What people are saying about Reykjanes Peninsula

We never do tours but the idea of a small group being led by an actual geologist caught our attention, and I honestly cannot praise this experience enough! Don’t get me wrong, seeing an active volcano is amazing but having a volcanologist guiding you through what you are seeing is next level! Jasmine is so informative & knowledgable. She spent time individually with each member of our group to answer our questions, giving a truly personal experience. Without her expertise we would’ve missed out on so much. We came away with a new found fascination for volcanos.

Frank was an awesome guide and I hope to have him the next time I visit Iceland! Unfortunately, we weren’t able to see the lights but he and the driver were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, and gave it all they could to show us the lights. They certainly made the best of the situation and made it a fun adventure!

Very well organised… very fortunate to see the lights… extremely cold hot drinks available to warm up… didn’t wait long for the lights to appear was amazing.. and brilliant to have professional photos… even more amazing as daughter partner proposed with lights in background

The experience is very cool. The professionals who accompany you do their best to ensure that you live a beautiful and unique experience. I regretted not having booked to go see them another time, one is not enough. Thanks.

Frank, our guide, was a great storyteller and knew exactly where to go. We arrived to a park with nobody else and saw the lights. Later, several other busses arrived—we’d found the best spot!
