Just got back from a 3 day South Coast tour. Our guide was Hilmar and he was absolutely wonderful. He was very patient and full of knowledge. He made frequent stops during the tour for restroom and food breaks, and still was able to follow a schedule where we could spend about 40 minutes at every destination. He was also the reason we were able to see the Northern lights. When we were in Skaftafell, he took out time after dinner to show us an area behind our hotel where we could probably catch the lights the best. When the lights came out, we were able to see them perfectly from the location he directed us to. He also so kindly came knocking at our doors when the lights came out to make sure we didn't miss it.
Arctic adventures valued our safety and switched our glacier hike day around with the glacier lagoon day because of the possibility of rainy/bad weather. We really appreciated that because that allowed us to see and do everything we had planned without running into problems. I was skeptical about a long journey in a van throughout the coast, however the views were BEAUTIFUL, the ride was smooth, and I could not stop looking out the window. One of the best guided trips I have taken! Would recommend to anyone wanting to see the south coast of Iceland!
