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!

My wife and I are just back from 10 wonderful days in Iceland. Our trip was expertly choreographed from start to finish by Deluxe Iceland. Viktor patiently worked to construct an itinerary that suited us and continued to work with us during our private tour as the famously unpredictable Icelandic weather conditions dictated "on the fly" changes. Tryggvi (sic), our private tour guide and driver, was a supremely knowledgeable guide who entertained us every day with his knowledge of and enthusiasm for “everything” Iceland – history, culture, food, glaciers, volcanoes, waterfalls, geysers, hikes, horses and even trolls!
So many highlights! Hard to choose one – hiking up a volcano; caving underneath a glacier; glimpsing the Northern Lights at Hotel Ranga, the helicopter ride over an erupting volcano, the in-water couples massage at the Retreat at the Blue Lagoon, the best fish and chips ever, …We both felt so rejuvenated after our Icelandic adventure; Thank you Viktor, Trggvi, all at Deluxe Iceland and the Icelanders who made it all so enjoyable.
Dave R - November 2021
Booking through Deluxe Iceland was great. We worked with Viktor and Sig who created a custom tour based on our interests. They handled everything (except the flights) to come up with a great experience for our first time to Iceland. Our guide, Jonas, spent 9 days with us and made sure everything was perfect. Last-minute changes were no problem. Recommendations for lunch and dinner were great even with special dietary requests. Top-notch, highly recommend them.
Diana - November 2021
What an amazing experience! Traveled with my mother (in her 70s). We selected the Winter Wonderland tour and customized it to our interests and skill level. We had the same tour guide the whole trip - Lulli who was wonderful. All the hotel selections were amazing (Hotel Borg, Fosshotel, Hotel Ranga, and Blue Lagoon Retreat Hotel). We spent the first couple of days exploring Reykjavik on our own and then toured Fagradalsfjall Volcano, Seljalandsfoss & Skogafoss waterfalls, Reynisfjara Beach, Vatnajökull National Park, Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, Diamond Beach, LAVA Center, Snowmobiling on Eyjafjallajokull Glacier, the Golden Circle, Reykjanes Peninsula, & Blue Lagoon. Everything about the experience was exceptional. The vehicle was very comfortable and had WiFi. All the lunch spot recommendations were delicious for local flavor. We felt very safe and taken care of the whole time. Highly recommend!

Word can not express how happy we are with our experience working with Deluxe Iceland. My husband and I took this trip to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and wanted it to be the best trip ever and Deluxe Iceland and our guide, Jonas, made sure they made that happen. Everything was meticulously planned out and Jonas has a love for and a knowledge of his country that shines through on each adventure he takes you on! From chasing and finding the Northern Lights on our first day, to relaxing and staying at the Retreat spa and hotel our last night and everything in between you can't go to Iceland and NOT use Deluxe Iceland! Thank you Viktor and Jonas for making this an anniversary to remember.
Deborah P - September 2019
My husband and I chose to celebrate our "retirement" by touring Iceland. We corresponded with Deluxe Iceland's owner, Sig, and from the initial email to the final farewell at the airport we were extremely impressed!! Sig and Fannar, consecutively, were our personal tour guides throughout our trip and both were very professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and personable. They listened to our wants and planned our trip accordingly. At the same time, they were more than willing to veer from the planned schedule if we spotted a "sight" along the route. Sig's mantra was "no stress" which made us feel relaxed and cared for!! (I have since decided to adopt that mantra!!) We had many great conversations and laughs with both Sig and Fannar and left Iceland feeling like we had made two new friends!! A big thank-you and cheers to Sig and Fannar for making our retirement trip a memory that we will forever treasure!! Bless, bless, Deborah and Bo Passey. (Ontario, Canada) P.S. We highly recommend Deluxe Iceland if Iceland is on your "bucket list."

Deluxe Iceland did an incredible job planning our family trip. We worked with Viktor for a few months ahead of time. He was informative and very patient, helping us plan the perfect trip for our family. He organized and took care of all the details in advance so we could enjoy our trip without any hassles. When we arrived in Iceland we were greeted by our unbelievable guide Andri who showed us around Iceland, taking us to the blue lagoon, the golden circle, a local farm visit, the lava center, snowmobiling, and so much more. He was so knowledgable, extremely personable and just such a nice person. He added so much to our trip and we would highly recommend requesting him if possible. Everyone at Deluxe Iceland was very helpful and accessible while we were there. Viktor and Siggi were always quick to respond if we had any last minute questions. We felt relaxed and comfortable throughout our whole trip. If you want to have THE experience that you'll remember forever, we highly recommend using Deluxe Iceland!

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.

If you want to have a first class, five star Iceland experience look no further then Deluxe Iceland. We just came back from a 6 day/5 night visit to the southern part of Iceland and it exceeded all of our expectations. Not only is the country beautiful and the people welcoming, friendly and safe, Sig has taken luxury travel and service to another level. From the moment you land to the moment you leave, every detail is accounted and designed around you! The schedule is your own, no rush or pressure, but Sig is ready to take you to all the best sights and his knowledge of Iceland and it’s history is unmatched (I asked a lot of questions!). I would recommend you just let Sig and his team set your days and you will not be sorry. He knows ALL the best sites across all of Iceland - the places tourists want to go, and some you may not know about. He also has access to all the best restaurants and can provide an elevated experience away from many of the crowds. Sig was always on time, always smiling and friendly, no request was off limits and he took us door to door, everyday, in a clean Mercedes Van with WiFi. He also has a few surprises along the way to fully immerse you in Icelandic culture, tradition and fun. I will be coming back and highly recommend Deluxe Iceland to anyone looking for a bucket list experience. Thank you Sig!!
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.

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!!
Bruce Marko, June 2018
Family trip to Iceland. Left all the details to Sig at Deluxe Iceland. Couldn't have been better! Perfectly planned and thought out. Something for all of us. Kids were never bored. Lulli and Sig were great guides!! Highly recommend this company if planning a trip to Iceland.

My wife and I were planning a little away free time for a few days to Iceland for our first visit, I happened on Deluxe Iceland and was very happy that we used Sig, the most important quality of any good business is service and he goes beyond to give you the best service possible. He is also very knowledgeable about the country and what it has to offer. We are planning to return and would highly recommend Deluxe Iceland as we plan to use them again
