Once your king crab has been caught, you are transferred to remote cabin where the crab will be prepared for a delicious lunch. All equipment and clothing provided.

We started in Reykjavik, toured for 6 nights and ended in Reykjavik. Tour was very good, however I didn't like that the included dinners did not provide a choice. Everyone got the same meal. When I travel on a tour (10-12)we always had a choice. Did not like that we had to stay in a separate building at the Hotel Hofn and walk back and forth in the rain, while others in our tour group stayed in the main hotel.
