“JOURNEY towards the
center of the earth”
“Descend 120 meters into a volcano that erupted 4,000 years ago.”
Experience “Inside The Volcano” With Us:
Watch as we travel across Iceland Terrain to a dormant volcano and actually go down into it and explore!
Iceland is known as “one of the most active volcanic regions in the world“. Because of Iceland’s location and the moving plates of the Eurasia and North America (A.K.A. – The Mid-Atlantic Ridge), the earth’s crust is continually moving apart. This causes around 3-4 volcanic eruptions a year. The volcano we happened to visit sits right in the middle of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge!
The name of the volcano we descended down is Þríhnúkagígur or “Three Peaks Crater” (one of which we actually descend down during the tour, which you will see from the video linked above!). While it was dormant, it is still an amazing phenomenon to experience. It’s last eruption was over 4,000 years ago.
While this tour is on the pricey-er side, it is definitely a once in a life-time experience! We highly suggest considering spending the extra bucks on this one. How often do you get to trek across a place so unique on the planet and then descend down a dormant volcano around for over 4000 years?
