the inside of a volcano

Brennisteinsfjöll, Iceland

Think you’ve explored every inch of the world? You’ve only scratched the surface. We get under the earth’s skin in the land of ice and fire. It starts with a hike or a helicopter ride up to the crater of the incredible Þríhnjúkagígur volcano. Here, you’ll need to stop for a moment to catch your breath because the surrounding views are nothing if not breathtaking. Once you’re ready, a cable lift will lower you into the 213 meter-deep magma chamber. The dazzling colors of this unique geographical marvel cannot be captured in a photograph or even a canvas – you just have to see them for yourself before returning to the surface for a bowl of traditional Icelandic soup or a cup of hot chocolate.
