During the first week of August, my friend and I took the Iceland Complete Tour with Jens Olafsson from Fun Travel. In the comfortable van, Jens drove the small group, we all agreed a plus, to varied and interesting places around the island. A knowledgeable and careful driver, he anticipated our need to take frequent breaks and made us aware of any issues we might encounter. Occasionally, Jens would read to us an Icelandic folktale. With cameras in hand, we started with key city sites. After this, we began our travels, experiencing many breathtaking wonders of nature such as glaciers, miles of old lava, an active volcano, and many magnificent waterfalls. Art was abundant, giving us a museum on the go. We also observed the evolution of the architecture: turf covered houses to contemporary high-rises in Reykjavik. Accommodations were good as a whole. Two guest houses were fair, others very good, and the last one, a hotel in Reykjavik, was excellent. The food was always well prepared and delicious. It was too early in the season to see the Northern Lights. However, the weather was wonderful; but we were glad we packed a protective jacket, and a hat. I do wish I had taken my hiking stick. Traveling rewards and engages the mind. My friend and I were glad we chose this interesting and memorable tour. Frances Perdue Franklin, Kentucky

My first contact was by e-mail, and he was not sure he was going to offer the last 10-Day Complete ring island tour, on 17 SEPT 2021. Kindly, Jens offered the group tour for just the 2 of us, whether anyone else joined or not. Sis and I were going to cruise around Iceland if he was not able to offer tour, but I really wanted to experience the vastness of Iceland. So, just 5 weeks after my initial contact with Jens, my sister and I landed, excited to begin our island tour the next day. Owner, Jens met us at Reykjavik’s Hotel Klettur 8AM that morning to introduce us to Dori, our driver/guide for the next 8 days. Jens and Dori were in contact during the tour, and, once Jens had to emergently change an overnight accommodation due to Orange level weather event of gale force winds, snow, sleet and ice, which prevented further travel that day by noon. Dori, our tour guide/driver provided new experiences every day and shared stories about Iceland, and some were even true. We learned so much about Iceland’s history, geology, weather, nature, culture and incredible people. We hiked to glaciers under volcanos, geysers and mud pots, lava flow fields and formations, and did I say waterfalls! We hiked to many waterfalls (not all 3000)! We hiked up some craters. We hiked along and above black sand and black pebble beaches along the Atlantic Ocean where many basalt formations had formed. We drove in and out of fjords, up and down mountainous dirt and paved roads, and sometimes drove to a little sidebar waterfall Dori felt we may enjoy. Which we did. Dori would drive us to one spot to hike, and pick us up at the other end an hour later so we did not have to backtrack. And he got us back to the capitol in time for our COVID test, and we had the text results in less than 30 minutes, as we were checking into Hotel Klettur post-tour. Having now been to 69 countries, I usually fly internationally, rent a car to drive and experience the country independently. Since I do hours of research about any destination before I go, and read books in addition, it added to my experience, for I understood better what Dori was explaining and allowed for real conversation. But this experience in Iceland was even more than I had expected, in no small part because of Jens’ organized company, the planned itinerary, the unique variety of farmstead accommodations, the quality of food, and Dori. (Dori also brings guests to Greenland for a few day extension thru his business). There is no way my sister and I would have enjoyed Iceland, nor seen as much, nor selected the accommodations on our own. And I would never travel by bus tours! I was essential and much more enjoyable to hire this small tour company so we could just hike, post travel blogs between sites, enjoy the guesthouses and the dinners and breakfasts, and meet other travelers and locals. I already had a friend ask for Jens’ contact info, for him and his wife to do the same tour as they followed our posts, photos and videos on Facebook the whole trip.

There is no better way to see Iceland. I joined Iceland Complete in 10 days. Our guide Dori was fantastic, knowledgeable and accommodating and making sure we saw everything!! Beautiful and breathtaking scenery along the coast as well highlands. Enjoyed every bit of it from volcanoes, beaches, geysers, waterfalls, hot springs and other remote gems. Good accommodation at unique places like farms, guesthouses and golf course. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms and good food too. So happy to have joined this tour and made new friends. Highly recommended.

Thank you Fun Travel for a memorable trip around the ring of Iceland! We are so impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of our guide Dori, he has the ability to lead a group of 10 while also being a background presence - there as needed and not intrusive. He was on board with a "detour" to the Lava Center upon request - a wonderful educational start to our whole experience. After a few days we joked with him about "a short walk" to sites (usually not). Diamond Beach and the glacier was one of the highlights of the tour. And when touring the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, we saw a reverse waterfall, what a thrill! The meals at the farm stays were delicious and nutricious, and the rooms, with some bathroom "quirks" (at least for us Americans) were clean and comfortable. This was a bucket list trip and one we will cherish. Thanks.
