Seven day action-packed trip to Iceland impossible without KimKim
Iceland | Feb 15 - Feb 22, 2023

Seven day action-packed trip to Iceland would not have been possible without the help of Silvia at KimKim. She worked out a fantastic itinerary: 2 days based in Borgarnes, 2 days in Vic, a fantastic night at a cabin in the Hrifunes Nature Park (great venue for Northern Lights!), finally 2 days in Reykajavik. We had pre-paid vouchers for everything and Silvia worked with us ahead of the trip to make sure we were hitting everything we wanted to see.
More important: Silvia kept in touch throughout the trip and when bad weather caused us to cancel a trip east to Skaftafell, she had alternatives for us and handled all the rebookings. Loved the constant check-in and help with everything.
We will definitely use KimKim again and "where to go next" will be determined on where KimKim operates. We saved money with KimKim and had a fabulous time. Thanks!

Hotel Reviews
Hrifunes Nature Park

Great location on the south coast of Iceland. Several cabins spaced far enough apart for privacy. We had a three-bedroom unit, clean and modern. We cooked in the well-equipped kitchen and had a fantastic time. Condition of everything was fantastic and very close to new.

Authenticity & Character
Modern unit furnished almost exclusively from Ikea.
Great location for Northern Lights: dark skies, no light pollution. Convenient for hiking / touring the South - South East coast of Iceland.
Easy to reach for check-in / check-out, helpful with firing up the hot-tub.
Cleanliness & Comfort
Everything was "like new" - well maintained and trouble free. Comfy beds.
Berjaya Hotel Vík

Fantastic hotel located conveniently in Vic, opened 5-6 years ago, everything in great shape. Rooms were larger than expected, nicely finished. Restaurant was fantastic for breakfast and dinner. Good bar, exercise room. Helpful, friendly staff. Would stay again.

Authenticity & Character
Lobby well done with Iceland geology references, great wood finishes in rooms. Great place to come back to at the end of a busy day.
Vic is a great base to see the South Coast of Iceland, Icelander Hotel Vic is the best place to stay in town.
Excellent local knowledge and helpful planning outdoor activities when the weather was challenging. Local eating recommendations were spot-on good.
Cleanliness & Comfort
5-6 year old hotel, everything was "like new."
