What an experience! The timing was amazing - I didn’t know this volcano was going to erupt and we were there at the perfect time a couple of days after it did and got some of the best videos. The hike was unreal too but only (minor thing) I didn’t like was that they didn’t let you get closer to the eruption site. Understandable that you shouldn’t go all the way down to the lava, but being closer than 100 feet from it would be ideal. Anna was the best - super knowledgeable. Would 100% do this again

Bucket list item - check! What an incredible experience from start to finish. The tour company, Bustravel is fantastic. They are extremely flexible and go above and beyond to meet the needs of tourists. They even showed us an app they have created and use to ensure that no one gets left behind and considering the numbers of people they take on tours daily, they are phenomenal. Customer service is excellent at answering any questions also. The bus is very clean and seats are great. They even cater to the group, so we all decided to make some small adjustments to our day which ended up being a much more memorable experience overall. If we are back in Iceland, we will definitely use them for other experiences.

The trip to the lava field was relaxed. Three days later the volcano was active again. The visit to the blue lagoon was organized, you didn't have to worry about anything. The guide Joseph was very friendly and amusing, it was an entertaining day. If you have a car, you can also do the tour yourself, you just have to take care of it. That's how everything was organized.
