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:
    This was my first visit to Iceland, and I will be back. In terms of day to day logistics, it was very easy to get to pickup stops; my hotel was centrally located with an abundance of restaurants and bars mere paces away. It is easy to run out of superlatives.
    Worst parts:
    I was expecting high prices, and planned for it - so was not surprised at the cost of a beer, say, or a restaurant meal. This does not mean I liked it! but - having the expectation and planning ahead helped mitigate the shock.
    Summary:
    Using downtown Reykjavik as my base, I took several tours, which were amazing. The 'gourmand walking tour' was excellent; make sure you are really hungry!

The 'gourmand walking tour' was excellent; make sure you are really hungry! A morning spent at Perlan was awesome, and great value - though I did not see the Northern Lights 'in the wild' the planetarium show made up for it; the ice cave was brilliant. And - adored the Blue Lagoon.See more

    Best parts:
    Everything went as planned and the areas we visited were overall very good. Our guide was excellent. Food was always good.
    Worst parts:
    We should have been told about the bus transfer getting to our hotel. Not a big deal, but we should have been informed. We were expecting to pick from dinner menus at the hotels and not have choices already made. We had to alter a few of them. We had a street side room for one night at the Marina. It was very noisy.
    Summary:
    We loved Iceland, despite the sometimes bad weather. The waterfalls were great but the highlights were the Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach. The Geyser area was just OK.
