We pre-booked a Northern Lights night tour before arriving; the day of that tour, after visiting the booking office, we also decided to book the 8-9 hour tour going out to Lake Myvatn area... Both of these tours were really superb, and worth the prices. The northern lights tour began with bus pickup around 9pm at the Kea Hotel; a... More

My daughter and I knew that we wanted to experience some of Iceland's Highlands, the remote and rugged region accessible only by hefty 4-wheel drive vehicles. Best to take a tour there, so we arranged a 12-hour jeep tour to the Askja Caldera with Saga Tours. We had a fantastic FULL DAY with Linnard, our guide from the company. He... More

Where to start with the positive feedback, The tours I did while staying in Akureyri were the northern lights tour, the waterfall dettifoss super jeep tour. A shout out to both the tour guides I had, Gísli (Number 1), Hlynur (Icefit). All the staff make you feel like it's going to be a great day/night, you can feel that they... More

I took a tour (The Lake Myvatn Classic) from Akureyri with my friend and we had an amazing time. From Curbside pickup and an amazing guide, from the beginning of the day to it's completion, this tour was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable and was a safe winter driver. He told us about Iceland, the surrounding area, and ofcourse... More

Despite the humorous title (I came up with it and thought it would be a shame not to post it), the biggest disappointment from our Northern Lights tour came not from the unfortunate weather (which we understand is not Saga's fault). I will get to “the great disappointment” later in my review. But first, the guide we had our first... More

We spent from the 23rd to 26th in Akureyri part of a tour organised by the excellent Nordic Visitor. They booked us three tours with Saga Travel: Lake Myvatn, Superjeeps to Dettifoss and of course northern lights. The weather was pretty extreme, down to -22C, windy and lots of snow. It made our stay both magical and exciting. We can't... More

The tour was amazing, they start it right in time and they took us to see the northern lights in really nice places, far way from the city lights. It was a really joyfull experience with hot cocoa at the end of the trip. I definitely recommend this guys :)
