Spectacular trip to Iceland!
Nov 5 - Nov 9, 2023
Spectacular trip to Iceland! My nephew is spending a semester abroad in Reykjavik, so we decided to visit! Such an easy flight from Boston ! Veronika helped us plan a wonderful itinerary for the three days, four nights we were there. She was quick to respond and make suggestions and we enjoyed everything! Thank you Veronika! We loved the walking tour with Oluf. The views from the top of the church were amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed dinner at Rok one night and Apotek another. We stayed at Alda hotel (awesome location for walking around the city) and the restaurant (Brass Kitchen) there was also great and convenient for the final dinner before we left. My sister and I spent a few fabulous hours at the Sky Lagoon which I will never forget…topped off by a gorgeous sunset! The Golden Circle tour was simply awesome…The Perlan museum was also a highlight with an incredible 360° observation deck and rotating cafe. Priceless memories with my parents who are in their 80s but still enthusiastic about new experiences. I will return to this amazing country again someday, hopefully with my young adult sons!! So much more to see and do but we were so grateful for all the experiences we had, the lovely people, the phenomenal scenery, the sunny weather!!
Awesome location within walking distance to so many shops, restaurants, transportation, etc. Great breakfast and wonderful restaurant, the Brass Kitchen.
Our guide Oluf was awesome! Kind and knowledgeable and personable.
On time and friendly
We loved the enthusiasm of our guide but unfortunately had a cloudy night and didn't see the Northern Lights
Awesome museum. We weren't going to get to a real ice cave so it was great to walk through the one in the museum. The Northern Lights show was also beautiful. Another highlight of this museum was the 360 degree observation deck...absolutely incredible views. The rotating cafe on the top floor was also great views, good food and worth a stop.
We had a gorgeous day and awesome sunset which made this extra special. A really fun way to spend the afternoon with my sister.
There was so much to see and do on this tour. I honestly wasn't really looking forward to the tomato farm but it ended up being an awesome experience. Yummy burrata salad and Bloody Mary! The natural wonders of Iceland are many but the Gullfoss waterfalls truly took my breath away! This tour is a must do!
