We used Hidden Iceland to arrange and guide a weeklong trip for 14 family members ranging in age from 4 to 74. Karolina was involved in the detailed planning of the trip and was very responsive every step of the way. She selected hotels and activities and offered options. She also helped individual family members set up other tours prior to the main tour which was of Golden Circle and South Iceland. Fannar was our driver and guide, and he was fantastic. He knows a lot of Iceland history, was great with the kids and was easy to work with throughout the trip. Highlights were super jeeps, horseback tours, glacier hikes and ice lagoon boat trip. We all had a good time and saw some amazing sights, especially waterfalls. Food and hotels were very good too. Hidden Iceland may have been more expensive than other options, but it is hard to tell. We certainly got our money's worth.

We were only able to take one tour and were so happy we chose the Fire and Ice tour. Our guide Simon taught us so much about Iceland’s geography, history, culture, and geology. The sights were breathtaking, and we had adequate time at each location to enjoy and take pictures. It exceeded our expectations. Also, Hidden Iceland was very responsive to questions by email and phone prior to the tour, which I appreciated.

Highly recommended. There were 5 of us plus 5 others in a 12 seater minibus. Very comfortable. The driver/guide Einar was excellent. He has the rare ability of anticipating needs and also not overdoing the commentary aspect. The highlight for me was the lunch in the Tomato Greenhouse which was excellent without being too filling.

That's great to hear. And having only 5 in a 12 seat vehicle is always nice too. Very lucky. Einar is a wonderful guide and as you said, his ability to anticipate needs before they occur is very special. Thanks and come back any time.

I attended the Golden Circle Platinum tour on 20th June 2020. Our guide Simon was super friendly and had a great sense of humour. I really appreciated hearing some of Simons anecdotal stories, as well as his troll tail about the hole in the rocks (I’ve been telling everyone this story since!). Simon went out of his way to make sure everyone was comfortable and relaxed on the tour and we had a fabulous day.

The tour itself was great, especially since we had such good weather! The secret lagoon was quiet first thing in the morning giving us chance to relax in peace in the morning. The food at the tomato farm was fabulous, I had the Ravioli and would absolutely recommend. After this we made a couple of impromptu stops along the way visiting an extra waterfall and spending some off the beaten track in the Icelandic wilderness. Although it’s a long day, it is well worth it for the experience. Hidden Iceland are an amazing tour company as the staff go above and beyond in all ways. I would highly recommend this tour.

Thank you again for another great review. The golden circle is such a great location to spend a longer day on. Simon always makes such a big effort to add extra stops and share some great stories with the group.

I went on the South Coast: Fire and Ice tour on 22nd June 2022. Our Guide Einar was very friendly and approachable from the get go. Some of my favourite things I learned from my trip were from Einar’s tales about folklore and mythology. Not to mention the endless stream of amazing food recommendations! Everyone seemed to be comfortable straight away and put at ease.

The tour itself was brilliant. We had plenty of time at each stop to take photos and soak up the atmosphere. We even made an extra stop to get a very special view point for the black sand beach, and with the weather being so wonderful, I think we had an amazing added extra.

Hi Casey, Thank you for such a great review of our south coast fire and ice tour with Einar. He really is a great storyteller and is always keen to add in other view points whenever he can. It sounds like an amazing day.

Hidden Iceland tour company is much smaller than others and Golden Circle tour with guide Simon was the best!! The reason why I chose Hidden Iceland was because of reviews and the max size (12)—no bus w/ 50+ tourists!!! Very informative, awesome tour!!

Thanks for the great review. Yeah, we agree. Any more than 12 people makes the trip just a little less personal than we would like so we like to keep it as small as possible. Happy to hear you had a good time with Simon.

Golden CircleTour – Hidden Iceland tour company
We enjoyed an excellent experience on a private Golden Circle Tour with superb guide, Fannar Andresson, through Hidden Iceland tour company, and we strongly recommend him and them. The Golden Circle tour concept is ubiquitous among Iceland tour companies, and offers a ‘greatest hits’ tour of classic Iceland sights, including glaciers, waterfalls, geysers, hot springs and tectonic plates. You can join a full-sized bus tour, or a smaller group vehicle, or a private guide in doing the Golden Circle. We opted for the most expensive option – the private tour – because experience has shown us that the smaller the group, the more ground you typically cover. Our guide, Fannar, picked us up in a new Toyota Land Cruiser with very impressive oversized tires, which are needed when traversing a glacier (something we didn’t do on our tour). He was an amicable, knowledgeable and engaging young man who was uniformly pleasant and professional during our long day together. He was a veritable font of knowledge about his country, it’s origins and it’s geography, and he enjoys sharing his knowledge with his clients. We began the tour by traveling to Pingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, where the initial formation of a governing body/parliment for Iceland occurred in 930, and we viewed where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet. We also visited Gullfoss, the second largest waterfall in Europe (the first is located in northern Iceland), which is an awe-inspiring sight to see. You can view the glaciers from this same location. We saw volcanos as we traveled to Geysir, the original geyser that all others are named after, and watched numerous eruptions. We saw incredible lava fields. We enjoyed a unique, all-tomato lunch at Frioheimar, a tomato greenhouse/restaurant that is a very popular stop. (Make sure you make reservations!) We visited a lakeside school where locals were baking bread by burying their loafs in thermal pits – quite a sight to see. We also stopped at a dairy farm, and enjoyed some fresh ice cream, before ending the day at Sky Lagoon, back in Reykjavik, for a nice hot soak.
It was a pleasure dealing with Anika and others at Hidden Iceland in planning our tour, and as I have said, Fannar was a fabulous guide who made the experience special for Catherine and me. If you’re considering this tour, give Fannar and Hidden Iceland a call – you won’t regret it. Thank you, Fannar & Hidden Iceland!

We had a wonderful experience with Hidden Iceland! They put together a perfect trip for my family based on our requests. They communicate well and respond quickly. Everything was taken care of as we moved quickly around the country. They were able to make changes quickly if requested. We saw things off the beaten path that we never would have seen if we had planned this ourselves.

My husband, his brother, his wife and I went on an 8 day self drive trip on the south part of Iceland arranged by Hidden Iceland. We hiked, we walk, we explored and most of all, had the most fantastic time. The hotels that Hidden Iceland booked for us were just perfect, very good rooms, great food and the staff really friendly. The tours selected for us were just perfect.

From the overall trip coordination, tours selection, constant communication with Unnur, the schedule itself and most of all the experience.... everything was absolutely perfect. Coordinate this tour with Hidden Iceland was the best decision we could have made and seriously we had an incredible trip. We love Iceland and we will definitely go back. We to thank Hidden Iceland and Unnur for provided us with such a dream trip.
