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

My husband and I took this tour on our first day in Iceland, and it was one of the best things that we could have done. Our guide was fantastic (thanks, Hjalti Pall!) and we were lucky to be the only guests on the tour. We had time to go to a great waterfall for which we needed to call... More

Had a fabulous private tour with Saga Travel in the area around Akureyri, Iceland. Jorgen, a most knowledgeable guide, as well as personable, showed us the fabulous geological secrets and scenic wonders of this amazing beautiful place.

Our amazing day tour to Askja started at 6.30 am and returned to Akureyri at 9.30 pm. It was a long day, but we enjoyed every minute of it. When we traveled across the lava fields toward Herdubreid mountain and Askja, we became aware of our tour as a pilgrimage, where the long and strenuous road is even more important... More

What an exciting adventure into the ice cave! Boots with spikes and a helmet were furnished at the start, then we took a long, but interesting and bumpy ride over the lava field to a staging point, then a 30 minute hike to the cave entrance. Our guide, a member of the family that owns much of the Myvatn area,... More
