I have nothing but good things to say about Discover Iceland and our tour. Even before we left for this tour, the team was excellent in keeping us updated and responding to our questions.
We went on the Mission Blue Ice tour this past weekend, a 3d2n trip from Reykjavik along the South shore to Jökulsárlón with plenty of stops in-between, and including two nights in a hotel in the South. We had the pleasure of being guided/driven around these three days by Gummi in ‘Hey’ and we were joined by another couple. We all got along so well, it felt like a family road trip, and I was quite sad to say goodbye at the end of this tour.
We visited an incredible amount of stops during this tour but the highlights for me were the ice caves, Gljúfrafoss, Svínafellsjökull and Secret Lagoon. Even though we had so many things planned, never once did we feel rushed. This was very important to us, since my boyfriend’s a photographer and takes his time taking in the sights! Plus, I took my time walking around the ice as I’m not very sure-footed. They provide crampons for people who need a little extra help like me! I also loved watching Gummi drive the jeep off-road through snow and ice and water streams, and never once felt unsafe. Unfortunately, no northern lights were visible during these two nights.
I highly recommend this tour as I really enjoyed every single moment. We took a Golden Circle tour with another company and that was such a letdown. We’ll be sure to book with Discover Iceland again in the future!
