About
Join this tour that covers the Ring Road around Iceland, the magnificent Snaefellsnes peninsula and the remote and isolated West fjords. Visiting the Latrabjarg cliff gives you a good chance to spot the famous Puffins. You will travel around Iceland in a small and comfortable mini-van, with maximum 12 people in a group. So your experience will be more personal and intimate, and you will feel like you are exploring Iceland independently. Visit some of Iceland's most beautiful places on this tour like the Golden Circle, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls, Reynisfjara black sand beach, Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, Lake Mývatn, Látrabjarg cliff and the West fjords and Snæfellsnes Peninsula. Included is accommodation for 12 nights including breakfast and dinners for 10 nights. In the countryside we will stay in farm stays that will give you chances of interacting with local people, taste local food such as lamb and fish, and observe local animals such as dogs, horses and goats.

Out-STANDING Tour!
Jun 2021 • Friends
This was my first visit to this beautiful country and this tour offered the perfect introduction. We visited all 4 courners of the island, including the less-visited Western Fijords. Jens was an excellent guide! He has considerable knowledge and enthusiasm, along with a wry sense of humor. In addition to all the major highlights, he took us to some of the more obscure attractions, and we were frequently the only ones there. The places we stayed were often smaller, family-run guest houses, without the usual crowds, but the rooms were always clean and comfortable. The included meals were excellent--I didn't have a bad meal the entire trip. Jens was also accomodating--he made unscheduled stops as best he could, in spite of the tight schedule. Even though the schedule was full, we were always allowed ample time at all of the stops, with plenty of free time alloted. This tour had the perfect amount of hiking for me--some days more than others, but Jens always let you know in advance, and if you weren't up for it that day, you could always stay with the van. I've already encouraged family and friends to sign up--I cannot recommend this tour more highly.

Fabulous itinerary, scenery and guide
Jul 2021
I had a fabulous time! I chose this tour because the itinerary was so inclusive, and the company had great reviews. The small group size is a real perk. I think I would not have had the same authentic experience with a larger company and/or non-native guide. Jens inside knowledge and experience was invaluable and much appreciated. He gave us understandable guidelines for how much time we should portion for each site, but was flexible and I rarely felt rushed. He very smartly tweaked the itinerary for the last two days so we could return to Reykjavik in time to get our COVID test for our return flight.

Iceland is a stunningly beautiful, scenic country and I'm happy I got to see so much of it. I completely enjoyed our lodgings; attractive and comfortable, and everything working (I'm used to 3rd-world countries where the electricity is going out and there's no hot water). Almost all our lodgings had in-room tea/coffee which was nice. Lamb is my favorite and I enjoyed it for dinner many times.

Do bring warm gloves, hat and scarf as recommended - I used them often and was thankful to have them. The clothing I brought was too lightweight.... do not underestimate the wind, rain and changeable weather. You don't need much variety of clothing because you will be bundled in a coat and hat pretty much all day. I did not wear either pair of shorts I brought once.

I did not find the van particularly comfortable; there is not a coat hook, cup holder, pocket or snippet of storage anywhere on or around the seats, and I found myself balancing my gear uncomfortably in my lap for hours. The windows have sun filtering film so it's too dark to read inside, and zero visibility outside when raining.

Other than that, you are in good hands with Jens, who is patient and accepting of all, and quite easy to get smiling. By the way I think he is a fabulous driver and never felt unsafe in the van for a minute. Unless you want to waste your day on the road instead of seeing the sights, you cannot be complacent to be stuck behind slow drivers for miles (i.e. tourists in rental cars). I would not have missed this experience! Highly recommend the itinerary and Jens!

Awesome trip
Jul 2021
This was a fantastic trip. I loved it and would highly recommend it. Still, different people have different tastes so I'll try to give an informative review so you can better make up your own mind.
A brief background of before the tour. We were all set to go in 2020 and then . . . well you know. Owner/operator/guide Jens was extremely understanding and helpful as we first canceled 2020 and then later, after a lot of indecision on our part, decided we could go in 2021.
The tour mainly (not exclusively) emphasizes the incredible scenery of Iceland: daily waterfalls, the iceberg lagoon, lava fields and beach walks. We spent a little time on a quick tour of Reykjavik, saw one small but nice museum, and had three hours of free time in Akureyri; the rest was mostly scenery and birds. That was perfect for me (I for one would have sacrificed the time in the city and villages for more waterfalls) but if you want more culture and less scenery this may not be your ideal tour.
Another reviewer observed that there was more driving and fewer attractions in the west part of the island. This is true and is underscored because the west part comes after the very busy south, east and north. My wife said if she were to do it again she'd go for the 10-day tour. Not me; the puffins and Dynjandi alone would have made it worth the extra driving.
Accommodations tended to be a little cramped by American standards but otherwise very nice. Breakfasts, IMO, tended to be a little boring; lunch is on your own dime (OK, more like your own $15.00; Iceland is expensive); dinners were fantastic. There were frequent "technical stops" along the way where you could take care of pressing business and buy coffee and/or snacks.
Jens's van is nothing really special (it does have WIFI, a big point in its favor). It is only slightly more comfortable than economy class airline seats but the frequent stops to get out and stretch our legs made this, for me at least, pretty much a non-issue.
Speaking of which, there is a lot of walking on this tour, more than you might expect from reading the description on the web site. This was great for most of us but if you are either unwilling or unable to do some moderate walking every day, this is not the tour for you.
As mentioned, Jens was very helpful before the trip. In particular he is very good about answering emails. He also made accommodation arrangements for us to arrive early and leave late and even arranged a room for my cousin and me at the end of a second tour we took after his.
Other reviewers have said, accurately, that Jens is not exactly loquacious. He gives information about the day in general and provides information at each stop during the day but he does not talk non-stop along the road. This was fine by me but I gather some people feel for their money they should get a continuous monologue. Not happening with Jens. He is however perfectly happy to answer all your questions. Also, at the end of the day Jens always ate dinner with us but it was clear that other than that he considered himself off the clock once we were settled in our rooms. If I was herding tourists 10 hours a day I'd want some personal time at the end too but I gather some people have different expectations.
My only reservation about the whole tour is that I personally thought Jens was a bit of an aggressive driver. We had no accidents and I'm not aware he's ever had an accident but you might feel more comfortable with your seatbelt on (it's the law in Iceland anyway).
So, my advice is to understand exactly what you are and aren't getting but I for one had a wonderful time (and have about 2500 pictures to show for it) and I'd go again in a heartbeat.

Amazing scenery, good guiding, great accomodations. Everyone should go with Jens..
Jun 2021
If you can tour with Jens, do it. Jens Olafsson is the sole owner and guide of Fun Travels Iceland. Jens tours with his comfortable 12-passenger van. This was a Great Way to see the biggest sights of Iceland. We considered self-driving but decided that we both wanted to see the sights rather than just the road. That was a good decision. We chose Jens and his company because we wanted a small group and his reviews were excellent.

Jens selected an excellent itinerary traveling the ring road in a counter clockwise direction. We found that most of our stops were not crowded due in part to Jens' timing. At almost every stop, we were encouraged to hike alongside waterfalls, traverse lava fields, and explore historic areas on our own. The photographers in our group had plenty of time to capture the natural spectacles. Jens kept us on time but not hurried. He gave us all the information we needed and he answered those with more specific questions. He knew that I was particularly interested in seeing puffins and he made several stops to accommodate me. Although the tour information did not mention hiking, we were able to enjoy a lot of Iceland on foot.

We stayed at comfortable small lodgings in the countryside--sometimes at small farms that had built tourist accommodations. Usually the lodging provided not only breakfast but also dinner. We were not given menu choices. Rather the host brought plates full of food to each tour member. Every night we got either lamb or fish (cod, salmon, or artic char.) These are our favorites and we felt that every meal was excellent. Our tour had one vegetarian and one that did not eat red meat and both of these people were accommodated. Don’t go to Iceland expecting a lot of fruits and vegetables.

Jens just briefly toured Reykjavik on the first day, so after the tour we stayed at an Airbnb in Reykjavik for three days. We enjoyed an open air museum, an art museum, the Settlement Exhibit, the arboretum, and the Blue Lagoon. Public transportation is excellent, so it is easy to navigate the city. We felt that Covid precautions were comprehensive and so we were not concerned about the disease. Everything is open in Iceland. We hope to return to Iceland in the winter and tour again with Fun Travels Iceland.

Great Time, Little Weight Gain* (* lots of hiking)
Jun 2021
When my travel buddies asked if we wanted to take this tour of Iceland, I thought we were booking the usual stop-jump out, photo op that would race around the island and offer junk food every night. What a surprise! We spent thirteen days of hiking to falls, cliffs, glaciers, volcanoes and fjords. One day, we covered around 10 miles, so being in some kind of shape is a requisite for this tour unless you wish to sit in the van, waiting. The stops were often to less-visited start points for the walks.

Jens never rushed us and the the small group (we were only 10, 12 is max) facilitates more scenic visits since it doesn't take 5 minutes to unload and load as it would with a 50 person bus. we always had ample time to explore and take photos.

Note that some hikes were strenuous with changes is elevation and/or difficult footing - bring hiking poles if not steady. Also note that Jens doesn't stop for weather; rain and high winds are part of the experience.

A tip: when Jens exchanges his sandals for his hiking boots, expect some huffing and puffing. Each destination was beautiful - but it would be hard to find a spot on this island that isn't.

Accommodations are European, small, efficient and clean. Usually, the hotels were privately owned and the owners and their families were often the staff and servers. The locations were often remote, no throngs of tourists milling about; difficult anyway when there are no streets. Enjoy dinner and get to bed because the next day begins early.

The dinners were all quality restaurant fare, always delicious, always Icelandic lamb or local, fresh caught fish. The breakfasts were usually standard continental with some pleasant exceptions (yes, my wife grabbed most of the semi-soft boiled goose eggs before the other travelers arrived).

We will visit again, using Fun Travel Tours of Iceland, when we expect to need crampons to visit the falls!
