Amazing, and completely worth it! We shared an ATV and even went on a questionable weather day where it was raining on and off. We were given gloves, wore our hiking boots and rain jacket and then had the time of our lives. The ride up to the top of the lake and then back down through the towns was incredible to see areas that most likely we would have never found on our own in our car. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly, answered any questions we had and always made sure we were safe! Thank you again, we would highly recommend :)

Filippe was a great guide. Serious about safety and well organized, but also friendly and made everyone comfortable. This was an incredible way to see the craters but also included a tour of the seaside villages, which was a pleasant surprise. 4 quads on our tour, so not a huge mob, which was great. Dress for variable weather.

THIS IS THE TOUR YOU MUST CHOOSE. Not only do you get amazing views, but get the liberating and fun opportunity to ride a quad through them. The instructor is amazing, he provides historical knowledge and makes you feel very comfortable. Whether it’s your first time or you ride quad often, you will love this event.
