Ever wondered what a volcano looks like on the inside? This unique volcano tour, takes you literally inside a dormant volcano, through the top crater and to the bottom of its magma chamber, once filled with steaming hot lava.

By putting up the necessary gear and equipment, we´ve created a tour that opens the door to a new world. And it really isn´t that complicated to experience it, only a moderate 45-50 min. hike to the crater and then the guts to descend 120 meters/400 ft to the bottom of the crater in an open cable lift.
