I did the yoga and hiking week - which was lovely. Andreas and Ulricha are both so friendly, the scenery was amazing and varied, the accomodation of good quality and the yoga facility excellent. A note of caution though - the hiking was not at all energetic! I was really hoping for some decent hikes of each day of the... More

Spending a week at the yoga retreat was one of the most delightful trips I have ever taken. The retreat was brand new when we visited, and construction was still in progress. It is located in the countryside, is beautiful, spacious, and peaceful with an expansive view. Our yoga group had classes in the morning, then lunch in a fantastic... More

We did a private dog scootering tour with Stefan while on a cruise. It was absolutely memorable and fabulous. We exchanged several emails with Andreas and Stefan to try to get off the ship as early as possible for the sake of the dogs. Stefan met us after we disembarked and took us up to the chateau (with a yoga... More

This was such an incredible experience. The team was fantastic, helpful, and informative. It was mildly terrifying at first, but it became exhilarating as the dogs sped down the mountain. The huskies were adorable, energetic, and gave us the ride of our life. It truly is a once in a lifetime experience, one that you definitely shouldn't miss out on!

It was a wow, wow, wow winter. We had great snow conditions all winter long even though we got one week of really high temperature! (above 10 celsius, 50 Farenheit) But with our experience and the huskies efforts we could even then conduct the tours under the totally sunny sky! When you choose Inspiration Iceland you can not only count... More

The dog sledding was great fun, however for the price I expected a little more. When we arrived and met the rest of the group (all together three couples and one child) we were piled in a 4wd with the dogs in the trailer behind. We drove up a highway and eventually stopped at a nice strip of snow which... More

Great to hear you enjoyed the dogsledding tour! How lucky we were to perform the dogsledding tour on snow on that sunny day at a temperature of 12 C (respectively 54 F)! This was a top perfomance of our huskies under extreme conditions since the huskies can only release heat through their paws and tongue. Luckily, we have a mountain... More

Our family trip to Northern Iceland was a dream come true. Andreas at Inspiration Iceland did an amazing job putting together a fabulous itinerary for our family. Our 2 day visit included a visit to Akureyri, dog sledding and touring the Lake Mytvan area. We learned and experienced so much yet also relaxed and recharged. Andreas did a great job... More

Great fun, original private tour unlike the big bus tours. The dog sledding was a once in a lifetime adventure not to be replicated. The dogs are treated very well and you could tell they were having a blast. Stephan was knowledgable of Icelandic history, culture, and geology. He took us to some off the beaten path adventures and expedited... More
