We booked the Northern Lights Exploration and Lake Myvatn Classic with Saga in Akureyri, and both were great experiences. Actually, we did three trips in all, since we didn't see the lights our first night out, and they gave us the second night for free. All our trips were guided by Armand, who was truly exceptional, in all ways. On... More

This year I was the 8th time in Akureyri. I spent there five full days. As in the last years before I selected Saga Travel for my tours. I made the day tours “Lake Mývatn Afternoon & Northern Lights” (with Bjarki), “Dettifoss Waterfall Super Jeep” (with Hylnur), “Culinary Coastline” (with Gísli) and “Lake Mývatn Classic” (with Ingimar). In the evening... More

Choosing Saga Travel to take us to the natural highlights around Akureyri was one of the highlights of our Iceland trip. Both Totti and Bo shared their immense knowledge about the both the lava cave and the geography of the Seffoss/Dettifoss/Hafragilsfoss system that it made up for the miserable weather. Bo also took the time to show us other highlights... More

The guide was extremely nice. Extremely knowledgeable and friendly. His name in short was Bo. We had a great adventurous physically challenging day in lofthellir cave. We highly recommend saga travel and highly recommend this particular tour. He didn't only take us to lofthellir but also other places to trek , waterfall ( for 5 minutes just passing by) etc,...

We had a great day with knowledgeable guide Björn who took us to 3 waterfalls, Sólheimajökull glacier, Vík, black sand beach, and bonus stop at an Icelandic horse farm. Terrible fog made it difficult to see landscapes from the car but did not interfere with the sights. Björn's local knowledge and great sense of humor were nice bonuses. We also... More

Thank you for your review about us here at Saga Travel. We'll take your note into consideration regarding the timing of the tour. I wanted to tell you that we do have a tour called Northern Lights Photography where we're out searching for the lights for around 4 hours so it's longer than the classic Northern Lights tour. Maybe you... More
