Over the 2018-2019 holiday break I decided to take my three late teen and early 20’s sons to Iceland. I am very lucky to have identified Deluxe Iceland run by Sigurður Magnússon as my tour organizer. Sig was extremely helpful in putting together a trip tailored to my requests. In our case, we were looking for adventure and high energy and with Sig’s help we were able to pack in snow mobiling, dune buggying and ATVing— all while taking in the stunning features of Iceland’s landscape. Sig recommended excellent hotels and the drivers that met with us every day were extremely nice and knowledgeable. Sig was patient as well, as I had to change my dates a couple of times in the planning process. All in all- a 10 plus!!

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.

My husband, twin 15 yo teens and I traveled to Iceland in March for one week and had a truly amazing experience! From beginning planning stages to the very end we were treated with customized and highly personalized care. All activities were hand crafted for our level of ability and interest for adventure. Our accommodations were first class and met all expectations. The restaurants, food, and service along the way was top notch. Sig, the owner and our guide Andri were the epitome of professionals. They were extememly knowledgeable and eager to share about their country. They were friendly and affable. They went above and beyond in every way. We have travelled the world with many high end groups and this is an outstanding outfit. I highly recommend them without hesitation. In fact we will definitely return and use them again in the future. We look forward to seeing Iceland in all its glory in the summer months. Kudos Deluxe Iceland!!
