A great experience. First of all, the weather was perfect: the sun was shining, the sky was blue, and the hike was very pleasant: it felt like walking on the moon (it's a feeling you can easily get in Iceland, just go to Hekla if you don't believe me). Our guide was very nice and funny, and gave us lots of information. Before going down we were provided with a harness and a helmet: the trip down was totally safe.
Inside, the scenario is great! The colours are so beautiful, and you can see many layers of rocks that give you the idea of the passing of time...plus, you're INSIDE A VOLCANO!
You cannot take rocks from the volcano as a souvenir, but nonetheless I actually got out the Thrihnukagigur with a rock, even if a bit different from the ones you see inside: an engagement ring ;)
Yes, our trip was also unforgettable because my boyfriend proposed while we were inside. So we were probably the first couple to get engaged inside a volcano. ^____^
Once outside, we were offered champagne with the lamb soup, and everybody cheered.
What a day! :)
