  1. You had me at “lowering tourists into a volcano” and then almost immediately lost me at “extinct”.

    Hi Maggie,

    I was at Þhrihnukagigur this summer and if a: you’re in Iceland, b: don’t mind a long hike out to the volcano itself, c: really don’t mind heights (it’s 140m straight down into the chamber), and d: feeling rich (it’s about $350 per person), it is one of the most amazing things you can do in a country full of amazing things to do.

    The colours in the documentary aren’t enhanced at all, it is utterly surreal, very quiet, enormous and very, very beautiful. Even as a cynical old geologist I was grinning like a lunatic being able to see the plumbing of a cinder cone.

    The volcano is only accessible in the summer, so you all have a bit of time to save up. But do go if you get a chance.
