Amazing! 5/5 Expedia Guest Rating

Enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience: Explore the natural wonder of a sleeping volcano. Admire the moon-like landscape outside before wandering inside its open crater and descending into the magma chamber.

After a short drive from Reykjavík, arrive at the mountain's foothills. Here, your real adventure begins, with a hike to the base of the volcano. Keep your eyes peeled so you don't miss any of the truly breathtaking scenery before you.

The dormant Þríhnúkagígur volcano is a unique natural phenomenon. Once you arrive at the top of the crater, you have the opportunity to enjoy an unparalleled view of Reykjavík. Then your mountain guide gives you a safety briefing before you descend the crater – an approximately 400-foot (120 m) descent aboard an open lift that holds up to 6 people.

Snap as many pictures as you wish and learn key details about the natural wonders of the place before heading back up and returning to the above-ground world.
