What people are saying about Reykjanes Peninsula

We never do tours but the idea of a small group being led by an actual geologist caught our attention, and I honestly cannot praise this experience enough! Don’t get me wrong, seeing an active volcano is amazing but having a volcanologist guiding you through what you are seeing is next level! Jasmine is so informative & knowledgable. She spent time individually with each member of our group to answer our questions, giving a truly personal experience. Without her expertise we would’ve missed out on so much. We came away with a new found fascination for volcanos.

Amazing tour! As much as the view of the lava field and the crater was incredible, the info that you get on this tour is amazing. Jasmine our geologist guide, was so informational. Also, she is super fun to hike with. She was also super gracious to drive through some beautiful landscapes on our way back to Reykjavik. Thank you Jasmine for such a nice experience! Our group was only 4 people + Jasmine.

Brilliant day. Jasmine is a great person to spend time with and really added a knowledgable spin to the day. The volcano or weather won’t perform to order, but it was a great experience all the same. Be prepared for an hour climb though.

Tour both interesting and impressive, with an attentive and passionate guide: perfect!

What a wonderful experience. I highly recommend thos tour.
