What people are saying about Reykjanes Peninsula

The volcano is absolutely boring with just black stones. But 5 star rate is for guide's suggestion about "today is a very very very good day to watch the northern light". Then I ordered the tour for aururo that night, even though it is a rainy day. However, the aurura is truly show up, and it is so strong and beautiful!!! So lucky to meet this guide and get right suggestions from him. Thank him.

Our guide Björk was great, she explained a lot and provided important information. The tour into the Geldingadalir valley was great. It was amazing to see the huge lava fields that were still smoking from the heat. The Northern Lights Tour could not take place that evening due to the weather and was postponed

We had 5 adults hiking and pick up was very prompt. The van was comfortable and the hike was moderately difficult. Our guide kept track of us and made safety recommendations and also helped us with pics of the group. It made the hike very relaxed and fun. The lava field was our favorite part.

Well organized tour, impressive volcano, our guide Vjeran available and prepared. Great experience!

Nice hike along the volcano crater and good value for money.
