"Very good tour in quite extreme weather conditions. Picked up from the cruise port.
My only negative is that we were not aware that the coach had turned up as there were many coaches there and Extreme Iceland was not displayed on the front of the coach. All sorted eventually by a telephone call."
"We did the Golden Circle Tour for the afternoon. Bus picked us up bang on time.
The tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions on almost everything Iceland related!
Plenty of stop time at each place with the opportunity to get coffee or lunch at the National Park and the Hot Springs.
Would definitely recommend using Extreme Iceland / Arctic Adventures."
The tour was excellent and so was our guide. He was knowledgeable and helpful and answered all our questions...
I enjoyed the tour tremendously because the driver was very pleasant and knowledge. It was nice to have the 20 seat coach instead of the full size 60 seat coach, sometimes it takes awhile for people to get on and off the bus. It was a pleasant surprise when the driver stopped at the cow farm for us to purchase "fresh" ice-cream made with the milk from the cows at the farm.
This tour was amazing!! Perfect tour if you have little time and want to see the main sights! Vlad was an amazing tour guide and gave us great information. I would recommend this tour to anyone traveling to Iceland!
"I was very satisfied with the tour. I was only in Iceland for a day and this was one of the few company's that offered an afternoon start. Our tour guide was wonderful and the stops were so incredible that I am now planning to return yearly for trips around Iceland!
I highly recommend this tour and Extreme Iceland.
This tour was a fantastic way to see some of the major highlights within easy day-tripping distance of Reykjavik. Geysir was such a unique area, like a tiny Yellowstone, Gullfoss was absolutely amazing. And Thingvollir, just WOW! You can see where the earth is being ripped apart. Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic to answer all of our questions, and additionally offered a lot of local knowledge and history! Super interesting.
"Our tour was great! First of all, the weather was amazing. At the waterfall, I was expecting unicorns to come out, it was so magical.
Our tour guide was so educational and funny.
I would recommend Extreme Iceland to anyone!

I went on the Golden Circle Afternoon Tour after doing the Lava Tunnel in the morning. It was a really great trip, and perfect for a nice half day. There are a lot of Golden Circle Tours available, but this one is ideal if you're pressed for time or have done the Golden Circle before and want to see it again. If you are the type to take your time at each stop or are traveling with a larger group, I'd recommend the day trip instead. Either way, the Golden Circle is a must see in Iceland and the small group size offered through Extreme Iceland made the trip much more comfortable. All around a great experience!
"We had heard nothing but great things about Extreme Iceland before our trip, so we didn't hesitate to book a few tours through their website, before we arrived.
Really glad we did it, the company supplied us all the info we needed in plenty of time and our Golden Circle tour was great, the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Sadly, our Whale Watching was cancelled due to the storm that hit Reykjavik that day, but I guess we can't blame you for the weather!
We'll be using Extreme Iceland again when we return!"
Overall the trip was very good. Driver was nice and available to answer questions.
This was a fantastic tour! Just the right amount of information and length to keep us informed but not feel like we were being herded around like sheep. Our guide gave us the history and information while we were on the bus and then let us go on our own once we reached each spot. Had it been only my husband and me we would have liked more time to explore at each spot but since we had our two young boys with us, the amount of time at each was just right. Would definitely recommend.
We enjoyed our tour of the Golden Circle. Our tour guide Alvaro was very friendly and knowledgeable. The trip was packed with exciting sights and breathtaking views. Alvaro timed our arrivals and departures at all the stops giving us plenty of time to take in the splendour and enjoy the different sights. I would recommend this tour to others.
Gorgeous landscape. Guide was engaging and knowledgeable. Bus ride was comfortable.
Good guide, fantastic tour.
Experienced tour guide who made us feel safe although driving through horizontal snow all day. Kept to the schedule and saw all the wonderful sights. Nuce having a small group. Would definitely recommend.
Very enjoyable experience from booking to pick up and the tour itself.
"Wow, what can I say! Everything was perfect, from the pick up to the drop off. We had such a fabulous time. Our guide was knowledgeable and also great fun. Iceland is spectacular, we were very very lucky with the weather. Brilliant blue sky’s but oh so cold! The Gysers, waterfalls and national parks were stunning and we were treated to nature’s best!
We were then dropped off in town and collected an hour or so later for their magical aurora tour. The forecast wasn’t great and our guide told us that there was little chance of seeing the lights. But how lucky were we. Within 10 mins of pulling up in the middle of nowhere the magical lights started to dance. We ere treated to a spectacular display and we also had our photographs taken by the guide.
We were the only tour bus there and this was awesome. I’ve seen other tours where there’s just so many coaches and people that it would ruin the experience. Wrap up warm though as it’s soooooo cold!
Thanks so much for making our stay so awesome and memorable!"
"Our Greek, yes Greek, tour guide was excellent! Nice guy, lots of information as we drive, but not too much. Weather slightly impaired things, but it is Iceland! Smaller vehicle definitely paid dividends than a full coach. It cut down the time to pick people up, wait for the obvious slow people back on the vehicle at each stop and was more personable.
Guide couldn’t have done more!
Most excellent adventure!!"
"This was actually our second tour with Arctic Adventures as we did a South Coast tour the day before with them also. Our tour guide was Albert, I really enjoyed this tour and indeed the tour guide. He was really knowledgeable, he had a cool personality and he made the tour fun! Our tour guide the day before was Fremont, and he was awesome as well. Without their insights into the place we visited, the tour would not have been the same. I look forward to visiting Iceland again in the future!"
The tour was in general really nice. The tour guide shared lots of interino facts and organized the tour very well. Because of the bad weather, the sequence of places that we visited changed a little bit because so we could enjoy everything. The only inconvenience was that there was a lot of wind and the bus didn’t have the door properly closed due to a bad gasket resulting in a lot of noise during the whole tour.
Our travel guide was very knowledgable and passionate during our tour and I really appreciated what he had to share. The tour itself was great, if you have a open half day I would highly recommend. The van we rode in was clean and the tour guide seemed organized. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone traveling to the beautiful country of Iceland.
"The guide we had was kind, thanks to her, we've learned lots of Icelandic stories and expressions!
The golden cercle is a must-do thing!"
"We did 2 tours with Extreme Iceland. The Golden Circle afternoon tour was great. Sven was friendly & funny and made the tour incredible! I would totally recommend it to anyone.
The day before we were on the all day tour - the weather was not great (understand this happens and not the tour company's fault), but the tour guide did not seem to want to be there. He rushed us through our stops - if the weather was bad at least let us stay longer at the places that were better. He told us not to go up a walkway at a waterfall as we didn't have time and ""there wasn't anything to see"". A few people did anyways (in good shape and were able to do it) and said it was great. Don't lie and just say we don't have the time instead of telling us ""there is nothing to see"". Very disappointed with the tour guide!"
The tour and guide were great! Really got to see the top attractions in the area and a few more that weren’t on the schedule because our guide was an extra bit of awesome!
Our tour guide Johan was great! A true Icelander, he told us a lot of local history and insight into the culture. This shorter tour of the Golden Circle was a great way to spend an afternoon. The waterfall was impressive, and very different from other falls we saw on subsequent tours.
My husband and I had a wonderful time on the golden circle tour. Our tour guide was called Nick and he was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Iceland. We would definitely recommend!
We were picked up from a point of our choice, but had to wait a while. Guide was very friendly and told us lots of interesting Icelandic facts. Our visits were relatively short to each place but as the weather was so cold we didn't mind. The waterfall was breathtaking to see and the geyser was really fascinating. The national park was amazing and all worth a visit, Iceland is a really beautiful country. I would recommend this tour.
The guide is very nice and interesting. Thanks for his guiding. The golden circle winter is amazing I really like it!
Great afternoon seeing geysers and waterfalls and horses and tectonic plates. Johann was the best tour guide ever! Very highly recommended.
"Our tour guide is very informative as he is a teacher he can deliver the story very clearly even I sat at the back. I enjoy hearing a lot of facts about Iceland. As he talked a lot, a little bit dangerous driving happened at the beginning. But he is great overall.
The tour is little bit rush and we could only go half of the circle but I know we need to see a lot of spots within certain time so which is expected.
Overall, I love the tour!"
Great and enthusiastic guide - although he wasn't a local, he provided great and interesting info about the sites along the way. We knew there would be limited time at each spot, but it was enough to get a feel for the area and take pics.
Such a wonderful afternoon with our lovely guide, Saga!
Our tour with guide Tomas was really good. All way he was telling us stories about places, geography, history, culture and etc. We enjoyed our day spend in this tour. Thank you.
I feel that when the tour guide says a certain time to be back that people need to be back. this 6 hours tour WAS PERFECT amount of time to see the Geysir, Gulfoss, and national park. it is a MUST SEE.. Iceland is amazing
Thomas my tour guide was awesome. Very informative and nice. Enjoyable to have as a tour guide. Great experience.
"Fabtastic tour, Norris our guide, he was absolutely brilliant, very knowledgeable!
Would definatly recommend.
Great tour. Guide very knowledgeable and personable.
All good. Tour was better than expected.
Tour was great and just as advertised. Our guide, Haffi, was informative and an excellent driver as well.
Fantastic tour, unforgettable memories, the most spectacular landscape and we loved Haffi our tour guide, so knowledgeable and funny. Thank you!!
With only a short time to spend in Iceland we opted to do a day tour. It was a wise choice. We got to see a lot more and learn a lot more than would otherwise have been possible. Thank you.
