What people are saying about Laugarvatn

Great tour guide, enough time to discover everything. The tour was with a very small group, the tour guide shone with knowledge about the locations and Iceland. He also gave tips for our upcoming rental car tour. The locations of this tour are all stunning in their own right and were not too crowded at the time of our visit

Bjorn the guide was informative, interesting and passionate about his Country which Impressed me. Most of all he made my disabled 82 year old mother in a wheelchair tick off another item on her bucket list by being very compassionate and helpful , couldn’t recommend him enough Thankyou

I recommend. Beautiful views, a lovely day to end in Secret Lagoon. Everywhere there are prepared paths, routes to watch. A visit to a tomato farm with a tomato menu - interesting and tasty :) Very friendly service.

Our guide was very great, overall the entire trip was beautiful and I really enjoyed that instead of very quick stops the guide let us go out and explore on our own for almost an hour and just met back at the bus!

We loved our tour of the Golden Circle! Our guide was wonderful. Highlights included lunch at a tomato farm and the Secret Lagoon.
