Flights to Iceland and volcano magma chamber tours with Icelandair U.S.

Wed, 23 May 2012 08:49:37 EST

Those looking to book flights to Iceland this summer now have the opportunity to experience a once-in-a-lifetime volcano tour, whereby visitors get to explore the interior of Thrihnukagigur, a volcano that has been dormant for roughly 4,000 years.
 
The Thrihnukagigur volcano is the only place on earth where the magma chamber is accessible and currently safe to explore. The size of its chamber is enormous; the ground space is equivalent to almost three full-sized basketball courts. The distance from top to bottom is about 150 meters (450 ft.).
 
The site is only 25 minutes' drive from the capital Reykjavík, but once there visitors must trek for 40 minutes across a lava field to reach the volcano's summit. They will then take an open cable lift 120 metres down to the bottom of the crater before beginning the hour-long tour with a team of expert guides.

The tour will be operated from June 15 to July 31 with several confirmed departures each day during that period. The tour is operated in small groups and takes approximately 5-6 hours to complete, including up to one hour inside the volcano.

Icelandair, Iceland's leading airline, is giving its U.S passengers the opportunity to book the volcano tour as an add-on option for any of the airline's current package deals.

A selection of Icelandair's package deals can be found here, and for more information regarding the volcano tour as an add-on option, click here.

The volcano tour is in-conjunction with www.insidethevolcano.com.

Please note that passengers should be in reasonable physical shape for this tour as moderate walking on unpaved surface required.
