Featured trips & expertise

With no shortage of beautiful landscapes, untamed wildlife, and plenty of both nature and nightlife, you'll have no trouble keeping busy and entertained throughout your week-long vacation.
It's no secret that Iceland is drawing more and more visitors every year. If you're joining the ranks, skip the crowds at the most popular Golden Circle attractions and visit the area's lesser-known (but equally stunning) sights, restaurants, and lodges instead.

Iceland 2018, Iceland - Jun 29 - Jul 12, 2018
We booked a 14 day ring road trip. Planned it a year in advance. Everything went smoothly for the most part, but the hiccups made it more of an adventure.I loved the West Fjords the most the scenery was beautiful and it was the only time sun was shining so that helped. When we had any issues or questions during the trip they emailed us in a timely manner. I would not hesitate to use this service again.
Iceland, Iceland - Jun 17 - Jun 23, 2018
It was our first time using kimkim and we have already recommended it to others. Preeti's itinerary provided a great balance - logistics were taken care of and we had reservations for a few excellent activities, but she also left us with suggestions for add-ons and free time to explore on our own. That made it better than an all-inclusive tour while being a lot less stressful than planning it all ourselves. I'm glad we chose to spend the first days in the remote and beautiful eastern fjord... read more
3-generation adventure to see the soul of iceland, Iceland - Jun 25 - Jul 1, 2018
We had a terrific trip. Visiting Landmannalaugar was probably my favorite - the landscape is incredible and hard to even describe. We hiked through an obsidian lava field to a bunch of fumaroles, and then up to the closest peak for an amazing view. The whole family really enjoyed our trip to Heimaey as well (although as the family member with motion sickness isssues, I had a few complaints!). We climbed up Eldfell and found an active hot air vent, which was very exciting, saw the puffins... read more
Iceland 2107, Iceland - Jun 15 - Jun 26, 2018
Overall, the trip was amazing. We really enjoyed the sights, food and experience. The different hostels each had a charm of their own, and only one or so was even remotely a negative., and that was because of the access to the house and kitchen.
My only concern was the hike in Hornstrandir was extremely strenuous. I had appropriate gear, and was in decent enough shape to find it enjoyable, however the description kind of made it sound like an easy stroll. Other people might not be as... read more
Iceland, Iceland - Jun 18 - Jun 23, 2018
All of our guides were very good. The part of the trip we enjoyed the most was the hike in Hornstrandir. The hike was very challenging for us. The elevation gain and distance were just what we expected. We didn't expect the rocks to move around so much as we walked on them. The food at the farm house was great.
The Isafjordur Cultural walk was very informative and enjoyable.
The kayaking was similar to what we experienced in other places. The clothing provided was much better than we... read more
When is the best time of year to visit iceland?, Iceland - Jun 16 - Jun 23, 2018
Preeti & Haldor did a great job with our itinerary! The kayak and hike on the glacier was a big highlight. We had a great guide named Marek. The blue lagoon is a must do and would only add the in water massages (must do in advance as sold out when we arrived). One of the most memorable trips of my life....and I proposed (Preeti gave me some great ideas of where to do it!) while on the Westman Islands and she said YES!. Highly recommend The Kimkim Team!
5-day self-drive tour , Iceland - Jun 10 - Jun 15, 2018
My experience with kimkim looks a lot like the daily temperature chart on my weather app: high at the very outset when a friendly woman in Tennessee took down the personal particulars of our well-traveled four person group (whose ages ranged from 84 to 78), descending to a series of lows when the first agent assigned to our group persistently erred in the details of our trip (how many days and nights, how many days for car rental, etc., and ultimately sent us a final bill before ever... read more
8-day ring road itinerary: explore iceland’s top places along its most famous road, Iceland - Jun 3 - Jun 13, 2018
Iceland is an amazing land of natural beauty. There are impressive waterfalls throughout the country. The weather in early June was for the most part sunny and pleasant with 2 days having rain. On 1 day there were issues of fog and some sights were missed.
The highlight of the trip for both of us was the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Beach, where the glacier meets the ocean and massive icebergs are everywhere in the lagoon. The ice pieces that litter the black sand beach look like expensive works of art made of clear glass.
The people of Iceland are friendly and welcoming.
Iceland exploration, Iceland - May 20 - May 28, 2018
We had a wonderful trip to Iceland. All of the logistics and reservations were great, and seamless throughout the trip. Really appreciated some of the locals favorites recommendations. All of the excursions were great. The daily itinerary was great and well planned. We had one snafu in that an activity was cancelled due to weather, but they were quick to recommend an alternate plan. Would have liked bigger rooms in a few of the places.
Outdoor / adventure trip, Iceland - Jun 8 - Jun 16, 2018
Trip was fantastic - I never could have planned this without Halldor / Wild Westfjords. I have no idea what premium I paid to have this trip planned but it doesn't matter - I could never have put something like this together on my own.
I would definitely refer Halldor - and KimKim - to anyone looking to visit Iceland.
Trip to iceland, Iceland - Jun 5 - Jun 10, 2018
Thanks for a memorable vacation,as your itinerary was perfect; the car correct, the sights wonderful and the accommodations superb. We appreciate your work and suggestions as we relive the week with friends and relatives. Your help--even with the weather! is appreciated. thanks again.
2-week ring road self-drive itinerary: highlights of iceland and the remote westfjords, Iceland - May 25 - Jun 7, 2018
We were very happy with the itinerary for our 14 day "package" self-drive trip to Iceland. Included in our package price was: car hire, accommodation at 2/3 star level (including breakfasts), car ferry to the western fjords, entry to Blue Lagoon and Myvatn Nature Baths, and a boat ride at the Glacier Lagoon. Also included was the peace of mind that we could call on Halldor or Preeti in case anything went wrong. We took up the dining suggestion at Tjoruhusid and were not disappointed! It... read more
2-week ring road self-drive itinerary: highlights of iceland and the remote westfjords, Iceland - May 20 - Jun 1, 2018
My husband and I enjoyed a two week, self driving tour through West and North Iceland. We had an excellent, detailed itinerary with lots of options each day from our specialist Preeti. She focused on what we most wanted to see and do, and we weren't disappointed! Particularly of note were the dining suggestions - it's sometimes challenging to decide on the right place, so we enjoyed all her suggestions without worry. We also enjoyed having vouchers for our accommodations and excursions, it... read more
Iceland babymoontrip , Iceland - May 20 - May 26, 2018
We had a fantastic time exploring Iceland and are very happy with our decision to book a trip through kimkim. We were able to see many extraordinary features of Iceland without being too busy or 'overbooked' feeling. The hotels and rental car accommodations were also fantastic.
A week in iceland: 4 unique road trips filled with highlights & hidden gems, Iceland - May 12 - May 18, 2018
The trip was terrific. We appreciated your help a great deal and everything was fine. My feedback is only about the things that I thought could have been improved. Please know that overall we were very happy.
First of all, the email situation during the planning phase, the long threads and the occasional difficulty wading through. I always appreciated your immediate response but wished the format could have been a bit different.
Second: I know we were on The Ring Road that... read more
Explore iceland in 5 days - seven optimized itineraries to help you make the most of your short trip to iceland , Iceland - Apr 7 - Apr 13, 2018
Hálldor and Preeti did a phenomenal job in picking the hotels, locations and excursion companies. Everything worked out perfectly, the hotels were perfect and the excursions were private with personable, knowledgeable and great guides.
When I go back to Iceland, I intend on using Hálldor and Preeti again. They’re fantastic and I’m very happy with the experience.
Trip to iceland, Iceland - Apr 1 - Apr 7, 2018
This was a dream trip! I was so busy with work and Preeti had everything planned according to where we wanted to go and sights we wanted to see. The self driving tour was great and the hotels were all amazing!!
I will definitely use Kim Kim again - it’s perfect for a busy person who doesn’t have time to plan all the logistics of a trip
K & d birthday spectacular, Iceland - Mar 7 - Mar 16, 2018
We loved our trip! So happy with Kimkim for tailoring our trip to our type of travel. Especially loved our guide Yuli (Mývatn area snowshoe/waterfall excursion). All our bookings were without a hitch and we would recommend kimkim to anyone looking for a self drive tour of Iceland.
Extream honeymoon, Iceland - Mar 3 - Mar 15, 2018
Halldor was a treat to work with. He was very professional and took into consideration all the aspects we discussed with him. We booked a 2 week extensive trip all around Iceland.
I cannot look back onto our trip and think of a single thing we missed out on aside for some roads being inaccessible due to weather. With Halldor's help we experienced the best Iceland had to offer for the money.
We will definitely use Halldor's assistance again.
5 days of iceland’s highlights: east to west from egilsstadir via jokulsarlon to reykjavik, Iceland - Feb 10 - Feb 18, 2018
Other than the weather interrupting our plans, which is not in anyone's control ... All of the activities were great and we really enjoyed them all from Ice Cave to Lava Tunnels to Icelandic Horse back riding and all of the scenic locations. We will return to see some of these sites in the summer at some point for additional breathe taking views. Thanks for all the support from Preeti, even while on vacation, it was a nice touch of excellent service.
Trip to iceland, Iceland - Dec 23 - Dec 30, 2017
Our winter trip to Iceland was amazing. Preeti helped us find great accomodations for our large family and tours we wouldn't have known about without her -- such as the only ice cave tour that allowed us to bring our 8-year-old. She was right to tell us that certain things we wanted to do would require too much driving and was able to suggest alternatives that fit our schedule better. We especially loved the dogsledding. There was one problem with the car rental when we arrived and we had to scramble to make new arrangements, but after the trip KimKim quickly helped us get a refund.
Walshmob christmas 2017, Iceland - Dec 22 - Jan 2, 2018
Overall our 12 days in Iceland were excellent. We did eveything we'd included in our trip specification, although mother nature didn't deliver whales on our Laki cruise or a spectacular northern lights display. However, we did have a magnificent White Christmas experience in Siglufjörður at the Herring House, which was the highlight of the trip for me. Other highlights were:
the dog sledding with Ispiration Iceland as we all got to drive our own sleds instead of just being passengers

Hot springs and northern lights, Iceland - Dec 9 - Dec 13, 2017
Preeti was awesome and took the time to really listen to our often contradictory instructions. The only shortcoming was when we had to drive, it wasnt clear that some of the roads were closed in winter, and we had to improvise and lost an activity deposit. Thats the only reason the entire trip wasnt 5 stars.
Explore iceland in 5 days, Iceland - Dec 1 - Dec 5, 2017
We enjoyed our Golden Circle Tour, we had excellent climate conditions so we got to be very efficient with our time. We got our ice cave tour cancelled and instead did a small cave while hiking the glacier... I was expecting something more amazing but can't complain. The hotels were really great, food was okay.
Our snorkel guide Richard was the best! He also was an expert in Game of Thrones
5 days excursion, Iceland - Nov 25 - Nov 29, 2017
Thank you Halldor for a perfect Iceland trip itinerary. The accommodations, car rental and the lay out of places to visit were easy to follow. We feel that we have seen the South Coast and Reykjavík to its fullest. Thank you for being so flexible and patience during the planning stage.
Iceland last minute trip , Iceland - Nov 9 - Nov 13, 2017
Had an incredible incredible time on our self-driving trip around Iceland and everything was planned so perfectly with just the right amount of time. The trip was perfectly tailored to our needs and the couldn't have been more seamless.
Emanuela was so nice/knowledgeable and happy to answer any and all questions I had.
Iceland tour with my son - game of thrones and other highlights, Iceland - Aug 24 - Aug 31, 2017
"Nearly" perfect. Excellent response time with questions and generally a wonderful experience. A few tiny quibbles include a steep, gravel road not being adequately acknowledged in the itinerary, and a couple of aspects that seemed cut and pasted from other itineraries (to other parts of the country) rather than specific to my itinerary. But really, my complaints, a couple of months later, pale in comparison to how great the trips was for my son and me.
Preeti was so responsive to every question and concern. It was a pleasure working with her!
Off the beaten path, searching for whales and birds, Iceland - Oct 14 - Oct 20, 2017
There were several mishaps in the execution of the trip which weren't Preeti's fault and she was willing and able to help us make the best out of these situations
Ring road, Iceland - Sep 28 - Oct 5, 2017
The overall trip was awesome and exactly what we wanted. We couldn't be happier with what we did and saw and the experience we had with kimkim.com. We would recommend the website to anyone.
Halldor was great to work with. He brought our vision to life and gave us exactly what we wanted. He kept our itinerary packed and got us to the most amazing, rarely seen places in Iceland. Thank you!

Amanda and mom, Iceland - Sep 28 - Oct 4, 2017
We loved Iceland but I think hotels should be researched more. We had a reservation at the GEO hotel it was unexceptionable. It looked like an institution. We left, even though we already paid $180 for it that's how horrible it was. We went to Northern Lights and had to pay $500 for the night which was a killer. The hotel in Fudor would have been much better. The other hotels were from 180$ to 200$ per night no dinners included which was another 120$. Except Aldo in Reykjavik which made the... read more
Iceland adventure, Iceland - Sep 11 - Sep 21, 2017
Preeti - was excellent in her suggestions - having the detailed itenerary everyday with where to go, what to see, suggestions on where to eat and a hotel a the end of the day was invaluable...and imo the best way to see Iceland. The booking process was very smooth - I only wish there was more disclosure on actual cost of the trip abd some of the hotels - i.e so you could perhaps upgrade if desired, etc...
Preeti did an amazing job. We had one issue that was not her fault, but was the fault... read more
30th birtday, Iceland - Sep 28 - Oct 1, 2017
It sometimes felt like the driver was a bit impatient with us. We wanted to linger a bit each morning (not morning people) and the driver seemed annoyed with us. We are of a different culture so taking our time is normal, but there may have been a cultural misunderstanding.
The arrangements Preeti made were wonderful! She was very responsive to us and made every little tweak we requested. My finance's birthday was amazing!
Iceland ring road, Iceland - Aug 30 - Sep 8, 2017
The service from Rico and Halldor was fantastic. They were very easy to work with and communicate with.
Our trip was excellent, actually, however there are some things related to our itinerary that would have helped us manage our time better during the day. For example, including how much time we might need for certain hikes and warning us which roads might be gravel/dirt and might take us extra time to navigate would have been helpful suggestions. We had a dicey drive heading out to... read more
10 day circle trip of iceland, Iceland - Aug 30 - Sep 8, 2017
First, the positive comments. Iceland was a beautiful country to visit and our accommodations were very comfortable.
However, we were quite disappointed in the effort put out by your sub-contractor, Wild Westfjords for a number of reasons. We had expected the same level of service as provided to our friend, Susan Turner.
The itinerary that Susan was given showed a choice of accommodation at each location and specified the cost at each. We were given one choice with the note that if that... read more
10-12 day driving tour of iceland, Iceland - Sep 2 - Sep 13, 2017
The trip was close to perfect. Great choices on destinations and activities. One day was overplanned: it would have been too much to get off the ferry at 17:30 in Brjanslaekur, then drive to the cliffs of Latrabjarg, then drive back to Patreksfjordur. So we skipped Latrabjarg.
It was fun to stumble on the Wild Westfjords office in Isafjordur and meet Halldor, Preeti, and the kids. The next day we got to spend a good bit of time with the family. We drove up above town to a ski area to... read more
Self driving including short hikes and other activities, Iceland - Sep 1 - Sep 14, 2017
Friendly and responsive staff. good itinerary. We enjoyed the trip very much.
Navigation directions had inaccuracies or were out of order that led to skipping some destinations or having a "phantom" starting point on one of the detours.
Not clear if going on a potholed road all the way to Látrabjarg makes sense, since the puffins leave in mid August.
5-day tour of the north: akureyri, lake myvatn, waterfalls, and geothermal hotspots, Iceland - Jul 30 - Aug 5, 2017
Very helpful for a very last-minute vacation! We loved some of our lodging accomodations and really enjoyed the sites you suggested.
Preeti was very responsive at every moment that we needed her, and she created a terrific itinerary for us as we knew little about our destination and what we wanted to see.
Fire, ice and adventure, Iceland - Sep 2 - Sep 10, 2017
The driving plan didn't include GPS coordinates or addresses for each location which made navigating hard at times. Some of the hiking trails that were mentioned and sites to see the written directions weren't sufficient enough to easily locate trails/site.
Halldor was very responsive during planning however the driving plan lacked the addressed/GPS coordinates needed to easily navigate the island from place to place.
Iceland with an 11-year-old, Iceland - Jul 31 - Aug 4, 2017
This was my first experience using kimkim and I'm now a huge fan. I had a last-minute trip to plan and little time to do so and kimkim connected me with a wonderful travel agent. I felt completely confident sending funds to someone in another country I had never met because of the structure of kimkim and other's reviews. I would never have found this travel agent without kimkim but I'm so very glad I did. And I appreciated the ability to look at potential itineraries before making a choice... read more
Honeymoon, Iceland - Aug 15 - Aug 19, 2017
This was such a great experience!! All we had to do was follow the itinerary. It was so detailed and so easy to follow. Thank you so much kimkim!!
Honeymoon in july, Iceland - Aug 5 - Aug 14, 2017
Halldor did a great job at answering all our questions. He was prompt and always gave us options. The advice was well received and everything worked out great. He delivered on every request we had. Great job!
Halldor did a great job and gave us an itinerary that was very well balanced. We visited some of the most popular spots, but there were also special places that had very few people and just as beautiful.
30th birthday trip two sisters traveling together, Iceland - Jul 31 - Aug 6, 2017
However, one detail that would've been nice to have is the suggested resturants closing times so I could have planned dinner better, as I was usually arriving just in time.
Preeti was AMAZING, available everyday until my last day of trip. It made things really flexible as I altered my trip when learning new sites to see as I met fellow travelers.
Louanne, Iceland - Jul 22 - Aug 4, 2017
Minor amounts of additional info would have help. Example is one of the guest houses did not serve breakfast. We did not bring food. Minor
Iceland trip, Iceland - Jul 14 - Jul 20, 2017
Well, it was between really good and perfect. We had a great time. The itinerary allowed us to see everything without feeling too overwhelmed. We only missed one thing on the super rainy and windy day. We are already planning our return trip! Turns out that where we spent our first night (and also our last) is a great place for seeing the northern lights, we are thinking of coming back for that, hopefully this winter. Thank you for your help in everything, you made our trip trouble free and memorable.
Trip to iceland, Iceland - Jul 1 - Jul 13, 2017
Kimkim and Halldor provided a great service for us.
I have planned fairly long international travel before and found it exhausting. It was great to just say what we wanted to do and have it taken care of. Everything worked out great in terms of having the vouchers we needed to do all the excursions we wanted.
Iceland is an incredibly beautiful country. Laugevegur deserves its position as one of the top hikes in the world! It is also totally doable in 2 days (but painful). This was by far the highlight of our trip.
Would definitely use this service again.
8-day ring road itinerary: explore iceland’s top places along its most famous road, Iceland - Jun 28 - Jul 10, 2017
The team was able to work in my added side trips to the schedule in a very efficient way.
Halldor and the team were great, answering all my "silly" questions about how things work in Iceland.
The communication initiated by the team did stop abruptly once my balance was paid though. It would have been better to at least drop me a line a week or so before my departure to verify everything was arranged.
8-day ring road itinerary: explore iceland’s top places along its most famous road, Iceland - Jun 28 - Jul 7, 2017
Probably open by saying that nothing is ever perfect so that's my standard. Overall was very good! Was a little concerned about getting the confirmation that things were booked, etc. until ~60 hours before leaving. That said, the arrangements were 99% there (first night accommodation apparently sent email with instructions - Golden Circle Apartments (a code to access key box for identified apartment) - that I didn't have). Apart from that, the bookings were on the money. The google maps and... read more
Ring road' or 'snæfellsnes peninsula...' 7-9 day itinerary, Iceland - Jul 7 - Jul 15, 2017
The written itinerary and maps didn't match exactly which caused us some confusion a couple of times - nothing too major but when you can't understand the place names, it added some challenges.
Same as above - but by and large everything went really smoothly. For those days where we needed to arrive somewhere at a specific time (ie to catch a ferry), it would have helped if the itinerary had said we would need to leave our hotel by a certain time to view the suggested stop along the way -... read more

Thank you so much to the KimKim team for putting together such an amazing vacation for us. Everything was customized to exactly what we wanted. An extra special thanks for working with us through our 2-day flight cancellation/travel delay issues!
Halldor was great!
Iceland trip, Iceland - May 9 - May 14, 2017
Small hiccup that was weather related. Could have been more responsive during the planning period. Itinerary was outstanding and the way that it was adjusted when the weather threw a monkey wrench was great. Otherwise, we loved it.
Timing of responses could have been better. When I started directly emailing him and calling while in Iceland, communication was much better
