    The hike wasn’t too bad difficulty wise but the view of the volcano was so worth it.

    Amazing Experience - Highly Recommended
    Stephan_U, Sep 2023
    Our guide, Haffi, lives in the town at the base of the lava fields from the last three eruptions and knows the area extremely well. He was early for the pick up at our hotel and along the way, explained different hikes we could take based on our fitness level as well as the history of the area and the historic and recent eruptions. We took the more strenuous because it offered the closest proximity to the lava field, which was from the 2021 eruption, but still steaming in parts and similar to a black desert/moonscape. Round trip the hike was a little over 5 miles, very steep and loose rocks/gravel over portions, good hiking shoes are needed. Well worth the effort, an incredibly unique experience, with an excellent guide. Money well spent. There is no way we would have had the same experience climbing the volcano on our own. On the way back to Reykjavilk, we stopped in this geothermal field that is a regional or national park. Various bubbling pots of boiling water and stream raising from the ground just off the fairly long boardwalk. Super cool, but no railings so be careful with the kids!

    We loved our tour with Sigrún. She was so friendly, knowledgeable, easy going. She taught us lots about the area and volcanos. We loved her personal touch of bringing hot chocolate for us when we reached the top. It was an awesome hike. Loved her as our guide.

    Glad I bought wind breaking clothes
    Erin_D, Mar 2023
    We originally booked this for our parents, as they are older and we thought a guided hike would be more their speed. However, they didn’t end up coming on the trip. Honestly, it was probably for the better that they didn’t do this hike. While our guide was fantastic (and reminded us to slow down and take our time), the hike was challenging due to uneven ground and high winds. It was unreal and unlike any other place I visited. The lava fields were crazy and she did a great job of helping us visualize what it was like when the volcano was erupting. I loved the experience. Could I have done this without a guide? Yes. But I would have missed out on the stories and probably would have missed some landmarks and such. It was guide pricey, but overall I’m glad for the experience.
    Response from Host, Mar 2023

He was one such a great guide and guy and made us instantly feel comfortable and welcomed! This had to be one of our favourite and most memorable experiences on our trip!

    Justin_J, Dec 2022
    Rare experience to trek up close and personal on a volcano. Gudni and Hulta were amazing. Took their time and no rush at all. The trek was not easy but it was a wonderful experience. The patience of the guide made it even more memorable. Definitely recommend this private hike.

    Bucket List Tour
    Kate_B, Nov 2022
    What an amazing experience! This is the BEST tour my husband and I did in Iceland. We did the tour with the pick up in Reykjavik and Guðni, our guide, was there, ready to go at our pick up location 10 minutes early! Guðni was INCREDIBLE. He guided us up the volcano at our pace, stopping at the best locations to take in the breathtaking views and take pictures of us. He is very nice, knowledgeable, and answered all our questions. The volcano was amazing. Though it is not currently erupting, it is still active which is awesome to see in person. It is 100% worth every penny and was one of the BEST tours we have ever done in all our travels! Thanks to Guðni for a great tour!!!!
    Response from Host, Nov 2022
    Dear Kate, We are delighted to read this review, and Gudni sends you a big THANK YOU. It is great to hear about your experience on tour with him, and sharing this with more people ensures that they also know about our company. We look forward to showing you more. All the best,
