A Must Do Trip When In Iceland!
Andrew_M, Feb 2023
This trip was fantastic. Our guide was very knowledgeable and kind. He gave us an excellent tour of this incredible country. Everything was exactly as described if not better. I was impressed at how meticulously planned the whole thing was. Additionally, they were constantly watching the weather so that they could adjust our itinerary around storms and make sure we could still see everything. While we did have a huge storm roll in, our guide still made sure we saw everything listed, and more importantly, he made sure we were safe on our trips through bad weather. I would not have wanted to drive in that myself (blinding snow, heavy rain, and high winds), but he was unfazed. Additionally, the accommodations were perfectly fine. The first night we stayed in Selfoss in a great hotel (Hotel Selfoss) that had a nice view of a river and mountains. It would have been excellent for northern lights viewing given that it was dark, the rooms faced the river, and we had a balcony to watch from, but the lights unfortunately weren't out. The second hotel we stated in was in Höfn (Hótel Höfn). It was not as nice as the first one but it was certainly okay and up to the standards they list in their description. No spectacular views like the first one, but you felt like you were in a quiet little place and you could walk outside to see the lights if they were out (minimal light pollution here). If you google the hotel you will probably see (what I would consider) very nice rooms. the rooms we were placed in were a bit more spartan than those but again, not a problem at all. Both hotels were in line with what is described on their Viator listing. Also, they may use different hotels every time. This is just what I got. All in all, I would HIGHLY recommend this trip. It is the trip of a lifetime. My dad (65y.o.) and I (30 y.o.) both had such an incredible time with this group. Very professional, very accommodating, and very nice. We got to walk through ice tunnels underneath glaciers, walk across glaciers, see beautiful waterfalls & geysers, take pictures on the black sand beach, and marvel at the northern lights (fyi - download the "hello aurora" app for help with tracking them on your trip). This trip does it all.

The glacier caves and hike, the sunrise on the bridge, the unsuspected seals, the constant mountain and sea combination and countless waterfalls all paired with the voice of our amazing guide explaining the intricate beauty of the Land of Fire and Ice! A fully packed 3 days and would do it all again in a heart beat.
Trip of a lifetime

This tour was everything we wanted and more. Our tour guide, Petur, had amazing stories about each location we saw and he went the extra mile to make sure the group had the trip we wanted, such as asking us if we wanted to spend more time in a particular location. Every stop was a photographer’s dream. I was unsure about how the glacier hike would go and I was surprised in a very good way. The description lists the hike as “easy,” but I would rate it as moderate. It’s not a flat, snowshoe kind of outing. They give you ice spikes, a harness, helmet and ice axe for a reason. You’re walking and climbing on ice. No previous experience necessary, but you should be in moderate shape and be able to jump over small crevices if needed. What I love about this tour overall is that you can have an amazing time as is without having to pay for a ton of extra upgrades just to see other sights, which is the case with some tours in Europe. I highly recommend this tour!

I loved the ice caves and glacier hiking. I would return in a heartbeat because Iceland is one of the most beautiful places I’ve been to
Worth it!

We had an amazing 3 day tour with Gon Thor as guide.Gon was very warm and helpful throughout the trip. We went from seeing golden circle to ice cave to glacier hiking and it was all so worth it. Definitely a good recommendation if you want to experience iceland in 3 days.
Fantastic tour

This was a fantastic tour with a wonderful guide, Rocky. The weather was good to us on day 1 and 2 so we got to see just about all of the highlights on our itinerary. Rocky also went above and beyond to chase the northern lights and we saw it on the second night. He also got us back to Reykjavík through a snowstorm! The other tour guides for the smaller activities were also very professional. Thanks Troll Expeditions for taking us around to see your breathtaking country!
Iceland is for Adventure!
Robert_M, Jan 2020
We had a great time on our Iceland adventure, even if the weather didn't totally cooperate. Dugar, our guide, was highly knowledgeable, friendly and upbeat. As we set off for the glacier hike in the rain, Dugar reminded us "Iceland is for Adventure!" Despite the weather we still got to do everything on the itinerary and had an awesome time doing it. The glacier hike, blue ice cave, and 'diamond' beach were the favorites for our family, but really we loved every stop on the tour. On the last night the weather cleared just in time for us to even get to see a slight glow of the Northern Lights.
Memorável 😃🥶👍
