    The whole area is called 'Geysir', but the only active eruptions are happening from Strokkur. Really incredible, actually. Every 8 to 10 minutes, it erupts. Just be ready with the camera! Would have loved to have seen the original Geysir, as it apparently erupted 4 to 5 times as high, but Strokkur is still impressive.

    What an amazing experience this was!!! They were able to accommodate a last minute booking for us and we were so happy they did despite the drizzly, cold weather. They equipped us with warm, waterproof jacket and pants and we enjoyed every minute of our hour long ride. The owner and our guide both taught us a great deal about Icelandic horses including their 5 gaits, and we even got to experience how smooth their unique tölt gait is during our ride. Our guide Hannah was so fun and helpful, and took photos of us at the beginning of our ride and at scenic points which we really appreciated. At the end of our trip the owner awaited us with coffee and cake to help warm us up. Everyone we interacted with was friendly, informative, and professional, the views were stunning, and we had a truly great experience. I hope to come back someday! Thank you!

    So I got the privilege to join Skuli and his amazing adventures for the second time with my dad and brother. And this time just so happened to be his South Africa tour. Skuli joined forces with 2 locals named Gareth and Brittany. And man did they put on one amazing trip. Between their knowledge, hospitality, kindness, and really down to earth amazing people, they helped make this trip what it was. But the scenery, the people, the atmosphere. All nothing short of amazing. We got really lucky with the weather. The dirtbikes are amazing and well maintained, the scenic days were majestic, but the single track was what made this trip a blast. The challenge behind some of it was the exciting part. We had a rainy day that was questionable to ride in, but 4 of us did a quick ride and it turned out to be one of the best days. Soaking wet, riding in and out of the creek, single track. The adrenaline was flowing that day. But overall, the trip was absolutely amazing and breathtaking. Both in the scenery and the riding. It doesn't matter if it South Africa or Iceland. Skuli has his tours figured out and he's doing it right. So if you've been riding with him in Iceland, I would highly suggest booking a tour with him in South Africa. You will not be disappointed at all.

    An excellent day trip, our guide “Kevin” (because his real name was too hard to pronounce) was attentive, funny and made our trip even more enjoyable. We started with the glacier as the weather was due to turn, and he wanted us to see it without getting soaked. It was stunning, well worth the walk, although I would suggest if you have remotely slippery shoes, buy some grips. At times it was a bit of a struggle to find a non-slippery part of the path to walk on. Don’t let that put you off though...it was beeeeaauuutiful! Then on to black beach in Vik, followed by the two waterfalls (one of which featured in Game of Thrones) Walkways to the waterfalls was again quite slippery, sheet ice in places, but I genuinely didn’t see anybody fall, so as long as you take care, and have good grip on your shoes, it shouldn’t be a problem.
    Kevin, brought samples of Icelandic food and drink for us all, and then dropped us off back in Reykjavik as near to our Airbnb as he could. I would highly recommend this trip, it was 10 hours with an 8am pick up, and worth every penny.
