If you have not been on that trip, you have not seen Island. The trip to the volcano is an adventure itself and getting inside gives you a fantastic and outstanding possibility to experience mother nature form a totally unique point of view. go go go!!!

“Fascinating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

My husband and I were not prepared for an almost one hour walk to reach the entrance but is was worth it. Is was astonishing how fast the time passed by. It seemed as if you would enter another timelevel. I would recommend everybody who has the opportunity to do it even when the time passes to fast.

“Unique opportunity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

Where else in the world can you visit an empty magma chamber? It's a thrilling experience that leaves you with your mouth open. I certainly recommend it to everyone who comes to Iceland. The only thing I would ask for : give everyone a bit more time at the bottom to enjoy this unique wonder of nature a bit longer. I was a bit apprehensive about the lift to the bottom as I'm not too good at heights. But it's really no problem, the basket doesn't swing.
Wear good shoes as you must walk cross country for about 45 minutes, and don't forget the waterproof.

“Amazing and unique experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

My husband and friends did this as unfortunately I had a bad foot, and it was definitely the highlight of the holiday. It takes quite a while and you need to be quite fit but it was worth it. I'm gutted I couldn't do it!

Thank you very much for your positive review.

We are thrilled that your husband and friends thought it was the highlight of the trip and it is very unfortunate that you could not join them in the experience. Hopefully they took a lot of photos to show you.

You are right about the duration - The tour takes about five hours if you include hotel pickup and drop off. The hike is a big part of the tour and it is about 3 kilometers each way - So yes, it can be demanding for some people.

Thanks again for sharing your experience with us.

“Nothing compares to it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

The tour is far beyond the regular arranged trips and exceeded all our expectations. In the course of six hours approx., accompanied by a small team of professional guides, we were offered uncountable "wow-moments". It started with a walk to the top of the volcano. On the way up don't miss the opportunity to jump from one continent to the other and have your guide take a picture. The view from the top of the volcano is simply stunning. A vast spectrum of colors illuminate the inside of the volcano and during 15-20 minutes you will get the sensation of discovering an unknown planet. Forget the time in space and enjoy - it's so much worth it.
