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:
    Seeing the countryside. The Lava Museum was a fantastic experience.
    Worst parts:
    Dimness of the lighting in the rooms of the *** Hotel - the room lighting was non-existent. Other than that the hotel was nice and it's location great.
    Summary:
    Selected Iceland because we wanted to experience something totally different. We found it! It was a privilege to explore and take in the beauty of the country.

It was a privilege to explore and take in the beauty of the country. Our time was spent in the west and south. We will return to do the rest in the next few years.See more

    Mother/Daughter Trip to Iceland
    3 October 2019
    Best parts:
    The natural beauty of the country was breathtaking. We had an outstanding trip, very well planned (thanks to Gunnar) and enjoyed every single thing we did. Our favorite activity was the zodiac boat ride on the lagoon seeing Iceland's largest glacier. The hike on a glacier was also really cool, and our guide, Magnus, was a fun, very upbeat young man. Our favorite guesthouse was Glacier View with Hotel Laekur a very close second. The food at both guesthouses was outstanding, as well as the hospitality. Driving Iceland was quite easy too.
    Worst parts:
    We needed longer days to see and do everything we wanted to do! There truly wasn't a 'worst part'.
    Summary:
    My daughter and I shared a strong desire to see the Northern Lights (which we were able too), and to be up close with glaciers and waterfalls. We are both science geeks, and the geography of Iceland ...My daughter and I shared a strong desire to see the Northern Lights (which we were able too), and to be up close with glaciers and waterfalls. We are both science geeks, and the geography of Iceland is so diverse and so fascinating.See more
