Our Iceland Safari (without all the animals)!
Our family of 4 had an incredible trip to Iceland and a good deal of it to the incredible planning and guiding of Arctic Advanced. Generally I do all the planning but this time we wanted professionals to handle the details as we had only 7 days and no real idea about visiting the country. Diana was great to work with and handled all of the details. She came up with great suggestions for tours/activities which we then turned into our 4 day Iceland adventure- including transfers from the airport to Reykjavik, our hotels each day and activities. She was easy to work with as she's a real professional and we were in good hands with her planning. The day after we arrived, AO (our guide for 4 days) came to our downtown hotel to pick us up. He had a large "superjeep" and off we went. To say that AO was the nicest/greatest/most friendly guide you could have is an understatement. He took us off the beaten path to incredible places (waterfalls, caves, dormant volcanoes, hikes, swimming places) that not many people probably get too. He was very accommodating to our needs and always made sure we were safe and had the time we wanted for each of the stops. By the time we said goodbye to AO back at our hotel in Reykjavik he was one of our family, or we were one of his. If you are looking for a more intimate Iceland experience beyond the typical tourist groups/excursions you should definitely consider Arctic Adventures. We want to go back for the Northern lights and will use them again!
