Trip of a lifetime! :D
Sep 10 - Sep 19, 2022
We have returned to London after a trip of a lifetime in Iceland. We wanted to say a huge thank you to Lisbet and the team for such an unforgettable holiday. Iceland is so breathtakingly beautiful and unique; we were lucky to have your experience and guidance to help us enjoy it! We’re both well-travelled but had never used a service like Kim Kim’s until now and we know that without your expert guidance, planning and speedy assistance, we wouldn’t have gotten as much out of Iceland had we planned the trip on our own. Your help in planning the days so we got the most out of it was excellent. Every day was packed with lots of activities and options yet felt nicely balanced. You also adapted quickly when we asked for adjustments or when we felt like we needed a break.
Asking us to pick the most memorable spots is probably like asking someone to pick a favourite child, but off the top of our heads our favourites were: Studlagil Hike, Reykladur Hike + warm river, glacier kayaking, glacier hiking, and Myvatn Nature Baths. The driving was also amazing, but like I say too many places to list!
Superb spot to spend our first two nights in Icleand, and the favourite of the bunch for one of the two travellers. Especially appreciated the roominess, staff, and location. Very stylish, too!
Great all around. The room was perhaps not as full of character as the other places we stayed, but very comfortable and clean. Probably the best breakfast of the lot of hotels we stayed at :D Also had cool design in the reception/lobby area.
The favourite hotel of the bunch of one of the two travellers. Loved just how stylish everything was, the breakfast was superb, and the room to me just felt like it had the most style/character of the bunch. Only wish is that it was perhaps slightly bigger.
This was a lovely place to stay and, relative to the other places we stayed, had the bonus of having a couple of "airport hotel" amenities, such as a shuttle to the airport (which we did not use) and breakfast from as early as 4 am (which we definitely did use, as our flight was at 8:30 am). Also liked having the adjacent cafe as our own breakfast room for the early breakfast.
A lovely spot full of character and with great amenities. Great service from staff and nearby to some small baths facilities !
Great all around, loved the very large room and windows to be able to take in the views outside! Useful as a kind of halfway point between Akuyreri and Reykjavik
Great place all around!
One of the absolute highlights of the journey and something I have never experienced elsewhere. Just an amazing experience coupled with top-notch service.
Amazing experience and unique to be able to hike a glacier also covered with volcanic ash/dirt! Unforgettable stuff :)
We did this at the end of a long, wonderful day and it was just spectacular. So many delightful moments, from getting a beer from a bar on the lagoon itself, to resting while leaning on a rock (putting beer on said rock) and admiring the sunset over the lake in the distance. Totally dreamy.
