Hæ hæ! Great to hear that you had good time. It is strange if you did not have time to take a dip. Was the weather not good or the condition to go down to the crater not good. I am not sure. If one of this is not fine then the guide is worried about the client and does not give time for that maybe. We let the guide value how things are because the weather and the condition change every day. But I am glad you got to see this amazing place and explore the highlands of Iceland. Hopefully you can coma again to Iceland and then have time to dip in the water :)
