I think the best way to first experience Iceland is a day trip with Eskimos Iceland. We did two day tours with them after we first arrived with our small party of three women. Our first tour was through the lava caves and the Reykjanes peninsula with a stop at the blue lagoon. Our guide Baldur, was the best intro... More

First off, you should know that this company does not operate any tours. They are the “middle-men”. They can help you plan your trip (suggest tours depending on how long you’re going to be in Iceland based on your interests, budget, etc.) and book your trip with other companies. As far as I can tell, the service is free unless... More

Eskimos provided the pick up service from my hotel to the dogsledding adventure with Dogsledding Iceland. The very dapper-dressed and knowledgeable Tristan picked me up from my hotel with another couple and escorted us to the dogsledding base in good time. He ordered lunch for us to enjoy after our adventure as well as a stop off at Reykjavik's local... More

Eskimos did a great job of helping me plan a whirlwind weekend trip through Iceland! Thora helped us narrow down and select the perfect tours for our group and budget. Hlif, our day tour guide, was friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and patient! Not only did I see breathtaking waterfalls, go dogsledding, and hike a glacier, I learned an incredible amount of...

I purchased a package tour: Buri cave, Lobster Dinner & Northern Lights. Whilst corresponding with Heiðrún in regards of what I should purchase, Heiðrún stated that if the Northern Lights tour was canceled, we would be refunded for that. Turns out, it had to be canceled due to weather. No problem. However, the response I got about getting a partial... More

Hi Chairmain, Glad you enjoyed the tour. You did not try to reach us, you did reach us and we answered you. I will just copy your email conversation with Heiðrun for full transparency. “Hello there - as we were not able to do the Northern Lights Tour due to weather, are we eligible for a partial refund?” “Hi Charmain,...

We planned several day trips through Eskimos including dog sledding, the golden circle, atv'ing and a trip up to the volcano (just to name a few). Each guide we had was fantastic and knowledgable and I would recommend every trip we did to everyone. I cannot not wait to go back in the spring or summer and see what other... More

Excellent tour with a wonderful guide, Einar. Great knowledge of Icelandic history, folklore and lots of great stories. We experienced white out conditions in the Highlands but felt perfectly safe with him behind the wheel.

Eskimos provided us with our travel and tour guide for the day (20/03/2014). He was able to offer high extensive knowledge of the whole of Iceland before dropping us off to a mountain located cabin where we were able to take part in dog sledding (which I also highly recommend). After a traditional Icelandic pack lunch, including a giant cookie,... More

Whilst planning a weeks stay in Iceland i found eskimos on the internet. We decided to use them to book the various trips that we wanted to do whilst there. Thora was extremely helpful, advised us on the best activities for the children and managed to sort out everything for us; including recommending and booking restaurants that were good for... More
