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
