This was my first trip to Iceland and I was looking for some adventure and some relaxing. When I found Deluxe Iceland I knew this was the company for me. From the initial inquiry to the airport drop off the level of professionalism from everyone I meet and interacted with was top notch. My guide Unnar was simply fantastic. I was traveling solo and he made sure to get photos for me. The days were planned out perfectly and we adjusted as needed for weather. I can’t wait to start planning my next Iceland adventure with Deluxe Iceland!

My wife wanted to go to Iceland with friends and family for a special occasion due in part to the wonderful trip organized by Deluxe Iceland in 2019. I called on them again, but this trip was larger with 20 people coming in from several countries. Sig, Viktor and their excellent staff pulled it all together without a glitch. They are knowledgeable and professional with on the ground white glove service. The real asset in this outfit is the team. These people genuinely care about their country and their special guests who visit. In a few days, we visited the Spa at the Retreat, visited waterfalls, local restaurants, glacier walked, and bathed in the northern lights from the hot tubs at the Hotel Ranga. I think they will get more business from our guests, who want to return to this magical country.

We had an action packed and thoroughly enjoyable 4 days in Iceland thanks to Deluxe Iceland and our tour guide, David. Victor was fantastic in pulling together the itinerary with excellent communication. David was supremely knowledgeable, patient and thoughtful. We had a wonderful time with him on our snowy, cold and stunningly beautiful 4 days - his driving skills are seriously next level!

Deluxe Iceland organized an incredible vacation for our family. Our bespoke itinerary was tailored to us. A food tour, snowmobiling, ATVs, a lava tunnel and even the Northern Lights. Incredible!Critical to the experience are the guides and they are second-to-none. David was our main guide and he was knowledgeable and fun. During our activities, David would shoot video and pics and it was great to see our family in action. Bjartur and Paul were also wonderful, all three guides prepped us for the elements.I give Deluxe Iceland my highest recommendation!

We schedule a week visit to Iceland at the end of Sept for the week of Thanksgiving through Victor at Deluxe Iceland. They gave our family of 5 (ages 13, 15, and 18) what we all consider the best vacation we have ever had and we have Deluxe Iceland to thank! They tailored the entire trip to the type of activities our family enjoys while still managing for us to cover all of the highlights of Iceland at this time of the year. They also managed to do this within 6 weeks of visiting. Jonas was our private guide and driver the entire time. All 5 of us absolutely adored him and he added a number of things that made our trip special. He has the perfect balance of knowing how involved to be and when it is time to chill or have family time. We were able to see the Northern Lights our second night in Iceland and Jonas took the time to make sure we had all the family pictures we needed to create our Christmas card and then had hot chocolate brewing in the back of the car to our surprise. When it was too windy one day to snow mobile, he suggested we go on ATVs and it was definitely the most favorite thing for our boys. Every day was something new, wonderful and private. The restaurants were equally amazing and varied and Jonas managed to find places with the best fries- which was what was most important to my daughter. The country and people in Iceland are absolutely amazing. I want to go back in the summer and experience new things. Highlights of our trip were: ice caving, seeing the Northern lights, visiting a family for a day of life on a traditional dairy farm (which surprisingly was one of my kids favorite things), private yacht to see the whales, walking, shopping and eating around Reykjavik (definitely go to Apotek), 4 wheeling in the snow and seeing hidden waterfalls. Blue Lagoon is also a must and I would go upon arrival vs. on your way out. We arrived at 6:30am and were there by 8:15 and it was a perfect way to start after getting no sleep on the flight.

Deluxe Iceland was an amazing experience. Planning our itinerary with Viktor was a breeze. We didn’t have to think about anything once we decided on our trip. Our guide, Unnar, was so fun and knowledgeable. He kept us safe, got us everywhere we wanted to go, and was very flexible if we wanted to stop and check something out. The first trip where I could truly relax and enjoy the experience! Thank you!!

A memorable and wonderful trip through southern Iceland with Deluxe Iceland. Our guide, Jonas Karl, was the best! Viktor and Sig were so helpful in planning our itinerary and organzing everything. We have nothing but praise for their patience, responsiveness ,and knowledge of everything Iceland. The trip of a lifetime!!

After looking at several tour companies, we decided to go with Deluxe and we are SO happy we did ! Their tour hits all the highlights of southern Iceland and we loved every stop. Unnar, our private guide, made our trip truly wonderful and easy ! His happy, positive and enthusiastic disposition is contagious! He handles everything, makes sure you are comfortable and happy, is always on time, and is always patient. Unnar is the best! I highly recommend Deluxe Iceland and Unnar if you want a special and carefree trip!

Deluxe Iceland helped us put together a really special and memorable first trip to Iceland. We spent four days touring the Golden Circle and south coast with our awesome guide Unnar. He was fun, gentle, and a little bit silly in just the right combination for our nine-year-old daughter. My husband and I also really enjoyed speaking with him about his experience growing up in Iceland and hearing about his own love for exploring his country. We felt very taken care of; Unnar was constantly monitoring the weather and changing the order of our itinerary when necessary to help us dodge the rain and get clear views of the amazing sites. He also added in a few extra stops that weren’t on our itinerary and turned out to be especially memorable. We spent considerably more on this trip than we normally do, but we never felt like we were paying more than we should for the level of comfort and convenience provided by Deluxe Iceland. Highly recommend them and, especially, Unnar!

Eight of us spent nine wonderful days touring Iceland through Deluxe Iceland with our guide Unnar. We did all the major sights on the western and southern coasts. The natural beauty of the island was enhanced by the knowledge of our guide and his attention to every detail. Not sure how he did it but we had 8 days of sunny weather and mild temperatures and also got to see the Northern Lights. Unusual for that time of year.

So in the summer of 2020 my mom and I had a trip planned for Iceland, unfortunately the pandemic happen but Deluxe Iceland changed our trip for the following year, we were still did not want travel. Deluxe Iceland understood and pushed our trip for 2022. We finally went to Iceland on May 1st 2022, and had the greatest experience. Viktor and Sigurour were awesome at helping us out and super reliable people. Jonas was a great guide and great driver, and took us to all the place that we had planned out. Food was great and hotels were nice. Deluxe Iceland is a great company. Thank you for everything.

Deluxe Iceland provided the single best trip I have been on. Our tour guide (Jónas Karl) was kind, knowledgeable, and more than accommodating for our group, which ranged from ages 23 to 70. He maintained our itinerary in a professional and organized way, while giving us the flexibility to add or remove excursions if we were too tired or not tired enough. If you are traveling to Iceland, book through Deluxe Iceland and ask for Jónas!
My family and I just returned from a magical trip of a lifetime, exploring Iceland with Ingi, our amazing guide from Deluxe Iceland. From the moment we landed until we departed, Ingi took such thoughtful care of every detail. We spent ten days, with adventures that included fly fishing (we caught Arctic Char), boating among ice bergs in a glacial lagoon, hiking volcano crater rims, exploring waterfalls, puffin cliffs on the Westman Islands and bathing in geothermal pools. And every day we enjoyed amazing food, and beautiful hotels. Deluxe Iceland arranged an excellent itinerary and Ingi made sure our every need was taken care of. His knowledge of all things Icelandic made the trip a very rich experience.He even did advance research into my family's ancestral home in Isafjordur prior to our arrival and was able to take us directly to my great grandparents home, from which my family emigrated to Canada in 1898! Ingi's enthusiasm for our itinerary made it so much fun. Deluxe Iceland created a once in a lifetime magical trip for our family--one that we will be talking about for years to come!

We returned home today from one of the most magical vacations we have ever experienced. We were a group of 5 friends on a 10 day trip around the country and our amazing guide Jonas treated us like royalty. A more kinder, considerate and gentle man I have yet to meet. Jonas patiently took care of our every need - even as plans changed and changed back again. He was always super attentive and accommodating. He showed us the crazy stunning beauty of Iceland in tons of magical hidden secret places. Truth be told, I believe that Jonas is the hidden secret of Deluxe Iceland!!! When you book your vacation with them be sure to ask for him!!!

This was truly a once in a lifetime experience to a place none of us had ever been, made possible by Deluxe Iceland! Our tour guide, Jonas, in particular, made the trip extremely special. He took great care in making sure that all 11 members of our party, ranging in age from 2-77 years old, were happy, comfortable, and engaged in a wide range of activities. We were blown away by all the hidden treasures the island has to offer. We enjoyed breathtaking hikes to waterfalls, canyons, capes, caves, cliffs, volcanos, glaciers, and geothermal bathing, and were able to experience the local people and culture first hand at a local dairy farm and an extended stay at a private home in the countryside. If you want a first class trip where every detail is taken care of for you and meticulously planned out, Deluxe Iceland will take amazing care of you!

I trusted Deluxe Iceland to plan the trip of a lifetime for 10 friends of ours. Most who had never been to Iceland. Not knowing what to expect every single step of the way we were BLOWN away, by the attentiveness and attention to detail Deluxe Iceland executed. Each activity we had planned was elevated beyond our wildest beliefs. From our favourite drinks and food, to local traditions the team at Deluxe made us feel like the lead characters in a larger than life movie. I wish every country we visited had a Deluxe group of people. We WILL be back, and we will be sending people their way to truly have a mind blowing experience. Bravo. Above and truly beyond.

Private tour of ice caves amazing- our guide Pat snapped some amazing pictures of us. Lava center/farm visit pleasant personal touch. Blue lagoon -harsh outdoor weather but crazy wild experience. Jonas our guide great sense of humor and very knowledgeable about Icelandic culture as well as the sites we visited. Entire trip efficiently managed. Hotel Borg (elegant) and Ranga (rustic) excellent choices.

My family (parents and two children in early 30s) had a once in a lifetime experience in iceland with Deluxe Iceland, and with Sig as our guide. We spent 7 days traveling through the capital and several other remote locations via various types of transportation, and could not have had a more incredible time. The service was unmatched, with everything immaculately planned. We were able to experience one of the world's most naturally gifted countries via extremely professional service (Sig!). In addition, Deluxe Iceland has the best connections with the top restaurants in the country - we were able to get reservations last minute or drive to the best bakeries upon learning about them from friends / social media. If you are looking for unapparelled service and the best way to experience Iceland, you will NOT regret choosing Deluxe Iceland and ask for Sig as your guide!

Our trip was Amazing!!! Everything from the first email to get information to getting dropped off at the airport to head home went extremely well. Our tour guide was Jonas and he was extremely punctual, spoke English very well and was very knowledgeable. Many of the sites we were visiting had long rides, but we were never bored, we were constantly being educated on Iceland and the culture. We are already talking about a summer trip.
Sandy P - October 2021
Tour company handled EVERYTHING!! From pickup at airport to lunch and dinner reservations to arranging itinerary and adjustments as weather required, along with getting mandatory COVID tests to return home. They made everything so easy and stress free. Jonas was a wonderful tour guide. He didn’t explain everything until after we were at a sight, so we’d have the element of surprise and WOW!! Family of 4 adults all enjoyed immensely. All of the excursions they included on our itinerary were fabulous-from The Blue Lagoon to The Lava Center to a local farm for breakfast. And let’s not forget the waterfalls and black sand beach. Hotels they selected were wonderful as well. Wonderful trip-would highly recommend Deluxe Iceland!
