Overview

Book
Gurgling hot springs, majestic waterfalls, volcanoes alive and extinct, Europe’s biggest glacier – Iceland, where adventures a la naturale await.

    • Discover Iceland's fascinating history on a walk around Reykjavik, which includes a visit to the massive Lutheran church of Hallgrimskirkja
    • Drive along the island’s spectacular South Shore past the Reynisdrangar Rocks and volcanic black sand beaches
    • Head to Skaftafell National Park and get adventurous with a hike to Vatnajokull, Europe's largest glacier
    • The aurora borealis is the best lightshow on Earth, and this trip is your ticket. Stay up late to see the northern sky dance with green light (subject to weather conditions and activity)

Great trip, our guide (Palli) was super helpful during my Icelandic adventure. I traveled solo for the first time and made tons of new friends! The included food (mostly breakfast) was superb, and we were able to get a museum trip instead of a glacier walk for free when a big snowstorm ruined our plans. Totally recommend it for solo travelers as I never felt bored or unsafe.

The trips are rather expensive. However, it was worth the money especially for a first-time trip to an unfamiliar destination, or if you have concerns regarding safety and/or cultural differences.

Great tour guide, very friendly locals, amazing food (go for the fish), gorgeously stunning scenery everywhere. There is nothing to not love about Iceland. I would advise to try and stay out there on a slightly longer trip, however.

Our guide, Havar, was excellent. Despite losing most of the first full day, due to a storm closing the roads out of Reykjavik, he managed to rearrange the days and fill all of the planned itinerary during the trip. Although there are a couple of long drives, the scenery is just stunning and Havar stopped at plenty of view points. The Northern Lights were quite elusive but with some patience Havar tracked them down on the fifth night and was on hand to give photography tips. The beer in Iceland is eye-wateringly expensive! As a vegetarian the food is bland, unless you like vegi burgers. The food at the second homestay was extremely poor and expensive. Overall, a great way of sampling Iceland.

I booked the tour for the opportunity to see the Northern Lights. I did get to see the Lights, but came back with so much more! The sights and experiences were awesome!

The Golden Circle is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and well worth the trip. We loved staying at the farmhouse in Hotel Fljótshlíð. The food was definitely a highlight!

This trip was beyond amazing! Iceland was definitely the most interesting, beautiful country I've visited. The Northern Lights Escape was the perfect length, including all the major bucket list things to do and our guide super friendly and knowledgeable of the Country . Can't wait to travel with them again!
