Traveler

Hi, happy to help with your trip to Iceland. Do you know your travel dates, and what kind of activities you're interested in? One of our local experts can tailor a custom plan for you and answer any specific questions

Traveler

What month are you thinking?

Traveler

Perhaps August.

Traveler

Got it. Do you have an approximate budget in mind?

Traveler

I don't sorry but not too expensive. Don't want to skimp on quality though.

Traveler

Ok, thanks. Just will help us make our recommendations. I'll invite one of our local experts in Reykjavik to join the chat, and he'll be able to put a plan together for you. Just so you know, August is the busy season in Iceland, and accommodation will be limited. He'll do his best to advise, here.

Traveler

Once you know your exact dates, this will help determine the accommodation costs, etc

Traveler

and see what's available

Traveler

Ok. Happy for reply tomorrow no rush.

Traveler

Sounds good. Expect another notification email from kimkim once you have a new message. Again, we won't be able to confirm the plan or details until we know your exact dates, so let us know as time goes on what dates are likely to work for you

Traveler

Ok will try and get a date together. Cheers.

Traveler

Perfect. Thanks for the info, and you'll hear back from us soon

Hi, nice to meet you.

My name is Bjorn and I am a Iceland travel expert at kimkim. I am born and raised in Iceland and I know my country well by experience.
I am very happy to assist you in planning your Iceland adventure!

Would you like to do a self drive or join planned excursions? It is not likely that you will see the Northern Lights in August so if that is a preference I would advise you to come a little bit later.
