But here is one of their most favorite songs, Way Down We Go. The video is taken in a beautiful cave, Thríhnjúkar, which are located in a volcano! It has been designing equipment for tourists to see it and it is very popular to get there. It´s so large and you need to take lift to the bottom of the cave. It is very difficult to explain the feeling when you are there. But for sure you are in a little wonderland there with few people, a little bit like you are alone on the planet.
