Inside the Volcano

The dormant Thrihnukagigur volcano is a unique natural phenomenon. By setting up the necessary gear and equipment, we’ve created a tour that opens the door to a new world.

It really isn’t that complicated to experience it. All you need is the willingness to do a moderate 45–50 minute hike (to get to the crater) and the guts to descend 120 meters/400 feet to the bottom of the crater in an open cable lift.


Duration: 5–6 hours (about 35-40 minutes inside the volcano).

Departure: Several departures every day.  Pick up at hotels and guesthouses 30 minutes prior to departure. 

Difficulty: Moderate.

Operation:  From May 10th – October 15th

Included:  Bus transfer, all safety gear, helmets, harnesses, etc.

Traditional Icelandic meat soup, coffee/tea and perhaps some sweets as well. Vegetarians will have alternatives.

Small groups, plenty of guides = personal experience.

Volcano tour of a lifetime.

Bring with you: Good (hiking) shoes – if you have them. We don’t recommend sneakers, they will definitely get dirty and may get punctures.

Outdoor clothing. The weather in the mountains can be very different to the city. A warm sweater and jacket are very useful, not least because it’s always the same temperature inside the crater – about 5–6°C (42–43°F). That’s cold!

A camera. You will want to remember this trip. Yes, you can take as many pictures as you want!

A good spirit. This tour is all about having fun

Minimum age: 12 years (we can and have made exceptions on the age. Contact us if you want to convince us that your kid is up for adventure).
