A highlight of our trip!
Dec 2019
I am so happy that I stumbled across this adventure when I was planning our holiday trip to Iceland. Olaf (I'm sure I've spelled it wrong - sorry!) picked us up exactly on time and took us first to the lava tube. We were all absolutely amazed by the fact that we could just hope out of the car, don our hardhats, and walk across the snow down into another world! We could have driven right by without ever knowing the beauty right under our feet. Travel in the cave/tube was relatively easy, but there were a number of places where you had to stoop and/or crawl a short distance. Olaf did a good job explaining the forces that created the tube and pointing out the various interesting rock compositions/ formations. Would do this again in a heartbeat!

We also enjoyed the stop at the Krysuvik geothermal area, and hearing all about the landscape, history and trolls.... The tube however, is what made this a morning to remember. Thank you Olaf!

A surprise tour purchased by a friend, turned out to be one of the best things we did in Iceland!
Dec 2019 • Friends
What an amazing tour!! I didn't know what to expect as the tour was booked as a sneaky surprise by my friend. But we both agreed after our trip to Iceland it was possibly one of (if not the) best things we did in Iceland. Eric was an outstanding guide and delivered in spades. A unique, personable tour in to a lava cave, unforgettable.

Our tour guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the area, and chose a caving route appropriate to our group's ability. The cave was amazing, and the views (like everything in Iceland!) were incredible. Highly recommend this tour!

Fantastic day out
This was to be my final trip in Iceland, and I am so fortunate to have picked this trip. It started off a cold, still and bright morning, and as the sun started to set, our guide, Louis, stopped and took some pictures of us with Mt. Esja in the background and we made our way down. He inundated us with stories of sagas, the formation of the lava tubes and then told us a saga in the pitch darkness of the lava tube. Not an experience I will forget any time soon. Louis was extremely professional and knowledgeable, and gave us all hot chocolate at the geothermal area.

Very highly recommended
We did the Lava Tube tour and it was awesome! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the geology and history of the area, and even told us a saga regarding the caves. We got lucky and were the only ones booked on the tour and, from pickup to drop off at our hotel, it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

Amazing experience
Apr 2019 • Friends
A wonderfully informative and fascinating insight into the local geology. The highlight was the Leidarendi lava tube experience. Our guide was patient (our very small group, 2, contained a septuagenarian), exceedingly knowledgable and took photos for us. Thoroughly recommend.

Jan 2019 • Family
Our guide, Kommi was amazing - very knowledgable about the caves and volcanoes but also about Iceland in general. He was brilliant with my children, telling them stories and he even made a snowman for them. Couldn't fault the trip, which was really interesting and very worth while. Kommi was an excellent guide and took great photos, which he sent on to us afterwards. I would recommend Basecamp Iceland to anyone. Had a great time. January 2019.

Breathtaking experience - A memory never to be forgotten
Feb 2019 • Couples
We Don't normally write reviews however have just come back from Iceland and out of all the tours we done with different providers this was by far the best! Our guide was Gilli who we felt went above and beyond. The knowledge and information Gilli had was incredible and we walked away with every question answered. He also helped me with figuring out my camera and getting amazing photos! We felt a lot of care and passion was put into this tour. It is a little more expensive than the coach tours however worth every single penny! We went to less touristy places and had the benefit of our own private tour pretty much! Managed to get so much closer to the nature and beauty of Iceland. When we visit Iceland again we will ensure all our trips are done through this company! Do not waste your time or money on other providers! This is by far the best experience we have ever had!

Thank you so much for helping us to create life long memories!

Had great time, enjoyed the few hours of daylight we had for the middle of December. Had a great time, went to several stops and learned so much about volcanos! It was just two of us that booked the tour, so very small group!!
