What people are saying about Reykjavik

Wish we could have seen the lights, but they just weren’t cooperating. The tour was great though. The crew go to great lengths to keep you informed, warm and comfortable; providing blankets and snacks. There are 3 decks with plenty of viewing opportunities. A great tour even if you don’t get to see the lights. Good luck!

It was a beautiful day regardless of the rainy weather and the clouds reaching almost to the ground at times. Wonderful atmosphere accompanied by wonderful Icelandic nature and a perfect guide man number one. Unforgettable memories for a lifetime. Thank you so much. Jaroslav Bastar, Czech Republic.

On time and very precise logistics. Make sure that you get pass printed at the desk at the terminal exit. The bus drivers do not have a bar code reader.

It was amazing! I didn’t know what to expect but the view and the atmosphere was something I will come back for again.

It was a great experience and we strongly recommend a visit to the Blue Lagoon
