    The Iceland is a land of volcanoes, the landscape is a witness, so we decided to do this hike. The previous reviews speak of organized tours and closed gate. In fact the entrance there is an information desk where you can book the visit, in the summer time is anytime: we arrived at 13.40 and we made a visit to 14. The guided tour lasts 90 minutes, recommend warm clothing because you get to 0° and perhaps gloves. The helmet flashlight provide it. Each group has two guides, one at the head and one in the tail, the route is feasible and affordable for everyone (there is a single very narrow and low), the rooms are spacious and are illuminated by some lights. The guide (in English) are very experienced. Ours was very friendly and very attentive (Geologist), prepared. Truly a great experience that I recommend to everyone.
