Great guides. Are always up for fun. Only Getyourguide does not mention anything about the rules of the providers or not participating due to previous illnesses, which I find extremely bad when booking rather ask the organizer. But unfortunately it is also difficult to find out because there is no mention of any organizer.

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.

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.
