The guided crossing was so much fun
The guided crossing was so much fun. Our guide told us lots of interesting facts about volcanoes and the area. Even though it was raining and very windy we were shown the safest tracks to cross and had a really great experience overall. The lunch that the tour group provided was also great. We were given lots of snacks and a tasty wrap
