“An Amazing Day”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

The day started at 8am when Guðjón collected us from the hotel for an adventure that lasted over 12 hours on the South Shore of Iceland and to the Katla glacier, with many jaw dropping sights and experiences along the way. Our host combined the super jeep off road thrills, amazing natural sights, insights into life in Iceland and all personalised using his own family history. Needless to say, we were taken to places where few visitors to the island rarely see and witnessed the splendid natural grandeur and remoteness of Iceland. Guðjón is the perfect host and has put together an extremely well balanced adventure from a "different planet". All delivered with a real passion for his home, and with great humour.
If you have the good fortune to be able to experience this day, you won't forget it !!

One of the best vacation experiences ever. We started with a departure from the hotel in Reykjavik in a extra-big wheel truck, by Guðjón of Katlatrack Tours. We drove east towards some of the most beautiful parts of Iceland that only a few lucky people ever get to see. Beautiful waterfalls, black sand beaches, light house, and a delicious lunch in the village Vik. After a brief history lesson in the local volcano museum, we hit the road towards the volcano and glacier....ok perhaps we didn't stay on the road for long. Before we knew it we were gliding across a snow covered lava field towards to fresh snow covered glacier. Once at the top, we explored the untouched fresh snow. Each step of the trip, our guide Guðjón, filled us in on all the history, sites, and folklore. He kept us entertained with his stories and thrilled with off road ride. I can't wait for our next trip to Iceland and another Katlatrack tour.

“Katlatrack shows you Iceland!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

From the beginning of the trip to the end, we saw Iceland as it was meant to be seen. This isn't something you watch from a big bus, you experience it in a giant Jeep - just check out thier facebook page. I highly recommend the trip - from the glacier visit, the waterfalls, black beaches and of course driving across the 'tundra' (not technically tunda as my friend points out) - but a vast expanse of snow and ice that would appear to have been untouched by anyone. This was a great discovery and led by an experienced guide Guðjón who has deep ties to historical Iceland.

“Katlatrack Iceland /Thörsmork/Landmanalaugar -unforgettable”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

These tours are unforgettable. The guide showed us the most beautiful corners. And his humor and his knowledge of nature has the whole rounded. We can recommend any tours with Katlatrack Island Reisendem. Even the ride in this great car is something special.
Thörsmork-Landmanalaugar-the glacier tour on Katla. On our next visit to Iceland, we book it again immediately. Thank you so much, Viking.

“So professionals and yet so friendly.”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

I had a wonderful experience! Highly recommendable! We personalised the trip together with the staff, they were very flexible and so careful, really interested in making us discover the essence of this wonderful country, always accessible to answer our questions and go beyond our curiosity. We felt from the first moment among friends and we had an unforgettable day across the southern coast of Iceland. Not only expert guides but also (and specially) customer focused people!
