LAVA “Iceland Volcano & Earthquake Centre” is a brand new interactive educational exhibition centre dedicated to the unique volcanoes and geology of Iceland. Located in Hvolsvöllur, just off Road 1, it’s an easy day-trip from Reykjavík or a must-see addition to your South Iceland trip.
The LAVA centre features an interactive exhibition, here your students can explore the art and science of geology and the volcanic systems in Iceland. Information from the past century’s eruptions demonstrates just how strong a presence volcanoes have in contemporary Iceland. Your students will feel the forces of nature as they experience an earthquake and see the Fiery Heart of Iceland, a 12m high structure simulating the Mantle plume and the magma flow underneath Iceland. In an educational learning centre, students can explore the wonders of volcanoes and earthquakes through interactive computers and there’s also a cinema auditorium where visitors can see the magnificence of volcanic eruptions in HD and 4K.
