Thrihnukagigur Lava Tunnel Tour
Do you dare to enter inside the magma chamber of a volcano? Delve deep into Thrihnukagigur and explore the lava tunnels coursing through it on this tour from Reykjavik.
Thrihnukagigur Lava Tunnel
After meeting your guide at the selected meeting point, you'll climb aboard a bus and head to the southeast of Reykjavik. Following a half an hour drive, you'll arrive at the Thrihnukagigur Volcano.
Get kitted out with all the equipment you need to safely enjoy this unique activity, then, with your helmet and harness on, you'll begin your 1.8 mile (3 km) hike to the volcano crater.
Climb onto the special open elevator for the descent into the volcano and marvel at the striking colours of the dramatic rocky walls of the cave as you're lowered almost 400 feet (120 metres) to the bottom. Thrihnukagigur lava tunnel awaits you!
Explore the magma chamber of the volcano, which last erupted 4000 years ago. Did you know that this cave is so tall, it could fit the Statue of Liberty inside? Its sheer size will leave you speechless!
At the end of your tour of Thrihnukagigur lava tunnel, you'll return to the surface for the return journey to your original departure point in Reykjavik, where you'll arrive 5 hours after the start of the activity.
When you make your reservation, you'll be asked at which hotel in Reykjavik you're staying. You'll be directed to the meeting point closest to your hotel.
