Inside the Volcano Adventure


This unique volcano tour literally takes you inside a dormant volcano, through the top crater and to the bottom of its magma chamber where molten magma flowed during an eruption.

Reached via an hour long hike and entered by way of an open cable lift, a descent of 120 metres, the ground space inside the volcano is equivalent in size to around three basketball courts, and the cavity could easily fit the Statue of Liberty.

Following an eruption magma chambers usually collapse, but in Þríhnúkagígur the lava drained out like water from a pipe leaving the volcano's plumbing system empty. The Þríhnúkagígur crater is therefore one few places in the world where you can enter a magma chamber.


This tour costs £295.00 per person, unfortunately no children under 13 allowed

This tour operates daily between 15th May & 15th October and takes between 5 & 6 hours


This is a profession guided coach tour with decent into a volcano with all safety equipment into helmets & harness

Please Note

You’ll need to wear proper walking/hiking shoes - about 2.5 km each way & warm clothes - trainers and jeans is not sufficient
