What people are saying about Egilsstaðir

My family and I agree that this was best vacation (tour) we’ve ever taken. Our guide, Rocky was fantastic. Everyone on the tour was captivated by his knowledge of the island. We very much enjoyed his tales; myths and truths! The minivan experience was very comfortable. Rocky’s playlist was on-point and thoughtfully arranged. The activities and guides were spectacular. On this tour we participated in glacier hiking, cave touring, horseback riding and whale watching. The stops along the trip were breathtaking; we saw beautiful waterfalls, caves, geysers, black sand beaches, glaciers, lakes and even reindeer! My family and I plan on returning to Iceland again and I will recommend Troll Expeditions to everyone I know!

We were a small group of 6. Everything was was well organized and our guide was the best. We started each day around 8-9 am and arrived before dinner at the next stop. The minibus was comfy and Wi-Fi was available all time. Our guide made us feel like guests, not just customers. I would travel again this tour.
