What people are saying about Capital Region of Iceland

Probably one of the most beautiful days I have had anywhere. Well worth the money. Seamlessly beautiful part of the world. Guide/driver (Oskar) was superb. The length of the trip being 11/12 hours seems a lot but it passes effortlessly with there being so much to see. The trip is varied, you get to see both natural beauty, from mountains to waterfalls to glaciers to beaches and you get to see what some towns are like too. The van I travelled in was comfy, spacious and a good temperature throughout.

Although the trip was postponed for 1 hours, it is a smooth trip with little group of people. The guide, Oscar, is very supportive and helpful. He managed to give knowledge about Iceland while driving. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in exploring west coast.

Very good trip along the island. Lots of stops along the way. Beautiful views of vulcanos, springs, small villages, ocean, etc. Nature is just awesome! Interesting stories told by the guide. No rushing, plenty of time to enjoy the views and take photos.

Excellent trip with an amazing tour guide(Oskar) who went out of his way to show and inform us about the many beautiful sights. We even had some time to fit in a couple of extra stops, which included seal watching. Would highly recommend

Very friendly and knowledgeable guide, great taste of Reykjavik
