My husband and I were in Iceland for ten days in August and thoroughly enjoyed our trip. We went on a number of tours from Reykjavik, one of which was particularly memorable. Sverrir was our capable, friendly and flexible guide on a 10-11 hour tour...More

Full day with ‘Gummi Bear’ driving (who was great). Everything was great, and the tour guide (didn’t catch her name) was good too. Would whole heartedly recommend. We did it with a 15 year old, and he was fine. Wrap up warm!!!!
