It was a tight fit for 2 people in their late 50's but it was worth it
This was a great day in Iceland. We were picked up from our hotel as promised and taken the the ATV HQ where we were fitted with snow suits, gloves and helmets. Then Indi and Alex showed us how to operate the ATVs. They made sure we were completely confident and comfortable with the machines. The ATVs were clean, newer and well-maintained. We rode off in convoy across fields, back roads and trails and eventually ended up on top of a mountain for photos, a brief stretch and a snowball fight. On the way back we splashed through mud puddles and forded a small river. It was a great first experience on an ATV. Thanks, guys!
Then they drove us back in to downtown Reykjavik where we had an hour to get something to eat. Around the appointed time, we were picked up by another van for the lava caving portion of the tour. Our driver/guide sorry, but we forgot his name, but he was from Greece drove us to the lava fields and once parked, he issued helmets and lights. After a short briefing and safety check, we headed for the lava tubes. Our guide was very informative and knowledgeable and one of the best parts of the tour was sitting deep inside the cave and turning off the lights to experience total darkness. We also took a few minutes to just sit and listen to the cave. We didn't descend very far - it was more of a level walk, but we did go fairly deep into the cave. There were a couple of tight squeezes, but they opened up into bigger areas quite quickly. It was terrific! I am 6'2 tall and slightly claustrophobic, but I never felt confined or restricted. After the tour, we were driven back to our hotel. Rain or shine, take this tour.
Great tour! Informative tour guide. The caves are amazing to explore. Highly recommended. Word of caution - there are some tight spaces you have to crawl through, not for the claustrophobic.
They also offer pickup and drop off from your Reykjavik location which is great.
