What people are saying about Highlands of Iceland

Second time to do this. First time (May 2022) there was a lot more snow at the base camp and with clear blue skies we got some amazing pictures. This time (26th Nov) we had to travel a bith further up but it was just as amazing. It was a total whiteout and with the sun breaking through it really felt like you were in a unique place. The guides are excellent and informative and the experience of going on a snow mobile is a must. Highly recommended. We have used Get Your Guide a few times now and they are very trustworthy and reliable.

We had an amazing day and we’re lucky enough to have our guide Ants from Mountineers. He was really informative and gave us a unique tour as there was only us on it. He took us to a great mushroom restaurant and gave us extra time at the secret lagoon. On the glacier we had great fun and the journey there and back was great too.

Really nice experience, great view, super nice and helpful employees and the price is justified in view of the use of materials and the staffing level.

Great guides, good planning and a sensational nature experience. Highly Recommended

Amazing trip and our tour guide Lewis was really good, friendly and knowledgeable
