REVIEW: “Outstanding tour of a beautiful and amazing country”

We spent 8 days in Iceland with our driver / guide Orri Amin, an experienced and delightful person who’s been with Discover Iceland for many years. Orri and “his” modified 4-wheel drive Nissan, nicknamed “Joy”, took us around Iceland in 8 days. Orri made sure we got our money’s worth — from horseback riding, to whale watching, to snowmobiling on a beautiful glacier, to visiting a farm, to eating delicious lobster and other fish — and to being driven to so many waterfalls we lost count!

REVIEW: “Creative and Fun Tour Guides”

We went for a 7 day private tour of Iceland in late December thinking that time of year would give us the best chance to see the Northern Lights and the incredible Ice Caves we’d seen in various photos. We scoured Trip Advisor for the best tour guides and landed on Discover Iceland. Obviously, you’re always at the mercy of the weather that time of year, particularly in Iceland.

Westfjords Strandir | 3 Day Private Tour

Strandir: The Last Frontier. The region of Strandir in the Westfjords is paramount for isolation, beating to the sound of silence and oblivion in winter. The vast expanses and deep and long fjords are Discover Iceland’s destination, as we reach out on this 3-day super jeep tour, both in summer and winter.

Strandir: The Last Frontier. The region of Strandir in the Westfjords is paramount for isolation, beating to the sound of silence and oblivion in winter. The vast expanses and deep and long fjords are Discover Iceland’s destination, as we reach out on this 3-day super jeep tour, both in summer and winter.

And what can you do in this pristine environment by the Arctic Ocean? Check on the infinity pool of Krossneslaug, maybe opt for snowmobiling (deep winter only), see the northern lights (Sep – mid April) do some hikes, enjoy the fascinating scenery with its waterfalls and driftwood sprinkled on the shores … and breathe.

PRICE: The price here quoted is for a group of 4 people. We can tailor this adventure tour for other group sizes – contact us on info@discover.is for a price quote.

We’ll be accommodated for two nights in Djúpavík, which is the place where you can see an old herring factory. If you like photographing decay, this is going to be paradise for you.

Today we set off for the Westfjords, and we’ll make a detour towards the area of Borgarfjörður, where we see the cascades of Hraunfossar and Barnafossar. Then we visit the largest of all Icelandic lava tube caves, Víðgelmir, known as The Cave. This activity is a guided by a local specialist. The cave has a wooden platform where we can walk, all the way.

We finally meet the Arctic Ocean. We’ll see driftwood that has been encircling the entire polar region, before landing on these shores. The scenery of fjords and mountains is staggering.

On our second day we will explore this area in depth. The geothermal infinity pool of Krossneslaug is a must (don’t forget your swimsuit and towel). Then we head further north for even more desolate areas, such as Fjord Ingólfsfjörður.

The summer program may include hiking in search for hidden waterfalls, and the midnight sun. The winter program may include northern lights, and the possibility of snowmobiling during the months of February and March.

The serene beauty of the Strandir region will say goodbye to us today. As we head south, we will visit other locations. After Hólmavík, we take the road toward a fjord with a thousand islands and skerries. Absolutely breathtaking views there. Today we’ll make a very interesting cultural visit to the replica of the viking longhouse where the discoverer of America was born, Leif Eriksson (Leifur Eiríksson for us). He set foot in America around 1000 AD.

Would you like to take a hike on a volcano? That’s exactly what we’ll do next. It’s possible to hike on Crater Grábrók by a marked trail, and your guide will explain the geology of this volcanic fissure.

The BEST and only way to really see Iceland

During our cruise to Iceland my husband and I decided to book a private tour with a local company rather than relying on the cruise line during our time in Reykjavik. After a lot of researching we decided to book with Discover Iceland, which turned out to be a brilliant decision….

The ONLY way to see Iceland

I cannot say enough good things about Discover Iceland. The office was very responsive and informative while booking tours and the guides were all extremely nice, professional, and fearless when it came to the snow-covered roads in blizzard-like conditions. We had the fearless Orri and his amazing “super-jeep” Joy for two tours (Golden Circle with snowmobiles and Southern Coast) …
