Best way to start traveling again in a post-COVID world
Aug 2021
The tour far exceeded our expectations. The breathtaking beauty of Icelandic wilderness will always hold a special place in our hearts. We were able to see much of the country within a limited period of time, embracing every day as an exciting new adventure.

We wouldn't have got such a perfect first taste of Iceland without our guide Thales, who demonstrated exceptional professionalism, patience and flexibility. Thanks to him, we were able to explore many hidden secrets of Iceland. We didn't select horseback riding in the first place but trusted his recommendation and signed up for it during the tour, which turned out to be one of the most memorable highlights of our trip.

I would recommend this tour to anyone considering visiting Iceland for the first time. You will be in good hands when you choose Troll Expeditions.

6 Day Summer Circle Tour
Aug 2021
I just got back from the 6-Day Summer Ring Route tour with Troll expeditions. I highly recommend this company and this particular tour if you are first-time visitor, as this provides a really good feel for the diversity of Iceland. I think my only regret is not signing up for the 8-day tour! I also highly encourage you to sign up for the tour extras. I only initially signed up for the snorkeling and ice caves, but ended up doing everything except for the salt baths (which I would have if I brought my swim shorts!).

The tour was very organized, and huge shoutout to our tour guide Thales. He was very accommodating, flexible, and very informative! Definitely one of the best guides I have ever met. He was able to get me in extras that I did not sign up for, and is very well connected. He definitely knows quite a bit about the sights to see around the Ring Road which may not necessarily be described in the itinerary.

The days were long and packed, which to me just means that you get your money's worth. Highly recommend this company (and ask for Thales if you can!).

Great experience with an amazing guide
Aug 2021
I have just come back from an amazing trip organized by Troll. I enjoyed not only seeing the breathtaking landscape of Iceland, but experiencing a lot of things for the very first time such as glacier hiking, Snorkeling in a fissure between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, horse riding and whale watching. I am 200% satisfied, and missing Iceland already.

I really appreciate a super nice guide, João. He is very professional and did his best efforts to make my trip unforgettable. It was a group of tour with people coming from all over the world, and did not know each other. But thanks to him, I think we came to feel like close friends at the end of the tour.

Wonderful holiday
Jul 2021
My twelve year old and I had an exceptional time during our 6 day summer tour. Our charismatic guide Gylfi took care of every little detail making sure everyone in the group had a pleasant time. My only regret is not booking a longer tour as you can easily do with another two days to capture even more of what this beautiful country has to offer in summer.

The adventure of a lifetime
Jul 2021
If you're going to visit Iceland - do it with this tour and Gylfi as your guide. You will leave enriched with spectacular sights and feeling nature in the most beautiful way. With a knowledgeable and engaging guide such as Gylfi, our experience was even greater. From black sand beaches to hiking glaciers, this trip has it all!

What an adventure, guided 6 day summer tour
Jul 2021 • Friends
We did the guided 6 day summer tour of Iceland with the best of the south, east and north. This tour was an amazing adventure. The small group size was nice and we were able to make friends with the entire group. Our tour guide, Joao, was the best ever. You could tell he loved Iceland and wanted us all to get the best experience, altering the tour to our different fitness levels and interest. I'm 35 and went along with my parents and family friends ages 65 - 74 and we all had a great time. The glacier hike was awesome. There wasn't anything we didn't love, the waterfalls and learning about the geothermal activity...it is definitely a land of fire and ice and just stunning landscape.

Unforgettable trip, amazing tour guide!
Jun 2021 • Solo
Had a wonderful time with the group, we became a family! Well-planned, great activities and accommodations. Above all, a big appreciation to our dear tour guide Gylfi, who has done above and beyond to make sure everyone had fun and felt comfortable and safe, helped us all through covid-related logistics and was a great source of knowledge. We will all miss him and hope to travel with him in the future.

An Incredible Experience
May 2021
I highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see much of Iceland in a short period of time. The daily itineraries and pre-booked accommodations make it much easier than doing a self- guided tour. My guide was Thales, and I could not have asked for anyone better to take us on this tour. He is very passionate about and knowledgeable about Iceland. I learned a lot about the country. He also made sure that we felt comfortable and safe during the excursions and the long drives. I did this trip solo, but I never felt on my own. I would absolutely book another tour of Iceland through Troll Expeditions. So thank you to them. And again, thank you Thales, for making the journey so light and fun!

The most excellent tour ever
Just like the description states, it was like a friend picked us up and showed us their country with a personal flair that I never expected. Hinrik was our friendly guide and he had smiles and laughs the whole 8 day trip. I swear he knew every Icelander we bumped into! The trip description had certain landmarks and events that we were scheduled for, but on top of that we met some of his friends, saw places off the beaten track and spent time where we wanted to spend time. Ronan was our very sweet French snorkel guide at Silfra. He made our first day an epic adventure. Sven was our Glacier Cave guide and he was so much fun we had fun despite the conditions of the cave. Ossa? Was our Glacier Hike guide. He was very informative.
Tröll Expeditions was a great choice for us.
