We had a rental car with a blown tire; drove two hours to Hofn where we hoped to buy a replacement. As it happens, Brando runs one of the two tire shops in Hofn. He was so very helpful and friendly. After searching diligently in...More

We booked Eagle Air's "Splendid Simplicity" tour, which included a flight from the domestic airport over to Hofn, a visit to Jokulsarlon (the glacier lagoon) and a visit to a glacier. I guess Eagle contracts out to Vatnajokull Travel, and our guide, Sindri, was at...More

We cannot speak highly enough of the service that Brando and his company gave. We were met at the airport and taken on a tour round Hofn before going to our hotel. The next day Brado took us to the glacier. He was so helpful,...More

Godbrandur and his team were very helpful, I was taken on a "guided tour" of the region, then hired a car to explore some more. It was a real treat to be given some "insider knowledge" of the area, and I would return to Hofn...More

I happened to be in great need for transportation from Hofn and contacted Gudbrandur (a.k.a Brando) at Vatnajokull Travel. He set me up with a car for a very reasonable price and the transaction was an absolute delight. I give Vatnajokull Travel (and Mr Brando)...More

Counting them as one, Vatnajokull and Jokulsarlon are now in my top two favorite places in Iceland--and I love ALL of Iceland! I had to change my round-trip Reykjavik-Hofn booking because of a conflict and Brando didn't hesitate or impose any penalties. I was so...More

When we arrived in Hofn, it quickly became apparent that we had booked an unsuitable tour, as the booking agent (Nordic visitor) had provided little information, and we felt misled by the suitability of the tour for families. Vatnajokull staff quickly responded to our concerns,...More
