Tour Description

Ever wondered what a volcano looks like on the inside? This unique volcano tour, takes you literally inside a dormant volcano, through the top crater and to the bottom of its magma chamber, once filled with steaming hot lava.
 
The dormant Þríhnúkagígur volcano (yeah, good luck trying to pronounce it!) is a unique natural phenomenon. By putting up the necessary gear and equipment, we´ve created a tour that opens the door to a new world. And it really isn´t that complicated to experience it, only a moderate 45-50 min. hike to the crater and then the guts to descend 120 meters/400 ft to the bottom of the crater in an open cable lift.
 

Itinerary Details:

Fitness level needed: Moderate (the difficulty is 2-3 out of a possible 5). No knowledge of hiking or climbing is required. It's not an uphill walk, but the surface is hilly and uneven. This is not a tour for those in no or limited physical shape.
Distance Walked: Approximately 3 km (2 miles) each way. The walk usually takes around 45-50 minutes (depending on the people in the group). A guide will be with you at all times on the walk.
Bring with you: Good hiking shoes and warm clothes. The weather in the mountains is unpredictable and can be very different from how it seems at ground level. Wear warm clothes (sneakers and jeans will not do you any good).

Excellent tour, driver friendly and informative, guide excellent and team at volcano very friendly. 50 minute hike to volcano and back was challenging due to rough terrian, hiking shoes a must. A very memoriable trip, this was the reason we came to Iceland and we were not disappointed.

The tour was just so fantastic! The guide, Gummi, was such a friendly fellow, and the technical staff at the volcano was also very friendly and professional. The experience inside the volcano was so incredible, we have never been in such a unique place before. Thanks a lot!
