Trip review
Iceland

Andrew

loved their trip to Iceland

Unfortunately we weren't able to see the northern lights, but the Golden circle (including secret lagoon) tour, south coast tour, Geysirs, walk in a glacier, waterfalls, food, and plenty of weather made for a very good holiday. Everybody we met was very friendly and we never felt out of place.

Best parts:
There were many highlights, the ones that really stand out are: - time spent in the secret lagoon. - the food tour - the journey to the ice cave in the all terrain vehicle. Overall I found the Icelandic guides really well informed, able to talk about many aspects of Icelandic culture from the education system, trolls and tectonic plates.
Worst parts:
There was a lot of travelling in minibuses and although the guides were good I would liked to have spent much longer at each attraction. I am a keen photographer and found that we had inadequate time to look not just for the obvious but the unusual (which is the key to turning a good photograph into a great one).

Thank you very much for your kind comments and positive feedback. I´m very happy to see that you enjoyed the sights and activities so much, but it´s a shame about the Northern Lights and weather during your tour. You make a really good point about the pace of the guided tours, and how much time is spent at each place, but there are lots of things to see in a limited time so sometimes it may feel a bit rushed. I hope that this gives you an incentive to visit Iceland again one day to get those unusual and unique photo opportunities :) All the best, GunnarSee more
