Fantastic trip from start to finish. Our driver was courteous, helpful and friendly. Picked up at our hotel and returned there. Went snowmobiling first with time at each spot on the Golden Circle on the way back. Well organised day, experience on snowmobiling was more than expected and golden circle stops were glorious, particularly in the snow. FABULOUS trip.

Our guide, Yngvi, was fantastic. He shared information about Iceland and each of our stops. Visiting the glacier was unique and his expertise as an off road enthusiast and search and rescue volunteer was invaluable. Despite a rainy day, we thoroughly enjoyed the day with the glacier as a highlight. Bring rain gear and layers.

Adam, our guide is excellent. His enthusiasm for what he does is infectious and his knowledge of the country is vast. We were treated to a beautiful show of aurora including a full carona. A wonderous experionce. THANK YOU ADAM.

Fantastic trip, nothing was to much trouble for the guide, an amazing experience :) Only issue was the Black Death, blew me tits off!

There isn’t a better experience available in Iceland. Do this tour or you’ll regret it!
