Great tour. Would recommend even I think we could do it on our own as we had car. But we really enjoyed. The hike could be longer as it was only 2 hours all together not 4 as advertised. The driver and tour guide were friendly and even we stuck in the snow they had to put big effort to get the bus back on the road. They keep us safe and comfortable. Well done. Over all great communication and organisation.

Truly amazing excursion! 12 km (round trip) to reach the main crater. A "lunar" scenario that is worth the effort. The guide Agnes is fantastic, prepared and always ready to give you energy. The added value of the excursion.

Super Activities, really to do, the landscapes are so unusual! It's a bit physical though.

Highly informative. Learned a lot from the guide. The volcano and hot springs were great!

Julien was very accomodating and helpful throughout the hike!
