What people are saying about Reykjanes Peninsula

This tour was amazing, we were lucky enough to have a super clear day so the hike was breathtaking. Jumping into Blue Lagoon was well deserved after the hike. The Hike was not too long and not that hard if you are semi fit. Definitely doable for most people, highly recommend hiking boots though. I was going to do it in Vans but opted for the boots and it was a better choice.

Our guide was very, very good! He had lots of years of experience as a guide, was a proud native Icelander and shared many insights into local life and culture, and what it was like to grow up in a very northern remote area of the country. It made for a very interesting and enjoyable experience along with the particular sights that we traveled to on this tour.

Great tour guide and everything went super smooth. The hike was really interesting and he stopped at good viewpoints for photos! Had about 2 hours in the lagoon which was perfect. Super recommend!

The guide was amazing and so I informative. He was hilarious and really attentive to everyone. The blue lagoon was amazing and the volcanos were stunning. We slept very good that night.

HBO was an amazing tour guide!! The tour was so much fun we did the blue lagoon included which was the best way to relax after the hike.
