This trip exceeded our expectations.
In the initial planning phase, our agent asked good questions and made suggestions based on our feedback. He created an itinerary that addressed our interests and travel preferences (e.g. small hotels, relaxed pace). Our 7-day trip was focused on the Lake Myvatn, Highlands, West Fjords and SnæfellsnesPeninsula areas.
Accommodations were, on the whole, comfortable and well done. Restaurant suggestions ranged from good to excellent. All in-country travel arrangements were well coordinated and comfortable. Our agent was diligent in making dinner reservations, which are necessary for the better restaurants. The vehicle we used for the entire trip, a Ram truck, was clean, spacious and well-suited to off-and on-road driving.
Our travel agent suggested we meet once we arrived in Reykjavik but before our excursion started. It set a nice tone, put us at ease, and answered our questions. He even helped find a provider for a local day trip.
Our travel agent was relaxed yet attentive without being overbearing. He was adaptable to our feedback and to weather conditions. He is well-versed and articulate about the geologic, cultural, current and historical events of his country, and thanks to his own travels, also has a global perspective. All in all, his personality and sense of humor was a great match to our group.
We wanted to do a variety of hikes, and all were well suited to our abilities and interests.
Thank you, Zicasso, for helping us have another stellar trip, and thank you to our agent for an entertaining and educational adventure!
Although the Iceland landscape is stunning, and ever-changing, the unexpected highlight of the trip, proved to be two sheep “retts.” A “rett” (or “gathering”) is the annual herding of sheep from their mountain pastures and sorting into groups by owners. We appreciated the suggestion and the extra work done to locate two of these very local and interesting events.
Our only suggestion would be to have a step to make it easier to get in and out of the big wheeler truck.
