Inside the Volcano
A Journey towards the Center of the Earth
Enter Þríhnúkagígur volcano and descend into the only accessible lava chamber on planet Earth. What awaits you down there is truly magnificent.
The volcano’s name Þríhnúkagígur, mostly unpronounceable for anyone other than locals, would be directly translated as ‘Three Peaks Crater’. No worries, it is safely dormant and has been for over 4.000 years.
Amazing group of people are there for you. The guides who walk with you to and from the volcano have an undying passion for nature and people. The guides that take you down into the volcano are all heavily experienced mountaineers, many still part of the Icelandic wilderness rescue squads. Quite strong minds. The base camp guides welcome you with the best lamb soup there is and together with the rest of the crew they will immediately make you feel right at home.
