My son and I embarked on a 12 hour super jeep tour to the Askja crater last month. The experience was a most memorable one and definitely worth the expense and the length of the trip. We forded rivers, visited waterfalls, drove 200 km over twisty and turning roads through the lava fields and eventually donned snowshoes to reach our... More

I did the jeep day trip to the lake Askja and Viti. We had several stops on the way at waterfalls, canyons and a historic cave of a famous icelandic villain, and our driver/guide provided us interesting information about the sights. The road is bumpy and you have to cross several shallow rivers, so it is easier to book a... More

We returned from Iceland last week after a Eleven Day Trip. We traversed the Ring road from Reyjavik to Akureyi. The holiday was planned by my wife with Saga Travels. They suggested and designed the holiday as if it was a gift with various boxes and peel after peel. The wonder and amazement started from the moment go. The Guides... More

I spent 5 days in Iceland. The highlight of my trip was my tour with Saga travel. We started in Reykjavik and did the Golden Circle which was great but then we took off and went through the the highlands and ended our day on the north coast of the country and then flew back to Reykjavik. The trip exceeded... More

We have joined two consecutive tours arranged by Saga Travel - Lake Nyvatn & Midnight Sun (Golden Circle) tours. Both are amazing especially the midnight sun's one. We stayed at Reykjavik and flew to the north in day 1 early morning. The team helped us to arrange flight and we joined the tour at the airport. We got warm welcome... More

I went on the Askja Caldera tour with Dotti and cannot say enough good things about the trip, even though the weather was not ideal (we got snowed on even though it was July!). Dotti's expertise and knowledge of how to traverse the terrain as well as the history of the Askja Caldera and the surrounding area was extensive. Our... More

Thanks Saga Travel for this tour in Lofthellir Cave! This place is really amazing and our guide Dotti contributed a lot to this good moment, detailed information concerning the landscape and its history but also many legends concerning Elfes and Trolls, another part of Iceland! Celine and Pelle

Saga Travel provides excellent local guides for hikes in the area. Our guide, Toti, was friendly, knowledgable, considerate of hiker pace and providing local interest. Use this great local travel service for your sightseeing in this part of Iceland; a family run business.

I have only good things to say about Saga Travel crew and specially Inga Bjork. She was super nice and available to help since I was planning the trip before arriving in Iceland. She helped not only with the planning of the tours Saga Travel does, but she helped planning other things in the North area, and even out of... More
