During our tour we took a fair amount of stops for food and bathroom breaks which was nice. Being able to get food and stretch for a bit before going on long drives. During our drive the tour guide, Omar, gave us so much insight about iceland, how the mountains were made the landscape formations, and a ton of stories about the first settlers. Each major stop we took about 30-1 hour to explore the places and to take photos. One of our favorite locations was the black sand beach which had a frozen lagoon, lava mountain, and glacier all in one spot. Towards the night time we went to another location which required some hiking which was easy if you never hiked through deep snow before. At the end we stopped at a local community center for lamb stew and hot chocolate.

The most beautiful trip in Iceland. Wonderful nature (I would do this trip again in summer as well). Our guide was awesome, told us a lot about Iceland's history, culture and geographical landmarks. He also took care for our safety all the way. Totally appreciate it!

Our tour guide “The Ice Man” was awesome. I love his passion and dedication to making sure we all had a great day. His storytelling is also amazing and full of joy. Simply a magical, off the planet day. Iceland is magnificent ❄️♥️

Our guide and driver, Karol, was very informative and even brought us to a couple of places not on the official tour. The Snaefellsnes Penninsula is truly a mind-blowing experience and well worth the money to see.

wonderful trips. many stops to walk around so never feel tired. the travel guide and the drivere are excellent
