This was a fantastic tour. You spend a lot of time on the road but you get to see so much in just one day. The landscapes are awe-inspiring as are the tales that accompany them. Peter, the guide, told us histories, myths, and legends along the way. Mount Kirkjufell is breathtaking. My best photos of the trip came from this place.
The tour was perfectly organized. The time and stops where planned to see the most important places. Very remarkable our guide, Howser. Extremely profesional and friendly. Moreover, following Howser recomendation we ate a really tasty cod for a good price. Excellent day and tour!!! 100% recomendable
The weather was not the best, but our guide made sure to show us much more than the trip promised and adapted the day to the weather in the finest way.
Howser was the best. Great sagas and extra stops. Best day in Iceland so far.
