The experience was exceptional. The slingshot car was providing quite high adrenaline sport drive feeling. The views of the surrounding volcanic landscape were mesmerizing, the beach and the green lake were nice highlights too. The guide Jonas was very helpful, fun and positive. The whole trip was well organized, even the manager came to talk to us when they found out we are from the same country :) We will definitely do it again on our next trip. Thank you Jonas and Moni :)
