Ian picked us up at 7:30 am and dropped us at our hotel at 11:30 p.m. He willingly gave the group as much time as we agreed that we wanted at the big stops and squeezed in places that were not on the itinerary. It was an unbelievable trip and we learned so much about the formation of the terrain as we rode along. Nothing else we saw in four days compared to the Glacier Lagoon. Such a very different trip from the Golden Circle. Do both if you have time...just plan an easy day after this trip. Hopefully you'll get to travel with Ian!
Our tour guide Gummi, was absolutely the best tour guide I have ever toured with.
The sights were awesome and the information he provided along the way taught me more about Iceland in 14 hours than I knew from reading or from a previous trip 7 years ago.
This is a long day but so worthwhile and scenic. Lots of stops along the way at waterfalls, canyons and interesting black sand beaches. The zodiac at the glacier lagoon takes you close to the glacier and then around the icebergs in the lagoon, which also has lots of seals! And then a stop at Diamond Beach across the way. Just beautiful! The bus has free Wifi and USB outlets for charging - bring a cord. It makes frequent bathroom and lunch stops. Time flies.
Highlight of our trip to Iceland. Possibly highlight of all my travels. Just beautiful and amazing to ride one of the zodiac boats around the lagoon, touch iceberg pieces and see icebergs in the black volcanic beaches. Toooo Long a day (16 hrs) but totally worth it and would do again
The entire trip was wonderful. It was a relatively small group, which we like. Our guide Ronald was the best and knew some additional places to take us to while on the way to the scheduled ones. Perfece timing for everything including lunch and dinner. On the way back he noticed the Northern Lights and gave us the opportunity to take it all in at one stop and then at another where there was a waterfall that was lit at night. Truly spectacular
Absolutely amazing, in one day we saw more than I could have hoped for. Excellent driver, knowledgeable and eager to answer all of our questions. Small group, had plenty of time everywhere. I highly recommend this tour!
This was a wonderful overview of the south coast area of Iceland. I wondered how they'd fit all that in in a day my plotting of driving it added up to 2 days no matter how I played with the stops. Turns out, it was NOT just a 14 hr trip! We were away from our hotel for 17 hrs so prepare yourself to be out there almost as long as there is daylight and there's a lot of daylight here this time of year. That being said, we saw so many wonderful things. Definitely value for the money! Unless you don't do the boat trip like my friend who gets seasick. She stayed onshore and was bored for 1 1/2 hrs :
