          Take the plunge and go!
          I can't say enough about this trip! It was our first time to Iceland and Vjeran made our visit memorable. He was an amazing guide with loads of tips, information and incredible stories. The ice caves were INCREDIBLE - it was worth every minute in the rain and sloppy snow/slush. Even though we got wet to the core, we would do it again in a heartbeat. The glaciers and waterfalls were mezmerizing - Vjeran knew which ones to stop at, how long to stay and even included some "extra" sights because he knew they were worth it, even if they might have been a little off the beaten path.

          Pure magic! :D
          It was incredible from start to finish. Our tour guide Vjeran put us at ease with his wit and charm, and made sure we got the most out of every single stop, including some amazing photos. The waterfalls were unreal, so so magical! And the ice caves were unreal. 100% recommend!!

          Amazing!
          Really cool Tour with a very nice diving instructor. She was very competent and informed us about all the important parts. It felt really save with her - snorkeling in 3 deg cold water - and the whole tour is just amazing. She even made photos of us for free and the hot chocolate in the end really helped to warm up. Most beautiful colors I've ever seen.

          Excellent experience
          We had a fantastic experience with Arctic Adventures doing a small van tour around parts of Iceland during mid-April 2024. They were super helpful with pre-vacation questions, the tour guide was extremely informative but didn't talk non-stop, and we saw--and were able to appreciate--so much more than we would have been able to had we rented a car and drove all around. This was my first pre-planned multi-day tour, and I wondered if we would feel rushed at each stop. Not a bit. Plenty of time in each location, along with valuable info/context from our guide. When we return to Iceland--and that's a "when", not an "if"--we'll gladly book with Arctic Adventures again.

          An awesome adventure
          This trip was absolutely awesome. Hjortur was our guide/driver and he was absolutely the best - super funny and we loved him! He was just as excited about seeing the lights as we were. He was always looking out the window or calling his colleagues looking for the lights. He all of a sudden pulled off road and told us to get out and omg there they were. It was a magical experience. We saw them 3 separate times and they looked different each time. It was just so cool. The hot chocolate was a really nice touch especially because we were so cold. We got back to the hotel at about 1:30am but it was so worth it! The photos were sent the next day and they were great. And there were even horses that came up to us at the first spot.

          Incredible Iceland Experience
          This tour was amazing! Our tour was led by Vjeran, and he was absolutely a core part of the experience. He kept us on track with all of the listed activities, but whenever we passed a cool spot (and had the time) he went out of his way to stop and provide information about how the spot was formed or why it was so cool/unique! This was supposed to be a once in a lifetime trip for us, but we fell in love with Iceland so much that we will absolutely be back again in the future! We would be thrilled to book again through Arctic adventures and we would follow Vjeran anywhere!

          I went on a number of tours with these people, and I really appreciate them taking us to the great places, that we would not have found on our own.

          A short but memorable swim
          Really loved this trip and the operators made us feel safe. It was not as scary as I thought. My group was the fastest through the breach ever, so we had more time in the lagoon.

          THEY LOST OUR PICTURES. DO NOT BOOK THIS TOUR. SINCE THEY CLAIM THE PHOTOS ARE FREE, THEY WILL NOT OFFER YOU A REFUND. THE PHOTOGRAPHER IS NEGLIGENT BY LOSING THE SD CARD. WE NOW HAVE NO PICTURES OF WHAT WE SAW that night.

          Aurora Tour
          It was beautiful night with less possibility to see the Northern light I arrived from Germany same day of the tour. Therefore the late night return from the tour made me tired.

          Snorkeling at the Silfra Fissure was an awesome experience! Our guide was Gabe, who was so welcoming, informative, and kind. The snorkeling trip is like a float down a lazy river with beautiful views into the center of the earth that you’ll never forget. The water was cold in April, but not unbearable. The equipment we were given did the job to keep us warm and dry. I, regrettably, adjusted my mask during the trip and I let water in. In my moment of slight panic Gabe immediately swam over to help me with it, and I was thankful to be able to continue the experience. He also got some great pictures of me and my brother in law. It was a highlight of my week in Iceland and I will recommend it to anyone able to do it!

          Amazing trip. Vjeran was our guide and was passionate about his home country, Iceland. His stories about the landscapes he took us too brought them to life. Would recommend this three day tour to anyone who wants to visit as much of Iceland as they can.

          The trip was AMAZING! Our tour guide Vjeran was so so good. He was very funny, kind and knowledgeable. You can tell he loves what he does and loves sharing Icelands beauty with others! It was so much fun and the most beautiful views I have ever seen.

        Do not book a tour with this company. In January, we reserved tickets for a two-day Northern Lights & Snæfellsnes Peninsula tour in April. The company canceled the tour on three days before it was scheduled. We had been looking forward to to this tour for months and planned our entire vacation around it, so we are unable to reschedule it.

        “It’s a fishing village. It’s small.” A typical comment from our tour guide who had never been to the sites on the tour. The tour bus rattled, leaked cold air, and had no working sound system.
        We were sadly disappointed with Arctic Adventures.

        It was our first trip to Iceland and Artic Adventures was recommended. Our guide Vjeran picked us up promptly and off we went in a small group. He went above and beyond to show us hidden areas/ additional areas that locals will visit. He was also very knowledgeable and approachable about culture of the Icelandic people. He told us the best spots for photos and truly enhanced the experience for everyone in the group.

        Very bad support from your operator. When the tour started the driver told us that there was an optional ice cave visit that had been sold by another operator. Half the tour had no idea about this option. We asked the driver if we could pay for this extra but he said we had to call the office. Several people on the tour called but the office refused to help saying to ask the driver. Basically it was a back and forth where we were left with no support. Additionally the driver seemed to not even know the itinerary instead announcing he was going to bring people back to Reykjavik at the end of the day (this was a 2 day tour). We asked if we were going to attempt to see the norther lights (as described in the itinerary) but he claimed he knew nothing about that. All in all this is a tour where they assume you are a one off customer so they don’t care to make it pleasant. Since there is no expectation of customer loyalty they can change things on a whim without customer support trying to make it right. Basically do not do this tour. The organization is very poorly arranged .

        THE BEST TOUR I’ve ever been on. Casper (Bob) our guide had such a friendly, sociable and passionate energy, making sure everyone had the smoothest and most enjoyable journey ever together. Although I was travelling solo, I really felt the family vibe and cannot recommend this tour more. Sights were incredible - I could stare out the window all day! Thankyou Casper 🙏

        The country was beautiful! Vjeran, our guide, was amazing and had a great personality. My husband said they should have Vjeran train all the guides. He knew the history and customs of his country and shared all kinds of fascinating information with our tour and kept us entertained during the bus rides. He warned our tour if there was anything we should be careful about an all of our stops. He was very personable and I think he knew everyone's first name on the first day. When we arrived at a particular location, he knew all the great photo locations and pointed them out. He said he was our selfie-stick and took great photos of the people on our tour. The only disappointment was that we didn't see the Northern Lights, but that is to be expected sometimes. Just gives us another reason to visit again....and hope we get Vjeran for our guide again.

        This tour was a great way to experience Iceland. Our tour guide Vjeran was so energetic and knowledgeable. He joined in on all the activities we did and took us to lots of extra places he found interesting. The tour itself was great because the peninsula wasn't very crowded this time of the year and offered lots of beautiful views. The weather did not cooperate for us to see the northern lights but was overall very good.

        Driver not a big talker, maybe because of his English level, the time in the bus was boring, not as in other tours I did where the driver had many interesting stories to share about Iceland. We missed some interesting stops, like a crack in the Mountain that looked amazing from the bus, the cave, not hotdog as the tour description promised... The tour was meant to be 11h as per description, after 8h we're back. Overall ok, but I wouldn't recommend the tour, it has nice spots but nothing spectacular as other areas in Iceland.

        Nice tour on the west coast of Iceland, the highlights of our tour was Barnafoss (beautiful waterfall which is not as crowdy as the waterfalls in the south or gullfoss), Arnastapi (nice village with beautiful coastline) and the horse riding which we did additional to the schedule. Nick the guide was friendly and a good driver, he did take pictures of us and gave us many information. In the evening of the first night we went out to see the Northern Lights, but unfortunately we didn’t see them (bad conditions).

        Negativ:
        The minibus made some troubles and had to be changed, that did cost us about an hour in Reykjavík
