We went on the southern coast tour - we had looked at a bunch of tours online and this was one of the best reviewed so we went for it. We weren't disappointed. Our Icelandic tour guide was great (he went by the English name Simon, not sure how to spell his Icelandic name). During the drive, he gave us great info about Iceland's history, geology, and culture. The pickup / dropoff went quickly and smoothly. The bus was, I think, 20 people or so max - so it was nice not to be on a HUGE bus rolling into our destinations. Simon timed it well so we seemed to arrive and leave just before the big buses with loads of people. Highly recommended!

This trip was a surprise present from my husband and family for a combined birthday/anniversary present, so they really wanted it to be amazing! Upon arrival, we met Berglind, who was to be our tour guide for the whole week. We were very happy about that from a continuity perspective. And, as soon as we found out she loves dogs as much as we do, we knew we could fill up a weeks worth of conversation with just that :)
Berglind was a WEALTH of information. Any minuscule detail you might want to know about Iceland, from History the Vikings to Heavy Metal Icelandic Bands- Berglind knew the answer. We were doing a tour of the South Coast, and there is so much to learn!!! We were beyond impressed with this tour. We went from the airport right to The Blue Lagoon, because it was so early. It may be touristy, but there is nothing like this that I know of in the U.S. It is truly an extraordinary experience. We were there when it was still dark, and enjoyed the very magical feeling of the sun rising through the clouds in the horizon as well as the steam throughout the lagoon. I would highly recommend this time of day. From the Lagoon we went to Reykjavik. Berglind took us all around the area to show us unique spots, and explained local folklore...her sense of humor and pride in her country come through in every conversation!
From Reykavik, we went to such stunning sights as the Kerid Crater...but what made our time with Berglind way better than your average tour, is that she wants you to see the REAL Iceland...ALL the places you would miss on a regular cookie cutter tour. She took us to the Fridheimer Farm and restaurant which is beautifully set inside a geothermal greenhouse. I don't want to give too much detail away, but it's not like anything you've ever seen. We continued to the Efstidalur Farm, which was high on hill and incredibly bucolic. You are met by the most beautiful dog who just wants you to throw a rock to her over and over. They are a hotel as well, and are famous for their ice cream. Again, these are the places Berglind could take us that we would never experience on another kind of tour. We went to Laugarvatn which is not only Berglind's hometown, but it is home to one of the most historic hot springs called Vigdalaug which dates back to the year 1000. We learned how the local residents bake rye bread right in the ground by the ocean because of the geothermal pits, and were able to meet and break bread with Berglind's Mom!!
You tour all the great, famous waterfalls, the black beach, the basalt columns, the legendary volcanos, the bridge between the continents... all the wonderful tour book highlights! But it is when you get to visit a beautiful local yarn shop (Pingborg), have the most delicious bowl of fish soup at a hidden harbor side gem (Bryggjan) or hear a legend about why the Reykjanes Peninsula is haunted by a ghost named Gunna that this tour shines the brightest. You'll find out the secret Icelandic celebratory drink which is a marriage of Egils Malt Extrakt and Egils Appelsin and maybe be able to snack on some carefully sourced Laufabraud!!
Again, all of these unique, special details were due to the one on one experience with our amazing guide. We can't wait to go back, and you can bet we will make sure to check when Berglind is available before we make any plans!! Our thanks to Geo Tours Iceland, and Berglind for the most magical trip ever!!

P.S. Petta Reddast!!!

We did two back to back tours with Oskar - one to the Golden Circle and one to the South Coast. We saw so many beautiful places and learned so much about Iceland from him. We experienced gusting winds in the south and Oskar drove very carefully. He tailored the itinerary according to weather conditions and when we didn't have our bathing suits for a dip in the secret lagoon he was ready with an alternative visit to the volcano crater Kerid, which we really enjoyed, especially as we had already been to the Blue Lagoon and were happy to see something a little different. By the end of our two tours we considered Oskar a special friend, and he even came and drove our family to the airport at the end of our stay. I cannot recommend his tours enough. Oskar went above and beyond to make our visit to Iceland memorable.

Hi Susanna and thank you so much for the review. It make a big difference for us when our guests give them selves the time to write us a review. Oskar is a great guide like all our other guides, but we are truly happy you managed to bond a little and have a friend in Iceland now. We will make sure Oskar will get the compliment from you. Best regards and hopefully we will see you again. Hordur.
