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:
    We had constant support and contact with Patrizia. She's wonderful. We even got to meet her face to face. The tours with Arctic Adventures were good and we saw a lot of the Island. We loved all the snow and awesome waterfalls. The Ice cave tour and Glacier walk along with capturing the Northern Lights were a highlight for sure. The food was tasty and The Skuggi Hotel was a great location and pleasant stay. The people of Iceland were extremely friendly and happy people.
    Worst parts:
    If there was a worst it would have to be the knowledge of the Arctic Adventures tour guides for complete details of our planned daily schedule. On our 5 day tour the guide was not very elaborate on giving us information about where we were, advising how to dress in regards to our daily adventures (sometimes the schedule changed day to day for whatever reason and was not correct from our written Itinerary) We understood that but there was lack of communication. He also stated we did not have a cave tour! That was upsetting. Thank goodness we did go on a cave tour because that was extremely important. Patrizia again was there for us and she assured me we were all set. The expense of eating was probably the worst aspect but we expected that.
    Summary:
    The snowy Iceland Tourane was gorgeous with the frozen waterfalls just beautiful. The people of Iceland were very friendly while most of the accommodations were comfortable. Patrizia with Evaneos was ...The snowy Iceland Tourane was gorgeous with the frozen waterfalls just beautiful. The people of Iceland were very friendly while most of the accommodations were comfortable. Patrizia with Evaneos was the best travel agent to have. She was thorough and very caring, she even answered questions while we were on tour! Thank you so much for making our adventure in Iceland wonderful from beginning to end.See more

    Best parts:
    Blue lagoon was very special so was the dog sledding, the Glacier hike and local geothermal pool
    Worst parts:
    Northern Lights seem to be a myth the Global warming is slowly turning Icebergs into tiny pieces of ice ( we have bigger icebergs in Hudson river) it was very disappointing to see the tiny ' Icebergs' and the waterfalls I should have probably chosen more extreme activities in order to have more memorable trip.

I am really happy to read that you enjoyed the activities I booked for you; I am sure that if we had had more than 13 days to plan the trip, I would have had more time to put together the exciting trip you were looking for. Unfortunately it snowed and rained a lot during your stay in Iceland , which is the reason why you were not able to see the northern lights; even if the solar activity had been very high, the cloudy sky would have prevented you from seeing the aurora. But look at it this way: the bad weather allowed you to do the dog sledding on snow, instead of on dry-land! Your personal travel agent, PatriziaSee more
