Elena Sertakova 

Translated from Russian

Organization   

The route of a hike is developed competently. A lot of interesting and beautiful places we drove passed and saw. Assisted in the preparation for the trip, check-in and payment of baggage. Thank you

Food   

Food is well organized. I was surprised that throughout the trip the food was prepared by the instructor. Thanks Roman for delicious breakfasts, Lunches and dinners. In Moscow and St. Petersburg groups, we somewhere went in parallel, food was prepared on duty - members of the group in turn. However the mushrooms that we have collected, processed and prepared ourselves.

Instructor - Roman Flys   

Kind, sympathetic, patient, calm man in his place. I personally helped on the steep and skoletsky sections of long descent, for which many thanks to him.

General opinion   

It was my lifelong dream to see Iceland. I saw very many interesting things, traveled and passed through the beautiful, fabulous and memorable areas of Iceland: lake, waterfalls, rivers, geysers, colorful mountains, passes and peaks, glaciers and the Atlantic ocean with its black beaches. Admiring the flowers, unusual trees, herbs. Relished the hot springs was floating on an inflatable catamaran to the Glacier lagoon (9800 Lis. crowns). But all that I saw and you name it. The Moscow and Petersburg groups with whom we walked side by side, the Hiking time was shorter, naturally they saw less than our group, and their price hikes higher than ours. A little tips from me for future travelers: 1) many members of the group and I sometimes feel cold at night and in the morning in tents, so pay attention to the sleeping bags and clothes; 2) I have even some of the participants were puffs and wore them often, so you can add to clothes at least sleep in a tank top; 3) to view the Golden ring of Iceland, it is better to join for 5 people to rent a car and to drive themselves along the route - it will be cheaper, no time constraints, you can still see the lake in the crater of the volcano (400 ISL.crowns).

Tour Information

Incredible travel which resembles a walk on Mars, as we see improbable lava fields, thermal valleys and huge glaciers. During the hike we overcome several unique valleys, swim in the Atlantic Ocean and visit an ice lagoon where glacier slowly slides into the ocean. Also we visit fabulous waterfalls, geysers and thermal Blue Lagoon. This trip is likely to be the best travel of the year or even the best travel of life.
