Spend time taking views of the dramatic highland landscape before heading to the well-known Sólheimajökull Glacier.

Trip was canceled twice, we went on a longer trip and saw less than this trip. Had great weather that day
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Dear Janet, Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback. We are very sorry that we had to cancel your trip. Unfortunately sometimes the weather just does not allow us to operate a tour safely. In cases like that we offer our guests to join other tours instead, like you who got a free upgrade to a more expensive and longer tour. I´m sorry that you did not enjoy that tour as much and we understand of course that the original tour is the one you were most interested in. Feel free to contact us via email and we can see that we can also additionally take you on your original tour! Have a wonderful day and we hope you are enjoying your time in Iceland!

We loved this tour! I would absolutely do the small group tour! Our tour guide whose nickname is Motherduck was wonderful! He was kind and patient and funny and informative! He took us to a small farm where we sat and had coffee and treats, to two beautiful waterfalls and gorgeous glaciers! The bus was comfortable and clean and everything was perfect.

A fantastic journey. The black sand beaches and waterfalls a must see. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the terrain and surrounding volcanic areas and we also learned a lot about the Icelandic volcanoes and stopped on the way back to Reykjavik at the new volcano museum.. The small group is the way to go.
