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 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.

    Best parts:
    The whole trip was amazing. I had provided 6 or 7 key sites we wanted to visit and background on our educational focus of the trip and Evaneos made an incredible itinerary for us. We had a large group (26 people!) and it took a full year of planning but our agent was with us every step of the way to make sure all our needs and desires were taken care of.
    Worst parts:
    Leaving Iceland! But many of the group plan to return and after seeing our photos and hearing about the trip, many others want to come next year.
    Summary:
    Iceland is an amazing place and our tour guide, Johann, provided insight and personal care to make visits to National Parks, historic sites, Solheimer Ecovillage and other points of interest education...Iceland is an amazing place and our tour guide, Johann, provided insight and personal care to make visits to National Parks, historic sites, Solheimer Ecovillage and other points of interest educational and fun. Two of our college students even got engaged on the beach in the rain with the crashing waves all around us. Our hotel was great...clean and had everything we needed and the staff of Hotel Cabin was accommodating of every request. People we met everywhere were kind and friendly. I was hesitant to use a tour company and still have a 'real' Icelandic experience but Evaneos provided a perfect mix for such a large group.See more

    Best parts:
    • Glymur hike was voted the best by the 3 of us. Sorry we learned about the geo thermal spring nearby after we had left the area. • History and geology of the Tectonic plate region. • Falls that you can walk behind. • Secret Lagoon • L***** hotel was voted best hotel with a very pleasant manager and great breakfast. • Lava museum- good on rainy day • Folk museum- good when tired from hiking • Settlement Museum in Reykjavik • The overall beauty of ever changing lava rocks- from moss covered fields to black lava rock sculptures - to the coastal lava rock
    Worst parts:
    •Weather- rain almost every day •Some hotels that were noisy- b&b near airport was particularly loud- although beds were comfy we couldn't sleep because of noise. We were sorry you had not booked us back in the L*** for our last night as there was really no reason for us to be near the airport as we were not scheduled to leave until 4:45 and spent the day in Reykjavik •Expense of food • day #7 - kind of boring- lots of driving - not very interesting sights noted to stop at -
    Summary:
    • Grateful to have everything arranged for us from rental car which was easy to pick up and drop off- to having accommodations all set for each night and highlights and tours chosen and reserved.

Thank you very much for your positive feedback, and I´m very happy to read that you enjoyed the country and landscapes so much, despite the rain :) The hike to Glymur is something special, so I´m very pleased to hear that you enjoyed that so much. L*** is also a favourite of mine, and the owner is absolutely lovely. I´m sorry to read that you felt that the drive on Reykjanes peninsula was not worthwhile, and that you didn´t enjoy the BnB in Keflavik. I have not had this issue or comment on the BnB before, but its something that I will take into consideration next time :) All the best, GunnarSee more
