Fantastic experience! It was very cold (-18'C) but the Troll team did a great job getting us all kitted out as quickly as possible. They recommended at least 2prs of socks but there is plenty of room in the dry suit boots. After Juan's safety brief and geology lesson we needed hot water to melt the ice out of our masks and got in the water ASAP. Juan was right about many things; look around above the water as well as below, turn on your side to see under the surface, your hands do warm up inside the gloves and he took great pictures. The drysuits did a great job keeping us warm, although they had started to freeze before we walked back to the trucks. The team worked hard to get us out of the frozen suits. I loved every moment of the trip.

As a 50+ woman never having snorkelled before, let alone in Iceland in December, I was very apprehensive but this turned out to be the most amazing experience of a lifetime and once suited up I didn’t even feel the cold! Luce was an amazing guide and talked us through each step patiently.

This was an awesome experience! Our tour guide Juan was great & very funny. My husband & I & our 2 teens had an experience of a lifetime! Thank you to the entire Troll team.

the guide is really patient. the underwater is so clear and amazing when the light shines through. the water is drinkable which is really cool.

Amazing experience and one you will never forget, Andreas was a fantastic guide and really knowledgable
