    Arctic Adventure is a good tour company and we had very good experience taking their 7 Day Complete Iceland Tour late September 2019. Personally, we are happy that we took this guided tour instead of driving our self. This tour covers all of Iceland . The 17 seater Mercedes

    Probably the worst tour company I've ever been with. Just completed the 7 day tour. Had one guide who was amazing (fever), but one who was very rude to me on my final day. Beyond this, read the itinerary, some days are really a 1/2 day at best, but you pay the full day. For

    Dear Adam, Thank you for taking the time to share your impression. We also would like to thank you for sharing your thoughts on what extra activities could be included during the farm visit. Each day is already quite tightly packed with sightseeing since we have quite a limited amount of daylight during autumn and winter months. Therefore, we do not include a horseback riding activity as it would cut the time you can spend at other amazing sites later on during the same day. However, we do offer horseback riding as a separate day activity. Please also note there are certain health and safety regulations in regards to how much time a guide/driver can spend driving. We are terribly sorry for the wrong size of rental shoes that had been brought on the tour. We have checked with our finance team and can assure you that the issue has been resolved in a rapid manner. We hope despite the trip being not what you have wished or expected it to be you have enjoyed your stay in Iceland.

    It was one of the best trips that I have ever taken and I have traveled quite a bit. The landscape on it’s own was enough to put this trip over the top. But having such excellent guides made the trip even better than I could have imagined. Haffi was our 6 day guide- he took such
