5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

We highly recommend Artic Adventures. The only thing we would have changed is going on the lava cave tour before the golden circle. We opted out of the golden circle which we didnt want to but the lava cave portion left us a bit sweaty and since we would be outside for the golden circle we didnt want to go without a change of clothes. Excellent tour guides and bus drivers.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2017

This was a great way to sample a bit of Iceland while staying in Reykjavik. The sights were beautiful and we had friendly, knowledgable, and entertaining guides on each day of the trip. The main tour company was Arctic Adventures and the Adventure part of the name is appropriate. Be prepared to crawl through caves and try climbing up a short glacier wall. If you are already an experienced climber, caver, whatever, and are seeking an extended expedition this particular package might be too tame for you. But for those in reasonable shape with limited time and a desire to try out several different outdoor experiences in Iceland this was perfect. A special thanks to our glacier guide, Bori, who very patiently made sure that I was safe on the ice after a fall in the lava cave messed up my knee the day before!

I give this 3-day package 5 stars!! Logistics was expertly planned so pick-ups, gear issue, etc. were all very smooth. There was no unnecessary down time while guides sorted out what they were supposed to be doing. All guides were professional, very informative and experienced.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

This 3 day tour was offered by Arctic Adventure. My guides were so knowledgeable, considerate and went above what the description stated. I could have been more satisfied with this experience.

Arctic Adventures, the tour company, was very accommodating and knowledgeable. My only suggestion is to make sure you read all the fine print with Viator.

4 star rating: Recommended January 2018

This was a great tour for a short break as it covers lots of things! Remember in December / January you are chasing the daylight so be prepared to not spend too long at waterfalls for example. You have time for a quick look and for photos and that's it!
Tour guides through Arctic Adventures were all good - not great communication on pick up times from hotel so make sure you double check with them direct.
Be prepared in terms of your kit if doing this trip in the winter - ski jackets and trousers are a must for the first two days, plus all of the usual cold weather gear - I highly recommend taking walking boots if you have them as they are better for the caves - but for the glacier walk it is recommended and better if you hire their boots - not expensive - and they don't flex so you can ice climb in them. If you don't want to try the ice climbing then normal walking boots are fine.
Trip to the Blue Lagoon was great - you are not limited on time as you can get the transfer bus back whenever you want. Buy a waterproof case for your phone if you want to take pictures!


3 star rating: Worth doing March 2016

Very friendly and competent staff, but in my opinion in generell overpriced even for Iceland, should be at least 20 cheaper. Understanding that hotel pick-up includes some waiting and organization am also thinking that this should be improved as waiting time of nearly one hour is way too much! Attractions as Golden Circle and Blue Lagoon are tourists spots, so not expecting to really experience Iceland's great nature there I was still disappointed. Glacier hiking and ice climbing was awesome and a big recommendation, as you couldn't/ shouldn't do it on your own.


1 star rating: I do not recommend this October 2017

My tour was not booked properly so, i ended up wasting 2days so they can rearrange my tour schedules to fit the remaining days of my vacation. On October 15, Sunday as the scheduled start of my tour, no one arrived to pick us up. then on October 15, Monday, again no one arrived so, I approached Hilton Canopy for help and they did contacted Arctic Adventure, who never had my tours in the system???
i emailed viator October 15, but no answer. the only contact i had was my tour email from viator??? it was disappointing and wasted!
my days were filled with half days tour and wasted Blue Lagoon time because i was given 2 hours only to use the booking!!!
money and time wasted.
