About the tour

A volcano formed some 3000 years ago – nicely in the center of a valley. A lavafield showcasing the looks and impact of such events on the area. As always - nature is king !! Visiting Grábrók crater

I am late in leaving this review and I have since been on Albert’s evening tour of the erupting volcano in south Iceland. I enjoyed the latter much more than the tour of west Iceland, but this could be because I cannot claim to have a passionate interest in geology. I like Albert’s style of guiding, appreciate his dry sense of humour and am also impressed by his patience with the technological glitches which inevitably occur. Beautiful part of the world.
