Both our guide and driver were great. They were both very attentive to our needs and

knowledgeable about Iceland.

The tour was well planned and extensive, nothing boring about the itinerary.”  

Paul Castellan • Submitted 13 Oct 2016

An absolutely wonderful tour. We were very happy with everything. The places we visited and the things we saw. We only wish it was for longer.

Our only negative feedback was the bus. It was a little old.”  

David Moss • Submitted 13 Oct 2016

The tour was amazing. The guide and driver were warm, friendly and knowledgeable. It felt very relaxed and yet we packed so much into the days. The Glacier walk was an incredible experience and worth the money (although we felt it should have been made clearer regarding additional cost for this prior to booking the tour as it appeared it was included rather than an addition). We loved the Arhus Cottages and though we were unfortunate not to see the northern lights; it didn't make the holiday any less enjoyable. The accomodation was basic but this was expected. Overall an excellent trip, beautiful sights and a great opportunity to meet people from all over the world! ”

There's more to Iceland than the Northern Lights with attractive port cities, stunning national parks and gorgeous countryside that's worth visiting in every season. Here's some of our favourite spots in Iceland.

Reykjavik Dusk
World's northern-most capital


Iceland's capital city is a cosmopolitan mix of top-class restaurants, funky bars and fascinating museums set within colourful buildings and intriguing architectural designs. Reykjavik makes an excellent base for those short on time in Iceland and looking to explore some of the nearby countryside with an attractive setting on the coast and backed by mountains.

Blue Lagoon - Recommended Places
Open-air Geothermal Spa

The Blue Lagoon

Situated in a desolate lava field a short distance from Reykjavik, the man-made Blue Lagoon is Iceland's most visited attraction. Visitors flock here to bathe in the warm, therapeutic waters, believed to aid all kinds of ailments from psoriasis to arthritis, and enjoy the excellent spa facilities that encompass a bar, restaurant and cafe too.

Hella Countryside - Recommended Places
Icelandic countryside


Sitting on the banks of the attractive river of Ytri-Ranga, the rural town of Hella is surrounded by gorgeous countryside of glistening waterways and expansive green pastures where the scent of horses floats in the air as Hella also happens to be located in Iceland's prime horse-breeding area. It's also an ideal base for spotting the Northern Lights with minimal light pollution and beautiful scenery.

Gullfoss waterfall - Golden Circle - Recommended Places
Waterfalls and geysers

The Golden Circle

Comprised of the spectacular double cascade of Gullfoss, the geothermal valley of Haukadalur famous for its geysers, and the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park which perfectly showcases Iceland's unique geology, the Golden Circle is a popular tourist route and easy to cover in a day's excursion from the capital.

Vatnajokull NP
Protected Wilderness

Vatnajokull National Park

With impressive waterfalls, vast highlands, glacial lakes and volcanic craters, the Vatnajökull National Park is wild Iceland at its best. As fire and ice play against one another, the landscape is being constantly reshaped and is captivating throughout the year, carpeted in snow in the winter and blooming with green in the summer.

The Land of Fire and Ice

Known as the 'Land of Fire and Ice', Iceland is a country of contrasts. To the north is the famed Golden Circle, made up of Gulfoss, 'the Golden Falls', Geysir Hot Spring Area and Thingvellir National Park - a wonderland of geothermal and hydro activity. To the south lies quiet fishing villages, black lava beaches, glaciers and the troublesome volcano Eyjafjallajokull, which caused chaos over European skies in 2010.
