Look down onto volcanoes from the sky during a helicopter flight, then journey inside the crater of a volcano during a caving trip!

Departing from Reykjavik, take to the air and fly over Iceland's incredible volcanic landscapes. Enjoy unbeatable views of volcanic craters on your way to the Thrihnukagigur ("three craters") volcano. Your pilot will take you to one of the three craters where an expert guide will be waiting to lead you on an Icelandic underground adventure. Once you're kitted out with the necessary safety equipment, you'll be ready to embark on a trip down into the depths of the crater to experience the beauty and immensity of this natural wonder!

At the end of your expedition, you will get back into the helicopter for the return journey back to Reykjavik.
