Seljalansfoss in Iceland
 I never tire of hearing people's description of seeing the Northern Lights for the first time, or the glacier lagoon of Jökulsárlón. The beautiful thing about Iceland is that around every bend you find your next great postcard picture

Favourites from the agency
  • The Vestman Island is home to one of the worlds largest puffin colonies, and an active volcano that last erupted in 1973.
  • At the waterfalls of Hraunfossar in Borgarfjordur, a river runs several miles underground that comes bursting out from the edge of a lava field!
  • The area around Skaftafell in Vatnajökull National Park. In the summer you have the purple of the lupin plant with a backdrop of glaciers.
  • I love a good winter storm, as long as everybody is safe. The nature and weather play a big part of life in Iceland.

    Best parts:
    How well planned Nika made the trip. While we enjoyed so much, we probably liked the glacier hike the best. We had to change dates and Nika took care of it right away and while in Iceland, Nika again helped us change itinerary and did an amazing job
    Worst parts:
    A lot of driving but that was what I asked for. Didn’t love Islandair hotel in Reykjavik
    Summary:
    We saw many great sites, got to hike and as mentioned before , loved the heavier hike. We really enjoyed Blue Lagoon, secret lagoon, and best we liked Krauma

    Best parts:
    We really liked what Patrizia suggested. It was fun, interesting. Yes Iceland is full during the summer time. But the further out we drove the less other tourists we saw. One of the best meals we had was on Heimaey. We ‚stumbled‘ in a restaurant called S******** Try it out!!
    Worst parts:
    We actually only have one thing we did not like. That was the guesthouse **** we were in at the last night before going back to Reykijavic. But I suppose it depends on our expectations. Compared to the other hotels and guesthouse, this was the one we did not like.
    Summary:
    Sometimes we had trouble finding the destinations as we didn’t always have the exact address which made it difficult at times. What we really loved was the secret lagoon and the zodiac tour at the Vat...Sometimes we had trouble finding the destinations as we didn’t always have the exact address which made it difficult at times. What we really loved was the secret lagoon and the zodiac tour at the Vatnajökul glacier. And also the Lava Museum was impressive. The trip to the Heimaey island, looking for the Puffins and our climb onto the volcano was another highlight.See more
