We have just returned from iceland and used 4 different tour operators during our trip based on previous trip advisor reviews. Of the four, Saga were the best by far and in hindsight we wished we had used them to arrange all our excursions. They were professional, courteous, prompt with enquiries and excellent value for money. We booked the waterfall... More

I visited Akureyri in January 2015 and had the distinct pleasure of being squired about by the pleasant, knowledgeable guides at Saga travel. All of the guides are passionate about their jobs and love the area so much, it is clear that they are excited to introduce us to this northern paradise. Saga was also very easy to work with...

We recently visited Akureyri, Iceland and took a tour with Saga tours. The tour was excellent in every way. We love adventure vacations and this exceeded our expectations. Our guide was outstanding and demonstrated a keen knowledge of the history, geology, and local folklore of the region. Paul's driving was incredible over the ice coated roads and he took special...

We had a wonderful tour with our guide Anton, who was a local and knew the local highlights and roads, which was perfect, as the roads and countryside was covered in snow. It was great to see the geo-thermal sights, the lava fields, tale a warm dip in the thermal pool while snow froze on your head, and have a... More

My wife and I recently visited Iceland and while in Akureyri we did two excursions with Saga Travel: Lake Myvatn & The Northern Lights Tour and the Dettifoss Waterfall - Super Jeep Tour. We were absolutely blown away by the level of quality and professionalism that we received. Both tours were smaller in size, the tours were quite extensive, the... More

If you're looking for something different, check out this tour. It's a bit of everything - geology, exploration, adventure, off-roading. in this tour, the journey is as important as the destination. You rarely travel on paved roads. Most of the trip is spent in a super jeep getting to the entrance of the cave. But it's a great journey. Amazing... More

So happy that we upgraded from the Northern Lights tour to this one. Our guide, Gisly, kept the tour information-filled and well-paced (both by serious doses of humour, local lore, and his stellar skills with the Super Jeep.) The scenery was incredible at each stop along the way--winter otherworldly. We had gotten a lot of exercise in by the time... More

My husband and I went to Iceland on Icelandair and part of the tour was a Northern Light tour in Akureyi. We decided to upgrade the tour which was easily done and so glad we did it. The tour took us up the fjord, saw a waterfall, lava formations, mud pots as well as the lake. It included dinner with... More

My wife and I decided to go on a trip to Iceland in January. We were very hesitant at first to make this decicion. The experience was well worth it. We traveled to to Akureryi visiting the outdoor hotpool, enjoying the Northern lights and touring some smaller villiages on the extreme northerly tip of Iceland. The history of the towns... More
