3 Day Tour To Jokulsarlon Ice Cave With Golden Circle, Glacier Hiking & Northern Lights

Based on 110 traveller reviews

Join this 3-day winter tour of Iceland's spectacular south coast to see the best winter attractions Iceland has to offer! Besides visiting the famous Golden Circle attractions that include Thingvellir national park, the Golden Falls and Geysir geothermal area, you'll also see the wonders of South Iceland.

You'll be picked up at your accommodation and spirited down south coast: the most popular and beautiful area of Iceland. With milder weather than much of the north, you’ll hopefully have an easy experience with the morning mists giving way to golden sunshine in the afternoon. The southern coast contains gorgeous waterfalls, infamous volcanoes, the black, volcanic sandy beach Reynisfjara and a number of glaciers that you'll have the chance to explore both from the inside and outside!

You'll visit an ice cave within Europe's largest glacier, with centuries-old transparent ice that's stunningly blue. In the fall, once the weather has gotten cold enough, specialists begin to explore the area around Vatnajökull glacier to find a cave which is safe and filled with ice sculptures, rippling walls of ice, and rock formations touched with frost and icicles.

These structures collapse each spring when the weather warms, so even if you have gone ice caving in the past, each tour is a unique and rare experience.

You'll also admire the icebergs floating around in Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, and visit the nearby Diamond Beach. Be sure to bring your camera to catch a photo of the seals playing on the ice while seabirds cry overhead.

On a clear night, you’ll be able to behold the natural wonder of the Northern Lights.

This tour has everything a visitor to Iceland longs to see! Don't miss it. Check availability by choosing a date.

Daily itinerary

Day 1 - The South Coast to Höfn




Your trip will begin by driving the stunning south coast of Iceland. On the way, you'll visit two stunning waterfalls in the south of Iceland: Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. The former is a narrow waterfall that is popular for the fact that you can walk behind it and around it, the latter is wider and thunders down next to a mountain path leading up to the infamous Eyjafjallajökull volcano. From there you'll view the spectacular cracks and rivulets of ice during your glacier Expedition with Troll Expeditions on the Sólheimajökull glacier tongue.

You'll also admire the black sandy beach at Reynisfjara and the impressive sea stacks of Reynisdrangar before continuing through a picturesque lava field before reaching Vatnajökull National Park, Europe's second largest national park.

At Skaftafell Nature Reserve, you'll enjoy the gorgeous landscapes where this oasis nestles under the great Vatnajökull glacier. This is where the famous Hollywood movie Interstellar and American TV series Game of Thrones were shot.

After admiring Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon in the afternoon light, you'll make your way to Hotel Höfn, where you'll spend the night. Be sure to try the seafood at dinner. As a fishing center, Höfn has some of the freshest lobster you'll ever taste! If the Aurora forecast is good and the cloud cover allows you'll spend the evening looking overhead for breathtaking Northern Lights from the hotel vicinity.


Day 2 - Ice Cave and Glacier Lagoon




Today, you'll will go for our ice cave tour. You'll first jump in a modified truck that can cross the thick ice to make your way to your destination.

Since the ice caves are natural and formed by rivers made of melting ice each summer, they will always vary in size and shape. When the weather is too warm, the caves will be full of water and cannot be entered, so be aware that it will always be up to your guide to decide which cave to go to and if it is safe to enter. Safety is most important to your tour operator.

After 45 minutes inside Europe's largest glacier, you will head to Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon - one of Iceland's most stunning locations. A number of films and music videos have been shot here, as the scenery is quite something! A large deep blue lagoon, right next to the white and black glacier, full of enormous white and blue icebergs that fall off the glacier. As a bonus you can see plenty of friendly seals relaxing in the water and on the ice. Where the lagoon meets the sea there is a black, sandy beach covered with chunks of ice that the Atlantic sea crashes on, called Diamond Beach.

You'll drive back along the south coast in the afternoon and stay in either Hótel Eyjafjallajökull or Hótel Katla. You have a second chance to catch the Northern Lights in the evening as you relax and gaze at the stars.


Day 3 - The Golden Circle




Today you'll see a stunning waterfall, as well as some geothermal activity and Iceland's beloved national park Þingvellir.

We'll be driving the Golden Circle, consisting of Iceland's most famous and most popular natural attractions. First you'll visit Gullfoss waterfall, or the Golden waterfall, considered by many Iceland's most beautiful waterfall as it cascades into a beautiful canyon in two stages.

The next stop will be at Geysir geothermal area, where you can see the geyser Strokkur erupt up to 40 m (131 ft) high, every few minutes. A number of other hot springs and mud pools are in the area, but Strokkur is the only erupting geyser.

Then you'll come to Thingvellir National Park, Iceland's only national park that's also a UNESCO heritage site. You'll get the chance to walk between two continents in the park's biggest rift and admire the fascinating geology of this location. This is where you can see the second waterfall of today, Öxarárfoss, that falls into the Almannagjá rift.

We'll continue to search the skies for the Northern Light on our way back, stopping to admire them if we spot them.

You'll be back in Reykjavík in the evening.

I had a fantastic 3 days your with our guide Kristian and driver Taldid, they kept us entertained the entire way. If you know a bit about singing and guitar, then you might be in for a treat on the 2nd night, where you can go Karoke at this hotel. Extra note: Bring water proof pants, jackets and gloves GoPro would be nice when climbing the glacier Free WiFi on the tour bus Dinner is expensive (about 3900 isd ) at hotel but delicious ~ Be ready to walk for up to 3 hours

My 3 day tour across southern Iceland was wonderful. We were incredibly lucky that the weather was warm and clear for 2 out of the 3 days. Our guide Loftur did a great job making fun extra stops to break up the long drives. We ate home made ice-cream, pet Icelandic horses, saw a washed out bridge, and explored moss covered lava fields. All things that weren't on the itinerary but were welcome diversions. Our Guide Loftur and driver Hawk were obviously very proud of the country and their enthusiasm showed. We didn't get to explore the ice cave because of recent rain, and clouds obscured the sky each night, but the rest of the country was so beautiful I didn't even mind. This was a great trip all around.

Amazing tour. Oddur Ari and Bjarni are great

It was love at first sight with Iceland. We had a wonderful time. The tour was excellent. Although the weather was dreary, our tour guide Julia was like a sunshine, keeping everyone's spirits up with her facts and anecdotes about iceland as we go about. We spent an ample amount of time in every stop, i never felt rushed. There was wifi on board which was great for travel blogging. The accomodations they provided were great as well. Just a heads up though, food (everything, actually) in Iceland is ridiculously expensive. Overall, we're extremely satisfied and definitely coming back.

Excellent tour! Iceland offers an incredible diversity of natural highlights. Be prepared to encounter all kinds of weather -- if you are dressed right, it actually adds to the fun (too much sunshine is soooo boring!!). And if you have Rognvaldur ("Rocky") as a guide it will be fun ALL the way - including great stories and an eclectic choice of music during the may hours you spend on the bus going from one fantastic spot to the next. Haukur was a great driver, especially when we hit the storm and he bravely (and very safely) steered our bus to our various destinations. Definitely a MUST DO. Many thanks to our guide and driver for three unforgettable days on Iceland's awesome southern coast.

I fell in LOVe with Iceland because of this trip. The tour guide and driver were great. I alway felt safe and taken cared of. The sites that you visit are magical...the beauty is unreal. I can wait until I am able to go back.

Also special thanks to our tour guide Rebecca who is not only so knowledgeable about the history of Iceland but also an expert on camera who shows us how to take amazing pictures.

Hakon is a perfect guide! He real do well in leading and driving. He also have some perfect ideas of interesting place such as some beautiful and unknown glaciers. The hotel is also comfortable and nice. I really enjoy this travel. Thanks to Hakon!

What a amazing experience. After 3 days trip, we are left in awe with the amazing beauty of Iceland diversified landscape. Special thanks to our wonderful driver Thor and guide Rebecca for your kindness caring nature and sense of humor throughout the trip that make us feel being in a big family and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the trip. Also Thor is a great story teller which makes the tour even more interesting. Looking forward to our next trip with you guys.

This was the best tour we have ever been on! Definitely made our Iceland trip. Aurora Hunters was a great company to work with. They take care of ya. We are so glad we went with them. Thanks guys!!

This was the most amazing experience of my life seeing what all I saw on this tour. The glaciers, the northern lights, everything was even cooler than I had imagined. I am so glad I booked this tour. You cover so many things in just 3 days, its hard to believe I saw as much as I did and experienced way more than if I had rented a car and did it myself as I had first thought about. Plus it was Winter with snow and ice so I felt safer letting someone else drive and us rest from the Jet-lag! Our driver and guide Dagur was great. He kept us on pace, told us a lot about the area, and was fun to get to know better in the evenings. He did a great job rounding everyone up at each stop and keeping an eye on us. He told us a lot about Icelandic culture and helped us learn to pronounce the language! I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone. The highlight of our trip by far!

Thanks to this three-day tour and our nice driver-guide Thorsteinn, my husband and I had really an amazing experience in Iceland. We've travelled in about 30 countries in Asia, Europe, America and Africa, still Iceland has really been a real surprise and the most fabulous one The tour including the main sights in southern Iceland is very safe and cost-effective. Thorsteinn is a charming local guy with great sense of humor, as well as a safe driver and a professional guide with passion to this work. He even showed us to some extra places not inclued in this tour, waterfalls, valley, glaciers, a close contact with the cutest icelandic horses, even a farm where we could eat the delicious housemade icecreams. Folks, if you haven't been to Iceland yet, don't hesitate any more, come!!! This is an amazing island. Given the strong wind and frosted route, not mentioned super jeep, crushers, ice axe needed in the ice cave and glacier hiking, I would suggest just book the tour on Guide to Iceland rather than rent a car and drive by yourself in winter. Come and enjoy!!!

This trip is amazing, especially the glacier walking. I thought this trip is a little expensive, but now I don't think so. The guide Loftur and driver Oli are very nice, on the second day we had only two destinations in plan, so they brought us to other interesting and beautiful places, really thank them.

I don’t know if my opinion would be appropriate because I was with you in 9-14 Feb. 2016. I’ve already passed over my opinion. I repeat – mine main goal for visit was to photograph Ice caves under Vatnajokull glacier. Unfortunately this very part of the trip was absolutely unacceptable. Cave we were brought in was very small packed with two tourists groups ( over 30 people). No match what so ever to caves you show on your commercial leaflets. Other aspects of tour were OK.

I had an amazing experience with Aurora Hunters. The tour group is small and intimate and our guide Rocky showed us many hidden gems away from the major tourist attractions. We had some special moments including a second stop at the Skogafoss waterfall at night under the full moon. Many thanks to Doddi our driver and Rocky our guide.

Very good experience, the tour guide is also our driver, very funny, and very responsible. Schedule is very reasonable, the tour guide is a very experienced. The short 3 days help me find the nice iceland, perfect tour!

For a short 3 days, we definitely covered a lot of ground. Thanks for making the most of our short trip! Not one to usually book package tours when traveling, this experience was surprisingly great for the short time we had in Iceland. From pickup to drop off, Aurora Hunters and our amazing guide Eyrun did a great job of safely packing in the sights, easy activities, history, folklore, interesting facts, and a few laughs that we might not have enjoyed doing a self-drive trip given the weather, short winter days and drive conditions. The tour was a good size with about 18 ppl in the group. The van was pretty new and very comfortable with nice amenities like wifi and usb ports. Haukur our driver was a champion on the road (and off road :)) and genuinely a nice friendly person. We did some of the usual must see sights but when we had time and when weather wasn't on our side, Eryun and Haukur found amazing plan Bs (some of which we preferred as they were more off the beaten track). This tour is pretty mellow and more about seeing sights and learning about Iceland, so if you're looking for something super physical and adventurous you might want to consult them for a more challenging tour. As an aside, if anyone is curious or has dietary restrictions, as this is a tour where you're traveling and Iceland is relatively less populated you may want to plan ahead and bring snacks. Dinners at the hotel were lovely but being in remote locations your only option. We also got a chance to meet Aurora Hunter's owner when we popped into the Guide to Iceland office and he was super helpful and genuine. He invited us to join another outing (as we were unable to do the ice cave during our tour due to weather) and gave us great suggestions for other places to visit on our own. Thanks Aurora Hunters for helping us fall in love with Iceland. Definitely keen to return and try new adventures in this lovely country.

That would be the best trip I've done ever for sure. Eyrún Lydía and her partner are very nice tourist Guide , she always shared stories about iceland to us , let this 3 days tour became more meaningful. although the bad weather disrupted all itinerary , but Lydia still tried her best to do adjustment. if travelling to iceland again, i still will choose Guide to iceland and hope the tourist guide is Lydia as well.

Perfect tour. Amazing adventure!

Iceland is a very beautiful and special place. even the weather was not very good when we were here , but still very love iceland and this trip is a very wonderful memory and fantastic adventure . here, thank for Eyrún Lydía and her partner , Lydía is a very nice tourist Guide , she shared many stories about iceland to us , let this 3 days tour became more meaningful. although the bad weather disrupted all itinerary , but Lydia still tried her best to do adjustment. if travelling to iceland again, i still will choose Guide to iceland and hope the tourist guide is Lydia as well.

Very nice tour, highly recommended. Highlight: the tour guide is energetic, interesting and friendly. Even though the weather in Iceland in Winter is tough, it's still worthwhile to make a visit in Winter.

This was the best trip I've donever for sure. Hotels were good, our guide was amazing, and the landscapes were the most beautiful I have ever seen. Also, you learn a lot about Iceland and it's culture throughout the trip, and now I'm in love with Iceland. Definitely recommended

This tour was, without a doubt, the most spectacular experience I´ve had in my life. Anna was the best guide. The places we visited were perfect, the wonderful landscapes makes this trip a unique experience. I think is a Must-do in everyone´s bucket list

Really nice trip! Very good guides! They warned us about nothern lights in the middle of the night! Absolutely recommended!!

I took a 3-day-tour visiting the ice cave, and it was great. The tour guide and the driver were very friendly and helpful. On day 3, the tour guide David took us to the Golden Circle. He had deep knowledge about Iceland's history and culture, never stopped entertaining us throughout the journey. I really appreciate it, thanks!

This tour was an amazing experience during winter time in Iceland. A lot thanks to Aya our guide and our driver!

The tour was a great way to explore Iceland during the winter times. David Ingi was our guide and Stefen G was our driver, they both have done a marvelous job!! Unfortunately we did not catch the northern light during the trip but the glacier hiking and ice cave were just amazing! Thank you for an amazing trip!!

The 3-days tour was excellence with helpful and knowledge guide David and Driver Hermann. I joined the tour on Dec 10-12 and the weather was not stable on this three days, i thought that i have tried the rainy, cloudy and snowing day on these three days respectively. Except the sunny day i can't enjoy it and unfortunately we can't catch the chance to see Northern Light, this should be one of my regret during the Nordic trip. Anyway, David did a great job and i will definitely recommend my friends whom visit Iceland to join this tour to experience the Ice and Fire

we do have a good time with our best guide David Ingi and our very nice driver Atli. and we will definitely recommend our friends to take this tour.

David ingi and Herman were professional, high energy and knowledgeable. Highly recommend asking for them. Went December 9-11 -Fantastic value, would do it again in a heartbeat.

David and Herman!!! I ll come to iceland again! Niceland!

I am so lucky to have joined this tour, guided by AA team - Agnes (who is not only a great tour guide, but also a lovely singer/dancer) and Atli (very safe driver with good speed, on time arrival). They are sunny people for our 8 people group in this rainy and windy season. We completed all the routes with group effort (walking together in big big wind for 2 hours back and forth, glacier walk in big rain, etc) and had great time with our lovely AA. Highlights were definitely the magnificent blue diamond ice cave, many of the huge waterfalls. Although the weather hasn't favored us this time, no aurora found, but we will come back again! Wish AA team enjoy their future trips and have fun all the way with every new group!

My friend and I just came back from the 3-day trip in Iceland with Aurora Hunters . We are wowed by Iceland, as well as our tour guide David Ingi and driver Thor Ostensen. It is a once in a lifetime experience, and David and Thor were simply passionate, knowledgeable and attentive. The 3-day route is very well planned. The winter day time is short but we still managed to get the most of it. Glacier hiking, diamond beach, glacier lagoon, ice cave, golden circle, sunrise at the sea, northern lights ... I will cherish the wonders of Iceland in my memory forever! David and Thor gave us incredible information on history, geography, culture, food, etc, and we certainly learned a lot about Iceland. If you have a tour with those two guys, you are surely in good hands. Thank you!!!

We took the 3-day tour of iceland with Aurora Explorers over an unseasonably warm (for December) and rainy period. Our guide and driver were Agnes and Ackla (I probably misspelled that, sorry!) -- the "A Team". Despite some weather-related scheduling issues, we hit every point on the itinerary, plus two others: the black waterfall, and a crashed plane, both of which were awesome experiences. Agnes and Ackla both helped keep a fun/funny and laid-back atmosphere, which was perfect for our group. It would be exhausting to hit all these sights and mini-tours in such a short time-period while driving on your own, and it's great to have a knowledgeable tour guide providing info along the way, so I'd definitely recommend this tour to anybody visiting Iceland for a few days.

This is the best trip we've joined ever in Iceland!! Our guide David Ingi and the driver Thor Ostensen (both from Aurora Hunters) is so nice and extremely knowledgeable, they told us history and interesting stories about where we visited and even where we are passing by, we are so glad to have toured with them. All places we've visited is stunning and breathtaking, the ice cave, golden circle, glacier hiking, diamond beach and wonderful northern lights...etc., thanks for giving us such a great experience in Iceland. It is absolutely a good choice for those who is deciding to visit Iceland, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

I highly recommend this 3-day tour as a relaxed way to enjoy a great deal of the southern coast of Iceland. We took this tour with David Ingi and Thor, who went out of the way to make sure we had an excellent time. The bus is quite comfortable (which even includes WiFi) and the ride is very smooth while traveling this sparsely populated country. Apart from the tours listed above, David and Thor also would stop at many locations along the way to get the best sights and a glimpse of the Northern Lights. Compared to figuring out an itinerary and driving hundreds of KM on our own, this was a much easier way to enjoy Iceland on a quick Thanksgiving trip.

Had a fantastic adventure with the 16 people group on a comfortable minibus and guided by Hakon, who not only lead us to the main atractions but also to places like a greenhouse farm or a hot spring local area to give us other perspectives of Iceland way of life. Besides, he delighted us with lots of details about icelandic society and its astounding levels of civility and stardards of living. And... we saw the Aurora despite the rainy and cloudy days! :) The tour is fantastic and worth every krona it costs. You'll get a far better experience than driving by slippery roads on your own! Very recommendable!

I love the trip! The guide Helgi and the driver are so nice and helpful. They knew how to have a wonderful and safe trip well. Our bus was big and warm for 10 people. I enjoyed the trip so much!

The trip was simply fantastic and unforgettable! The itinerary is well designed -- packed with plenty of beautiful sceneries and fun activities including glacier hiking and ice cave exploration while leaving us plenty of time to enjoy the places. The accommodation and transportation were taken care of so as someone who's on vacation I really didn't need to worry much. As for the tour guides, I couldn't ask for better guides than David Ingi and Thor. Both of them are friendly, knowledgeable, and very attentive. Thor is a professional photographer and gave us many great tips on how to best photograph aurora. Whenever there was a good view and some extra time, he stopped so we can all capture the moment. He was very kind in sharing the pictures with us after the trip. David introduced us a great deal about Iceland including the culture, history, geography, cuisine, and so on. We had many great and funny conversations throughout the days. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to explore Iceland in depth by getting out of Reykjavik and talking with people who are passionate about showing the best parts of their country to you!

This trip is wonderful! I had a very professional guide Davis and driver Hokon, they gave me a nice, amazing and safe trip in these three days. They introduced a lot of information about Iceland and also they shared their secret favorite sightseeing point to us. In these three days, we went to all the famous point in south of Iceland. They bring us to delicious restaurant for dinner. The lobster in Hofn was so fresh and the Icelandic pizza in Vik was great too. I strongly recommend this tour to everybody.

Very well run tour. Kristjan the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable.The hotels were all very clean and comfortabel beds. Our Driver was Atli and he was so nice aswell. Thank you both for a great 3 days, it went so quickly.

Wonderful trip and breathtaking landscapes! I went on the 3 Day Tour to Jokulsarlon Ice Cave with Golden Circle, Glacier Hiking & Northern Lights, and the title falls short (very short!) of all the sites we actually got to visit. My group’s guide was David Ingi and our driver/guide Thor Ostensen (both from Aurora Hunters); they were very friendly and attentive to the group’s inquiries and extremely passionate about what they do. David told us lots of facts and stories about Islanders and their customs and Thor showed us additional locations during our commute and gave us wonderful recommendations to photograph the Northern Lights (he also shared his Northern Light photos with the group, see profile picture). Glacier hiking and the blue diamond ice cave are particularly stunning; Diamond Beach and black sand beach are spectacular and incredibly beautiful; food and accommodations were fantastic. We got to do everything on the schedule –notwithstanding the weather– and a lot more. This trip was an amazing experience, I highly recommend this tour, it is packed of wonderful views!

Fantastic time! Our guide was Lovisa and our driver was Stefan. Both were extremely attentive to the needs of the tour and you could really tell they were in it 100%. So glad to have toured with them!

It was great to have visited the essential places with our guide Christian. He told us history and interesting stories about where we visited and even where we were passing by. Hotels we stayed were small and beatiful local ones, moreover It was such a wonderful lunch at the beatiful tomato green house. It was the best tomato soup I have ever had. It was absolutely good choice to travel with Guide to Iceland and Christian. See you around!!

The trip was excellent. I went on it with two of my friends. Our trip guide was Siggi and driver Herman. Both of them were very relaxed, friendly and had excellent sense of humor. Siggi has shown us additional beautiful locations not mentioned in the trip description, like the Fjadrargljufur canyon. The 3 days of the trip were jam-packed with wonderful views, yet we had plenty of time to enjoy the nature and take pictures. The trip bus and hotels were of high quality. Overall, I would definitely recommend this trip and especially Siggi and Herman!

Amazing experience with some great people. The guides were amazing. We went glacier hiking, which was incredible, and went inside a glacier cave. The pictures we got from there were amazing and to top it all we also saw the northern lights both nights. Thank you very much to Oli for recommending this tour to us!

We really enjoyed this 3 day/2 night Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, Golden Circle, Ice Cave, Glacier Walk . We were picked up promptly from our hotel. After they completed all the pickups we transferred to a small bus and headed to the Golden Circle. We were in a group of 20 people. Our driver and tour guide was named was great. He was very friendly, informative and hospitable. We got to see and do so much that I am sure many people who visit Iceland miss out on. Especially the adventurous parts like the Ice Cave Tour and the Glacier Walk. Also our Glacier Guide was fantastic. We had a great 3 day trip , and they give you 3 full days, as we did not get back to our hotel until 11pm. I would definitely recommend this tour. We took this tour back in Feb 2016, but my initial review never showed up, so I am resubmitting it now.

Joined this tour with two friends last winter and we had an amazing time. The ice cave is probably the most beautiful place I have been to. Our guide was cute and funny and made the whole tour even better. I have recommended this trip to everyone I have spoken to since coming home and will continue to do so. You can book it without hesitation.

Best trip ever, we saw the northern lights, went glacier hiking and visited an ice cave.... what else could you want. This tour is perfect!

Incredible trip! Hotels were perfect and our guide was very professional and fun. I enjoyed the glacier hiking a lot and the ice cave too. There was another group inside the ice cave so it was hard to get good pictures without people on them. Our guide just waited until the other group left and gave us enough time to enjoy this amazing natural wonder. If you can only go on one tour in Iceland... this should be the one!

I joined this three day tour as part of a 5 day package I booked with Guide to Iceland for me and my boyfriend. It was the first time we booked a package like this so we were a bit worried. But after our first day in Iceland we noticed that everything was perfectly planned and that everything we booked with them was high quality. This tour especially was a lot of fun and the group we had was great. We were only 6 people travelling together which really led to us getting to know each other and we made a few good friends along the way. The guide, Ingo, was fantastic and took us out to see the northern lights whenever there was a chance to see them. Finally on the third night we got to see them. But without a doubt the best part of the trip was seeing the ice cave. I highly recommend this tour with Guide to Iceland. Their service is the best!

This is a must go tour with nice tour guide and all tourist’s spots have gone through, I love the ice cave and the glacier, amazing!

FEEDBACK (Great in some parts and disappointing in some others) - 3.5 Rating out of 5. Day 1 - 24.12.15 Airport Transfer - Grayline - Pick up and drop service - Excellent. Accommodation - Hótel Leifur Eiriksson Skólavörðustígur 45, 101 Reykjavík. Excellent Stay – Highly Recommend the hotel location, the concierge, nice cosy rooms, simple yet sumptuous breakfast, great tea and coffee lounge. Very helpful and friendly staff. Special mention about Mr. Farooq at the concierge desk who was very helpful and gave perfect directions to places around. Day 2 - 25.12.15 Grayline – Pick up and Drop – Spot on , timely and very very well co-ordinated. Blue lagoon - Worth a visit – Relaxing and completely breathtaking experience. However, there was an overbooking issue on 25th December. This definitely needs to be managed better by the blue lagoon staff. Accommodation - Hótel Leifur Eiriksson Skólavörðustígur 45, 101 Reykjavík. Same as already provided. Holiday Season 3 Day Tour | Ice cave, Glacier Lagoon & Northern Lights Day 3 - 26.12.15 (Day 1 of 3 day tour) 2 waterfalls in the south of Iceland: Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. The infamous Eyjafjallajökull volcano. Black sandy beach Reynisfjara and sea stacks Reynisdrangar. - The mentioned sightseeing was done. All very beautiful and excellent locations. Northern Lights - However, As per itinerary, "In the evening we'll be looking out for the breathtaking Northern Lights from the hotel." – There was no such activity undertaken at all. Highly disappointing. Why was the activity not taken up? This money must be refunded. Accommodation - Hotel Stay was very good. Spacious, clean and comfortable rooms and very good breakfast. Day 4 - 27.12.15 - (Day 2 of 3 day tour) Ice Caving - Was cancelled due to bad weather. We were promised by the guide Elsa that you will be emailing us with the refund amount for the same. This amount for the cancelled activity must be refunded. Please confirm the same. Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach – Very good. Northern Lights - Again – there was no attempt at doing an aurora search this evening too. Highly disappointing. Why was the activity not taken up? Kindly refund the money for the same. Accommodation - was at Hotel Katla – Good Food and Cozy Rooms. Excellent Wifi. Day 5 - 28.12.15 (Day 3 of 3 day tour) Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir geothermal area, Thingvellir National Park, walk between two continents – Excellent day out. Northern Lights - As per itinerary "We'll continue to search the skies for the auroras on our way back, stopping to admire them if we do see them." – No such activity was taken up even on the 3rd day consecutively. Why was the activity not taken up? Kindly refund the money for the same. Accommodation - Center Hótel Klöpp Klapparstígur 26, 101 Reykjavík - OK Accommodation – Good for a short 1 or 2 day stay. Good part was – proximity to gray line bus and city center. Day 6 - 29.12.15 Airport Transfer - Grayline – Pick up and Drop – Spot on , timely. Excellent service. GUIDE The guide ELSA was very good in her narration and details about the various sites that we visited. DRIVER The driver JONAS was really nice and friendly and drove very well. However, the biggest down point was that the itinerary that was shared with us was not available / shared with ELSA and hence she did not have answers to most of our questions related to the itinerary etc. This is the responsibility of guidetoiceland to ensure the same. It is disappointing that this was not done by the guidetoiceland team.

春节假期去的,由于中国游客太多,旅行社临时加了团,所以我们的导游是临时来的,虽然是个漂亮又很nice的荷兰妹子,但是不得不说她作为导游的专业性实在太弱,一路的讲解很少,仅有的讲解也像是在读书,很多行程安排也都是先问司机,再转述给团员,由于天气不好导致的行程调整更是让其他团的导游来传达通知。 除此之外,景点、住宿安排都很不错。
