The owner of this firm appears to have a philosophy: Pick smart, committed people to run the tours and gain exclusive access to extraordinary properties. We started at 8 am and ended at 10 pm. It was worth every minute and every cent. The ice cave tour was fun, but nothing could compare to the wide open expanses of the... More

Awesome "midnight sun" tour. The tour guide was very knowledgable and fun to travel with. The local dinner was superb.

Seven of us took a private tour to visit Godafoss and the Lake Myvatn area. We met our driver/guide Gummi at the pier. There is plenty of room for us in the 10-passenger van. Gummi turns out to be an experienced and knowledgeable guide, and we learned a lot from him about Iceland, particularly on the geological aspect. We made... More

In early July 2014, Saga Travel provided myself and my father with a thoroughly enjoyable and extensive tour of Northern Iceland. We were met at our hotel in Akureyri by our superjeep driver Siddi, who would prove to be a friendly, entertaining and resourceful guide. In the space of only one day, the number of sites we were able to... More

I had a wonderful experience on my Saga tour! The small numbers really allow for a personal feel, and the day was filled with beautiful sights and excellent conversation. Our guide was Gisli, who shared his Icelandic knowledge and pride so openly, which really enriched the tour. I felt comfortable asking questions and definitely learned a lot about the area... More

The Lofthellir experience was one of the best of my Icelandic experiences! We were lead by the guide Anton into a dark abyss to find a crystal cathedral underneath the volcanic 'moon-like' surface above. In addition to a few witty jokes and a broad factual knowledge base, Anton exposed a few remarkable secrets of the caves to us (No spoilers... More

We booked the Golden Circle, the helicopter over volcanoes, the Super Jeep and a private tour of the South Coast with Saga Travel. We could not recommend this company more. We had two other tours with two other companies and they were good, but after having the experience with Saga we wished we would have used them exclusively. This company... More

Booked to avoid Cunard excursions and a million times better. Comfortable vehicle, just us, another couple from our ship and the driver/guide Sigurpoll (I may have spelled that wrong!!). The Saga office is really easy to find by Akureyri cathedral, so we had a little time to explore the town first. We then went to Myvatn and all the places... More

I came to Akureyri for a pre-booked Northern Lights tour, but wanted to make the most out of my time and booked a tour with Saga Travel. I booked a Super Jeep tour (it was November) and had Anton as my guide - what a blast! This guy has the best attitude - he really loves what he does. We... More

Lake Myvatn afternoon and evening tour was an excellent and welcoming introduction to the north. Guide Gisli was charming, witty, knowledgable, and flexible. Dinner at the Cow Shed Cafe was delicious, including many local products well prepared: cured arctic char, lamb shank or grilled arctic char, both sided with summer green salad, home made ice cream with local flavors.
