Ian collected us from the airport and didn’t seem at all miffed even after our 18 hour delay. As he drove us to their home in the beautiful area of Alftanes, Ian pointed out various points of interest and told interesting stories.
On arrival we were treated to the full Icelandic breakfast which was a taste of things to come. After we had settled in, Ian & Frances took us on a whistle stop tour of the local highlights and tourist spots. My husband enjoys rally driving in his spare time so was keen to see (and experience) the roads used in Rally Reykjavik, in which Ian participates every year. Ian will organise car hire, including 4 wheel drive (and all the camping gear if you wish) to enable you to experience the true Icelandic roads.
Frances is an excellent cook and can cater for all dietary requirements - be prepared to put weight on – even if you like walking!
They have an abundance of knowledge, books, guides and maps for your use and will help with anything they can. Frances even made a delicious chocolate cake for my husbands birthday which we wanted to take home with us on the plane.
All in all highly reecomended and we will be returning as soon as we can!
