    This was a fantastic tour. You spend a lot of time on the road but you get to see so much in just one day. The landscapes are awe-inspiring as are the tales that accompany them. Peter, the guide, told us histories, myths, and legends along the way. Mount Kirkjufell is breathtaking. My best photos of the trip came from this place.

    The tour is very interesting. You will see picturesque landscapes, beautiful waterfalls, landmark viking settlments... The guide was incredibly informed and interactive. We only found odd the half hour/45 minutes lunch break at a local restourant ... a time that according to us could be spent elswhere in nature. We strongly recommend the tour.

    First of all, i am not a big fan of guided tours, but the enthusiasm and generosity of Sigurđ was so refreshing and so amusing! He gave us a lot of extra stops, which could gave us a nice view how icelanders live. I love his way of storytelling and the whole idea. He is very entertaining and a charming person who you easily can talk and ask.
