Volcano in Iceland to open for midnight tours

Tour operators of the Thrihnukagigur volcano in Iceland have announced that they will be extending the visiting hours to the volcano during the summer months of this year. Visitors to the volcano, which has been dormant for 4,000 years, will now be able to tour the inside of Thrihnukagigur during the night-time, starting from late June.

Visitors flying to Iceland to take part in the new excursions will be lowered into the rock giant and then taken on a tour of its magma chambers. Tourists will be lowered in using a cable lift, which carries guests 120 metres down into the volcano from a small opening in the summit.Inside Thrihnukagigur
Tour operators have extended this year’s excursion schedule up until September, two months more than last year, with tours only running in June and July in 2012. Nine extra days will also be added later this month offering special after-hour descents, which allow guest to see the volcano during the long hours of midnight sun.

Visitors to the Icelandic volcano will be able to see the bright colours inside the caves of Thrihnukagigur that are created from magma solidifying on the walls inside, instead of cooling into hard lava on the outside of the volcano. Located in the protected area of Bláfjöll Country Park, the volcano is one of the few safe-to-visit volcanic sites in the country.

Tour of Thrihnukagigur

Tours of the Thrihnukagigur volcano start from 37,000 Icelandic kroner, around £197. Lasting 45 minutes in total, tours to this exciting volcano are a must for anybody in Iceland during the summer months.
