Seljalansfoss in Iceland
 I never tire of hearing people's description of seeing the Northern Lights for the first time, or the glacier lagoon of Jökulsárlón. The beautiful thing about Iceland is that around every bend you find your next great postcard picture.

The Vestman Island
Hraunfossar in Iceland
Skaftafell in Iceland
Winter storm in Iceland
The Agents Top Picks
  • The Vestman Island is home to one of the worlds largest puffin colonies, and an active volcano that last erupted in 1973.
  • At the waterfalls of Hraunfossar in Borgarfjordur, a river runs several miles underground that comes bursting out from the edge of a lava field!
  • The area around Skaftafell in Vatnajökull National Park. In the summer you have the purple of the lupin plant with a backdrop of glaciers.
  • I love a good winter storm, as long as everybody is safe. The nature and weather play a big part of life in Iceland.

All guest houses were good enough, Only one was on the low side: The Stundafriöur cottage, it was really small, we had to make the beds for the kids and the cartains were minimal so we had a lot of light! The BEST guest house was Sÿslo in Stykkishólmur both room and breakfast were GREAT!See more

Hiking in Þórsmörk, horseback riding in Snæfellsnes and Rauðisandur beach in West fjords are my personal favourites too! I'm happy you had a good weather and could fully enjoy your Icelandic trip. It is also good to get feedback on accommodation so we know which guesthouses are worth cooperating with and which ones we should avoid in the future - thanks for that! I hope you will return to Iceland one day and use again our local agency to prepare your trip :) Your agent from Iceland - NikaSee more

    Best parts:
    How well planned Nika made the trip. While we enjoyed so much, we probably liked the glacier hike the best. We had to change dates and Nika took care of it right away and while in Iceland, Nika again helped us change itinerary and did an amazing job
    Worst parts:
    A lot of driving but that was what I asked for. Didn’t love Islandair hotel in Reykjavik
    Summary:
    We saw many great sites, got to hike and as mentioned before , loved the heavier hike. We really enjoyed Blue Lagoon, secret lagoon, and best we liked Krauma
