My mother and I joined a South Coast tour on the spur of the moment, and were not disappointed. Guide Pall was knowledgeable, friendly, and a good driver. The group was nice and small; the van comfortable. And of course the tour destinations were wonderful in their own right! We enjoyed the flexibility in time we could spend at each... More

We took the tour from Akureyri to the lofthellir. We were picked up directly from our hotel - we only organised this at the last minute,but it was not a problem. The tour involves an hour's drive to Mývatn where the is another pick up, so you might be better doing the tour from there. However, the experience was fantastic,... More

We had the most enjoyable and relaxing day with Saga Travel! We were unable to rent a car so had to change our plans and do a guided tour instead. I was expecting a boring and touristy thing but I was wrong! I was with my mum and we were just 5 on the tour, so we could adjust the... More

I booked this Akureyri tour through Wild Westfjords online when I was still in the States. The online process was easy and it assured me that I would have reserved spots for my husband and myself. The guide was very easy to understand and the vehicle exceeded our expectations. We went to places that the cruise ship passengers did not... More

We have really enjoyed our day tour because of our knowledgeable guide Erlingur. He has enlightened us by sharing his knowledge on geology and history. He has also made the day more personal by showing us his beautiful family farm by the lake, eating with us so that he could explain the local cuisine, and even having a dip in... More

I normally don't do tours, but on a short #mystopover with Icelandair I wanted to fit in a lot. I took the Diamond Circle Tour. Plusses: normal size 4x4 with driver/guide; only three passengers, so not bogged down by huge group; knowledgeable guide; covered a lot of sights and distance, including Godafoss, the magnificent Detifoss, other falls, singing rocks that...

Wow – what a day! Our guide Bjarki picked us up in the jeep at 7.45 a.m. and from that moment to the time he dropped us off about 11 hours later every second of the day was amazing. There is such a diversity of places visited on this itinerary – bubbling mud pools, stunning waterfalls, canyons, lush valleys, beautiful... More
