Inside the Volcano

Price 42,000 ISK




The dormant Þríhnjúkagígur (Thrihnukagigur) volcano is a unique natural phenomenon. By setting up the necessary gear and equipment, inside the volcano has created a tour that opens the door to a new world.

It really isn´t that complicated to experience it. All you need is the willingnes to do a moderate 45-50 minute hike (to get to the crater) and the guts to descend 120 meter / 400 feet to the bottom of the crater in an open cable lift.

Here you can see a short video to see what it´s all about

We ask all visitors to behave responsibly during the tour. The environment is extremely sensitive and we expect visitors to leave no footprint in the environment. What you carry in, you carry out.

Duration: 5 – 6 hours

Departures: Several departures every day. The first tour at 08:00 and the last tour in the afternoon.

Fitness level needed: Moderate (the difficulty is 2 out of a possible 5). No knowledge of hiking or climbing is required. It´s not an uphill walk, but the surface is partly uneven. This is NOT a tour for those in no or limitied physical shape.

Bring with you:

Good hiking shoes – if you have them. We don´t recommend sneakers, they will definitely get dirty and may get punctures.

Outdoor clothing – the weather in the mountains can be very different to the city. A warm sweater and jacket are very useful, not least because it´s always the same temperature inside the crater – about 5-.That´s cold!

A Camera – You will want to remember this trip. yes, you can take as many pictures as you want!

A good spirit – This tour is all about having fun.
