Inside the volcano - Entrance
Reykjavik

One of the amazing experiences you can have in Iceland is to actually go inside of a volcano. During this excursion, you go 120 meters down into a magna chamber of a volcano that erupted 4,000 years ago. Being in the magna chamber itself is breathtaking and the trip to the volcano is equaly a great experience. To go down into the volcano, you first walk about 3km/2 miles across lava fields, an experience in its own right. You then descent into the volcano in an open lift with only 6 spaces similar to the ones used by window cleaners. The trip 120m down to the bottom of the volcano takes about 7-8 minutes.

In this panorama, you can see the entrance of the volcano and a group of visitors coming up from the depths of the magna chamber. The entrance also provides a beautiful view of the surroundings, including lava fields, some snow and a view of Reykjavik in the distance.

Also check out the two panoramas inside the Volcano here and here as well as the walk itself here.

More About Reykjavik

A nature paradise complete with icecap, glaciers, geysers, volcanoes, and waterfalls, the climate is surprisingly mild (considering its northerly latitude) thanks to the Gulf Stream. Iceland boasts a modern infrastructure – in fact, it’s just over 300,000 residents enjoy what is one of the most developed and egalitarian societies on the planet, where most of the energy is provided by renewable sources and virtually all of the electricity is generated from hydropower and geothermal energy.
