We took the walking option. You walk ankle deep in volcanic ash, and then over the weathered lava field (large rocks and boulders, mostly). Then you climb a volcano, on ash andgravel, which is difficult. On top of it you can make a round on the crest of the crater. Finally, the highlight of the tour - descent. You won't believe it but you can actually run down the slope safely (if you master the pace, that is) :) It is funny and exhilarating experience! While aback at teh foot of the volcano you pay a small tax to a local guardian. Then you continue on volcanic ash after you reach a lava-flooded church (or what's left of it).
The whole trip takes ca. 6 hours (on foot, also horseride option available), you need a guide (they usually spot you in the street, or just ask anyone), and remember - although the volcano has mere 800 m of climbing altitude, it's also 2800 m above sea level! Proceed with caution.
