Wellbeing holiday in North Iceland
Memorable parts? We had a fantastic whale watching trip from Husavik. Saw several grey whales close to our boat. One was very active and actually breached for us! Visit to steaming geothermal area bubbling pools of water and mud and smelling strongly of rotten eggs! Tips? Needed information about transport between international and domestic airports in Reyjavik. Had to use taxi between bus terminal and domestic airport which we were not told about. More information about our... (more)Jeanne Weston

Northern Lights, glaciers and ice photography holiday Iceland
It was fantastic. The tour guides were very responsive to local conditions and flexible to the interests of the group. They were very well organized and knew which sites would be good at different times of day for photography. The group had people at different levels of photography experience, but the common interest brought people together. (more)Christopher Gawronski
Excellent. Inspiring. Exhausting. I would do it all again tomorrow. (more)Tania Skye

Got to see a pod of eight orca whales including a baby on a whale watching cruise from grundurfordur. (more)Craig Hamilton
We had a 24hr period where everything just went right. Killer Whales, dolphins and a surprise display of a fantastic Aurora...It was a fantastic holiday. (more)Jenny Lacey
The most memorable parts were seeing the Orca swim under the bridge we were standing on and the grade 5 Aurora Borealis - painting the sky in technicolour! (more)Keith Muir

From €2000 including domestic flights only
Iceland Northern Lights & Astronomy holiday, South Coast
Memorable parts? Our visit to the Blue Lagoon lake for me was probably the best day of the trip. I very much appreciated being dropped off by our guide away from the main tourist spot, and we walked, as a group, along the edge of the frozen lake. It was so peaceful and quiet, and we were able to take lots of photographs, and see seals and eider ducks, before we reached the end of the lake, where there were hoards of visitors. I also enjoyed our daily picnic lunches, in spite of trying... (more)Lesley McManus

Highlights of Iceland self drive holiday

It was a wonderful trip, a great opportunity to contact with nature. (more)Inés Rodriguez
Amazing, terrific experience which was enhanced by wonderful co-ordination and planning by the tour company (more)Helen Ross
From €1100 - €2500 including domestic flights only
Iceland adventure holiday, Lake Myvatn in Spring
Memorable parts? The guide, Ingimundur, had a wonderful passion for his country and delighted in showing us parts of this astonishing landscape which I doubt would be discovered by most independent travellers. Tips? Each season in Iceland brings a different set of wonders. A one-off holiday, such as this one (which was run, unusually, at the end of winter) gives an opportunity to see an astonishing country at a time when it is more-or-less free of tourists. coping with the spectacularly...

Iceland activity holidays
Memorable parts? Hot Spring hunt and heritage tour plus horse riding The glacier walk, the visits to the waterfalls and Vik Bay. Tips? If you have children be aware that many of the starts are at 8 or 8.30 in the am. Particularly because we had a very early flight from Bristol, our teenage children found the early starts a bit much over the week Local benefits? I feel that they benefited local cafes and provided employment. Overall I think Iceland is struggling to cope with... (more)Vicki Harris

Iceland adventure holiday, self drive
Memorable parts? We visited Iceland for the 2016 summer half-term week with all our family. There were eight of us, from three generations. So the most memorable part of this trip was all of us being together in such an inspiring outdoor environment. In particular our grandchildren loved it. Each of us had favorites within this holiday. Most popular was visiting the ice cave near Myvatn, closely followed by dramatic whale-watching (at least 14 whales) from Husavik, and the Detifoss waterfall... (more)John Stork
From €800 - €2500 including domestic flights only
Iceland short break, summer in Reykjavik
Memorable parts? We had a lovely few days seeing the immense and beautiful landscape in Iceland. A highlight was the horse riding and then the Golden Circle tour afterwards. The weather even behaved for us! Tips? The Downtown Hostel where we stayed was excellently situated - I would definitely advise going for a small hostel / guest house in the centre. Everything was walking distance. Some of the large hotels are a bit further out and in less lovely surroundings (e.g. Hilton). However,... (more)Clare Johnson

Trekking holiday in Iceland
Memorable parts? All the scenery was wonderful. The whole holiday felt like we were on another planet! Tips? Go for it! Local benefits? I was pleased to go with a local company employing local people. There was a good culture on the trek of limiting environmental impact Overall rating? First class (more)Sarah Harris

Wildlife cruises to Spitsbergen, Greenland and Iceland
Memorable parts? The wildlife, the scenery, the ice, basically all of it Tips? Spend as much time on deck, you never know when you may see something, really take in every moment we are privelidged to be able to travel and see such wonders. Local benefits? I am sure any form of tourism,brings money into the local economy, and as travellers we see the impacts and changes on our planet ,If we trully open our eyes and take it on board, then in any way we can and however small...

Northern lights & winter break in Reykjavik, Iceland
We appreciated the efforts of the holiday provider to build flexibility into the itinerary to meet our requirements and self drive was a fantastic option, giving us the freedom to flex the suggested route and stop as we chose. (more)Helena Posnett
Excellent. When can we go again? (more)Julia Fieldsend
From €700 - €1500 excluding flights
Iceland holiday, Summer Solstice
Memorable parts? Scenic beauty and eco-systems are two sides of the same coin. The clean air, the lakes, the falls, the lava fields, the glaciers. How does such stark and panoramic landscape co-exist with spectacular sights in Northern Iceland? Tips? For the above 50s age group, a fair bit of walking on uneven tracks, but worth it! If you're doing the Highlands (as this trip was titled)be prepared that late summer onset can mean that the snow on the slopes might mean that the roads... (more)Kumar Iyengar
From €2750 excluding flights
Iceland Northern Lights holiday
Memorable parts? Travelling in the completely unspoiled wilderness with a really knowledgeable guide - and good company. Tips? Enjoy the real differences in the culture and make sure you have a warm jacket! Don't expect the Northern Lights - they're a bonus. If you're going to the Blue Lagoon make sure you can get at your swimming things easily. Sadly ours were in the luggage and we got there straight off the plane! A rather wasted experience for us. Make full use of Happy Hour -... (more)Lorraine Wolsey
From £1475 - £1495 excluding flights
Iceland short break Northern Lights tour
It was terrific. You have one extraordinary leader in Kristian. He bought out the best in the group and was informative as well as engaging. (more)Carmel Brown
The most memorable part was walking on the glacier then watching the parts of the glacier which had broken off float into the sea past the mesmerising lagoon; Gullfoss - completely spectacular waterfall...An absolutely wonderful holiday. (more)Amanda Porter
Not the adventure I had hoped for. Very little activity, mostly sitting on the bus. (more)Elizabeth Boait
From £1479 - £1499 including UK flights
