A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to descend into an (inactive) volcano’s inner chamber!

You’ve seen what lava can do to a landscape, now delve into where it all comes from. The Thrihnukagigur Volcano is the world’s only volcano where you can enter the magma chamber. The thrill of descending into its dark depths still comes from the feeling of imminent danger, but you can rest easy as you’re safe to roam around the now-dormant volcano. Travel companies like 3H-Travel lead tours of Thrihnukagigur called “Inside the Volcano.” The course to the “center of the earth” begins in an elevator that drops into the cavern. The 400-feet trip down is a true test of grit. Your reward: a once in a lifetime experience in the heart of a volcano. Shining a light on the rocks reveal colorful stone walls that envelop you, save for a little crevice where the elevator and a little sunlight break through.

A friend told me about this volcano. It seems straight out otherworldly and amazing! Due to its rich sulfur content the electric-blue fires can be seen at night. Apparently the entire area smells a bit of rotten eggs. Don’t care. Let me go! Last eruption: 1999

It worth the sweat when you climb at 4am to see this amazing view. A guide is a must, the trek is dangerous in the dark. I'm having a short of breath while climbing and become frustrated (not really fit). It cold up there. A warm jacket is necessary. You need to climb down to see the blue fire. And wear a gas mask cause the sulphur smell.
