Explore Iceland with confidence: Update amid Reykjanes seismic activity

The team at 22 Hill Hotel would like to reassure you that travel to Iceland remains open and safe for visitors. You may have seen recent news reports about increased seismic activity in Iceland. Please note that the seismic activity described in these news reports is highly localized to the town of Grindavík on the Reykjanes Peninsula. There is no impact on attractions or infrastructure on the rest of the Reykjanes Peninsula or the rest of Iceland.

All tours, packages, and shows continue to operate seamlessly without disruptions. The Blue Lagoon is temporarily closed, but there are other lovely lagoons in or close to the Reykjavik area. You can rest assured that your planned experiences remain unaffected, and we look forward to providing you with an exceptional experience.

Iceland is no stranger to volcanic activity, and people from around the globe visit Iceland to experience our abundant volcanic resources. Icelandic authorities and the public are highly prepared for such events, and Iceland has one of the world’s most effective volcanic preparedness measures. The Grindavík area is closely monitored and constantly evaluated based on the best scientific data. 

At this time, scientists consider any disturbance to air traffic an unlikely scenario. However, a potential disruption to flight traffic cannot be entirely ruled out, and authorities have implemented preventative measures to ensure public safety foremost. You can find the most up-to-date information on Visit Iceland and a map of the affected area, here and here.

We hope to see you in Iceland soon and are here to help if you have any pre-travel concerns.

Best Regards,

22 Hill Hotel
