In March of 2017 I decided to book a trip to Iceland. I began an on line search. In this search I was lead to this travel agent. He allowed me to explain to him my expectations of the vacation as well as the places I would like to see. He communicated with me on line and phone to plan the perfect vacation. He sent me an amazing itinerary to review and tweak with days, times, places and hotels. His itinerary contained written details and photographs of the places and things we would experience.
Upon our arrival he picked us up at the airport at 4:30 am and took us to our hotel where we reviewed our itinerary and discussed changes we might need to make due to weather. He allowed us a couple of hours sleep and the we began our journey.
This travel agent is an amazing tour guide. I write this review with absolutely no reservation and give him my highest recommendation.
The thing I will remember the most will be the knowledge of our Icelandic native tour guide. We did not only gain the experience of the trip but the history and understanding of the importance and effects on the country. We visited places not on a basic tour experience. The depths of his family in Iceland allowed us to view his family’s participation in the country. Seeing the farm life and how they take care of their live stock. How many produce their own electricity.
We also experienced a super Jeep tour. Amazing how ice and snow does not stop those jeeps. That Jeep tour allowed us to see summer places in the winter when it is covered in snow and ice. Our Jeep driver also cooked us an amazing dinner without any electricity.
Another amazing place was the Glacier lagoon and crystal beach near Jökulsárlón. I know my mouth fell to the ground the evening we visited that beach.
The water fall in Iceland are so beautiful. Gullfoss was almost frozen over. We have so many amazing videos of all these waterfalls
Pingvellir and it’s history of Iceland’s parliament in the 10th and 18th century.
However, the best thing we did was a check off on our bucket list. We saw the Northern Lights. AMAZING!!!!!! We have so awesome pictures. I feel so lucky because we talked to several people at the airport that went out 3 and 4 nights and never saw them
I would give myself more time. I hope one day I get to go back and see Iceland in the summer and visit things on the north side of the island. Unforgettable vacation.
