Inside the Thrihnukagigur Volcano: Day Trip from Reykjavik

1. Inside the Thrihnukagigur Volcano: Day Trip from Reykjavik

Enjoy a hiking tour towards the dormant Thrihnukagigur Volcano. After your transfer and drop-off at the Bláfjöll mountain cabin, walk to Thrihnukagigur Volcano, a moderate hike of approximately 45-50 minutes, enjoying the breathtaking lava scenery en route. The hike is classified as moderately difficulty, with straight walks and limited elevations. But the surface is hilly and uneven. Upon arrival at the crater, descend 400 feet (120 meters) inside the volcano, and experience an extraordinary natural phenomenon. You will be informed about all safety procedures and how to behave inside the volcano, wearing a helmet and harness at all times. Each group is split into a smaller party of 4-5 people for safety and intimacy. After a slow 10-minute descent, to ensure the safety of passengers and provide ample opportunities to experience the amazing views, spend up to an hour inside the volcano (or less if you prefer). Expert guides will be with you at all times. End with a feast of traditional Icelandic meat soup or a vegetarian soup along with hot coffee, hot chocolate, tea or water.

The not so low price for this experience should not play a role in the decision. Here is a fabulous opportunity to marvel at nature in its origins. It starts with the "trek" to the base camp, from where it goes to the crater. From here the unique, almost devotional experience takes its course. With every meter of depth, the admiration for nature increases. An insight into the origin, development and pure force of nature within reach.

So beautiful. The volcano has such magnificent colours. We also had a very windy wet walk up to the volcano but the guides were excellent and gave us long oilskin coats to battle away the worst of it. If you think the weather will be bad then wear boots for the walk. Inside the volcano it’s very calm.

A huge and unique experience. With professional staff to ensure a good experience and safety when going down into the large volcanic crater.

Absolutely loved the descent into the volcano. An experience you can’t get anywhere else. The coloring inside is amazing!

Perfectly organized! Great guides (friendly, helpful). Have everything you need to know about the volcano tell!
