Review of Unforgettable 8 Day Northern Lights Winter Package of Iceland with Ice Caving & National Parks

A truly memorable experience. We booked the winter wonderland tour and really couldn’t have asked for much more. Given that we arrived to emails cancelling plans for the first night and day, we had worried, but the team at Guide to Iceland dealt with it swiftly, reassuringly and professionally, rearranging plans within the hour. Could have been even better if they’d called us, in case we had missed the emails, but no problem really. Highlights of the trip for us were the ice & lava caves, the glacier & ice lagoon, but really it’s hard to find highlights among such a series of amazing experiences. Bad weather meant our Snaefellsness tour was rather limited and we didn’t catch the northern lights, but nothing we can do about that... guess we will have to come back! What we learned was how much your guide can make-or-break the trip, and for our south-coast tour we hit the jackpot with Kristjan from Aurora Hunters. He was full of genuinely interesting information but also is just a really interesting and engaging guy (with some killer Spotify playlists) - even down to recommending his favourite ice cream. Thank you, Kristjan for everything! Also a shout for Halli, our Ice Cave guide - a philosopher, a comedian and (apparently) very nearly Mr Iceland. We were happily impressed with the standard of hotels (Grand Reykjavík, Fosshotel Reykjavík, Hofn Hotel and Langaholt), and are huge fans of Icelandic cuisine. Breakfast at Hofn Hotel and the catch of the day at Langaholt were standouts, the latter rivalling Michelin standards. A very happy tour for us, just enough to feel we did as much as we could in 6 days of touring, just enough so we were not too tired. Thank you, Guide to Iceland!

Review of 2 in 1 Bundle Discount Tours | All National Parks & Ice Caving

This was an excellent tour! My travel partner and I did this tour in January, and as this is a combo tour, our experience was split into two parts: first, the 3-day South Coast tour (which included glacier hiking and ice caving), and second, the 2-day Snaefellsnes peninsula tour. Both were standout for their own reasons. Overall, I enjoyed the comfort of the minibuses - our guides were excellent drivers - and appreciated the pacing that both tour guides offered on each tour. On our first tour, our guide, Odin, was very knowledgeable, practical, and improvised well around the limitations of the short 4 hours of daylight we had in the winter season. I appreciated his approach - many times we would stop at different sites, and he would allot the appropriate amount of time for us to explore each place, leaving enough time to absorb the beauty of the terrain and take lots of photos! While he did not actually get out of the bus to guide us around, I appreciated these windows of opportunity to enjoy the scenery alone and not plastered to the group. Our glacier hike and ice caving experiences were also phenomenal, as our guides were amazing and super interactive. For our second part of the experience, we were picked up by a different guide, Ingo (Ingol?) to explore the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Unfortunately, on our first day, the weather was very rough - rainy and high winds - but did this not stop Ingo from being an amazing guide! He had excellent improvisation, and was highly charismatic and eager to show us the beauty of the Peninsula even in the harsh conditions - his energy and passion for Iceland made it so easy for us to trust him and follow his lead. He would get out of the bus and personally guide us through the terrain to find hidden treasures that I certainly would not have known to look for without him. Our hotel accomodations were perfect, the rooms were very clean and beds extremely comfortable, and the food at ALL of the hotels was excellent. Would highly recommend this tour and book again with Guide to Iceland in a heartbeat!
