Guests at Basecamp

  • Pick-up at your hotel in Reykjavik.
  • All safety gear, helmets, harnesses, etc.
  • Small groups, plenty of guides = personal experience.
  • Volcano tour of a lifetime.
  • Traditional Icelandic meat soup, coffee/tea and perhaps some sweets as well. Vegetarians will have alternatives.
  • Transfer back to your hotel in Reykjavik.

Bring with you:

  • Good (hiking) shoes – if you have them. We don’t recommend sneakers, they will definitely get dirty and may get punctures.
  • Water. The walk over the lava field is a good workout!
  • Outdoor clothing. The weather in the mountains can be very different to the city. A warm sweater and jacket are very useful, not least because it’s always the same temperature inside the crater – about 5–6°C (42–43°F). That’s cold!
  • A camera. You will want to remember this trip. Yes, you can take as many pictures as you want!
  • A good spirit. This tour is all about having fun.
