“disabled wheelchair tour”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

Wheelchairs are a big issue wherever you travel. Approx 60 emails later & itinerary in place for 7 day trip. Very patient, all concerns dealt with.
Met at airport & took to hotel icelandair Natura. Hotel is 20 -25 mins walk from centre, facilities are good, but, lifts are to small for wheelchair & luggage. Disabled room facilities are good except for wc access which is low & restricted by the sink. A totally useless arm rail which impedes access & serves no function at all other than to trap the user. Threshold strips to corridors from rooms are high & difficult to negotiate. Walked into Reykjavic most shops, restaurants have steps there are some with ramps (not many) we were supplied with a list of accessible restaurants but ring first a lot shut on Monday evening.
Flew to Akureyri Like catching a bus. Stopped at icelandair Akureyri. Disabled facilities are very good. Hotel only serves snacks, portions are small, so you need to go into town to eat. Hotel is 1200 yards at the top of a steep hill. You need to be fit to push the chair, ice & snow are as expected a problem , but there are accessible taxis & in bad weather i would recommend using them. Again shops & restaurants mainly have steps but there are some with ramps.
Myvatn tour,
Picked up on time by Jorgen, nothing was to much trouble (bottled water supplied , nice touch). Drove as close as possible to sights , no rush. Cowshed restaurant for dinner, initial thoughts not good, but stick with it, it grows on you & the food is excellent. 8pm nature baths, they closed the ladies main changing room so we could use them uninterrupted. Northern lights & back to hotel 12.15. Exellent day & service
Next day snowmobile. Picked up on time driven right up to snowmobiles, enjoyable trip great views over Akureyri, can't fault it. Northern light free tour as not seen the night before.
Back to reykjavic, picked up for whale watching, recommend dress warmly.
Golden circle tour
Picked up on time by Christian the owners brother, good day visiting all the sights. Christian suggested looking out over airport to see northern lights, saw very faint green below orions belt.
Last day Blue lagoon. could not find entry ticket, picked up on time , driver contacted office & they emailed ticket to blue lagoon, Driver came in with us & sorted everything out. facilities at lagoon are excellent for wheelchairs. Driven back to airport.
Iceland unlimited were excellent throughout, nothing was to much trouble everything was well organised & on time. They give you a mobile phone to contact them if you need to.
Sarah,s dream was to see Iceland,
they made it happen
Thankyou Iceland unlimited (especially Ellin)

“Iceland Unlimited made a good trip to Iceland into a phenomenal one!”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

I used Iceland Unlimited to book a 14-day trip to Iceland for my uncle and I. I told them when I was arriving, leaving, and what sorts of things I was interested in. Over the course of several emails, Jon narrowed down the itinerary for me. He was extremely patient and helpful, and is very knowledgeable about his country. We completed a 10-day self drive tour, as well as a few extra days in Reykjavik. Jon was always available for help and questions, and I was easily able to contact him with the cell phone he provided us. Akureyri was hit with a small blizzard, and Jon was very helpful in providing travel information, and helping us change our accomodations outside of the schedule itinerary. And when we returned to Reykjavik, we got to meet Christjan for dinner! I felt very welcome in Iceland, and had the experience of a lifetime thanks to Iceland Unlimited. I am planning to go back, and refuse to do so without the help of Iceland Unlimited!

“Wonderful day with excellent guide”
Reviewed 17 January 2014 via mobile

Organised private super jeep tour round golden circle and it was a brilliant day. Our guide, Christian, was fun and informative and an excellent driver. Our scenic route took us on a road that was sheet ice along side the lake, after having to stop for a vehicle sliding towards us it took considerable skill to keep the jeep on the road and not slide off towards the lake or the rocks.
Ice conditions meant ironically we couldn't visit the glacier but we visited the geothermal exhibition instead which was fascinating.
The geysers, the waterfall, in fact everything more than lived up to our expectations.
Great day, well worth the cost and enabled us to learn and see more in our own time and not be herded around as the bus tours were

“Cruise Ship Day Excursions”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

Used Iceland Unlimited to organise two wheelchair accessible day trips whilst visiting Iceland on a cruise. Visited Blue Laggon (which i managed to get into) and surrounding area on day 1 and then did Golden Circle tour on day 2. Most areas are very accessible for electric wheelchair. Guide was very informative and very helpful. Excellent company to deal with, would certainly use again.

“Amazing personalized tour of Golden Circle and sights of Iceland”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

I had reached out to several companies prior to coming to Iceland looking for a personalized tour of the Golden Circle. From the beginning, Iceland Unlimited stood on with its prompt service, professional correspondence, and readiness to answer my many questions.

Our tour guide was Kristjan. He was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and took us off the beaten path a few times for interesting sites (and great pictures!). He was eager to share the amazing history and culture of Iceland with us and his enthusiasm was contagious. Outside of our tour time together, he also had really good local recommendations on where to go and what to do. We could not have had a better guide during our stay. It really makes a difference in visiting a country and experiencing it - and he and Iceland Unlimited were amazing.
