Horse Riding Tour in Akureyri
"This was a great way to enjoy the vistas of Akureyri. These beautiful, well trained horses took us along the shore and on the vast open air trails. We felt safe and enjoyed meeting the lovely family who operates the tour."..."

Lake Myvatn and Godafoss Waterfall Day Tour from Akureyri
"We (as a group of three) had enough time to travel to all destinations with an adequate amount of time spent at each location, no one was rushed in any way, and we could experience the natural beauty present. The tour guide was very informative about many aspects not only about each stop, but Iceland in general- whether it came to geology or folklore, he always had something interesting or witty to say. My favourite part had to be the mud pots- it looked (and smelled) like you had just stepped on an alien planet, with the blistered landscape inset with roaring steam columns and bubbling acid pools."..."

"Picked up right on time. Thankfully we got really well with fellow travellers as 7 in a jeep was a tight squeeze. Day was spoilt a little by all the flies, perhaps the guide could provide some simple face nets to those who are not prepared for the little pests.Excellent guide never felt rushed and he was very helpful."..."

Lake Myvatn, Dettifoss and Goddafoss Waterfalls Day Tour from Akureyri
"Fantastic experience and well organised trip by a highly reputable company. Our guide, Armaan, made our experience unforgettable. It was the middle of winter, we were the only people on the tour & the road conditions were bad so we couldn’t reach Dettifoss or Selfoss. However, Armaan went out of his way to make up for it and made sure we saw as much as we could. If you want local knowledge, fantastic humour & an awe inspiring experience, then we would highly recommend this trip."..."
