Was stopping into Akureyri on a port of call and was lookiing for something unique to do with the short stay we had. I checked out Saga Travel's website and found a horseback riding tour. I contacted them via their website and received prompt response. I felt confident when I booked online because they were so prompt and efficient with... More

We booked a volcano sightseeing flight and it was a fantastic experience. Booked online and got all the info needed. Hotel pick up half hour before the scheduled flight and easy access to airport and plane. Small plane, everyone gets a window seat. Flight goes over the active volcano several times, 40 minutes, and gives everybody the chance to see... More

At First thank you to Bryndis who really helped me to change my booking after having booked the wrong date and finding out that the Askja Tour was not availabl due to the eruption. Instead we made the Fire and Ice Combo Tour to Lofthellir Lava Cave and the volcanic area. The tour itself was wonderful and definitely recommandable!

Well, with the eruption of Bárðarbunga in progress this review about ‘quiet and cool North of Iceland’ might look irrelevant, but since the final lines of the previous year’s review (about our summer experience with Saga Travel in the North) were: “As our next visit to Iceland draws near with every shorter day, we will try to get back to...

Lofthellir cave is amazing! The feeling of climbing down in a hole is a little bit uncomfortable at first, but so totally worth it! I don't want to give away too much, but it is a fantastic experience to everyone that likes to live a little adventure and is rewarded with a majestic natural phenomenon.

We booked this tour and we started from lake Myvatn. But you can start in Akureyri if you want. From Myvatn the tour takes about 4 to 5 hours. You choose the right size of boots with spikes and receive a helmet. The tour starts with a bumpy ride. Although it's very, very bumpy you really feel save in the... More

As we had arrived on a cruise ship, the trip had to taken within a specific period of time and we were visiting the same areas as the cruise ship coaches. Driver (Paul) was very informative and changed the attractions we visited due... More

I had the pleasure of reserving two seats on the Northern Lights tour last night 9/16/2014. We were advised that the tour would be slightly longer than normal as they wanted to show us the glow of the erupting volcano- Bardabunga, some 200 km away from the pickup location. We had heard of several experiences in the southern portion of... More

My husband and I were in Iceland for ten days in August and thoroughly enjoyed our trip. We went on a number of tours from Reykjavik, one of which was particularly memorable. Sverrir was our capable, friendly and flexible guide on a 10-11 hour tour of Southern Iceland (with the smallish company, Saga tours). Often the tour companies must drop... More

We took Saga Travel's combined Lofthellir Ice Cave and Gjastykki tour from Myvatn. My wife and I are 70 and, although we are reasonably fit, we weren't sure if we were up to the cave part. I wrote to the company expressing our concerns and received a reassuring reply. They were right. Although the tour was somewhat challenging, it was... More
