Mt. Hekla

Hekla is one of Iceland's most active volcanoes. With over 20 eruptions in and around the volcano since 874. During the Middle Ages, Europeans called the volcano the "Gateway to Hell".

The most infamous volcano in Iceland

Hekla is part of a large volcanic ridge. The most active part of this ridge, is a fissure about named Heklugjá.

Many Europeans believed that Hekla was one of two known entrances of Hell.  Many extraordinary and dreadful legends about the volcano existed and was unclimbed until 1750, when two naturalists hiked to the summit. Up there, they could not find anything to substantiate the legend and since then, the mountain is frequented by all kinds of people.  The easiest way up is from the north.  On a fine day, the view from up there is simply unbelievable.

"Reykjavik Sightseeing"

We took the 8 hour bus trip to see as much as we could in a short period of time. The bus was modern and comfortable. The tour guide was informative and we saw some very different landscapes. Parts of Iceland are unique and there are opportunities for awesome pictures. A favourite was watching the Geyser erupt every 8-10 minutes. Very interesting.

"South coast classic"

Just got back from the tour! We went on a large bus that was in pristine condition and always at a comfortable temperature. Though large, the tour felt more intimate than other large bus tours we had been on. The group may have been smaller and both the guide and driver reached out and connected with everyone on the tour. Both answered questions and were very happy to chat about Iceland and Icelandic culture. The audio guides were a nice addition

"Wonderful waterfall tour"

We did the southern Iceland tour that included the glacier hike and visiting three waterfalls. The bus was smaller than other companies, but had free wifi and individual tablets with information about various sights along the way. Our guide was excellent and went with us through a stream into the hidden waterfall area. He also took many pictures of us. I would highly recommend this company and would book them again.
