This trip was amazing ! We got to see so much beautiful scenery. The glacier lagoon was stunning and we were lucky enough to see lots of seals. A lot of travelling but definitely worth it ! Pearl was the perfect guide she was very friendly and knowledgable and made the trip interesting and very enjoyable. Peter was also amazing, driving and allowing us extra time when we were lucky enough to see the northern lights. They made a great team and made the trip.

The tour guide, Perla, was absolutely amazing! She was so helpful and enthusiastic about Iceland. Overall, the trip was fabulous! The places that we stopped at were breathtakingly beautiful and most definitely a bucket list experience! Both Perla and the driver, Peter, went above and beyond for the travellers on this trip and constantly put them first supporting any needs. Amazing trip, totally recommend.

I'm super excited, the tour was 1000% worth it. Of course you are on the bus a lot, but you also get enough time to look at everything in peace or to eat something in between. I can really recommend the 3-day tour to everyone! Everything was organized perfectly and everyone was very friendly and courteous.

A truly unforgettable experience! Rob was an amazing guide - informative, patient, and accommodating. He brought us to all the best spots on the glacier. The journey into the ice cave, and through an ice tunnel were spectacular! Once in a lifetime. I definitely recommend this tour!

The walk was spectacular. Our guide knew a lot about glaciers and made sure everyone felt safe and had any questions answered. I would do it again in a heartbeat!
