Brilliant day hiking! There is an option to carry on the walk for those that are keen. We did this whilst others went back to the bus. We just had to be back at the carpark to meet them at 3pm. Volcano has stopped erupting now so no glowing lava, but it was a great hike to see black lava that is still steaming. Very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide who gave us chocolate at the top. Would definitely recommend this tour.

Siggy was very knowledgeable and upbeat during a physically demanding 12 km hike. He engaged all group members and connected on a personal level regardless of nationality. Siggy was safety conscious and assisted in the descent where I could not do so myself due to physical limitation.

This tour activity was like, um, super fun. Holy crapola, I was like yeeehaaaaw during the hike, because it was soooooooo fun.

We had amazing weather and our tour guide was so lovely. Definitely worth the hike for some glorious views.

Wonderful hike by our guide Cora, we had the best time!
