Having done tours previously with other travelers who are closer to my age (25) I was disappointed at first when I saw that this tour had many families and older couples.

    What a fantastic trip! I'm a self-proclaimed independent traveller, but found this tour which included everything I was looking for, and I am so pleased that I joined it. Our guide, Pall, was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, humorous and handled the group so well, he made the trip an absolute delight. Clearly there is a lot of driving involved in a round trip of the country, but I chose it as it I was keen to visit the south and the Lake Myvtan area and this seemed more logical than using Reykjavik as a base. I found the tour well paced, with good length breaks to see sights, and more stops than expected. A lot of people slept during the drives, but I loved watching to see what surprise was around the next corner. The landscape is other-worldly and diverse, and it was great to be able to see how it changed around the country. Whale watching is ever disappointing, but at least we had a beautiful, sunny morning and ate fish caught on the boat which was pretty incredible. We stayed at smaller, remote hotels/guest houses, while it meant we ate as a group at their restaurants, this was fun and the food was excellent. All accommodation was comfortable. I usually expect tours to be made up of solo travellers, but we had a family, a couple and several solo travellers, aged between 19 and 68. It was generally a good dynamic with everyone wanting to participate. There were 11 people on the tour and I imagine the bus (for 16) would have been a bit uncomfortable if it was a full group. I was super impressed with the tour, very happy to have joined it, I'm already recommending Arctic Adventures!

    6Days Iceland Adventure -Artic Adventure My husband and i are very satisfied with the tour itinerary and overall arrangement. We had an enjoyable and amazing time throughout the tour . Our guide , Mr Ragnar made it very interesting while introducing part of Iceland with their history, culture and brief geographical explanation of the landscape. He is very lively, Jovial and accommodating. Everything was perfect. Small group of 8 people came from different part of the world made the group to be very enjoyable and interesting . Importantly, we are able to blend and respect each other concern. Highly recommend this tour ,as you get to explore Iceland comfortably with an affordable price.

    Awesome way to see the country of Iceland! My original plan involved traveling with a friend with an itinerary we created, however, when she had to cancel, I found this tour to join and I'm so glad I did. Our guide was amazing - very laid back but yet extremely efficient at getting us to all the locations and activities we had planned. He was always just so excited to share information about Iceland, its history, its locations. Our accomodations were as stated - 3 star guesthouses with a few actually being brand new with new rooms and bathrooms. The food was all lovely. I thought this tour was just such a great way to see Iceland all around the Ring Road while having someone plan it for me. Thanks Arctic Adventures!

    Tour guide is excellent.Well mannered,well behave and a perfect gentleman. The whale watching was no good.it is very difficult to see any whale and it is very cold.there wasnot a heated room.My wife nearly collapsed due to cold. The whole programme should in covered boat with tea and coffee facilities.Glacier hiking was a new adventure and the guide was very helpful. Only problem that one has to long distance to reach the glacier.Gogt should do something so that the bus can go little further and less walking

    I just finished my 6 day tour with Thor as my guide and it was unbelievably amazing! Having done tours previously with other travelers who are closer to my age (25) I was disappointed at first when I saw that this tour had many families and older couples. However, they were all amazing, friendly, open-minded and generous and I loved spending my trip with them! We were blessed with beautiful weather and clear skies for most of the trip so that made it extra special. Guide/Driver: Thor was extremely helpful, friendly and most importantly, kept us safe while driving long distances and in tricky conditions every day. Accommodations: Most accommodations were out in the country (better to see the Aurora) but they were all nice and had fast WiFi! 4/5 had a blow dryer and 2 had a hot tub! I know Arctic Adventures doesn’t use the same hotels for every trip but my favorites were Hotel Laugarbakki and Á Hreindýraslóðum. Food: Free breakfast was included at every hotel. Fresh fruits, sliced deli meats, bread, cereal and porridge were mainly what was offered. 4/5 hotels offered dinner and it was your only option for dinner unless you brought food with you. Hamburgers and lamb are on almost every menu and all the food was great! Transportation: the bus we took is a 16 passanger van that was comfortable enough for us all to sleep on during the long drives to make up for the early wake up calls. Itinerary: every sight we went to and activity we did was breathtaking! My favorite was either the Black Diamond Beach or the Mývatn Nature Baths. Although we didn’t see many whales during the 3 hour whale watching tour, the views were still incredible. I would HIGHLY suggest layering up that day. Although I did AND was given coveralls by the company, we were all still freezing. Misc.: Going in the beginning on April, there was still a lot of snow and ice on the ground so certain activities would’ve been miserable or impossible without the right shoes (my waterproof hiking boots were fine but if it snowed any more I would’ve needed my snow boots).

    We saw so many beautiful sights! However, our guide (Crazy Sven) made it clear from the start that he did not like foreigners - particularly Americans. One day while driving, we passed a car caught in sand by the side of the road in the middle of nowhere. Despite many of us in the group offering to help the drivers, our guide stopped the bus and went outside to berate the drivers. Afterwards he returned to the bus and drove away while complaining about foreign drivers, without even calling for help. At other points, he drove very fast (passing other drivers) in the snow while talking on his cell phone. Unlike other tours in which I have participated, our guide did not provide any information about the sights we were approaching. He would silently pull the bus into the parking lot and tell us when to be back. Some of the hotels were disgusting and lacking internet access. Not impressed.

    Dear Morgan, Thank you so much for taking the time to write us this review. We were really disappointed to read about your experience and are truly sorry for what happened during your tour. An apology cannot change what happened, but we do still want to offer one with all sincerity. The level of service that you experienced is certainly not acceptable and will be addressed with the concerned party. We assure you that we take this very seriously and do not accept reckless or condescending behavior. On behalf of our team, I again would like to sincerely apologize for the experience you had.
