 One of last year’s most popular tourist attractions, the Thrihnukagigur Volcano in Iceland, is set to reopen again this year. From 15th May, the tours which are entitled “Inside the Volcano’ will offer visitors the chance to see just what a volcano looks like from the inside of a magma chamber.

Thrihnukagigur Volcano is 20 miles from Iceland’s capital Reykjavic, and as it is dormant, it is currently the only place on the planet where it is safe to explore the huge magma chamber. And huge it most certainly is, around the size of three full size basketball courts and you could fit the Statue of Liberty in there!

To enter, visitors descend through the top crater, all the way down to the magma chamber and are to be accompanied by experienced and special trained guides. A cable lift will carry participants up and down the chamber.
This has to be an amazing opportunity for volcanologists or anyone with an interest in the magnificent and natural wonders of the world.
The tour will run from 15th May – 10th September, with several confirmed departures each day.
