A very fun experience!
This tour was really good. It gave a totally different experience in Iceland. Relaxing in Blue Lagoon without any time limits was awesome, especially after my muscles ache from the horse riding, which was lovely and picturesque by the way. I was a complete newbie at horse-riding, but I found myself staying on my horses. The guides are also distributed evenly to ensure that everyone is safe. I would recommend this trip to everyone.
Fantastic, Very Special and just Magical, we loved this tour and would recommend it to anyone
What an amazing experience! I was so nervous about doing this but the walk to the volcano was pretty easy and the descent was not at all scary! I would do this again in a heartbeat!
Worth every cent. The guides where very patient with me as I walked slower than the rest of the group. I chose a pick up and return to hotel tour Descent into Thrihnukagigur Volcano and Hike which I booked via Viator prior to leaving my home country. The tour only operates 15th May to 30th September and is an all day adventure. I was picked up from my Reykjavik hotel at 9.30am and transported to the bus depot where you are connected with another bus to take you to base camp. Once at base camp you are fitted out if you wish with rain coat and pants .It is then off to the volcano about a 40min level but sometimes rocky hike. There is a defined trail to follow a guide will be in front as well as a guide at the back of the pack. On route the lead guide that I had was pointing out things of interest like the fault in the earths crust that you actually walk across via a bridge and can see. Upon arrival at the hut you are offered soup tea coffee etc after which you are outfitted with helmet and safety harness and off up the hill to the entrance of the volcano. Once at the top a window cleaners cage awaits you. You are hooked up and lowered inside the volcano. Hold your breath and be ready to be surprised but remember to take those photos. After being lowered to the bottom and you exit the cage you are instructed where you can and cannot go. There is a path of sorts marked with red top painted sticks seems to be how things are marked and guided through Iceland one side goes 30 metres to the bottom and one goes 80 metres to the bottom but both go in a circuit and you end back where you started. You are given about an hour to explore alone. Be warned very very rocky and only your headlamp and internal lighting to guide you. After marvelling at the fact that you are inside a volcano and nothing like Jules Verne Journey to the Centre of the Earth and observing all the colours and majestic of it all it is time to ascend the volcano. So strapped up again and this time up yo
This tour was awesome! Our guide Indy was very knowledgeable and courteous. 3 out of four of us in my group had never been on an ATV and he made sure we were comfortable before we set off. I would definitely book this again on a future visit.
Most wonderful unique experience. Would recommend to everyone.
Absolutely amazing! Easy for beginners! The tour guides were great, friendly and a lot of fun! I highly recommend going. You can pack a lunch or buy some food/drink at a gas station/rest stop on the way. I suggest packing a sandwich and some snacks. You can bring a full backpack, but pack light. Also, do not wear baggy pants to avoid cutting them.
We saw a truly spectacular display of northern lights on a clear night in the bay of Reykjavik. The warm jumpsuits were great to have as we watched from the top deck of the boat. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave a great explanation of the science behind what we were experiencing. Great tour!

It is the correct use of the word 'AWESOME'. Amazing trip and worth every Krona. Great guides and felt super safe with our Mountain Rescue guide who worked the Elevator that takes you down. Ragga was a great guide too. Loved the walk in and out to the Three Peaks. AND the ladies in Basecamp make a magnificent soup. As they say - just DO IT
Our guides were fantastic, I went alone on this tour as the group I went with was interested in something else. I was so comfortable going alone, we had great weather on our side when we arrived and got to stay on the glacier for hours. Our guides were very knowledgeable and had safety on their mind. Highly recommend this tour!
Really worth doing. Although pace was quite quick given the very wet and windy conditions, the terrain was quite flat although rocky and steep/slippery in some places. Overall I would highly recommend doing this tour.
Once in a lifetime experience! Completely worth the cost of the trip. Just breathtaking inside the volcano.
This was a great experience. A rare opportunity which shouldn't be missed!
Amazing journey into the magma chamber. One of a kind experience and should not be missed.
We really enjoyed this tour. The boat was nice. It is important to bring a camera with a zoom lens. You won't get pictures off your iPhone. We bought one just for this trip and got amazing pictures of Puffins. It is not Puffin season right now...but they will be back in May-August.

The absolute highlight of our stopover in Iceland! The little islands where the puffins were was not far from the mainland, so we were able to get there quickly and see the little guys. And we didn't see one or two - oh no! There were DOZENS of these cuties! We had a guide on the boat who told us about the area, and about the puffins - he was excellent. LOVED this tour and would do it again!

This attraction is essential for any tour of Iceland. In a country not known for its warmth - interpersonal or climatic - the staff of the tour enhanced the powerful experience. The 2 mile walk to the volcano was paced to make all participants comfortable and the charming guide kept it interesting. And the trip into the volcano is all once could ask for a tourist attraction.
