Please Review Your Overall Experience And What Your Highlights Were

Little could be done to improve this tour, giving a real taste of what Iceland has to offer. It was brilliant. We were the lucky ones and completed the full itinerary. Highlights: snow cat up the mountain; brewery visit; Northern Lights; Glacier Lagoon; and an adventure every day. Plus the people. Improvements: Include the buffet at the Hofn hotel, as it's the only option; Replacement hotel in Reykjavik, Hotel Cabin, was poor compared to Reykjavik Lights.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

I was truly captivated by the newly formed icebergs at Jokulstarlon Glacial Lagoon. To see the process of stunningly aqua blue icebergs turning into large crystal-like ice cubes was a magical sight to behold; and then these being taken out to sea to be dumped back onto a beach of pure black vulcanic 'sand' was as close to a natural ice sculpture park you could ever imagine! What a phenominal, natural phenomenon treat, and one I won't EVER forget.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

The people, landscape and the weather combined with the reactive approach that turned snow storms and blizzards into a fantastic adventure. 16 strangers became friends almost immediately, all in unison with the unplanned forever changing itinerary. The formidable weather provided the most amazing opportunity to properly chat with local people, get an insight into true Icelandic everyday living, experiencing the pride, love and passion they have for their country and culture. Sharing in the beauty of all the natural elements; Vik in particular where by day the contrast of the black sand beach against the powder white snow and by night where the Northern Lights enthralled us.

Fantabulous

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

There were so many truly wonderful moments and I cannot fault the holiday in anyway. The many spectacular frozen waterfalls and rivers, the snow covered scenery, drinking beer at sunset in the thermal pools near Lake Myvatn whilst having the place to ourselves, snow catting up a mountain in a blizzard, visiting the Glacial lagoon.We were lucky with the weather and managed to fit in many things that were not on the itinerary. I would recommend this holiday to everyone.

Absolutely wonderful

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

The weather. This was a very different holiday experience. Yes, we saw all the sights and swam in warm lagoons and we had plenty of snow to give lots of beauty and atmosphere but it was the high winds that provided most excitement. Hurricane force winds meant we had difficulty standing up and we had to shelter in an isolated cafe for two hours because it was too dangerous for the bus to continue.
