Loved this tour and our guide was amazing. As we did this tour in winter, it was dependent on weather conditions. Driving to the highlands towards the hot springs took Awhile and we didn’t get a chance to see Mt Hekla since we had only 4 hours of daylight which was used to get us to hot springs. This itself was an incredibly amazing experience to trudge through the snow and go into 40+ degree water! The views on the highlands and driving through small rivers in the super truck was an unusual experience. The super truck itself was luxurious however the biggest drawback was the heavily tinted windows (which seem to be a norm here in Iceland) which really faded the views as we were driving. Still recommended!

We had a fantastic time on this tour! The guide Ólöf had a fresh and bright disposition, was very knowledgeable, answered a lot of questions and seemed to genuinely like being a guide. Mount Hekla had an amazing view and the hot springs were absolutely perfect with the lovely Landmannalaugar scenery. The sights were absolutely breathtaking and the drive itself exciting and fun! I definitely recommend this tour for those who want some excitement mixed with relaxation :)

Great Trip, good guide and transport and fantastic scenery. We did it in Winter but it looks like it would be amazing in the Summer too. Definitely recommended.
