We had a great time!! First stop - explore a lava cave. I wasn't expecting to climb into the lava cave (don't ask me what I was expecting, because I don't know). Our guide was informative and extremely friendly. From there we went to a restaurant in Eyrarbakki for the lobster dinner. We received 5 small lobster tails each that were the sweetest best tasting lobsters EVER!! I am gluten/dairy free and had mine plain and they were fantastic. Unfortunately, the weather was not cooperating and we were unable to see the lights. However, it was definitely worth the trip.

Our guide/driver 'Thor' was personable and informative. Caving was not too difficult but there is a little bit of 'scrambling' and you needed to be mindful of your footing. Nice traveling with a smaller group. Dinner was delicious. Northern Lights were not very active-went looking next nite free.

Climbing up into the super jeep so large I needed a boost up, I knew this wasn't going to be a sit-back tour. After braving the icy roads out of Reykjavik, we ended up completely in the middle of nowhere at Leiðarendi cave (http://cave.is/caves-in-iceland/leidarendi-cave/). The wind was so strong it was hard to stand up at times, and after donning hard hats and lamps, our guide promptly slid on his back down an almost invisible hole into the dark below. After wiggling, climbing, bending and bumping our way through, we discovered an enchanting lava tube of hobbit-like proportions, along with its hidden secrets of previous occupants - both animal and mineral!

We then headed to Eyrarbakki, a small village in South West Iceland, and enjoyed a delicious lobster meal in Rauða Húsið (The Red House), with some excellent beers.

We then had the tricky task of spotting northern lights in a cloudy, full-moon sky. Our guide tried three of the 'regular' spots he knew, but nothing was to be seen. Rather than give up, he drove another 30-45 mins on up a mountain in a BLIZZARD to try and get us a view, but nothing could be done. Such is the chance you take with Northern Lights tours.

While we didn't see the lights this time, this was a brilliant package tour with a guide who definitely knew his stuff.

Great evening out! Provided by Arctic Adventures our Super Jeep transported 10 of us (including our guide). Our guide was good fun and gave lots of ancedotes. Dinner was lovely - Icelandic lobster is quite different from lobster I've had previously. Lots of food, cooked to a good standard. There was also a vegetarian in our group and they were also able to cater for this person (i.e. they don't serve lobster and nothing else). Northern lights - we were lucky to see some great lights and our guide had also brought his tripod and let those of us who were unprepared (i.e. me) borrow it to take photos. He also has seen so many cameras he was able to provide help to those wanting to take pictures but not understanding their cameras. We choose this trip on the basis that if we didn't manage to see the lights then we would have an enjoyable evening out - we were definately right and on top of that we were lucky enough to see the lights. Top tip: wrap up warm - northern lights viewing is very cool so take extra layers, you can always leave in the car!

Very expensive and not good value for money! We stopped for 15 mins to look at Northern lights, we were lucky, then onto lava caves. Lave Caves basically walking through a tunnel! Very poor value for money meal, hardly any bread, five small langoustines, not lobster, small wilted salad. The drinks not included, should have been at this price, overall very poor. The tour guide was however lovely.
