Fantastic waterfalls, getting close to a glacier and the amazing black sand beach with Basalt cliffs make this a great day out. The guide and driver are excellent (Johannus and Skulli), both funny and very knowledgeable.

Such a glorious day of geysers and waterfalls and tectonic plates, all with amusing and insightful commentary from Matt about the people and places of this extraordinary country. They should definitely give the lad a pay rise.
