Recently returned from a 6 day break in iceland. Firstly what a great Country. To make the most of our time there and to maximise the experience we decided to book a super jeep day trip through Nordic Visitor. Don't be put off by the price - take the hit, sit back and absorb one of the best days of your life. We decided against The Golden Circle (we did that by coach a couple of days later) and went for the Eyjafallajokull Exclusive. Our guide for the day was Borkur Hrolfsson - he was absolutely fantastic. The guy is Iceland. Enthusiastic, patient, informative and importantly for us laid back - after all you are on holiday. We saw the glasier at Gigjokull, fantastic waterfalls especially Seljalandsfoss, the amazing black beaches the lava flows from Eyjafjallajokill. All the time Borkur would pull over or shoot off road to show us another snipet of Icelandic life / scenery. Lunch was excellent (salted cod in an old farm). I've missed loads out - we were out for nearly 11 hours all in all an awesome day. We're both keen photogrpahers so he ensured we got to spots just as the light was at its best for that location. We did the Golden Circle by coach a couple of days later - it was very good but I'm very glad we chose to do the E15 Exclusive by super jeep and not the other way around. If you get a chance and want to see / experience something totally different do a super jeep tour and if possible use Borkur. I think you can also use www.tourguide.is to contact him. Money dictates but I'd love to return in October and maybe see the Northern Lights.
Thank you Alice & John
