Detailed description

The dormant Thrihnukagigur volcano is a unique natural phenomenon. By setting up the necessary gear and equipment, we’ve created a tour that opens the door to a new world.

It really isn’t that complicated to experience it. All you need is the willingness to do a moderate 45–50 minute hike (to get to the crater) and the guts to descend 120 meters/400 feet to the bottom of the crater in an open cable lift.

Good (hiking) shoes – if you have them. We don’t recommend sneakers, they will definitely get dirty and may get punctures.
Outdoor clothing. The weather in the mountains can be very different to the city. A warm sweater and jacket are very useful, not least because it’s always the same temperature inside the crater – about 5–6°C (42–43°F). That’s cold!
A camera. You will want to remember this trip. Yes, you can take as many pictures as you want!
A good spirit. This tour is all about having fun.
