What people are saying about Akureyri
Our guide and driver, Mr. Hjalti Björnsonn was outstanding, really top-top. He took care about us on an excellent way till the very last minute, his knowledge about Iceland was fantastic! He gave us a few extra chances to see even more, than it had been promised. Everything was precisely organised, we were really satisfied. We do hope so, that he will be our guide our next Iceland trip again in sometime next February. The only remark is the overused and that's why a bit uncomfortable seats. After 2-3 hours travelling we were happy to stand up. The hotels were nice, most of them were really excellent.
Paul was an excellent guide giving us all a well balanced tour of this area with a good amount of relevant information without overloading us. We were fortunate that we had our best day of weather on our cruise and we made the most of it enjoying the incredible views from the mighty Godfoss falls, geyser's and lava fields to the panama's around each bend in the road.
Easy to book online. Warm overalls to wear outside. Bit slow to find whales, about an hour. But then followed a pair for some time as they dived and came up again. 4 instead of 5 as friends saw humpbacks, minke and puffins from a trip in Reykjavik. Appreciate it's the luck of the draw.
Leo our guide had excellent English and superb knowledge of Iceland and its geology. A well timed tour with plenty of things to see. The godfass waterfall was fantastic.
Highly recommended. My sons even named a whale. One of the best experiences as a family.
