Only one word for this one, Excellent! My fist trip in Iceland and it did not disappoint. The guide was fantastic and views, exhilarating. Highly recommend! Got great pics too which is always a bonus.
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
Most wonderful unique experience. Would recommend to everyone.
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
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.
