What people are saying about Northeastern Region, Iceland

I highly recommend this tour to all people willing to come to Iceland and see beautiful landscape. During this 6 day tour, I was able to visit most of the beautiful places along the ring road. I really liked the ice cave and the glaciar hiking. There are some other places that we visited which were not mentioned in the program such as Chrismas House and beautiful canyons, which I found very beautiful too. I am sure that this tour is perfect for those who want to see the beauty of Iceland within a short period of time. But this tour is also ideal to those willing to stay more in Iceland, because an 8 day tour is also available. Our guide Ionuț was very passionate and friendly, which made my trip even more pleasant.

I would definitely recommend a visit here the lifelike earthquake and volcano film are amazing. The animals are lifelike and Informative. The ice cave is actual real snow and ice make sure you wrap up warm its freezing in there. The sealife video is amazing. The 360 degree viewing from the deck is spectacular. They have a really nice place on the top floor for food and drinks including alcohol. My favourite activity was the aurora it is breathtaking I had to watch it twice. Definitely one of my favourite days.

Our guide was Mike and he was great! He was on time at the morning and always very kind with us. He knows a lot about Iceland culture (he is from UK) and speaks 4 languages. We followed the tour as the description and gave us plenty of time to enjoy every stop. We totally recommend to take this tour.

We had a great time exploring the Glacier. Our guide, Tina, was fantastic! Lots of fun and she was informative.

Exceed my expectations! Impresive, they took all safety precautions. Wonderful experience
