Thats one big tick off the bucket list. Had no idea it was even possible to see the northern lights this time of year so was delighted to stumble across a poster in the saga shop (apparently it is usually from Sept) I must admit we were very skeptical, asked for a guarantee to see them but of course this...

My wife and I accompanied two others for a 11 hour tour of Godfoss, Myvatn hot spring area, Detifoss, two particularly interesting basalt formations, and a lagoon. We finished our afternoon with a nice lunch on the deck at Husavik complete with Kaldi dark beer. What made the trip special was our guide, Gisle. A 250+ lb. Icelandic strong man... More

I went to Akuyreri for a holiday weekend break. It was my first time visiting the North of Iceland and as my adventure was rather unplanned, I was worried that there were so much places to see in so little time. To be on the safe side and more time efficient, I decided to go on the Diamond Circle tour.... More

My husband and I wanted a more personalized tour than we had experienced when traveling on a cruise in the past so while on a stop on a recent cruise in Akureyri, we had arranged a private tour with Saga Tours. We were picked up right on time at the pier where our ship was docked and we enjoyed a... More

we recently did the ice cave trip. We were on a cruise ship and Saga Travel picked us up from the cruise port and delivered us to the small group going to the ice cave. The cave is on a family property and is blissfully untouched by tourism. there are no souvenir shops or amenities. We had a fantastic foray... More

We booked a private tour, thinking simply that it would be a great way to see things that we wouldn't find on our own. That turned out to be the understatement of our trip-Iceland is not big on spoiling all that scenic beauty with signs, so we would never have been able to see the amount of things we did... More

I enquired with several tour agencies in Iceland and found the responses from Tinna to be the most friendly, sincere & helpful. As a result of that, I decided to go with Saga Travel, although my tour was in the south. Due to time constraints, I had an unusual tour: combining the Golden Circle and glacier lagoon with an overnight... More

This was so much fun! The cave itself is absolutely fantastic, but Stebbi, our guide, was amazing as well. He got us all fit into our boots before embarking on a bumpy journey where he told stories and answered questions about the area. DEFINITELY wear waterproof pants and jacket, as well as a sweater and thermal leggings underneath. You could... More

We're a Hong Kong group of 4 and took the Askja private tour with Siggi as our guide. The scene is wonderful. Even the weather is as promised (it changes every 5 minutes) we enjoy the trip very much - crossing several river with Super Jeep, driving on snow, taking sunbath (only our guide is naked). Siggi's work definitely make... More
