Iceland Volcano Tours: 3H Travel Leads Visitors Into Volcano (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

In spite of Iceland's recent history with eruptions (Remember Eyjafjallajokull and even Grimsvotn?) adventure company 3H Travel has decided it's high time to lead expeditions into the country's volcanoes.

The company, lead by mountaineers, will start leading tours into the Thrihnukagigur volcano, located southeast of Reykjavik next month. The volcano, which has been dormant for some 4,000 years, sits inside Bláfjöll Country Park.

3H Travel will lead five- to six-hour-long tours beginning June 15, for just longer than a month. Visitors, who will pay roughly $295 for the experience, will spend 40 minutes walking to the tip of the crater and then 10 minutes descending the 400 feet into the volcano. The rest of the expedition will focus on exploring the nuances of a dormant volcano.

Check out photos from inside the volcano below.
