We did the Lake Myvatn tour. Weather was terrible the first day and we had to turn back. Next day weather was OK. Guides was knowledgeable and very accommodating. Would highly recommend Saga to anyone going to Akureyri. We didn't see the Lights but it was not for lack of trying on Saga's part, just uncooperative weather.

Everything was good about the trip to Lake Myvatn with Saga Travel, they came and picked me up from my airport - the tour guide was informative, kind and very thoughtful. We saw some amazing landscapes - and it was all done in a relaxed and easy going style. The lunch was fantastic at a resturant attached to a farm... More

We took the lights tour with our guide Gisli. Tour was great. The knowledge of the guide was impressive, and entertaining. Saw the lights, too. I'd recommend Saga Travel to anyone wishing to experience the real thing. Barry Maine, USA

Marvelous quick trip through nearby areas - stops at amazing geologic sites (mud pots, tectonic plates, thermal area) and cow farm (great cakes and sweet cows). Guide (Gisli) entertaining and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

We had a private Northern lights tour with Anton on the 11Mar2015. The tour was very good. The guide was extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He was very persistant and we succeeded in seeing the Northern lights. I would highly recommend saga travel.

My wife and I had the privilege of attending 3 separate incredible excursions provided by Saga Travel. They converted the excursion into a trip of a lifetime. Every guide immediately engaged in sharing a bit of local culture, drawing us in as family. Thank you!!!!

We booked our flight over the volcanos and lava fields with Saga Travel . They were excellent at arranging our flight and transport to the airfield and back to our ship. When our flight was delayed due to high winds, they kept us well informed and took us as soon as the winds dropped. We will certainly use Saga again... More

We booked our tour with Inga at Saga Travel, Inga is the best contact, she is knowledgeable about her country and made good suggestions and arrangements before we arrive in Iceland. We were really lucky to have Anton as our tour guide for our Lake Myvatn tour, he is a local in the area and told us all the interesting... More

Its a long day, but its a good way see a lot of things on the north coast without losing a day or two for driving. The day starts out early in the morning at the Reykjavik municipal airport to catch one of Iceland Air's prop planes over Iceland's interior...which on a clear day is a great way to see... More

We used this company for a northern lights tour and for a full day tour of the Lake Myvatn area. Pick-ups were prompt, the guides were personable and relayed lots of information. The buses were comfortable. We saw a lot of things on the full day lake tour so I highly recommend this.
