We were on that tour with our guide, Sindri. So besides lots of pictures of breathtaking nature, we have returned with a sizeable amount of knowledge in Icelandic History and Present, Sagas and Science. Not to forget all the hilarious stories we have been told, that even forced me to take notes to assure I would be able to repeat! Accommodations were all nice and comfortable, including one really unique experience of a night in a fairytale home of the past. All in all a perfect, unforgettable tour, last but not least thanks to our really fabulous guide!

Nice bath. You can take drinks from the bar into the water and also your mobile phone. We went here because the Blue Lagoon is supposed to be so crowded and it's also half the price. Water temperature was comfortable. There was shampoo and shower gel in the showers. The bathroom will be enlarged even further.

Super good if you have rented a car and the information is always played automatically. Interesting information.

Our guide Oscar is superb, he shared us everything of Iceland, such a good guide!

The tour guide was very interesting and saw different scenery.
