Hi dear Vacationer thank you so much for giving your self the time to write us a review. We are very happy you had such a good time when visiting North Iceland. Thora is a wonderful guide that we are very lucky to have. We will make sure to let her know about this wonderful review you just wrote us. North Iceland can be a wonderful location and one of very few places on earth where you can see Whales, Northern Lights, Waterfalls and Volcanic areas.
