Yes, truly. Jacada Travel, the luxury tour operator, offers extremely customizable helicopter tours through Iceland that lets you eat in the Thrihnukagigur volcano's magma chamber. (Don't worry, the volcano is dormant.) You can also have dinner atop a glacier, if hot magma ain't your thing. FWIW, they also offer other crazy experiences, like seeing an opera performance in a volcano and dining under the statue of David in Florence. Casual.
