Volcanoes of Iceland Testimonials

Our guide was superb. He had the personality, patience and calmness required to give clients reassurance that they are in good hands. His focus on safety was superb and his deep knowledge of the history and terrain of Iceland made the experience so much more interesting.

This was fantastic experience combining some great climbs with travel and time in Iceland. The mix allowed decent recovery time between climbs and also gave time to get familiar with the country and its culture. First class

The trip was a fantastic experience! We were amazed at the broad range of locations and activities we got to experience in a short time span. Our guide was expert, kind and funny! Overall, we were thrilled with our visit to Iceland!

Yes.  We appreciated the beauty of the places we climbed and the chance to interact with Iceland’s wild places.
