- This was a great trip, with excellent sights. The tour was well organised and our guide was incredibly enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We sadly did not get to see the Northern Lights, however, the talk and star gazing experience by Andy, the Expert Astronomer were fantastic.
The accommodation surpassed expectations, and we chose to eat in the second hotel instead of stay in Reykjavik. We saw that they had a fabulous traditional Icelandic home-cooked buffet with 3 courses, offered at a very reasonable price compared to food in the towns, and the chef came out to introduce each dish. This was the best meal we had throughout our trip, and we wanted to recommend it in the feedback as it was not publicised at all by our guide, and the rest of the group had burgers in town. Apart from this meal, the food throughout the trip was the only disappointing part, as pizza/burgers and sandwiches were the main options.
Other advice - everything is incredibly expensive, and bring warm clothes! We wore our ski gear the whole time, and I was very grateful for it!
