My trip to Iceland was filled with amazing things but this was the highlight. I loved everything about it. The guides were great and everything was well organised. Even the walk to and from the volcano was unforgettable, trekking through a snowy lava field on a bright, sunny day with icy winds blowing was so much fun, I could happily... More

Really amazing experience, I doubt I'll get to do this again. It is quite expensive for 30 minutes inside the volcano but you kind of understand when you see the amount of people/effort that goes into making these trips comfortable and enjoyable.

More amazing thing than you can imagine. Things to know - the walk to and from the volcano is not easy and it's extremely windy. Even on a warmer day the wind can be brutal. The good news is there's free coffee and soup at base camp.

I was already in love with this experience after the hike up to the volcano and then it just continued to get better. Being inside the volcano was like nothing I've ever seen or will again. It was amazing! A totally surreal experience. The guides and staff were just wonderful, super helpful and had a great sense of humour. The... More

Bought 2 tix. Back went out. Had to go to the hospital. Company would not refund the ticket price. I called and had an argument with their customer service guide. This company made like they would go under without my money.

AWESOME is all i can say, photos do not do it justice. Colours are amazing, the lift down was intense and the feeling when your down in the volcano was just pure magic. Money well spent.

We had the best time! It was amazing !!The only thing I would mention is that you need to be prepared with adequate shoes and clothing . I luckily had dressed warm and had hiking shoes. I am in shape but since it was windy and wet, I was surprised at how challenging the walk was. We had a few... More

My husband and I went Inside The Volcano the day after we got married. It was the ultimate way to follow up on the previous day. The guides were incredibly friendly and knowledgable. Being inside a volcano is such a unique experience and worth every penny. We will definitely visit again next time we are in Iceland.

My wife and I visited here and coupled our tour with a helicopter ride to the mountain. We arrived first thing in the morning and were the first ones into the volcano for the day. We even saw the guides biking up the volcano on their bikes equipped with "lava rock" tires. I'm kind of glad we opted for the... More
