Trip to Iceland - Nov 28 - Dec 3, 2018

Traveler: Jenny T. - Local specialist: Laufey Sigurðardóttir

We were very lucky to have Laufey as our travel specialist, she was extremely helpful and patient with my specific requests and ended up creating a travel itinerary that was perfect to our needs! They even covered some costs for us due to some small misunderstandings. We're very thankful for that plus the great trip that we had!

From landing to departure everything was taken care of. We were picked up at the airport by a private driver, taken straight to our hotel and Laufey even prepared a very detailed guide for our self-directed day tour around Reykjavik.

On the second day, we were picked up by Jón, our Icelandic Mountain Tours guide. The bus only had a total of 6 people (including Jón) but yet they still proceeded with the tour. The weather was insane that day, with crazy winds. Lots of day tours were cancelled. Lucky for us, Jón flipped our tour backwards and did tons of research to make sure our transportation to the Golden Circle was safe. The winds were very very strong, and Jón focused on the drive to make our safety the utmost priority. Our entire group was crazy jetlagged so we had a difficult time staying awake while he was explaining history/geology/etc., and we feel so remorseful for that!

The next two days we drove even further, went to the Glacier Bay, Diamond Beach, and also did a glacier walk and ice caving. I highly recommend the glacier walk on Skaftafellstofa! We also admired the Black Sand Beach, waterfalls, and gorgeous views, before ending our private tour with Jón and heading back to the capital.

We were also scheduled for snorkeling at the Silfra as well as the Blue Lagoon.
I have so many great things to say about this trip and the way Laufey planned it out for us! From start to finish everything was done perfectly and left us with little to worry about.

Thank you so much!
