our hike was cut short due to weather which is understandble. Joseph was very kind and took us to extra stops to make up for it. went to blue lagoon after, spent max 2hrs there which reallg isnt enough time and felt verh rushed. blue lagoon is expensive and i think more time should be given for that. changing/manadatory shower/ doing the same after takes at least 30min with the amount of crowds. so technically, less than 1.5hrs in the lagoon.

Omar was an incredible guide ! Super knowledgeable , funny and just a joy and pleasure to spend the day with! After a disappointing northern lights tour with someone one else the evening before , Omar even took the time to make lots of recommendations for places to go that evening snd other useful tips. He went above and beyond to make sure everyone had an incredible day! 10/10 recommend this tour!
