This was a great Icelandic adventure. The wind was blowing, the rain was pelting, but the staff was prepared for everything. inside the volcano the conditions were dry and comfortable, and one of those "can you believe where we are" type experiences. Plus the hot chocolate and stew were especially welcome on a day like we had.

A bracing trek across the lava field chatting to the friendly and informative guide was followed by the most breathtaking experience of a holiday packed with natural beauty. The volcano is unique because of its small aperture (apparently the lava drained away to an adjacent fissure before blowing the whole lid off). The way in via a winch is an adventure in itself. Once inside I found the lava chamber awe inspiring in scale and atmosphere. Imagine a giant organic cathedral. It's not a cheap excursion but if you can stretch to it you will have no regrets.

Incredible. You're inside the magma chamber of a volcano. Need I say more? Even the hike and the landscape was stunning. I highly recommend it. The entire experience was well worth it in my opinion.
