    This was our first Intrepid tour, and I wasn't overly impressed.The quality of the guide can really 'make or break' the success of a trip like this, and unfortunately the quality of the guide might make me reluctant to recommend Intrepid or do try another... Read more

    This type of touring is not for everyone. I would recommend intrepid for those wishing to experience a small group holiday.

    3.5 - Good

    The tour itself was good, but the tour guide was continually late for morning meetings, was late for the orientation meeting by 2 hours and did not provide sufficient background around history about sights we saw on the trip.

    If you're from the u. S., skip this company. They openly hate american's. And, they will abandon you in the middle of nowhere and kick you off the tour if you make any complaint about your accomodations or tour guide.

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.

      It was very easy to navigate and once I had a question I received an answer within one hour. The booking was very detailed and there were no "gotcha" fees. I received confirmation quickly and the paperwork included was very detailed.
