It is the only one in the world where you can see the wonderful colours of the rocks as you are lowered very smoothly and slowly to the bottom of the volcano to explore the magma chamber, and to touch the rocks. It is a "WOW". A great experience.
Firstly let me re-assure everyone you have a knowledgable guide with you at every stage of this adventure.
Guide 1. It takes about 50/60 mins. to walk across the flat, but uneven lava field with brief stops. One stop lets you walk or jump across the 2 tetonic plates (straddle is best for photo). Great fun.
Guide 2. Serves tasty lamb soup and coffee. (toilets on site)
Guide 3. Kits you out with harness and helmet.
Guide 4. Takes you uphill to the opening of the volcano and clips your harness to rails of the bridge.
Guide 5. Harness you to cradle/lift and descends with you.
The first guide is with you inside the magma chamber.
Expensive. Yes, but worth every krona as it is a unique opportunity to see and appreciate our world below the earth. We are in our late 60s and loved every minute. The joy of doing this trip stayed with us for days..
