We really enjoyed this activity - very well organised and we were looked after all the way through by our fantastic guide Elsa. If you're worried about it being cold, so long as you wear extra socks and a thermal base layer you don't feel it on your body; your hands and face do get cold, but you warm up quickly with the hot chocolate they provide afterward. You also get changed in a trailer not in the open car park which is what we thought!! Elsa took loads of Gopro photos & sent them by the end of the day for us to download so we have loads of memories. A really great experience, and thoroughly recommended.

Adam is a gem! we were very lucky cause we ended up having a private tour since we were only in two. the car is great, the tour itself also. Adam went above and beyond. showed us extra places, left us alone where needed or assisted with very useful information where needed. He is very knowledgeable and explained how to spot and find the Northern lights. if you really want to know about volcanoes in the area ask about those too! highly recommend this tour. it was a perfect day!

Det var en fantastisk tur. Guiden vår, Gulli, var fra Island og hadde mye kunnskap om Island som han delte med oss. Vi fikk mange flotte stopp og en sang på islandsk. Da vi kom fram fram til Silfra sto Kevin og ventet på oss. Han var flink til å forberede oss til snorkling. Vannet i Silfra er utrolig klart og sikten var fantastisk. Og vannet var 2 grader, men ikke kaldt når vi hadde tørrdrakt på. Det var en helt utrolig opplevelse og må bare oppleves.

We loved this trip. Did the snorkeling first, and enjoyed every moment, got some great pictures. Anna was fantastic, then we se off for the geyser and waterfall. All great. Troll adventures were amazing throughout the morning.

Adam was a fantastic guide, was very easy to deal with and communicated quickly to change the time of the trip in order to have a better Northern Lights experience. He was very knowledgeable and helpful.
