Stephen "Iceland is a beautiful country in its own right. I saw and photographed multiple parts of it never ending landscape. It just seemed to keep going, whilst occasionally offering you glimpses of untamed Icelandic horses or Raindeer. Glaciers, vast icy regions and amazing coastal regions all form part of this awesome landscape. I didn't see the Northern lights in the end, but did I care, not really. O..."

    Missed the northern lights, but it didn’t matter. There was so much more to this trip. Waterfalls, guisers, glaciers, black sand beaches. Such amazing, dramatic landscape. To an Australian, it’s so different - like visiting another planet. In December it... Read more

    Our guide made our trip, period. His knowledge of the area and sense of humor were perfect. While passing through or stopping somewhere, he would tell us the Saga for that area so I wasn't just seeing it as it is today, I could imagine what it was like back... Read more

    I opted for the private transport from the airport for 90 USD. I was told I would be met in Arrivals and the maximum wait time was an hour after my plane landed. Seventy minutes after landing, I decided to see if I could find someone to help me call. As... Read more

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Are the Northern Lights guaranteed on this trip?

      As a naturally occurring phenomenon, the appearance of the Northern Lights is notoriously difficult to predict any further in advance than about two hours before it happens. So much is dependent on solar activity, we can accurately predict neither when they will occur nor how frequently. Every endeavour will be made on this trip to see the Northern Lights however this is not guaranteed.

      That being said, this tour is packed with plenty of other amazing and unforgettable experiences! You will have the opportunity to bathe in the geothermal Blue Lagoon, see the mighty Seljalandsfoss waterfall and take on a glacier hike.

    • Do you have any customised Iceland tours?

      Unfortunately we do not have any customised trips available in this region. The trips available are set itineraries and group tours.

    • Is it possible to have an extra night accommodation?

      We can arrange an extra night in a single room per person, per night with taxes included. Please contact us to arrange this.
