We took a private tour (for four) with Discover Iceland & had an absolutely great day. The jeep AHA was very comfortable and our guide Erdin was very knowledgeable and interesting as well as being an excellent driver through the heavy snow as we travelled up the glacier to do the optional snowmobiling trip (we highly recommend doing this & having the hotdog & Icelandic beer afterwards!)
The weather lifted as we came down from the glacier and we had a wonderful tour of the golden circle highlights including the surprise of driving into a volcano crater at the end. Nothing was too much trouble for Erdin and we would absolutely recommend Discover Iceland tours to everyone - we will be back for more!

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!

I really enjoyed the Golden Circle and Snowmobile tour and it is a must for anyone visit Iceland. We had Heimir Einarsson and he is one of the best driver I have experienced. He know the super jeep well and drives very safely. He is great in driving on snow and glaciers. I especially enjoyed the snowmobile ride. You have to do it when visit during winter ! It's an amazing experience! Great driver, excellent itinerary and awesome snowmobile rides! Must engage Discover Iceland when you visit Reykjavik.

Really enjoyed this tour and would like to thank Óðinn for showing us around the Golden Circle (and driving us up a mountain!). He really went out of his way and took us to extra places - he didn't have to do that so thank you very much. Overall a really cool trip, we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Only disappointment was not being able to see the glacier as the weather wasn't ideal but that is the luck of the draw in Iceland! The 4x4 off-road Jeep tour is more expensive than some of the other options (a bus tour) but it's well worth it - a much smaller group, more comfortable, quicker, you go off road, up mountains covered in snow and it's more personable so if you can afford this option, take it! Thanks again Óðinn!

We were in Reykjavik in January for only a few days, and were fortunate enough to go on both the Golden Circle Tour with Kidde and the Northern Lights Hunt with "Hawk." Both were extremely knowledgable about their respective tours, and we had a fabulous time on both. Driving on the glacier on the first tour was like being on top of the world!! The drive was fun and we enjoyed the comraderie of the other two couples. A special treat was the surprise stop at the end of the greenhouse where tomatoes grow all year long! We were fortunate enough to see the Northern Lights on the hunt, and although it was really cold, it was an experience not to be forgotten.
Can't recommend these enough!!! And the hotel pick-up and drop-off were super convenient.
