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

This was a great tour! It was a 3km hike in over amazing landscape and then, 3km back. Follow the clothing guidelines. They provide excellent rain coats, but your lower legs and feet can get soaked, so solid water proof hiking boots and pants were...More

This unique experience to get the opportunity to go inside a volcano and experience all the rock formations and color is something that everyone visiting Iceland should experience. The walk of about 3km to get to the staging area is a nice hike and the...More

It was my partner’s 40th birthday and this trip was a part of my birthday present to him. We are Icelanders, living in Reykjavik which is only about 20 minutes away from the volcano, but we decided to be tourists in our own “backyard”. We...More

It is a 2+ mile hike which is relatively flat until you get near the volcano when it is uphill. They provide raincoats if it is raining. Would recommend waterproof pants if raining or chilly since the wind is more severe there as well as...More

It was an amazing experience and well worth the 3km hike across the lava field to get to basecamp. We happened to take a tour when the weather was rainy and very windy, making the 3 km hike "exciting." The tour is well organized with...More

Into the Volcano is a great trip. The whole experience is well managed culminating in the 30 mins spent inside the volcano chamber. The colours and the shapes of the rocks are spellbinding. The walk to the volcano was in very poor weather but otherwise...More

This tour was definitely the best tour I have been on during any of my travels! It was spectacular! That said, I did study geology in grad school so I may be a bit bias. However, the sites within the volcano should appeal to everyone....More
