What our clients have to say

Deluxe Iceland is Flawless

Treva, July 2019

WOW! It’s impossible to find the words to express how thankful we are for our experience with Deluxe Iceland and our time the owner, Sigurður Magnússon. Our trip was flawless from the moment we were picked up until the very last minute as our adventure came to an end. The only direction I gave them were the dates, areas we wanted to explore and we were up for anything. I’m so happy I left it all up to them. They did not disappoint! Our entire stay was seamless, every excursion, every private guide, every meal and accommodation worked out perfectly. We were never waiting or confronted with any obstacle. Every detail was perfectly executed. Sig went the extra step to take group pictures, help us with our gear before and after excursions, handled our luggage as we traveled to different hotels along the coast, you name it, he was always there to ensure we had no worries or stress along the way. Deluxe Iceland also has beautiful vehicles that are immaculate and fully equipped with, WiFi, changing cords, water bottles and GPS monitors that track where you have been and to show where you will be going. However, the best part of about our booking through Deluxe Iceland was spending time with Sig. He is a tremendous ambassador to Iceland. He is very knowledgeable about his country and conveys the information so nicely as you travel throughout the country. It’s far better than trying to travel the country without a guide. With Sig doing the driving my husband and I were both able to enjoy the scenery and learn far more about Iceland than we could through a guide book. We also had our teenage daughter with us. He made sure we stopped often enough to feed a growing teenager. So thankful!! We also got plenty of time alone, Sig would join us through a portion of our hikes and then allow us to enjoy the rest of the hike to explore at our pace. We mentioned things we would like to see if possible while on the trip and he wove them in seamlessly throughout the days, such as, Icelandic horses, puffins, reindeer, Arctic Turns nesting area, waterfalls that are not on any map, local celebrities, Icelandic food, including pizza and cinnamon rolls and drinks. Everything we brought up in conversation some how he made happen. Such a wonderful guide. He made sure we checked all the boxes. This vacation is going in the books as one of the best vacation ever. We are already talking about when we can return and use Sig and his team at Deluxe Iceland again.

Itinerary

    When you arrive in Iceland at Keflavik Airport, your private driver and Deluxe Iceland representative will greet you at the arrivals hall and take you to Reykjavik to pick-up your rental car and go through your trip itinerary in detail with you at your hotel. After settling in you will have the rest of the day to explore this northernmost capital city of the world with its abundance of museums, restaurants and bars to suit all tastes.

    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, where you will see Reynisdrangar Cliffs (Approx. drive 1 hours 10 minutes).  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 which you can walk right up to. On your way back you will stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall before your guide will take you back to your hotel for the night. 

    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.
