We spent 2 nights at the Volcano Hotel and were lucky enough to be able to book a trip with Johann who also runs Mountain Excursions. This was certainly worth the cost and made our trip. Johann was able to take myself, my husband and my daughter out onto the glacier. There was no on else around and the scenery... More

We did the 3+ hours of the glacier walk tour with one other nice couple. We had to postpone two times due to the constantly changing weather of Iceland. We started at 9am with perfect weather and our guide Johann was so informative and made this walk easy. He knows which spots to take amazing pictures. We took tons of... More

Johann is the best! We did two tours with him and couldn't be more pleased. I should note that I have bad knees, a bad back and asthma and had no problems doing the glacier hike. I was a bit hesitant (ok, scared) at first but Johann put me at ease immediately and made the trip downright fun. I also... More

We booked the Glacier hike tour with Johann. The tour was absolutely fantastic and the highlight of our holiday to Iceland. There were only 5 of us on the tour which was great as this meant we got to see and hear more on the tour compared to some of the other tours which we saw on the glacier. We... More

The Supertruck ride was amazing (although rough and bumpy). We drove along the beautiful black sand beach and then up into the highlands to the face of one of the largest glaciers in Iceland. Our guide (who is also the owner of the super truck and the Volcano Hotel) put on crampons and climbed up the face of the glacier... More

A MUST DO in Vik! We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed both of these tours. The morning Katla Supertruck tour and the afternoon glacier walk tour we're both unique and fun. Johann is a native and is clearly passionate about sharing the area with new comers. In the morning we went to black sand beaches, black sand... More

We were on a trip with a small group of people. Went on the Super Jeep Tour to a glacier. First of all, the Super Jeep is really something - never seen anything like it. It's luxuriously comfortable. Car loving men will really enjoy seeing it. The tour guide Johan will give you an interesting narrative about the area as... More

We booked a half-day tour with Johann who owns Mountain Excursion and the Volcano Hotel (see my review of the hotel) for Sat, July 30. We had a great time seeing the glacier closeup and other areas where we could not have driven our rental car. It would have been fun to hike more but we jammed alot of sightseeing... More

We did the Katla Supertruck tour with Aron and it was by far the best part of our Iceland trip. We went with my 2-year-old son so and he of course loved the 'monster truck'- he was so comfortable in it that he fell asleep! Aron was lovely, and had so much information to share. We truly felt like his... More

We did two tours with Johann. The first was a glacier walk which was a tremendous experience and a true highlight for our kids. Johann met us in the later afternoon and we went out as all other groups seemed to be coming in which made for a very private glacier walk with no other groups to contend with. On... More
