Reviews

This really was hands down the best trip we've ever had - no exaggeration! What a fantastic, beautiful country, and the organization with all your tips was perfect. We loved the Laxa Hotel, as it offered the 24-hour wake up call; they woke us after midnight and we spent an hour and a half outside in absolute awe at the most spectacular display of the northern lights! It was beautiful beyond words. We thoroughly enjoyed all the waterfalls and geysers, the black beaches, the ice lagoon, the herring museum abd shark museums, and even saw  humpback whales. Thank you a million times, we had the most AMAZING and wonderful vacation.
