Hi! The Northern Lights Season is from the end of August until mid-April so anywhere inside that time-frame is good :)

Iceland tour packages? (6 Replies)
We're planning on a 7-14 day trip to Iceland summer of 2006. We like the Odysseys Unlimited 11 day tour that limits the group to 12-24 people and the Iceland Saga Travel Gradn Iceland Hotel Tour for 14 days, 8-30 passengers. Has anyone taken tours with these companies? I'd appreciate feedback. Thanks.

Response fromTravellerPlus|
I'd take the Saga tour, if it were up to me. The Odyssey tour skips east and southeast Iceland, which means no Vatnajokull, Jokulsarlon or Skaftafell, all of which are quite fabulous. I suspect the tours are run by guides who work for Iceland Travel; the two tours I've taken with IT guides have been wonderful, the guides personable, friendly and patient. The buses are smaller, usually Volvo or Mercedes buses rather than the big North American style buses, as they need to be able to handle...More

Hi all, I will be travelling to Iceland from 25th September-9th October. I was thinking of sticking to two main areas-- Reykjavik and one other place, which is either Myvatn or Westfjords, but I can't really decide between the two. I've done some research, and it seems the sights in Westfjords are less accessible than in Myvatn the time of year I'll be going. I don't drive at all, and will be relying mostly on day tours for sight-seeing. 1)Would sight-seeing in Westfjords really be...More

I didn't visit the West Fjords but did visit Myvatn last year. It was one of my favourite parts of Iceland and I highly recommend it. Belinda http://users.xplornet.com/~mayer/trips/
