I'm very glad that I choose to go on this trip. Iceland was wonderful, and Inside the Volcano tour was the best experience in Iceland. From the hike to the volcano, every minute was to remember. I can not emphasise enough, how good and attending was the tour guides. And they did know what they were doing. After a little while, we were like in a group of very old friends although we were just met.
The volcano itself was also very interesting although I was not very into geology. It was a once in a life time experience.

If rugged hikes and awe-inspiring sights are your thing, visiting þrihnukagigur is for you. Nowhere else can you be lowered into a volcano of this kind to witness the aftermath of lava where it once flowed. The hike to and from the volcano is exhilarating with a constant, endless picturesque view of Iceland's renowned lava fields.

The guides are perfect for this kind of adventure: very helpful, fun, and knowledgeable.

This was a phenomenal experience. I don't think words or pictures can do it justice. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable. It was worth every penny!!

At first, we joked about going into this volcano we had heard about, on our way to Iceland. 5 days later, we booked tickets even though it seemed quite pricey. If I had known then what I would get for the money, I would've gladly payed up! :)

I can honestly say that the visit inside Thrihnukagigur earlier this summer, is the most awesome thing I've done yet. A knowing and kind crew made the trip worth while, and the volcano itself... Wow. It makes more sense now a couple of months later, than it did right afterwards.

Of course it's an extra plus if you're ever so slightly into geology or the environmental side of life, which could bring out that extra "Oomph" in these kind of excursions. But then again, the colors of the volcano's inside, the physics behind the emptying of lava, and the fragility of it all - worth every penny and time.

Interesting how this will evolve as a tourist attraction.
Once again, big thanks to the tour crew - it's all much thanks to you!
