Owner description: Helena Travel is a family run travel agency. All the staff at Helena Travel are informative, friendly and experienced guides and drivers. Iceland is a natural wonder over the summertime as well as over the wintertime with endless hidden places like caves, deserted farms. lighthouses, lakes and small towns. Helena Travel will take you to the lovely countryside surroundings to help you see Golden Circle, the South Coast, Thorsmork, waterfalls, glaciers, volcanoes and hot springs. These trips are tailor made for you. This winter we are going to specialize in Northern Light Tours. As this year, it is predicted that the northern light will be especially strong and visible, we will try and make your experience of the northern lights, the Icelandic winter and the Icelandic culture as memorable as possible. For this, we may even bring a bottle of Icelandic schnapps and hot chocolate - a truly brilliant combination!

We had a fantastic day out, climbing glaciers, walking along beaches and seeing a what Iceland has to offer. We stayed out all day (about 14 hours) and were given our own space when we wanted it. She would be a particularly excellent guide for those wanting to do photography, as she is a skilled artist and photographer herself.

We rang Helena Travel to check that the Northern Lights were likely to happen. She caalled back within 15 minutes and we were on for the tour! We were collected promptly in the SuperJeep - my husband and daughter loved this bit! and were driven away from the light of Reykjavik. We felt like adventurers - Helena was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and when we hit snow fall changed our route in order to get us the best view of the northern lights as possible. The Jeep was warm and comfy and even had a drop of schnapps! Helena was really helpful with taking photos of the lights and took some for us too which was great. It was a small, friendly, warm tour and would recommend to anyone. Thanks Helena!

We took two day tours with Helena; the South coast and the Snaeflessnes peninsula, and both were absolutely amazing. Helena went above and beyond to make sure we saw everything worth seeing. She was always very accomondating and took wonderful care of us. She really made the most of the time we had there and I will never forget this experience!

We booked a private super jeep tour with Helena which was a combination of the South Coast and some other stops. We had a slight miscommunication at the beginning, but Helena made every effort to make it right – and she did! What an amazing time we had with Helena!!! We had such a good time on the tour that we decided to book another tour with her for the following day. The 2 days that we spent with Helena were simply amazing and she truly made our trip to Iceland unforgettable.

Helena made every attempt to make this a great trip for us and made us feel like we were not missing a single thing. We couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide. She went out of her way to ensure that we got to see and do everything that we wanted. Suggested places to stop for some snacks and lunch (which were absolutely delicious). Any time that we wanted to stop to take pictures, she would find a spot to pull over and never had a problem doing so. Oh, almost forgot to mention the best part is that she also takes pictures while we are on the tour and will send them to you via a link – this is the first tour that I have been on that someone has done that and what a personal touch that is! She was so friendly and easy to talk to – we had such a great time with her.

I have been on many, many tours throughout my travels and I can honestly say that Helena is the first person that didn’t go by the “clock”. Her main concern was making sure that we saw everything that we planned to see, no matter how late we were running. The first day, we were out from 8:15 am and didn’t get back until 10:30 pm (we were originally planned to be back by 8:00pm), but she wanted to make additional stops and make sure we saw everything. Every other tour I was on – whether we saw something or not, they had to be back by a certain time and wouldn’t go out of their way or come back late. She definitely provides that personal service and goes out of her way to make your tour special and unforgettable.

If you are looking for a personalized tour that you will not forget, I definitely recommend booking with Helena. She truly will make your Iceland vacation memorable.

We decided to make South Shore trip during the winter time with Helena Travel - and.. it was amazing! Waterfalls, walk on Sólheimar Glacier, look at Eyjafjallajökull, black sand beach,... - you just have to see this!
Helena was very friendly, helpful (we were not prepared good enough - she even borrowed us her sweater and jacket!) and pleasantly talkative (a lot of information and also funny stories).

What I liked the most was really friendly - family atmosphere (you do not feel as a "standard tourist" during excursion) and her flexibility - when I suddenly spotted something amazing and wanted to take a picture - she would just stopped the car with the smile and waited until I took the picture..

I would recommend especially for those who do not like standard tourist excursions - but rather something more personal and friendly.
