The Silfra snorkeling tour was incredible! Our tour guide, Johnna was excellent. She took us through every step giving us confidence that we would have a wonderful experience. Even her underwater photography skills were amazing!.
Our trek on the glacier was exhilarating! Wei, our tour guide, was quite competent and offered both technical knowledge as well as a great deal of information about how the glaciers are reacting to the environmental impact of global warming.

Our experiences are too many to list, however, the weather was perfect and our hikes along the coast as well as to various waterfalls were exceptional. A bonus was our opportunity to see the northern lights! We had that opportunity on two occasions! Our only disappointment was it was too late in the season to see the puffins. I guess that will be a good excuse to return earlier in the summer.

We enjoyed clean, modern accommodations and the breakfasts were typical of European hotels with a plethora of options to meet anyone’s dietary desires. I cannot recommend enough this wonderful opportunity to see this beautiful country. The Kim Kim staff was exceptional in providing us with great accommodations, wonderful tour guides, and they even found beautiful weather for us to experience this amazing country!

Hotel Review
Árnanes Country Hotel
Höfn

This was a quaint accommodation with a warm feeling provided by wood paneling and a modern bathroom facility. This group of small cabins were placed just off of the main road and easy to find. The continental breakfast was exceptional with a full array of breakfast foods.

Silfra Snorkeling

The dry suits for first class and kept us nice and warm. Our guide was excellent and prepared as well for the experience. The sunny day allowed lots of light in to chasm and made our experience that much more memorable!

Quality of Experience
Guides, Drivers and Staff
With plenty of time to get to this venue as the GPS was not as accurate as we would’ve liked it to have been.
Jokulsarlon Glacier Kayaking Adventure
Iceland

Although somewhat overcast skies, the weather provided great opportunity for photographs amongst the icebergs and seals. Our tandem kayaks were stable and easy to operate. Our tour around the lagoon was relaxed and we enjoyed our tour guide thoroughly!

Vatnshellir Lava Cave Tour
Snæfellsnes Peninsula

Our tour guide was informative and provide us with a safe and pleasurable experience. He was great at answering our questions and was very knowledgeable about the geology of the area. He did not rushes through and we had plenty of time to take photographs.

Thank you for sharing your experiences with us. I'm glad to hear you got to see the Northern lights and had fantastic weather for most of your trip.
The puffin arrive in May and leave by the end of August which is perfect timing for spring and summer trips.
