iceland’s eruption history since 1900 and sheds light on iconic volcanoes such as Hekla, Katla, and Eyjafjallajökull. Live earthquake monitors showcase the Iceland’s ongoing seismic activity, allowing visitors to experience earthquakes and geothermal phenomena. An immersive movie captures the immense power of recent eruptions, will make you even more excited about the trip ahead.
