    From
    £1,100
    including domestic flights only
    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

    West Greenland photography tour
    From
    £3,250
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? It was all memorable but if I had to pick one thing it would be the boat ride to the Icebergs. I'm not too keen on boats but I was persuaded to go and was stunned by the beauty and majesty of the area. Tips? Do it, you won't regret going to such a beautiful place. Local benefits? I think the group as a whole was environmentally aware of the impacts of man in such a delicate ecosystem. Also it benefited local people, particularly in Oqaatsut where local people...

    Midnight sun photography holiday in Iceland
    From
    £3,550
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? Visiting the glacial lagoons and ice beach in South Iceland. The Lake at Myvatn - utterly serene and beautiful Tips? Be prepared for all weather conditions; be ready for some long journeys between some stopovers. Also toilets can be hard to find once off the beaten track. Local benefits? We stayed mainly in small, local guest houses /accommodations with local produce. It was an education it itself to see how carefully Iceland was trying to protect and look... (more)Lynne Wilson

    From
    £3,400
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? This trip took me to places in Iceland that I have wanted to visit for the past few years. Every day was filled with fantastic photographic opportunities and memorable activities that expanded my appreciation of the complexities of the local culture, as well giving ample time to photographing the flora, fauna and landscapes of this remarkable part of the world. Tips? Don't think that this is only a trip for experienced photographers. It is structured to support individual... (more)Bronwyn Stafford

    The title of the holiday tells it all. Each day we visited different places of the unique beauty away from the crowds. (more)Teresa Trippenbach

    Northern lights and whale watching cruise in Iceland
    From
    £1,760
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? The thrill of such a variety of remarkable landscapes. It was like being on another planet and truly wonderful. Tips? Make sure you know exactly what is paid for. e.g. just because the trips are on the itinerary don't assume they are included. Also I was told of various ways I could get from the airport to the ship and I booked and paid for a return bus but at the last minute was told Pro-Ocean had arranged for pick-up at the airport. A little lack of organisation.... (more)Jeanette Morrison

    The best part was the Glacier walk. Amazing. (more)Valerie Deeth
    3 of us were upgraded to a luxury chalet with a hot tub for free due to a cancellation that evening - and we sat in a hot tub in the middle of dark farmland and watched the northern lights! (more)Zara Wines
    Iceland walking holiday, Laugavegur
    From
    £1,500
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? The magnificent scenery, food and people of Iceland. Tips? The food experience was excellent [lamb and fish..we stayed away from whale and puffin..!] even in the smallest of guesthouses and towns..but dining out was expensive [by Australian standards]. Next trip we will try to prepare our own dinner perhaps every second night. Be careful on the roads...generally no road shoulders and lots of one way [often blind] bridges..just be aware. Local benefits? Hopefully... (more)Steven Huntingford
    Iceland walking holiday, East fjords
    From
    £1,600
    including domestic flights only
    Memorable parts? Perhaps hiking and bathing in Natural Hot springs and seeing the waterfalls especially hiking to several where there was almost no one. The guided Glacier hike and seeing Puffins. Tips? I would recommend talking with a person from your area who may have done a similar trip and getting Guidebook to compare to what you asked the operator to set up. The operator listened well to our desires of what to see and what to hike. Iceland is a relatively expensive country... (more)Erik Staub

    Memorable parts? Liaising and socialising with people of my own age Tips? Bring a warm sleeping bag regardless of the time of year Local benefits?

An excellent and insightful holiday with great people and a very professional yet approachful guide (more)Lazar Radibratovic

    Horse riding holiday in Iceland
    From
    £1,375
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? Excellent throughout. We rode (mainly tolting and walking, but some cantering once the guide was certain of our riding ability) across varied terrain, which was wonderful, and each tried out several different ponies, selecting our favourite for riding on the last day. Our final day's riding ended with a magnificent gallop along a deserted beach, after crossing estuarine waters. Tips? Be honest about your riding ability. Don't pretend to be more experienced than...

    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

    We saw places we never would have thought of on our own and everywhere we stayed was either a great hotel or in a beautiful setting or, most often, both. (more)Jane Colman
    The most memorable was snorkelling in Silfra and exploring Reynisfjara Beach. We got really lucky and had 100% sunshine and 0 precipitation the entire 45 days we were there. (more)Charles Ross
    It didn't get off to a great start but overall it would have to have been one of the best holidays my wife and I spent together. It was a trip of a lifetime and we will cherish the memories forever. (more)Scot Skellham
    Iceland adventure holiday in Autumn
    From
    £2,650
    including domestic flights only
    Memorable parts? The quiet and dramatic landscape all around us. Tips? Unlike other guided treks I have been on, the leader is way out ahead of the paying walkers and not particularly accessible if immediate assistance is needed (like navigating a particularly treacherous part of the trail), or if one has questions about the what we are seeing. One needs to be aware of this and prepared. Our leader was quite knowledgeable and was available to answer questions and point things our,... (more)Daniel Katsin
