“Amazing Tour!!!”

Nature Explorer Tours

Attraction details
Owner description: Nature Explorer offers tours in Iceland in Super Jeeps or Super-Trucks, which are modified 4x4s, which enable us to safely drive on glaciers and across unbridged rivers and reach otherwise inaccessible terrains, so that you can explore more of Iceland. We are a small, family run Icelandic tour operator, with a team of expert driverguides with background in Mt. Search & Rescue, 4x4 instructors and professional guides. We have a passion for Iceland and take pride sharing it in a personalized service on a variety of day and multi day tours. On our day tours out of Reykjavik we have the smallest group size in the industry, only 5 passengers per Super Jeep, but we can also cater to larger groups, and we offer private tours. We hope we can share your Iceland adventure.

“Amazing Tour!!!”
Reviewed April 30, 2011

We did the Golden Circle tour with our guide Ingi. Yes, it was expensive but totally worth it, especially after doing a bus tour the next day. This tour was just us and one other couple. We were gone for approx. 9 hours and saw all the sights - Gullfoss, Geysir,etc. Our guide was amazing! He told us so many interesting facts about Iceland and really made the day even more fun than it already was. Great company, great tour, great guide!!

“The Best Fun! Ever!”
Reviewed April 25, 2011

We have nothing but good things to say about this tour - it was beyond brilliant!!!
We went on the Golden Circle and glacier tour, and our highlights have to most definately be the Gullfoss waterfall (jaw droppingly beautiful!) and the ride up onto the glacier (the most fun ever ... even for a girl who didnt much like snow and ice before this!!!)
Our guide, was great - very knowlegable and didnt mind the more stupid questions, he gave us lots of info and then left us to explore!!
It just wouldn't have been the same on a coach trip! Its well worth the money!!!
Great company, Great guide and a Great day!!!

“Awesome. Loved every minute of it.”
Reviewed April 19, 2011

I used Nature Explorer Tours for a stag weekend booking and have to say the whole experience was absolutely fantastic. I was given several suggestions as to the various activities we would be able to do in Iceland and varying price ranges. We chose to go on the Golden Circle tour (in super trucks) with some snowmobiling thrown in. Our drivers were great guys and certainly knew their stuff. All in all, I would highly recommend Iceland as a holiday destination and thoroughly suggest you let Nature Explorer make the most of it.

“Great Guide, Amazing Northern Lights, Worth Every Penny!”
Reviewed February 27, 2011

One thing you have to realize about northern lights tours is your tour guide can't control the weather. That being said, our guide, Hawk, was very informed about the chances of us seeing the northern lights and gave us all the information we needed to decide to go or not. We trusted his expertise, and while fully aware we might not see the lights, decided to head out. We are so glad we did! We had absolutely amazing views of the lights, and we wouldn't have been able to take such great photos without Hawk's camera expertise. At about $400 US, some might think it's a little pricey, but to be honest, if seeing the northern lights is truly important to you (as it was to us), it is worth every penny. It is worth it to not be crammed into a giant tour bus with 50 other people, instead, we were in a comfortable, private jeep with a great guide and great conversation as we drove in search of the lights. Thank you Nature Explorer for a great night!

“A very cool Jeep and friendly knowledgeable driver but perhaps wasted on the golden circle tour.”
Reviewed January 9, 2011

I find this review quite hard to write as it was a positive experience - the Jeep's were very cool, and our driver / guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and overall we had a very nice day on the golden circle tour. I think the problem for me was that taking the Super Jeep seemed a bit redundant on this tour at this time of year. With the exception of the out and back trip onto the glacier and a bit of off roading thrown in towards the end for a bit of fun I think the same experience could be done in a car with a knowledgeable guide and probably for a lot less than around £700 that we paid for the day. The other thing is the Golden Circle Tour is OK but for me apart from the old parliament site at Thingvellir the rest doesn't quite live up to expectation. So Yes I would definitely recommend this company but in my opinion you don't need a jeep for the golden circle tour.
