It was amazing! It was snowing and cold but that ultimately added to the experience. We got to stop at all the places, though more time to see each would have been better, but they had to be brief so we could fit it all in! The snowmobiling was brilliant, could not recommend more.

This was the BEST DAY EVER! The guide was super friendly, was very clear on timings and every was organised and on schedule. The snowmobiling was the best experience during our time in Iceland and I would definately recommend it! The guide was also entertaining and told us about Christmas in Iceland which I enjoyed. Thanks!

I would highly recommend to everyone to do the snowmobiling when in Iceland it was an unbelievable experience. All I would say was it felt slightly rushed at some of the viewing points so we can could reach the activity in time but understand why this is needed due to the shorter days. The whole tour was fantastic.
