The 7 minutes lift-tour down the volcano is a very different experience. One you get down the volcano you just stand there in this big “room” looking at all the colors, wondering how burning lava blowed out of it thousands of years ago. Definitely do this

It was an incredible experience to be inside the volcano and I can recommend the tour. The guides were informative and friendly, and the soup was good.

After a nice walk over lava fields covered in lush green moss we descended into the colorful volcano. Friendly guidance and the hot soup at the end of our visit to the volcano was worth the whole trip. 😎

It is interesting and unique to be able to descend into a extinct volcano. The tour, comprising a hike to the volcano, descent and about 30 minutes inside, is all as expected. If anything I was slightly underwhelmed, but perhaps I had read too much marketing material on the trip. It is good, no question, but it is very expensive and you’d really have to be not too concerned about money to feel ok spending over £500 for two people. It is poor value for money but presumably that just reflects the demand and there are evidently plenty of willing customers.
