Duncan was a fantastic guide. He listened to our preferences and clearly tailored a trip to our desires. He spaced the hotels well to keep the driving very manageable each day, but at the same time we covered a lot of ground and felt like each day we still saw a lot! His food and hike recommendations were great. He was responsive and helped give us options to adjust our trip if we needed based off how the day was going.

Reynisfjara black sand beach
Fjadrargljufur canyon
Hjorliefshofdi Cape and Cave hike

It was a truly amazing and memorable trip that my wife and I will cherish!

Blue Lagoon

Quality of Experience
Vatnshellir Lava Cave Tour
Snæfellsnes Peninsula

Was interesting and an hour is definitely enough. Not a must do stop, but was nice

The Secret Lagoon
Iceland

I would skip if you have the chance to do Blue Lagoon. It was crowded when we went and was just less relaxing than the Blue Lagoon

Quality of Experience
Skaftafell Glacier Hike
Iceland

Truly special experience, was fascinating to learn about the glacier structures and changes over time. I would opt for the 5 hour tour to get to explore further on the glacier
