The perfect sight-seeing tour in Iceland!

This tour is one of two that I would recommend for everyone that would like to go sight-seeing, especially if they only have 1 day to do so - that is this one and it's South Coast counterpart. You get the whole flora of Icelandic nature with waterfalls, rock formations, glaciers, black sand beaches, mountains, old churches, small villages and much more.

As a private tour you can tailor it a little to your wants and desires making this the perfect sight-seeing tour for you and your group.

A great day in the West

What a fantastic day. Tomasz was a professional from start to finish. Knew when to step in with information and when to stand back and allow us to just enjoy. Our comfort and enjoyment was number one from start to finish. Great itinerary and great value for money. Will definitely use this company again.

Great guided tour to Snaefellsnes

Different than most tours in Iceland, our guide Chris was with the group at the whole time, giving us detailed info around the visited places as well as ensuring we are not missing anything relevant of our tour. Would definitely recommend this tour and Snaefellsnes is a MUST not many people talk about!

Wonderful!! It was so beautiful, so worth spending the money given the roads being icy. Our tour was on 2/6/22 with a gentleman from Poland! I can’t remember his name but he was so nice and offered to take photos for us! We brought our 6-month old baby and he even brought a car seat for us. Would totally recommend him to anyone looking to take a tour. Would love to do the North trip but we’re stuck inside due to the weather!
