Very nice hike. We didn't got to the Caldera cause the other travellers were not into walking that much (also the volcano was not active) but the guide took us to see some other interesting stuff so it was nice. Also the Guide was amazing, she even gave us some chocolate on the trip and was cheerful and high energy. Very recommended.

We were very lucky to have great weather, the views and experience were amazing. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend. Very professional trip from pick up to drop off, was contacted direct to determine where to be picked up and asked again at the end.

The hiking on volcanoes was phenomenal, we stopped also another 3 fantastic places before heading to the Blue Lagoon and spent 3 hours there. Definitely recommended!

Een interessante tour over het schiereiland, waarbij de tijd voor de wandeling richting de krater enigzins beperkt was

The experience was fulfilling and the guide was very friendly and helpful.
