What people are saying about Hafnarfjörður

So it poured rain on the volcano hike, which was A VIBE. But it was more like being in a raincloud than anything else… our guide even said “Um… this is insane.” But was such a trooper. I needed a Gortex jacket instead of my simple rain jacket in the long run- and I was soaked through all 5 of my layers. And I honestly was the best off out of the group. I think bringing rain ponchos as backup would be a HUGE bonus for this guide company. I liked seeing the hot spots and tectonic plates, but I think we would have enjoyed things more if we weren’t all soaked to the bone. Which wasn’t any ones fault and almost everyone had a great attitude. The Blue Lagoon was AMAZING and our guide was awesome getting us in and explaining. I would say that as someone hiking on a volcano I would like to know more facts about it besides “it was national news, I am sure you saw.” And “the water is blue bc minerals.” That would have been the extra mile- but recommend this trip despite any weather!

Our tour of Fagradalsfjall with Cora was fantastic. The volcano hike was exactly what we expected - we were able to hike to the crater and feel heat emanating from the cracks in the recent lava flows. The extra stops along the Reykjanes Pennisula were very interesting. Highly recommend this tour.

A beautiful hike and then then a wonderful evening relaxing in the warm waters of the Blue Lagoon. Definitely worth it!

I had an awesome experience. our guide was on time, attentive and knowledgeable. Can't say enough.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and took us to other attractions after the hike. Great tour.
