    Personally, it was a really amazing experience in Iceland despite the bad weather (blizzard), as the tour guide (Fifa) is really helpful and made a backup plan such as hiking. We did not get the chance to cover the northern part of Iceland and the whale watching was also, unfortunately, canceled. Cannot blame anyone because of the weather, however in my opinion, it will be better not to conduct the tour in the end of November or the peak of winter, as it will disappoint the participants. What makes the tour quite worth it for the price is the accommodation, which really comfortable. Thank you for the effort Arctic Adventure and hopefully my feedbacks will be useful for your future operation.

    Round Iceland 6 day tour, 9th-14th July, 2017. A most interesting tour. Our guide, Norris, was really good, knowledgeable about people, sagas, mythology, vegetation and above all the geology (I am a geologist). His driving was very good and he looked after us very well. We were blessed with excellent weather (only one shower). There was so much to see, waterfalls, volcanoes, Hot springs, geysers icesheets, glaciers, most of it new and different. The accommodation was all good, though some of it quite basic, as expected. Food good, specially lobster soup. There were 15 of us on the tour, Americans, Indians, French, Swiss, Chinese, all friendly, compatible people. I was the only Scotsman and the oldest (78). I strongly recommend the tour, specially if Norris is the guide. Angus Findlay. angus.findlay@notionmore.co.uk

    Such a beautiful country! Our guide, Arni, did a great job of making several stops along the route to break up the drives each day even if it was something as simple as a sunrise. We felt safe at all times during the snowy drives. Basic but clean hotels.

    This tour was amazing. Well organised and we got to make our way to sights around the entire country. Our tour leader, Arni, was an absolute star - full of knowledge and good humour, and excellent driving in difficult conditions. I’d fully recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the country!

    I went on a 6 day tour around Iceland with Arctic Adventures in November. The tour was incredible. The itinerary covered everything you could possibly want out of Iceland, even with the diminishing daylight hours and unpredictable weather. The hotels were comfortable, breakfast was included but other meals always allowed a self-catering option for those who did not want to eat out, and there was always plenty of time to see sights and ask questions. It was overall an incredibly well put together tour.

    Explore Iceland: Nature, Waterfalls, Lava fields and loads of fun and adventure. Travel period: End of October 2017 Traveler Type: Group of Friends Tour: 6-Day Small-Group Adventure Tour Around Iceland from Reykjavik Tour Guide: François Value for money: Worth every penny Overall Rating: Excellent! Why I chose this tour? For my first time in Iceland, this tour was the best decision I made. I did a lot of research planning for this once in a lifetime trip. A couple of friends have been to Iceland before in which they rented a car and toured on their own. The roads in Iceland are narrow and as good drivers they were and with GPS they did have some difficulty driving around and controlling the car in certain weather conditions. I’m not the best driver, so I decided on taking a guided tour with my friends and not drive on our own, which has advantages: Learn more about Iceland from an expert, ensure accommodation by the end of the day (it gets really dark and no much lights in peripheral roads, I really did not want to get lost) and get to know new friends. I was not interested in bathing in natural hot springs nor the “Blue Lagoon”, so when I found this tour it was perfect for me. We did stop by one hot spring on day 4, however we did have the option to bathe or stroll around the area so our group divided and it was still fun. Booking and pickup: It was an easy booking process. There was clear communication with the company through the website I booked the tour, answering questions with in 24 hours. We clarified pick up and drop off location from the hotels on the first and last day (they pick you up from the nearest bus-stop). Also, meal options (we asked about Halal meals and were informed that there are no much halal options on the road however there was plenty of seafood and vegetarian options). Before arrival we asked about the hotels we will be staying at during the 5 nights and they sent us the names. We Were supposed to be picked up at 8 am, we waited for 20 minutes with multiple arctic adventure buses passing us. I called the company and they answered immediately. I was informed to wait at least 30 min as they are picking up other people in the tour and they are on their way. It wasn’t long after till our tour bus arrived. That said, it would have been nice if they informed us we needed to wait in the cold morning. It is expected in a group of 12 people for some delay picking them up from there hotels, just let us know in advance our expected waiting time. The Tour: It was an amazing 6 days spent across Iceland. The tour had total 12 people including me and my friends. The mini coach bus was warm and specious enough to accommodate all of us with small space to store some stuff above your head and wide windows for excellent view. We left most of our stuff on the bus as we hopped on and off during the tour stops. It was very safe and the bus was locked at all times. Our tour Guide François did a great job informing us about each location we went to; briefing us every day about the stops and locations we were visiting and even sharing some books about Iceland history, myths and other cool stuff. He was very considerate in telling us the washroom stops and how long it will take for our next stop. You will be visiting a lot of waterfalls and will be walking around near streams and up hills in most of the locations. Do invest in warm and water proof gear with good hiking boots. If you are in a good fit (used to climbing 3 story stairs and regular workout) you will have no problems physically to enjoy each location. I think the 3-hour glacier hike was the most demanding. If you never hiked before or walked on Ice this will be challenging. You will be given instructions and gear to have a safe hike. That said, loads of fun and breathtaking scenes on the glacier, we were lucky and walked into an ice-cave which was cool. Only breakfast is included for your tour other meals were not. We had daily stops at to grab snacks and lunch at decent cafeterias and cute cafés. François made daily reservations for our dinner in reasonable places, after a long day you do crave a warm meal. You should know that food is expensive in Iceland, me and my friends always shared our meals which came in good portions. Vegetarian options, seafood, fresh fish and lamb were delicious. And apparently chicken salad is available everywhere. François gave good food recommendations and you have to try the lobsters also known as langoustine, YUM. Accommodation was in decent clean hotels and guesthouses, I shared my room with a friend. The rest of the group who were traveling solo didn’t need to share their rooms. Basic toiletries were available in most of the places with clean towels. The accommodations are mostly in rural areas so check the Aurora forecast every night before you go to bed. We were lucky one night and got to see the northern lights which was spectacular. Each day was an amazing experience, Iceland has a breath-taking scenery: Waterfalls, Lava fields, Geysirs and Glacier and my favorite Black beach and Diamond beach. We saw some rainbows on the way too, and the northern lights were the cherry on top. We were lucky to have a great group in which we were able to bond and become close friends. Our amazing tour guide François made this experience unforgettable and was really smart, socially intelligent and very knowledgeable for our tour. I do recommend this tour highly for anyone planning to explore Iceland for the first time, personally I will take it again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Arctic Adventure, for this amazing first-time experience in Iceland. And special thanks to our tour guide François for his great effort and hard work during the tour.

    We had an amazing time on the 6 day tour around Iceland - the sights were incredible and the itinerary was perfect, with lovely places to stay each night and great food stops along the way also. We feel like we got the full Iceland experience, mainly thanks to our guide Norris who was really exceptional - friendly, helpful, funny and very knowledgable. He really went above and beyond to accommodate everyone on the tour, even taking us out in the evenings to go hunting for the northern lights. A fantastic week and would highly recommend as a good way to see as much of Iceland as possible within the relatively short time we had. Thank you!
