Sjáumst Síðar Iceland

After 14 days that included 150 km of walking/hiking, stops at countless waterfalls, almost 3000 km of riding in a super jeep and taking almost ten thousand photographs between the four of us, this is the last post in our series about Iceland in which we share a bunch of "stuff" on food & drink, geocaching in Iceland, getting around, and our top picks for day hikes.

Iceland Adventure: Inside a Volcano

There aren't many places on earth where an admission fee plus a short walk gets you access to an open cable lift that carries you 120 meters down into the heart of a dormant volcano. In fact, we're aware of only one such place: Thrihnukagigur volcano, located in the Bláfjöll mountains, a 30 minute drive from Reykjavík. As half-day outings go, this one's pretty costly at about C$400 per person. But what an adventure!
