Part of the tour got cancelled because of what is going on in Grindavik but Bus Tours Iceland offered an alternative which was similar and we still managed to do part of the Reykjanes hiking tour. Dave and Ragnar were great guides and despite the changes, they still made the tour very enjoyable while taking our safety into consideration. I enjoyed the commentary on the various places we went to and learnt a lot about Iceland and the Reykjanes Peninsula. The hike, while shorter than originally planned, still included seeing the lava fields and seeing the eruption sites (from a distance) and while challenging due to the high winds and mud, was definitely worth it to see the views. Also, thank you Jeff for being a great mascot.

Part of the tour had to be cancelled due to the eruption the week before but the guide and the remaining part of the tour were excellent. Karol and Ragnar were great, funny and entertaining whilst giving lots of interesting information. The hike up to the lava field required a reasonable level of fitness and some decent boots. The tour provided crampons but we didn’t actually need them. All in all a great experience for a family with two teenagers.

Transport was a comfortable bus. A small group is also a plus. The guide was fantastic. He showed everything and talked about it nicely. In addition to climbing to the viewpoint of the volcano, there were many photo stops, so the trip was very successful and worth the price. I sincerely recommend it

It was a great trek to see the recent volcanoes that had erupted. There should be more guides to do each of the routes available on the tour, as some people would like to walk all of it. I would have liked to have done the furtherest route.

Dave and Ragnar were excellent guides. Informative and funny. We had a great adventure with them and well worth the money
