    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Volcano House, Tryggvagata 11, Reykjavik 101 Iceland

    The tour starts with a 50 minutes long Emmy nominated documentary about some of Iceland's most famous eruptions. A great way to warm up before we pick you up for visiting the volcanoes.

    Duration: 50 minutes

    Stop At: Krisuvik/Seltún Parking, Iceland

    A geothermal area with bubbling hot springs and fumaroles and the smell of sulfur in the air. A great place where you get unusually close to the boiling mud pits.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    This trip was amazing! Even though it rained during the whole tour, we got an amazing experience. It was not far to hike and the tour-guide was very good, funny and had a lot of knowledge.

    We only got out of the SUV where he told us to. Most of the climbing was in the car. We were places where we had to be careful because it wasn’t even terrain but nothing was really hiking.

    Basic fitness. My husband has had a knee replacement and he managed fine.

    I think that would work well. It is about 45 to the airport, so a morning tour would end about lunchtime, giving you plenty of time to make it to the airport
