"Fantastic experience and well organised trip by a highly reputable company. Our guide, Armaan, made our experience unforgettable. It was the middle of winter, we were the only people on the tour & the road conditions were bad so we couldn’t reach Dettifoss or Selfoss. However, Armaan went out of his way to make up for it and made sure we saw as much as we could. If you want local knowledge, fantastic humour & an awe inspiring experience, then we would highly recommend this trip."..."

Icelandic Horse Riding and Whale Watching from Akureyri
"This adventure was the BEST day! We started out on a gorgeous trail ride through a forest. It was not a nose to tail ride. Our guide was super friendly and fun and the ride was better because of her! After the ride, we were invited into the guesthouse to warm up with coffee and cakes. We were treated so warmly. It added so much more to our experience. Afterwards, the whale watching excursion was also phenomenal! We set off on our boat and our guide was very knowledgeable about whales and where was most likely to find them. We saw 5 whales and 3 of them were swimming alongside our boat! Completely breathtaking! When we return to Iceland, I will DEFINITELY be looking for this trip again!!"..."
