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:
    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).
    Summary:
    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 ma...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.See more

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

    Best parts:
    Our Superjeep tour was amazing! Even thought we didn't see the Northern Lights, we had a great time. The Superjeep company were a great group to go out with. They were very informative and helpful.
    Worst parts:
    I think the only thing we didn't like was the size of our bathroom in our hotel room. Wish we had more space.
    Summary:
    We really enjoyed Reykjavik and all of the wonderful people we met. It was a great experience. The Golden Circle tour was both informative and amazing. Our Superjeep tour was a blast.

Our Superjeep tour was a blast. Wish the weather would have cooperated so we could have went out more than the one time. Everything was amazing. Thank you Evaneos for arranging and such an amazing time.See more

Despite the weather which can be tricky in the winter time in Iceland you really enjoyed your stay and that's awesome. The super jeep tour must have been very cool, but sorry to hear you didn't have a chance to see the Northern Lights. Perhaps next time? Hopefully you decide on coming to Iceland again :) Your local agent, NikaSee more
