What people are saying about Ólafsvík

The tour was super interesting, we were incredibly lucky to see a young arctic fox! The landscape is just fantastically beautiful. Everything was very well organized, the tour guide Daniel was there and gave us a lot of information.

The bus exchange was not pleasant. However, once we got under way Joni and Magic, we’re excellent as guide and driver. Great information given at all times. Breathtaking scenery and well worth the long trip. Thoroughly recommend.

Many natural attractions on the trip, where you leave the small tender, so it didn't feel long despite the 12-hour duration

Great day, beautiful places. And David, our guide is absolutely passionate about his region and he communicates it very well

Very complete excursion with a large number of activities. Highly recommended.
