Thank you so much for the kind words.
Yes it is true that it can be hard to find but it is next to the road and the road authorities are putting up some better signs along the way.

Children at this age usually have no problem visiting the lava tunnel and in fact, they love it. We do provide crampons during winter as sections can be slippery but unfortunately, we don't have crampons for such small feet (at least not for the youngest one). Only sections are slippery so if you can carry the youngest ones for a bit, you should be fine.
