We arrived in Akureyri just as the first storm of the year did. There was significant snowfall the night before our Lake Myvatn Tour and we were concerned that the tour would not go. It did, however, even though there were only two of us and we had not paid for a private tour. Our guide was Lily and she... More

Christian was an amazing tour guide. He took us on the Game of Thrones tour but really it was an all encompassing Icelandic extravaganza. The nature, the culture, the food, and the film history was fascinating and thorough. We learned so much, saw familiar scenes and locations and had one of the best lunches of our trip (The Cow Shed... More

My husband and I had an amazing day with Kristian two days ago. There was only the two of us on tour and the tour still ran. Kristian was informative and very easy to talk to. On time pick up. Treated us exceptionally well and restored our faith in Icelandic tourism in general as we had been experiencing a very... More

This was the one tour company that picked us up on time in Iceland. Yay! Lilija's stories about her life in Iceland were very interesting and really helped us understand Iceland's culture more--the Christmas cat, how they live by the weather etc. We were given plenty of opportunity to stop for bathrooms but wish we had a bit more time...

Booked tour with Jon and was able to customize so we could see just the sights that we were interested in. 4 person SuperJeep tour allowed us to have a very personalized experience. Evelyn was our tour guide and she was truly the highlight of the tour for us. She was very responsive to our requests and went out of... More

Guide was nothing more than a taxi driver. He did not point out any sites and left the radio playing. The van was old and too tight for 9 adults. The passenger next to the driver had to relay back to us what the driver was saying when he did talk. We could not hear a word he said.No step... More

My friend Linda and I took The Northern Wonders Tour out of Akureyri with Lilja on September 11. I want to tell you that this was absolutely one of the best tours I have ever taken. Lilja showed us so much. She was a wealth of information and entertained us with her folktales and personal stories. We really enjoyed our... More

Akureyri is such a peaceful place! My friend and I were warmly greeted and although it was a lousy weather day💧💧💧, Mr Stephan, our tour guide were very kind and considerate throughout our whole trip. We enjoyed ourselves as we were given ample time to enjoy the nature in the rain. 😊 Our tour ended with silly me leaving my... More
