What our clients have to say

Perfect trip!

Karen T, January 2019

Working with Sig, the company owner, over email, this trip came together very easily. I had certain things that I wanted to see and Sig filled in the rest. We went directly from the airport to the Blue Lagoon, and had a first class spa experience there that I didn’t even know was available (Thanks, Sig!). We stayed at Hotel Ranga for 3 nights, a great base for our day trips. Great place, delicious food. We had a super Jeep experience into the wilderness with Lulle, who entertained us all day with great Icelandic stories. Andri took us out for Northern Lights hunting. All of the guides were great! Knowledgeable, fun to talk to, always on time and eager to please. I can’t say enough about how great this tour company is. I wanted to visit the Saga Centre (museum) which is closed in the winter, and Sig got them to open just for me. Sig chose Hotel Borg for our last 2 nights in Reykjavik, a wonderful hotel in a great location. Couldn’t be happier.

Itinerary

    When you arrive in Iceland at Keflavik Airport, your private driver will greet you at the arrival hall and take you to relax in the Blue Lagoon Geothermal Spa where you will have access to the Retreat Spa and soak in geothermal waters. There is a restaurant in the Spa if you want to have a light meal. You can stay up to five hours in the Spa.  Afterwards your private driver will take you to your hotel.

    You will start the day by heading to the amazing Reykjanes Peninsula to enjoy a hike to the dormant volcano to see the newly formed lava formations and craters. The Land of Fire and Ice once again lived up to its name! Three volcanic eruptions in three years. Starting on March 19th, 2021 the eruption started in Geldingadalur valley, just south of Fagradalsfjall volcano ending in September the same year. Once again it started erupting in the same area at Meradalir valley from August 3rd to August 20th in 2022. Newly formed lava formations and craters can be seen. The hike will take approximately  1 – 2 hours each way, depending on how close you want to get, and the trail is conveniently marked. This is an ideal hike if the weather conditions are good. This is a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience and should not be missed! After all this head to Grindavík for a light lunch before taking a look at Gunnuhver hot spring, Reykjanesviti, and the bridge between two continents on your way back to Reykjavik.  

    You will start the day by stopping at the Lava Center before going to a local farm to get familiar with the Icelandic farm life and enjoy a cup of coffee and Icelandic Pancakes. Afterwards, top the day by going snowmobiling up on Eyjafjallajökull – the infamous glacier that erupted in 2010.

    On this day you will get right into the action and head straight for the beautiful Icelandic south shore. You will start the day by driving to the Black Sandy Beach, Reynisfjara (Approx. drive 1 hours 10 minutes). A guide will take you on the ice for a hiking tour on Sólheimajökull glacier. Afterwards you will be taken to see Skógafoss waterfall, which is one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland, with a drop of some 60 meters and a width of 25 meters, and you can walk right up to it. On your way back you will stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall before your guide will take you to your hotel in South Iceland for the night. 

    On the last day you will be picked up by a private driver and driven to the airport in time for your flight. *You have to be at Keflavik airport 2 hours before departure.
