“golden Circle and Southwest coast(two different full day excursions)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Along with four freinds. all of whom do a fair amount of travel, we booked two days with Stephan and Icelan Off Road. And I would be hard pressed to say which day was better. Stephan is incredibly smart and insightful on so many topics, from geology to politics to food to film to sports--and not just about Iceland! He truly was a big part of the successful, fun days of seeing so much diversity in landscape and so much variety in settings. He was flexible and responsive to our preferences; he paced us well,made surew e had fun and he ensured we had some great meals along the way. At the end of one day, he even brought us to a fabulous bakery for us to stock up for the day we'd be on our own.

When I go back to Iceland I will ensure I reach out to Stephan again. See Iceland and see it right, with Iceland Off Road !

“Outstanding Tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Four friends and I used Icelandoffroad.is for a tour of the Golden Circle and South Coast over two days. It was a truly outstanding tour. Guided by Stefan who educated us on the history, geology, social and politics of Iceland. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a real Icelandic experience, it is a total package.
Stefan takes the tour seriously and gives you that extra special treatment and out of the way places you will not get on other tours, like a remote beach of volcanic rock and black sand.
This is the tour you should use

“Fantastic private tour guide!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

My husband and I just returned from Iceland and had a fantastic time touring with Stefan. We went to some remote places that were breathtakingly beautiful and enjoyed every minute. Most of the places we saw can only be reached with an off road vehicle and an experienced driver. Stefan knows the terrain very well. Even though we seemed to be in the middle of nowhere, he knew exactly where he was.

Stefan was very flexible with the schedule, accommodated our needs and preferences, and made great recommendations based on the types of activities we like. He knows his country well. He is quite knowledgeable about Iceland history, sagas, culture, food, flora, fauna, volcanic activity, etc.

We've been fortunate to have experienced a number of guides during our travels and Stefan is our favorite. It was such a pleasure traveling with him.

“High quality with low price, hidden good company”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

Amazing tour!!!!! cant miss caving, though it doesnt spunf tempting at first hehe.The tour guide is friendly and full of passion, also express well understanding towards the cave we went in since he grew up from there, it's like his backyard. Though it is not a big company, it has high quality that we are able to get to know more about lava and gain interesting knowledge, instead of following a tour guide with a big groups like those bigger companies. Awesome caving tour!!!!!!

We booked the lava cave tour two hours before depature. The trip was great and Stefan was a very knowledgable and passionate guide. The cave was natural, unspoiled and unique. I highly recommend this company.
