We spent a magical day with Gylfi, touring the active volcano and the surrounding area. How fortunate we were to see the earth perform in this spectacular fashion. How fortunate we were to have had such an excellent tour guide.

Amazing tour!
Dec 2019 • Family
This was one of the most fun private tours we did because of how engaging and knowledgeable our guide Dofri was. He kept us entertained with trivia, hilarious anecdotes and detailed information about the beautiful sights we saw. The different landscapes we drove and walked through were surreal, and the food we had in a small fishing village was delicious. Dofri went out of his way to make this a personalised and memorable experience for us and we are so thankful for that! Can't wait to do another tour the next time we're in Iceland.

What an AMAZING experience! Dofri is an excellent guide with so much knowledge, and a genuine interest in geology. If you have any interest in volcanoes, this is THE tour for you.

Small groups make a better experience, hands down!

Personlized excursion
I had some scheduling issues that I worked out with Dofri before I arrived and the day of my tour we both had even more schedule issues. But we worked out what worked for both of us. He met me exactly on time and got me to my airport drop off exactly when he said he would. The tour itself was great. I am a geologist and had only a half day so this worked great. I was able to see a lot in a short time. I highly recommend this tour if you don’t have a lot of time. Dofri is an excellent guide and with a small group it’s much easier to accommodate your own interests.

Well done and indiviualized tour of pristine volcanic region.
May 2019 • Friends
We had scheduled several quite long and demanding tours and were looking for a way to relax but still see more of Iceland in a less hectic manner. This was exactly what we were looking for. The tour started at the Volcano house that gave a lot of background on the volcanic history of Iceland. From there were were picked up by Finn in a Land Rover. While there were only two in our tour, the maximum would be maybe 5 so it is a very individualized tour whose pace is your pace. The drive took us to the volcanic area in the Reykjavic Peninsula. This is a protected and almost pristine area. We drank water directly from a glacier fed lake, visited hot springs and enjoyed panoramic vistas. The one on one with the tour guide provided a great opportunity to ask all the questions that had been in my mind, not only about volcanos and hot springs but Iceland itself. This was well done and worth it.

Thanks to Finn for an excellent half-day lava fields tour!
My son & I wanted a tour, whilst the girls went horse riding, & this was exactly what we needed. As it happened we were the only ones who booked so Finn gave us our own private tour anyhow!
The short film set the scene perfectly & then Finn picked us up & drove us out onto the peninsula; it’s a different world there & not something you’d find easily on your own.
The ride in the Land Rover Disco 4 was perfect & we did experience a bit of off-road too.
One stop at a secret location, a flask of chocolate & another special stop on the way home all interspersed with explanations & anecdotes made for a great experience.
Best of luck with the tours, you’ve set the standard high & deserve the best.

Exquisite volcano vistas
Apr 2019 • Friends
This tour with Dofri was an unforgettable experience. It began with an excellent film at the Volcano House showing footage of an actual eruption, and an explanation of what causes volcanic eruptions. We were then taken in a 4-wheel drive vehicle to various off-the-beaten path places, where we saw the most majestic views while walking on what once was lava. At some of these spots we were the only people there, and we could experience the total silence. And we didn't need to drive very far to reach these sites. Dofri tailored the tour to our physical abilities (were are in our 60s). His expert knowledge of geology, history, and environmental issues made the trip a great learning experience.
