Overview
Make an adventurous descent inside the remains of Iceland’s dormant Thrihnukagigur volcano during this small-group excursion from Reykjavik. Traverse the surreal landscapes of Iceland’s countryside on your way to the Blue Mountains, hiking through the area’s craggy lava fields. Then follow your guide inside the geological site's immense subterranean interior, its walls still scalded from an eruption that took place 4,000 years ago. This small-group excursion, limited to 18 guests, also includes all necessary safety equipment and round-trip hotel transportation.

Every part of this experience was easy on time and really fun. We got picked up right at our hotel in Reykjavík only had a couple stops at other hotels to pick up other explorers and we are off on a half hour ride to the ski area where we start. Very easy hike through a lot of the field very scenic and beautiful about a 45 minute hike if your average hiker. Get to the base camp enjoy some warmth split up in the groups and go up into the volcano. after the exciting tour of inside the volcano we went back to the base camp had some fantastic lamb stew there is a vegetarian option and then head back to the ski area to catch a shuttle bus which dropped right back off at our hotel extremely convenient. 10 star experience. Tour guides were fun and patient.

This was an experience like no other!! We had an amazing time and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Iceland. It was unforgettable and stood out as a top highlight of our trip. Not only was the volcano itself amazing, the soup was amazing as well! Our tour guides were wonderful, and once again, we would highly recommend.

My partner and I had an absolute blast. The walk even in the rain was so beautiful and fun. Our guide, Swan, had great energy. I know it’s a slightly more costly activity, but it is so worth it. Pictures cannot do the environment justice.

Highly recommend this experience. You can't stand 400 feet down inside a volcano that erupted 4000 years ago anywhere in the world other than here.

A very unforgettable experience. The tour guide is warm and professional. The mutton soup was very tasty. And there is an arctic fox in the base camp.
