This is a unique experience. The biggest surprise was how colorful the magma chamber is. They have a small selection of unique souvenirs in the "Base Camp", so bring your credit card if you want a T-shirt to prove that you have entered a volcano.

Very windy and cold on the hike to the Volcano but it was worth it. Optional, complementry rain coat helps a lot. The volcano itself was astonishing...then the soup (plus tea and coffee) at the hut before the hike back was great.

Great for people who like "out of the ordinary"-- hiking through a lava field to a volcano then descending down into it. Not a hard hike at all, just uneven ground. Bring warm and rainproof clothes even if it's nice out as you're hiking to...More

You can drive to the location. Just make sure you wear great hiking shoes. The Volcanic rocks can be challenging both on the way to the volcano and inside.
