The darkness is so dense that it would be impossible ...

    Great day from start to finish. We hired a quad each (4 of us) and the quads were amazing to drive. Our guide for the morning, known as...…….. Sir Kaktuz made the day even more enjoyable. The quads were incredibly fast and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Then the lava cave in the afternoon was very interesting, I'm afraid that the name of the lady guide has slipped my mind. She was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions relating to the lava cave. I will always remember switching off our head torches and being plunged into complete darkness whilst our guide told us a story about Icelandic Santa Clauses. Great day! :)

The Guide, which leads the quad tour was a very cool guy :-) It was my first time to drive a quad and it was so much fun :-) The only thing, that is a bit bad is, that all persons, which drive the quad, must have a valid driving license. My friend could't drive it alone, so she had to sit in the back of my quad. It was also okay, but this should be mention on the details in the tour.

Great experience! The tour guides had great senses of humor. A little on the expensive side, but if you've never done anything like this, definitely recommended.
