“the reason I booked my trip to iceland”
Reviewed 10 January 2013

Once I saw this trip was available I had to book a trip to Iceland and I wasn't disappointed. The walk to the volcano adds the the trip, much better than pulling up in a coach, you see lava tubes and general volcanic scenery. The "window cleaner" lift felt safe and added to the sense of adventure. Once inside you just want to take photo after photo. The whole trip is well organised and something that is truly unique.

“Once in a life time”
Reviewed 23 November 2012

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.

“Unique and fascinating adventure”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

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!!
