We went INSIDE a volcano! What an amazing experience. Yes, it is a little pricey, but there is no where else on earth you can actually go down into a volcano magma chamber. This was one of the highlights of our trip to Iceland. Even...More

This tour costs $40,000 ISK or so. Basically, you get a lift to the track, walk about 3k to the volcano, take an elevator down and then have 30 minutes below ground. You don’t really see much more than in a decent cave.

It's not every day that you get to go inside a volcano! Echoing previous reviews, the weather was rainy and windy but raincoats available. The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. A delicious lamb soup was served. Highly recommended!

This was a great (albeit expensive) tour. I enjoyed the hike to the volcano, but prepared for inclement weather. We were also served delicious lamb soup after the trip down into the volcano. Definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

It's exactly what it says and if you really want to do it, you should do it. Where else would you get to go 400' down into a volcano? And yes, it costs more than you think it should. There is a mild guided hike...More

I can't imagine the tickets are ever on sale. I understand it is so expensive due to it being taken down and set up each time during the warmer months. It is so costly as the elevator that goes down and the bridge to get to... More

Flash could be used but I wouldn't recommend it as it will create a lot of shadows. I brought a tripod instead which worked fairly well (so you can do longer exposures) - this can also be done with a person but of course the... More
