We just returned from a fun adventure in Iceland. Many thanks to Rosa and Kristjan, for organizing, and re-organizing our itinerary. As a storm was to roll in, Kristjan made sure we fulfilled our goal to see as many of the sites and sounds as possible. We not only went to waterfalls, but we went inside and over as well!... More

We spent 6 days over New Years in Iceland on a private tour provided by Iceland Adventure. There were 4 of us--three around 30 and their mom fast approaching 60. All of us agree it was a fabulous vacation and Iceland Adventure gets most of the credit. From the hotels and meals they arranged to the touring.....everything was great. We... More

We have just returned from a fantastic trip to Iceland. Iceland Encounter and our excellent guide, Bryndis Bjornsdotter, made the experience extraordinary. The combination of perfectly coordinated tours and attractions; with the expertise and pleasurable company of Bryndis made this trip!!

It is always a gamble in choosing tour guides when traveling to foreign countries. I guess that is why TripAdvisor is so popular. However, in this case there is no better tour consultant to be found. We were a group of 44 tourists and each one of us loved every minute of our Iceland Encounter. Kristine (our guide) laid out... More

We worked with Erling to arrange a custom private 10 day tour based on their Glaciers and Waterfalls tour. It was in a word fabulous. Iceland is a beautiful and amazing country, We wanted an "outdoorsy" yet luxurious vacation and he delivered. We hiked glaciers, mountains, geothermal fields, seaside, etc. We saw stunning waterfalls and landscapes. It was beautiful and... More

When we decided to holiday in Iceland, it was difficult to know how to go about it. I of course had a look at TripAdvisor and notived that Iceland Encounters had not a single bad mark to its name. In fact not a single rating less than excellent. So I wrote to them and received a timely answer from KristÍn... More

We used Erling at Iceland Encounter to help us plan and organise a 6 day honeymoon in Iceland. We chose the Northern Lights tour and he adapted it for us to suit our requirements. We had a private 4x4 and guide to take us on an exploration through the Icelandic countryside. From the moment we arrived, everything ran like clockwork.... More

Erling was amazing. We saw all the amazing parts of Iceland and stayed in 3 excellent hotels. Our New Years Eve hotel room was amazing and right near the downtown fireworks. All the hotel managers knew Erling and we had the best views from our rooms. Our guide - Kristjian was great and the kids loved his "Monster Truck". Amazing... More

Our one-week experience with Iceland Encounter in late June confirms the rave reviews they have been getting. We were a party of 4, ages ranging from 16 to 80, and our guide Erling, a co-owner of the company, adapted their Glaciers & Waterfalls tour to our interests and capabilities. Our adventures included hiking among hot springs and above waterfalls, rafting,... More
