Our guide Höskuldur Frímannsson (the only reason I write his name correctly is because I asked them for a ticket!) Was fantastic and very enthusiastic, informed us well about the country and its secrets. Visited a few highlights at the golden circle. I like a quick schedule. And then on with a gigantic truck bus to glacier and over an hour with a snowmobile over the snow and jjs plain. In a word! genius!!

Thank you for a wonderful trip. Our guide Eric (from Barcelona) was both knowledgeable, funny and completely comfortable with stories. We saw some of the Icelandic wonders and had a wonderful ride on a snowmobile with our teens ❤️ On the ride from basecamp the monster bus stopped, but the guide, driver and the wonderful guides from basecamp kept calm (in the dark and cold) and got fast provided a new monster bus and ensured that the shop / toilet was open longer for us at Gulfoss and last but not least we were dropped off around the hotels due to the time / bus accident. Mega good day that we will soon forget

It was amazing! It was snowing and cold but that ultimately added to the experience. We got to stop at all the places, though more time to see each would have been better, but they had to be brief so we could fit it all in! The snowmobiling was brilliant, could not recommend more.
