Have to say coming to Iceland during winter season is not the best timing, consider the weather and daylight time, there are not much to do compared to summer time. Thanks to Saga Travel's thoughtful arrangement, we had a very fruitful day. We had a great time riding horse in the morning, even it's very cold but along the way... More

The trouble with winter is the shorter daylight - but on the other hand we get the northern lights! - thank you for the visit, always welcome back : ) More

This was called the Diamond Circle tour, out of Akureyri, and we covered a lot of ground. The bus was comfortable on most roads, though we did take a back road at one point that rattled our teeth - worth it for the view of the canyon at the top. The north of Iceland is very different and quite extraordinary.... More

Safety first! but we are glad that your tour didn't suffer for the different routes taken. Let's hope that Bárðarbunga doesn't flood the area. Thank you for the visit, and it's nice to read your compliments to Ármann, I'll let him know :) More

As a photographer, Iceland has always been one of my top places to visit. I was happily greeted by "Harry" at the airport and was pleased to find out that he was a photographer as well. He gave me some pre-game tips on how to photograph the Northern Lights, which was much appreciated, as he drove me to the hotel.... More

My husband and I have a wonderful time exploring this area with Saga Travel. We were met at the airport, taken to our hotel, and tours discussed. The Lake Myvatn tour was exceptional. What a beautiful country. Absolutely bring a camera, good walking shoes, and a hat and scarf as it can be windy. Gisli, our guide, was great. He... More

Saga Travel took excellent care of us (4 senior women) travelling to Akureyri as part of a short (5 day) visit to Iceland. We were met at the airport by Saga people & then took 2 tours with Gisli who made our adventures interesting & fun. Our handsome, Viking tenor was good company & explained many aspects of Icelandic life.... More

Four very longtime friends came from Toronto Canada to Iceland not having done their usual extensive research, so not knowing fully what to expect. When we arrived at the airport in Akureyri, we were met by two delightful Saga reps.who assured us we would be in good hands the next day on our excursion to Lake Myvatn. Well, we were... More

This was amazing! If you want to go to an ice cave you have to go through Saga. The joys are they have their own cave, small group of people (our tour was just me and hubs) so much fun!

Saga Travel took very good care of us during our stay in Akureyri. We undertook several excursions with them and they were very flexible to accommodate our plans. They always went the extra mile to ensure we could see everything we wanted to see. The staff in the office were always very friendly and helpful. The guides were knowledgeable and... More

Thanks to our guide, a very professional and kind guy called Gísli Rúnar. Gísli made the entire tour one of the most incredible and amazing experiences of our life. Thanks also to Saga tour and all its kind and lovely staff in Akureyri for this unforgetable and experience. Highly recommended! José Manuel Ballestero.
