I did a full day trip with my two young-adult daughters in late May 2023. The first part of the day involved a hike to and through a hidden lava cave. The second half was a hike to a secret thermal river in which our guide cooked us lunch (tomato soup and salmon) over a hot spring. We had both locations to ourselves. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable and handled all the planning and driving. An excellent way to see Iceland's natural beauty without being around myriad other tourists. Highly recommended.

Our friend Borgthor showed us around the south coast in a giant superjeep. He was the nicest guy we met the whole trip. He always told us cool things about where we were going, helped us with our luggage, and made sure we were well fed and taken care of. We saw so many things including the northern lights! Thor had an excellent knowledge of cameras so we were also able to get some cool shots as well. 10/10 would recommend a tour with Icelandic adventures over a bus tour if possible. We did a bus tour the next day and we were missing the experience we had with our friend Thor. The bus tours were so rushed and boring. So glad we were able to do a tour with Icelandic adventure!!

Thank you so much Shauna for your nice words and good communication. Thor also gave you the highest praise as generally nice and fun guests. It was a pleasure helping you out with your Icelandic Adventure :) Cheers, Baddi

We participated in a coach tour of the Golden Circle with this company during a brief visit to Iceland. I could not have spent a better seven hours or so. Our guide was superb - informative, engaging, entertaining - bringing a wealth of knowledge, insight and passion for his country to enrich our experience. It was more of an interpretation of Iceland than a guide's commentary. Thoroughly recommend.

Baddi was my tour guide over 10 years ago for a winter adventure tour in Iceland. I had such an incredible experience I knew I had to go back and bring more friends to experience the beauty and uniqueness of this country. I was so thankful that we stayed connected all of these years as it was my dream to visit Iceland again but during the summer solstice, 24 hours of daylight. I told Baddi that we were up for any adventures but ideally wanted to avoid the touristy areas. Baddi built a customized agenda which also allowed for some flexibility as needed depending on weather and how much activity we wanted. Our trip and experience exceeded our expectations!! Within four days, we explored the highlands including Landmannalaugar, saw countless waterfalls and ventured to the top of the most active volcano in Iceland. We also had a traditional and unique Icelandic experience staying with a lovely family on a horse farm which included a 2-hour horseback ride through the countryside. Baddi made us feel like Icelanders and family. He is extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture, very down to earth, and also has a wonderful sense of humor. I would only recommend Baddi and Icelandic Adventure!!

Thank you Robyn for a very flattering review <3 This really was a fun trip and we kind of managed to do 5 days in 4 as we had a lot of extra time in the early morning on your first day due to that flight SNAFU you guys had - turned out pretty nice in the end :) Luckily I still have a few authentic scenes and experiences to show you for your next time around ;) Looking forward to seeing you again, Cheers, Baddi

Thank you for your review, however I am afraid that you were not on a tour with us and it sounds like Yanis really would deserve to get this review at her site :) We share your love and passion for Iceland and our nature and history and wish you a fantastic continuous trip in our land of Ice and Fire.

We had the most unforgettable time with Baddi, we have no words to describe all the feelings we had during our days with him! We were a little group of 4 and every penny was worth it. We felt like the kings of iceland in Baddis super truck. We crossed breathtaking glaciar rivers and stay in the most local hotels and houses we could have possibly imagined. Our top day was the day we did the 4x4 experience with a super lamb lunch with fire in a cave at the top of a mountain. Baddi is a great guide with a wonderful personality making us feel relaxed and happy all the way. He wouldn’t stop until we get every single interesting spot of Iceland covered. And of course he is local and know every story you need to know about the country and its history.

Thank you so much for everything, we will be back 😊

Thanks to Baddi we were able to get everything packed into just a few days. His knowledge of the area, his really cool vehicle and his relationships with the other tour companies is what made our trip so fantastic. The weather is always an issue in Iceland and Baddi was able to re-arrange our day so that we were able to fit in all the things that we wanted to see. When we return to Iceland, we will ONLY work with Baddi. My husband and I enjoyed this company but my children (young adults) really enjoyed talking with him. We all really learned more about Iceland than we were thought we would! Baddi was also a wonderful photographer; he actually took pictures and sent them to us. He also got us to see the Northern Lights!

My wife, fourteen year old daughter and I decided to visit Iceland in the early spring of 2017. What a fantastic decision it was.

We spent 5 days and four nights in Iceland and had the pleasure of having Baddi guide us each day while there. Without a doubt, Baddi's knowledge of all subjects from history, culture, geography and all thing nature were second to none. He instantly made my family feel as if we were visiting an old friend. He was very accommodating, flexible and provided superb advice on what to see and where to spend our time. He even went out of his way to make sure my wife was extra comfortable when some of our hiking excursions became a little bit of a challenge for her.

We loved every minute we spent in Iceland and i am strongly suggesting to all of my extended family and friends to visit and make sure they use Icelandic Adventures. I plan on going back in the future and exploring further. Iceland is truly one of the planets wonders and Baddi's professionalism and experience made the trip for us.

My daughter and I spent three days in Iceland and wanted to make the most of our time, so booked a day with Baddi. Because our time was limited we wanted to be accompanied by someone who really knew about all aspects of this incredible country, and that's exactly what we got.
Collected promptly, and settled into a huge, comfortable, clean jeep, we were enthralled by his depth of knowledge as we sped along from one amazing natural phenomenon to the next. He had passion and pride in all things Icelandic and covered politics, geography, geology, history and mythology, making it all so interesting.
He was very flexible about where we wanted to go, but tempered that with suggestions which were spot on.
Our trip lasted over eight hours, but flew by, and we returned to our hotel, not only much more knowledgeable, but feeling as though we had made a friend.
On discussing and comparing sightseeing methods later with other visitors we found that ours had been the best option. Hiring a car was cheaper, but the people who used this form of transport were limited to guide books and maps for their knowledge and didn't have the fabulous wealth of experience and knowledge that we came away with. Other tailor made day trips were more expensive and didn't seem to have the wealth of involvement in the country that we had with Baddi.
We took coach tours for the Blue Lagoon and Golden Circle, and they were fine, but for an in depth fabulous day to get into the real Iceland, treat yourself to a day with Baddi. You won't regret it !!

Thank you so much Barbara for your kind words - I had a great day with you girls. It's such a treat to travel with someone like yourselves with such passion for everything you were experiencing. Hope to see you again soon - either up here or in Ireland :) Cheers, Baddi

What a great experience we had with Baddi.... my sister and I traveled to Iceland for a weeks visit and met up with my 16 year old nephew at the conclusion of his two week backpacking tour of Iceland. The first couple days we took bus tours which we thought were great and then we spent two days with Baddi as our tour guide. An experience like no other.... amazing. We hiked, we toured, we saw so much... and I agree with the other reviewers it was like we were accopmanied by an old friend. I highly recommend Baddi... it helped us have the experience of a lifetime. I can’t wait to go back and bring my husband and daughter !!!😀
