About this deal

The three craters (one of which you will be descending into) are prominent landmarks, standing against the sky on the highland edge, about 20 km (13 miles) southeast of the capital area, within the protected area of Bláfjöll Country Park. Why is everyone so gung-ho certain that the boys should go on this “expedition” that they're told is done for all the tourists but seems to mask a sinister plan. The Thrihnukagigur volcano is reached via an hour-long walk and entered by way of an open cable lift, a descent of 120 metres. A helicopter – piloted by our adventurous guest and a local pilot – was then used to sling-load all of the gear to the basecamp site deep inside a crater surrounded by cliffs towering up to 800ft above camp. It worked like a charm and since 2012 people are now able to go inside the volcano to experience mother nature in all its magnificent grace.

Vivi and Seb’s journey is nothing less than death defying but they are driven by a unified desire to heal the tragedy that has fallen upon them both. Kate Humble joins a team of geologists on a journey right to the heart of one of the most active volcanoes in the world. Take a look at the inside the Thrihnukagigur volcano on this unique excursion, only available during a short period in the summer, that takes you literally inside a dormant volcano. For years they went down, in ropes, hanging in their harnesses with headlamps, slings and belay devices. They are sent on an expedition that take them on a wild boat ride straight into an errupting volcano.Many seem very excited by the artwork in Into the Volcano, how each image has been carefully crafted (as opposed to the mass market comic, they say). Because the weather was very windy, it was especially important for us to know that we had to take extra caution. The hike is challenging and not advisable for unfit persons or people with reduced physical abilities. It’s mostly due to its location on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where the Eurasian and North American plates are moving apart – and therefore literally opening the earth’s crust.

The name is directly translated as "Three Peaks Crater", participants descend into one of these craters for an unforgettable experience, chosen by CNN travel as one of the must-see places in the world!

Our tours are split into four different categories that help participants to understand what to expect from the tour.

The peak you will enter is a small cinder cone, standing about 35 m (100 ft ) higher than its surroundings. Inside the volcano tour literally takes you into the volcano, through the top crater and right to the bottom of its magma chamber where molten magma flowed during an eruption 4. Expert guides will be with you at all times, in the cable lift and on the ground in the magma chamber. Once your descent down the chamber is complete, your guide will let you out of the elevator, and you can explore for half an hour on the ground of the volcano.

There’s a weight and a breadth to his art that we just haven’t seen in graphic novels for young readers before. Jeans are not suitable clothing; waterproof jacket, sturdy and waterproof outdoor shoes and a warm sweater are highly recommended. To discover whether another devastating eruption might happen, the team needs to collect a lava bomb the minute it is hurled from the crater. If you choose to meet us on location, then we will meet you at Blue Mountains’ parking lot (Bláfjöll parking). There is talk the boys don’t understand, which is alarming to Sumo who is the much more cautious and suspicious of the two.
