The best 8 days tour of our lives
Dec 2020 • Couples
Troll Expeditions exceeded our expectations. They are flexible for tour date changes in lieu of the pandemic. My husband and I are the only passengers for majority of the tour and they still proceeded without cancelling. Our tour guide, Ronan, is super nice, knowledgeable and entertaining. We learned a lot about Iceland and enjoyed the scenic views. #besttourguideever! We even have extra tours we did not expect (i.e Husavik, as we love the Eurovision Netflix film) and some hidden gems visited. I would recommend to book for tours/guides like Troll Expeditions, specially during winter, as the road conditions could get really really bad. On our way to Northern Iceland, we had some strong winds with snow and it feels safe to have a professional driving for you as we barely see the road. Tip: Snorkeling in Silfra is a must try! The clear views and snorkeling between tectonic plates is just amazing. We also enjoyed the Myvatn Nature Baths. Try dipping in their hot pools with a beer or wine. Super relaxing. You can also have add-ons in the Troll Expeditions tours aside from the touristic spots and nice sceneries of Iceland. This tour is definitely worth your every cent!

Great trip
Feb 2020
It was an excellent experience to visit Iceland in winter, thanks to Julien, he is a really great guide and also a responsible driver who showed the beauty of Iceland to us! Besides, though it's not in the program, he still took us to northern lights hunting during this tour, so we got to see northern light in person. That's really amazing!

You'd think beautiful nature is beautiful nature everywhere, but Iceland is something special. Our guide Carlos went out of his way to make everything as perfect as possible, in spite of harsh weather and coronavirus. We're certainly coming back.

Thanks Carlos for a wonderful tour !
Mar 2020 • Solo
I had a wonderful time. Carlos, our guide, was excellent. He knows the area very well. Carlos is very friendly and knowledgeable. We had a small group of 5 and we bonded together and with Carlos. We did feel like a family at the end and were very sad to say goodbye. I would highly recommend Carlos and the small group trip.

#Trolls.is #TeamRocky - Icelandic Saga March 2020
Mar 2020 • Friends
There are three main rules to take part to this trip: set, seatbelts and smiles!
This has been way far the most beautiful and adventurous trip of my life.
My wife and I are usually quite reluctant to organised trips, we booked only one week in advance with the 8 days winter trip, and we are still grateful for our choice.
Iceland is the land of ice and fire. It's authentic, honest and though with a very warm heart on the inside (up to 800°c!) same as their people.
I very believe that you can enjoy the island at its best in winter - snow, ice and frost are dressing the best places on the island.
Most importantly, we were blessed to be part of Trolls.is expedition together with the guide Rognvaldur (aka Rocky). He welcomed our group of 6 people on his motherland. He showed us unique places, especially out of the crowd of humans. Rocky'stories of ancient trolls in Iceland and great music let all of us fall in love with the Viking's culture.
My wife and I strongly recommend this experience (she is always right, trust me).
Set up your luggage and come to Iceland! Do you know why? Because you can!

Amazing Guide:)
We made the 8 day Tour through Iceland.
The whole experience was just amazing and every day we thought it couldn‘t get any better but it did.
We learnt so much about this beautiful country especially thanks to our guide Fannar. He knows so much about a variety of things and loves to share his knowledge. He tried to get us to know the culture a bit by playing icelandic music, the life around here and so on.
Without such a good guide we would have never enjoyed our tour as much.
We also did some fun stuff like building a snowman, sliding down a crater against another team, which was great to build a a companionship between to whole group.
Thank you so much.

Unforgettable Iceland thanks to Fannar
The 8 day tour with our guide Fannar was absolutely incredible! The tour itself is very well planned and lets you enjoy every beautiful place of Iceland but what made it so incredible was Fannar! During our long drives he told us so many interesting stories about the vikings, vulcanoes, the history of Iceland and so many more (including funny personal stories which made the places more special for us). He also made some extra stops and showed us little secret places, which mean a lot to him and it was so lovely! You really see that he loves doing a tour and doesn‘t want it to be like every other one!
I would recommend the tour to everyone and if your guide is him, you can already rely on an unforgettable tour!
Thank you so much for everything!

Feb 2020
Mountains, glaciers, volcanoes, craters, fissures, fjords, black sand beaches, diamond head beaches, nature baths, ice caves, lava caves - this incredible tour gave us an opportunity to experience all of the breathtaking wonder that Iceland has to offer. Pictures are gorgeous but nothing compares to being in the middle of it all, doing the unbelievable like hiking on a glacier or getting in your swimwear to relax in a geothermal bath with snow just a few feet away. Our amazing tour guide Rocky went above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience possible while keeping us safe - we were even hit with one of Iceland’s biggest storms in over a decade, but his perfect driving got us to our hotel safely even when it seemed Mother Nature had other plans.

The northern lights were the cherry on top of it all. While it’s not guaranteed that the lights will be visible during the trip, Rocky checked and tried every day, until eventually we got a beautiful display of the dancing aurora that we’ll remember for the rest of our lives.

With Iceland’s beautiful sights and Rocky’s joy-filled knowledge and focus on safety (“Seatbelts and smiles!”), this tour should be on the top of everyone’s list.

Amazing trip. Unforgettable Experience touring with Rocky
Feb 2020
A fantastic 8 days ring road Iceland Tour. Our tour guide Rocky made the whole trip light hearted, fun and insightful. Rocky is an excellent, outstanding, and experienced tour guide.
We experienced a strong snow storm on the first day of the tour, but Rocky was remarkable drove us safely to the hotel. Throughout the 8 days we never feel bored. He was incredibly knowledgeable and made us feel safe and reassured throughout the tour. We will well informed of the trips and the northern lights. This tour was absolutely awesome! We see so much and have such a great time. Thanks to Rocky, the best guide ever! And no doubt will recommend Troll Expeditions to others.
