    This was the first time I travelled with a group. Usually I do private tours, but due to the weather conditions in Iceland

    Larus was a very welcoming and informed guide. His knowledge of the geography, history and mythology of Iceland is exceptional. He was very inclusive and encouraging leader. We covered an enormous amount of territory both in Reykjavik and around Iceland... Show more

    Larus was an amazing guide, so informative and the love he had for his job and country showed. He spoke many a times about Icelandic traditions, folk tales and general way of life of Icelandic people. Every place we went to we enjoyed and he knew more... Show more

    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.

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

FAQs

    • 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.

    • Is an airport transfer included on the tour price?

      An airport transfer is not included in the tour cost but can be easily arranged and added to the booking.

    • What is the minimum age allowed for this tour?
