Review on TripAdvisor

"We did the 6 day Ring Road Tour with Hilmar. Every moment was absolutely excellent! We particularly enjoyed the whale watching, glacier hike and nature baths but everything we did was stunning! Hilmar was fantastic at giving just the right amount of history, folklore, tidbits and suggestions. He was especially good at recommending great food! Can’t wait to go back! I’m sending all my friends and family!"

Overview of the route we take

Day 1 - Golden Circle & South Coast

We will visit the amazing attractions on the Golden Circle route including a giant waterfall, a frequently erupting geyser, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then, we will head towards the southern coastline where we will enjoy the most spectacular views along the way. Before arriving at our lovely country hotel, we will make stops at Iceland’s most epic waterfalls: the majestic Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. From September to April, your guide can help you chase the Northern Lights at night.

Day 1 full itinerary

We will start the day at 8:00 am by collecting all of the passengers from their pickup locations. (Collection can take up to 30 minutes depending on your location.) With everyone on board, we will head towards the interior of the country and hit the famous tourist route called “the Golden Circle”.

Our first stop will be Thingvellir National Park, which has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for both its historical and geological importance. There, we will see the historic site where Althingi, the world’s oldest democratic parliament, was founded more than a thousand years ago.

There is no specific parliament building here as the people of Iceland used to hold their meetings here under the open sky. The “Lögberg” is a piece of rock and was the platform from where the law speakers would proclaim new laws with the imperious rift valley at their back.

Thingvellir is also famous for being the gap between two tectonic plates. There are several cracks between the Eurasian and North American plates lying at the center of the national park. These two plates continue to drift apart with the gap widening by about 0.78 in. (2 cm) each year. This movement creates the awe-inspiring geology in the area which we will be able to explore when we walk in between the tectonic plates.

Our next stop is the world-renowned Geyser Hot Spring Area where we will walk among bubbling hot springs and mud pots on the restless ground of an active geothermal area, passing by steaming fumaroles surrounded by colorful minerals. We will see the famous “Geysir” from which the English word geyser was adopted and its younger brother, Strokkur. The Great Geysir is dormant today but Strokkur erupts every 5-8 minutes so we will be able to see at least a few eruptions, for sure! The unearthly scenery will surely inspire us to get to know Iceland’s geology even better.

Then, we will move on to the majestic Gullfoss Waterfall (Golden Falls). Gullfoss was named after the golden-brown hue that surrounds the cascade on sunny days. If we are lucky, a stunning rainbow will form over the canyon, providing an amazing opportunity for photos.

Gullfoss, Thingvellir, and the Geyser Hot Spring Area are all things that everyone who visits Iceland should definitely see so you will be able to cross each one off of your bucket list in one incredible day!

After leaving the Golden Circle route behind, we will head south. We will continue our journey by driving on the Ring Road from now on. The South Coast is the other area that every visitor to Iceland wants to see. Iceland’s most dramatic scenery can be seen here. Every single meter is interesting and the landscape looks like the setting from a fairytale.

On our way to our accommodation, we will stop at two of Iceland’s most epic waterfalls: Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. We will have time to explore these outstanding natural beauties. At Seljalandsfoss, we can walk behind the cascade (when it’s not frozen, of course). At Skógafoss, we can take the stairs and walk up to its top, from where we will be able to admire the landscape.

We will spend the night in a small country hotel near the village of Vík. When the nights are dark from September to April, we will have the chance to see the Northern Lights. In summer, soak in the Midnight Sun.

Breathtaking views!

Day 2 - Vík - Skaftafell - Glacier Lagoon - Höfn

Day Two is also packed full of incredible sights! We will visit the Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach where we can see the famous for the Reynisdrangar sea stacks and the dramatic black basalt columns. Driving further east, we will cross the Eldhraun “fire lava” field, which is decorated by a fluffy layer of moss today. Then, we will drive to Skaftafell in Vatnajökull National Park where we will go for an adventurous glacier hike! In winter, we climb through a crystal ice cave instead of the glacier hike. At the end of the day, we will stop at the site that is often nicknamed as the crown jewel of Iceland: Jókulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. This surreal lake with floating icebergs and the nearby Diamond Beach are Iceland’s most photographed natural wonders! After the long and wonderful day, we will spend the night in a hotel in Höfn, the lobster capital of Iceland. Ask your guide for tips to find the Northern Lights!

  • Reynisfjara - The Black Sand Beach
  • Eldhraun Lava field
  • Vatnajokull National Park

Day 2 full itinerary

Our first stop of the day will be the deservedly famous Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach. It was ranked among the top ten non-tropical beaches in the world. Of particular interest are the picturesque Reynisdrangar peaks, standing in the water off the coast. A local legend claims that the sea stacks were once trolls that came down from the mountains during the night and were petrified by the touch of the first rays of sunshine. In low tide, we will be able to enter the cave behind the basalt columns. It’s huge and very spacious with interesting rock formations on the walls.

From Reynisfjara, there is a beautiful view over the sea arches and rock cliffs at Dyrholaey. In summer, puffins nest on the basalt columns. The volcanic beach of Reynisfjara certainly deserves its fame!

We will then move east and continue driving through breathtaking natural settings. We will pass by the legendary Mýrdalsjökull Glacier, which hides one of the most notorious volcanoes in all of Iceland beneath its ice, the mighty Katla.

The road cuts across the Eldhraun lava field, a bumpy, mossy field stretching for tens of kilometers. This unearthly terrain was once a fierce lava flow from the most fatal volcanic eruption in Iceland's history.

Soon we will arrive at Skaftafell in the Vatnajökull National Park. It’s an oasis of luscious green birch forests and rich vegetation surrounded by the giant outlet glaciers of Vatnajökull. The natural wonders that you will see here will take your breath away as you allow the wildly contrasting scenes to soak in.

Here, we will take a magical three-hour glacier hike up Vatnajokull, the largest glacier in all of Europe. This hike will be guided by one of our specialist glacier guides, ensuring that you are safe throughout the tour. Your guide will also be on hand to teach you more about this incredible outlet glacier and all the amazing things that you will be able to see from it.

During the winter (from November to April), we will be able to visit a naturally formed ice cave in the heart of the glacier! Ice caves are a natural phenomenon that form in winter and collapse in spring, so anyone visiting an ice cave can call themselves extremely lucky!

After our trip to the glacier, we will jump back in our bus and continue our adventure. For the last stop of the day, we will have the spectacular Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon to visit. Jökulsarlon is the deepest lake in Iceland and is filled with giant floating icebergs.

The lagoon is connected to the sea and the icebergs float slowly towards the open ocean. Here, the waves push them back onto the shore, creating a truly mesmerizing natural wonder. The sapphire water laps up against coal-black sands, which are peppered with pearl white and blue icebergs as well as ice rocks that look like precious stones. This coastline is called the Diamond Beach. It is a supernatural sight that will send shivers down your spine!

After this beautiful day, we will drive to our accommodation in the town of Hofn, celebrated as the lobster capital of Iceland. Ask your guide for tips to find the Northern Lights at night in winter!

We'll explore very diverse landscapes all around Iceland

Day 3 - East Fjords - Djúpivogur - Egilsstaðir

Today, we will drive on unpaved roads a while and see more of Iceland’s charming countryside. We will enter the matchless Eastfjords area where tiny fishing villages and idyllic fjord scenery await our exploration. After leaving the fjords behind, we will head to Lagarfljót, the famous monster lake. If we are lucky, we might be able to spot the giant serpent that lives in this lake according to the legends and even some YouTube videos. In the afternoon, we will set out for a short hike to explore the Hengifoss and Litlanesfoss waterfalls. They are the most stunning cascades in the east, beloved for the especially long basalt columns and red stripes that decorate the rocks around them. We will finish the day at the Iceland Wilderness Center, or Óbyggðasetrið. Housed at the edge of Northern Europe’s biggest wilderness area, this immersive center invites visitors to step back into the 19th century. The center was established by historian Arna and Icelandic movie set designer Denni. It includes a fascinating exhibit on past local culture. Our accommodations will be in the town of Egilsstaðir. Head out into the wilderness to chase the Northern Lights if you're here in winter.

Day Highlights

  • Hvalnes Nature Reserve
  • The East fjords
  • Djúpivogur village
  • Lagarfljót Lake
  • Hengifoss and Litlanesfoss waterfalls
  • Iceland Wilderness Center

Day 3 full itinerary

On Day Three, we will explore the eastern fjords of Iceland. As we make our way along the coastline, we will drive by the Hvalnes Nature Reserve, a remote and beautiful peninsula with insanely impressive mountains. Eystrahorn, Stokksnes, and Vestrahorn are located here, also known as the “horny mountains”. Surrounded by grassy black sand dunes, this place is more beautiful than you could ever imagine!

Our first stop of the day will be Djúpivogur, a traditional fishing village with centuries-old, colorful houses that will remind us of the village’s long history of trading. Djúpivogur has a population of 450 people who all make their living out of the sea. The nature surrounding it is beautifully varied. There is a picturesque, pyramid-shaped mountain nearby and a stunning coastline that makes the views even more interesting.

We will drive the serpentine roads around the Eastfjords and marvel at the stunning landscapes. After we leave the coastal area behind, we will head towards the legendary Lagarfljót Lake, the third largest lake in Iceland. It is famous for being home to Iceland’s biggest monster, Lagarfljótsormurin. This is a cryptid serpent that has been seen many times by locals during the ages, someone even caught it on a camera in 2012! While the existence of the monster might be just a legend, some locals truly do believe in it.

Near the lake, we will make a stop and venture off for a short, but scenic hike to Hengifoss, one of Iceland’s highest waterfalls at an impressive height of 420 ft. (128m). On our way to the waterfall, we will encounter another smaller, but no less spectacular one.

Litlanesfoss cascades into a narrow gorge from a height of 98 ft. (30 m) and is framed by extremely tall basalt columns, creating a spectacular natural gem.

About 0.6 mi. (1 km) from the first waterfall, we will have a complete view of Hengifoss in the gorge, dominating the landscape with its impressive height. The cascade is framed by a multi-colored rock face. The ancient layers of red clay from volcanic eruptions are trapped between layers of basalt to create stunning red stripe patterns in the rock. These are some very distinctive surroundings for a waterfall!

After the hike, we will jump in the car again and move on to Egilsstaðir, the largest town in East Iceland, where we will relax in a hotel for the night. From September to April, your guide can help you find the Northern Lights from the hotel.

Day 4 - Dettifoss - Mývatn - Goðafoss - Akureyri

On the fourth day, we will head north, traversing totally unique landscapes. On our way to the north, we will stop at Iceland’s highest farm and restaurant. Next, we will visit Dettifoss, the most voluminous waterfall in all of Europe. It was also an epic filming location for the movie Prometheus. On this day, we will also explore the area around Lake Myvatn, which will enchant us with its surreal volcanic landscapes, fierce geothermal fields, and mystical volcanic sculptures. We will also have the opportunity (as an optional extra) to enjoy a relaxing bath in mineral-rich alkaline geothermal water. On our way to our hotel, we will make another stop at a highly photogenic waterfall, the horseshoe-shaped Goðafoss, which also has a great amount of history. Before arriving at our hotel, we will make a stop in Akureyri, the capital of the North where we can enjoy a nice evening walk and explore the city center. After a day filled with extraordinary sights, we will end up in Dalvík, a 20-min drive from Akureyri. Slip away for a couple hours to chase the Northern Lights from September to April.

Day Highlights

  • Möðrudalur farm
  • Dettifoss Waterfall
  • Lake Mývatn
  • Námaskarð Geothermal Area

On Day Four, we will head towards North Iceland. After leaving Egilsstaðir behind, we will drive through a Highlands area, where the landscape is barren and somewhat extraterrestrial. On our way, we will have a stop at Möðrudalur, Iceland’s highest farm. Here, we can relax a bit and grab a quick bite at Iceland’s highest restaurant. At 1538.7 ft. (469 m), it has an excellent view of the pristine wilderness below.

From here, we will continue our drive and head towards Dettifoss, Europe’s most powerful waterfall. The vigorously cascading water is a unique experience to see, giving us a whole new perspective on the power of nature. Dettifoss was chosen to be a filming location for the famous Hollywood movie Prometheus. The opening scene, the Engineer’s sacrifice, was shot here.

After visiting Dettifoss, we will move on towards the volcanic wonderworld around Lake Mývatn. Covering an area of 14 sq. mi. (36.5 km2), Mývatn is the fourth largest lake in Iceland. An incredibly vibrant array of flora and fauna thrives around the lake as well as on its tiny islands. Myvatn is deservedly one of Iceland’s most valuable protected nature reserves.

During our travels around the lake, we will learn about the region’s violent volcanic history. We will go for a short hike in Dimmuborgir, “the Dark Fortress”, a fascinating garden of lava rock sculptures, huge rock pillars, caves, caverns, tunnels, and lava bridges. These strange lava formations are steeped in mythology. Our friendly tour guide will tell us all about Iceland’s thirteen santas and the many trolls who live among these strange sculptures.

Not far from the lake is one of Iceland’s most terrific geothermal fields, Námaskarð. The highly active volcanic terrain contains wildly bubbling hot springs and loud fumaroles surrounded by the colorful mineral-painted soil. The air smells intensely of rotten egg, which is the normal smell of sulfur. This can be quite unpleasant, but the sights will definitely make you forget about the smell!

Our next destination is the beautiful Mývatn Nature Baths. It is often nicknamed as the Blue Lagoon of the north as the color of the water is the same milky-blue as the Blue Lagoon while the entrance fee is half the price. Enjoying a pampering bath here is an optional extra which you can do at your own cost. You will have an hour and a half to relax and enjoy the benefits of the natural alkaline water before we continue our tour.

Our final stop of the day will be at the Goðafoss Waterfall. The “waterfall of the gods” was named when Iceland switched from the Norse religion to Christianity. According to the legends, this was the place where the pagan idols were destroyed when Iceland converted to Christianity. The water cascades from a height of 39 ft. (12 m) over a length of 38 ft. (30 m) and has a unique horseshoe shape, making it absolutely photogenic.

After our memorable day, we will head towards Akureyri, the capital of North Iceland. Even though it is very small with a population of fewer than 20,000 people, Akureyri is the largest city outside of the capital area. This picturesque town is located right in the heart of Eyjafjörður Bay and offers spectacular views in every direction. In Akureyri, you can expect cozy cafes, quality restaurants, inspiring art galleries, and good vibes! There is a good reason why this lovely town was chosen as the #1 best travel destination in Europe by the Lonely Planet in 2015!

After the adventurous day, we will spend the night in a hotel in Icelandair Akureyri, in the city.

Day Five is dominated by Iceland’s incredible wildlife. The tiny fishing village of Dalvík offers nearly a 100% chance of seeing whales as they are abundant in this bay all year round! Humpbacks, minke whales, and dolphins are frequently spotted in Eyjafjörður, the “island fjord” bay.

Seeing these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat is an experience that will last you a lifetime. Whales often swim close to the boat, frolicking around, and guaranteeing you will get a new perspective on the natural world. We may also see some amazing bird species, including puffins and many more in summer.

On our way back to the harbor, you can try some sea angling as well. Our friendly guide will teach you quickly how to do some sea angling, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in Icelandic culture. After the tour, we’ll barbecue the seafood you have caught and share it with each other.

Once we reach the shore, we will travel on around the beautiful Trölskaggi peninsula and will enjoy some of the best ocean scenery along the way. We will drive through picturesque small villages and thriving agricultural areas.

Our last stop of the day is Siglufjörður, a tiny village that was once the herring fishing capital of the North Atlantic Ocean. Continuing our scenic drive, we will drive around the peninsula and then reenter Iceland’s epic Ring Road. Finally, we will head south and drive to Laugarbakki where you will spend the evening at the hotel.

Note:For a small fee, upgrade your whaling adventure to a 1.5 hour RIB boat tour! This special boat tour is available from April to October and lets you get closer to the whales. The RIB boat upgrade does not include sea angling.

Day 6 - Borgarfjörður - Reykholt - Hraunfossar - Hvalfjörður - Reykjavík

Our amazing six-day adventure will end with a day packed with volcanic craters, hot springs, waterfalls, and historical sites. We will start our day paying a visit to Europe’s most powerful hot spring followed by two picturesque waterfalls, Hraunfossar and Barnafoss. The water of Hraunfossar appears from underground and Barnafoss is famous for its incredibly cyan-blue color. Our last destination will be the historic village of Reykholt, the hometown of Snorri Sturluson, an Icelandic historian and the author of many Icelandic sagas.

Day Highlights

  • Borgarfjörður
  • Grábrók Volcanic Crater
  • Deildartunguhver hot springs
  • Barnafoss waterfall
  • Hraunfossar waterfall
  • Reykholt
  • Snorralaug hot spring


  • Breakfast at your hotel
  • A Guided hike up Grábrók
  • Drop-off in Reykjavik
Day 6 full itinerary

On our sixth day, we will explore West Iceland, an area which the Lonely Planet voted as one of the best holiday destinations in 2016. We will spend the majority of our time in the Borgarfjörður area, which has many spectacular natural sights and is famed around the world for its majestic beauty.

Our day will begin with a short hike up to a highly scenic volcano crater, Gábrók. The red volcanic soil is covered with green moss patches, making it look like a vibrant painting. On a clear day, there are fabulous views over the lava field and the area as a whole.

The next stop is the bubbling Deildartunguhver hot spring. Europe's most powerful hot spring produces 50 gallons (180 liters) of water per second at a piping hot 97°C (200°F). All of the hot water in the towns and farms within a 60- to 70-kilometer radius is transferred there from Deildartunguhver.

As we move on, out next stop will be the unique Lava Falls. The waterfalls of Hraunfossar are very special as its countless creeks and cascades stream out of the ground. A waterfall without a river over it is quite a rare natural phenomenon! The water continues appearing from the ground for a distance of about 0.55 mi. (900 m). It is an extraordinary sight, making it one of the most beloved waterfalls of those who visit it.

A few minutes from Hraunfossar is another waterfall called Barnafoss or the “Children’s Waterfall”. According to a sad rumor, errant children have perished in its cyan blue water.

From here, we will travel to the historic and charming site of Reykholt. This was once the hometown of Snorri Sturluson, the Icelandic historian, lawyer, politician, poet, and author of many Icelandic sagas.

Snorri Sturluson is one of Iceland’s most famous people and lived here between the 12th and 13th centuries. His accounts of Nordic mythology are truly incredible and reading them will really help you to appreciate Iceland.

We will get to see Snorralaug, “Snorri’s pool”, an attractive geothermal hot pool you can dip your fingers in to feel the temperature of the water. The site is closed for bathers for its historical significance. The pool itself was built in the 10th century and may well be the oldest man-made structure in Iceland.

On our way back to the capital, we will drive by another scenic fjord, Hvalfjörður (the “Whale Fjord”). During World War II, the fjord was base of the British and American navies. Until the late 1990s, those travelling north from Reykjavík had to make 38.5 mi / 62 km detour around the fjord. Today, there is a tunnel 541 ft / 165 m below sea level that cuts travel around the fjord by about an hour. Normally, we’ll take the tunnel but if there is some extra time, we will drive all the way around the fjords. Keep your eyes peeled for more incredible wildlife and stunning scenery!

Depending on the weather, we will arrive back in Reykjavík at around 5-6 pm. This trip is jammed full of exciting adventures, stunning wildlife, magnificent nature, inspiring history, and culture. You will collect memories that you will never forget!

Excellent time with Extreme Iceland

5 by Diana Seder June 27, 2019
We had a wonderful time on our 6-day tour of Iceland! From start to finish, our guide Hodei was knowledgeable, thoughtful, friendly and fun. We enjoyed the various activities that were included in the trip and appreciated the background and historical context Hodei provided just before seeing whatever sight was in store. It was very nice that an optional group dinner was offered each evening for those that desired it--and no pressure for those that did not. Overall, our tour was excellent and I would recommend Extreme Iceland to anyone going to Iceland!

Best Tour Guide in Iceland

5 by Antonio May 31, 2019
Our tour guide, Hjalti Bjornsson is probably the BEST Tour Guide in Iceland. He took 13 individuals from different parts of the world and he made us feel like a big family on a 6-day road trip around Iceland. He took the time to listen and talk to us not only about the sights but also about other things, personal experiences and suggested itineraries. He is warm, friendly, respectful but also very resourceful. His resourcefulness was on full display when we had a flat tire in the middle of nowhere on our way to see the puffins. He immediately called up friends from a nearby village and within 10 minutes, 3 pickup trucks showed up and took us to the place where we were able to watch the birds while he replaced the tire. We did not lose any time in the itinerary for the day and this really impressed us. Great job, Hjalti! On a small note for future improvement, our accommodations for 3 persons in Dalvik was really small. Can this be made better or set the expectations to future travelers that this will be the case. We look forward to coming back, booking with Arctic Adventures and meeting new and old friends. Thank you for giving us an experience of a lifetime.

An amazing experience with an fantastic tour guide called Sindri. Highly recommend the tour if you don't mind a bit of cold and trekking. Accommodation varied from very good to basic but overall no issues there. The bus was a bit cramped but not uncomfortable. I'm very glad I did it!

Amazing tour and amazing tour guide! We got to see so much of the country and do so many different things. Our tour guide, Arnar was knowledgeable, passionate about his country, and always kept us laughing. Highly recommend this tour to anyone who truly wants to experience Iceland!

Fantastic Trip with an Awesome Tour Guide

5 by Kierston May 7, 2019
I usually shy away from tours, but I could not be happier with this experience. I traveled with 4 friends and this small bus was perfect for us. Just a few other groups and a few solo travelers in the bus around 16 people total. Most of the stops were very relaxed and allowed for everyone to move at their own pace. The absolute best part of this trip was our tour guide. Arnar (Eagle) was extremely proud of his country, told the best stories, and had me laughing so hard I was crying on Day 1 and continued to keep us laughing every day after that. He remembered everyone's special site seeing requests (animals, rainbows, waterfalls) and did his best to accommodate. I even asked for a chance to go for a run, and he figured that out as well without inconveniencing any of the other people on the trip and he didn't just drop me off at a track, but thought through the best place and it had amazing views! I really enjoyed staying in his hometown Dalvik and really appreciated the personal touches he brought to the tour. I cannot recommend this tour enough!

Great Trip

Had a wonderful time. We had great weather and our guide added extra stops. Learned so much about Iceland. Highly recommend it.

Amazing 6-day trip with the world’s best tour guide

5 by SarahM April 13, 2019
With every day of the tour, I couldn’t believe how awesome our guide was and the value I was getting for what I had paid. I have been recommending this tour to everyone who asks me about my trip. Everyone in our group agreed that our guide Palli (sp?) was the best guy we could have ever hoped to have showing us around the island. He was knowledgeable, funny, wise, and was perfectly in tune with the interests of the group and external limitations of safety, weather and schedule. I’d do it all over again!

Best honeymoon ever

5 by Monica and Jonathan April 9, 2019
"Before we booked the tour with Extreme Iceland we reviewed a lot of companies and a lot of routes and definitely the Ring Road tour with Extreme Iceland was the best decision ever. We feel that in this tour we got to know how beautiful and how powerful is Iceland, its unpredictable climate, its unique variety of landscapes, icelandic people is so nice, food is delicious and super healthy. Halffy was our guide and he definitely was a very important piece of our dream honeymoon. What we enjoyed the most was going across the glaciar through the ice cave, even the music on our way through the cave was so good. We expected a good trip, but you made it really wonderful and made our honeymoon just perfect. Thank you!!"

Brilliant guide

4 by Shez and Zah April 6, 2019
"Sindri was one of the best guides we have had in any holiday we’ve taken. He was so knowledgeable and interesting. Shared so many cool stories about Iceland that we would never have heard or know of if not for him. So much positive energy that it was contagious. He made a huge effort to help everyone have an experience that they enjoy and took us to see many local sites and interests that weren’t even on the itinerary just to perfect or experience. We would insist on him as a guide if we ever came back!"

Unforgettable journey

5 by Anne April 4, 2019
"Great Icelandic nature! The guide drove the car through the icy landscape and we felt safe at any time due of his kowledge and his experience. He told us a lot about Icelandic nature and culture and how people live in Iceland. We had a great time and a lovely group with international composition. Thanks to our guide Vignir?"


5 by Monica March 19, 2019
The tour has been absolutely perfect. Our wonderful guide, Hjaltib, made us feel secure, he was generous in explaining and getting us into iceland culture and history, he made us visit as much as was possible to see in a 6 days tour. He was enthusiast, passionate and he shared with us each moment, making us feel like a family. I felt in love with Iceland: its sceneries, the nature, even the changeable weather were amazing... and we lived it thanks to the perfect organization. Thank you Hjaltib. Experience with Extreme Iceland highly recommended

Memorable Trip in Iceland

4 by Sun Chan March 18, 2019
"This 6-day tour included most of the sightseeing places mentioned in the website. It would be wonderful for those who eould like to view the whole Iceland within a short duration of time. Some of them were skipped due to poor weather or time constraint. In my opinion, distributing much time in Southern part of Iceland during winter time may be more attractive. Since majority of the landscape were located in this area. We were in a hurry to reach all of those places within a very limited time provided, which was challenging to me for taking good pictures with professional cameras. Whale-watching was a quite disappointing event, especially in winter time when no whale can be seen. We were frozen by the cold wind on the ship for few hours, although hot drinks were provided. Accommodation was better than expected. Clean and tidy rooms. Some of them were quite spacious indeed. Some hotels were located far away from the town, so that we could view Northern light in winter simply by going out from the hotel. The tour guide Fifa had done a great job in handling different needs from all of us. She brought us to various magnificent landscapes all over Iceland with a cheerful attitude, making the trip so relaxed."

6 Day Ring Road Tour

5 by John Howk February 17, 2019
We had a wonderful time. Arnie our tour guide set just the right tone of showing you the country, but allowing you freedom to explore. We did have a couple of events cancelled due to weather- but these were out of everyone’s control. Enjoyed Iceland and will return.

Experience Iceland

5 by Dan Bannish February 17, 2019
"Our 6 day Ring Tour met our expectations and beyond. Our guide Hjalti Björnsson was exceptional by seamlessly navigating through blizzard and high winds while calmly providing historical, geographic, geological and personal information to place everything we found in context. We truly can say we “experienced” Iceland rather than “saw” it. We will definitely return and request Hjalti again. The tour was not crowded and the accommodations were pleasant."

Amazing Experience!

5 by Esteban Rodriguez October 30, 2018
"We had a great time on the tour, the organization was superb, bus was comfortable and the whole package was really great. We don't normaly do guided tours because we like to roam and not stick to a schedule, but the setup here was so well planned and the guide so amazing that we easily overlooked this. Having visited in autumn the days are a bit shorter and you don't have that much time to stay at each location as you would probably like to... it's a small price to pay to be able to do so much in just 6 days. A paragraph apart for the amazing tour guide we had. We've done a few other tours with Arctic Adventures and all the guides were really great, but we were super lucky to get Vignir on the 6 day tour, he was simply outstanding! kudos for a great experience, and we will certainly miss your stories Vignir!"

Beyond my expectations

5 by Kheng October 15, 2018
"This tour was truly beyond my expectations. I think it’s the best way to see Iceland. The driving is taken care of by an experienced Icelandic driver who knows the road conditions. It’s packed with all the great places to see and hike. Our guide, Adolfo was excellent. He is very knowledgeable on all things Icelandic. Great sense of humor and like he said “very good at carrying things” - our luggage when help is needed :) It’s a great way to see Iceland as a solo traveler. Only thing that could be better is a bus with bigger seats! It’s a really tight fit for everyone of us with our winter jackets and backpacks. And I’m already just a small built person."

6 days around Iceland couldn't be more perfect.

5 by Anna October 10, 2018
I absolutely love the 6 day trip around Iceland. The tour guide Martin was absolutely amazing and happily shared all his knowledge and stories about Iceland with our group. Everyone will tell you Iceland is incredible but it's actually so much better than you can imagine and no photo does it justice. I never tired of seeing the next waterfall, glacier, lava field, geysir, etc. Definitely do the blue lagoon, it's touristy but it's an experience, take the smaller boat to see the wales it's such an amazing feeling to be a metre away from a humpback whale. I did this in Autumn as a solo traveller and it was perfect. We had snow, sunshine, crisp fresh air and a tiny bit of rain all in one day. Every destination on this tour is 100% worth seeing. I highly recommend. Thank-you so much to my amazing group and tour guide Martin for making it even more special.

Nice tour

5 by Becky Lee October 8, 2018
We had a wonderful 6 days tour in Iceland this September. Nice guide, nice hotels, great places... most important we met a group of nice people!


5 by Arnaz Master September 28, 2018
This tour was by far the best effecient and economical way to see the country of Iceland. My tour guide Linas was amazing - he knew his history, lore, myths and made our entire trip very enjoyable. We were never made to feel like we were in a hurry to get to places, we took out time, enjoyed every stop and no request was too much. Iceland is very expensive so we all really appreciated the supermarket stops as well. The hotels were very nice, great beds and we caught the Northern Lights on Day 4! Highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get the whole Iceland experience!! Loved it!

Wonderful experience in Iceland

5 by Miasnannie September 21, 2018
"I had no idea how beautiful Iceland was. Our tour guide was over the top in making sure we had an awesome experience. Marchin even took us out one night after dinner to see the Northern Lights, not only did they appear, they danced brightly for several minutes. He was a great driver and gave just the right amount of information to educate but not overwhelm. We had a flat tire mid way thru the trip, and inspite if having no tools and having to make several calls to the company for assistance, he handled it all cheerily and made sure we were well taken care of. Given we were in the middle of nowhere as much of Iceland is open space, we appreciated his use of resources and humor. I would definitely do more trips as Iceland is a quiet secret that hasn’t gotten out yet. Unspoiled landscapes, no huge crowds and wonderful food and hospitality."

Joined an amazing tour in Iceland.

4 by Nip September 15, 2018
I am totally love my traveling team in Iceland. My tour guide Norris. He was very funny , responsibility and sense of humor. He told a lot of history about of Iceland. He take the team to sightseeing around of the island. He is well done. I am never forget for my experience and my special team in Iceland. I am highly recommend for this team.

Six-Day Ring Road

5 by Alexander Dawkins September 14, 2018
We booked this tour because we didn't want to bother with renting a car and navigating our entire vacation, and Arctic Adventures is one of the few providers that offers a complete Ring Road tour. There were a few attractions (such as Seljavallalaug and Gudrunarlaug) that we were looking forward to that were not on this tour, but it is impossible to do everything in one trip. The pacing of this tour is perfect: relaxing but also composed of daily activities (glacier hike, whale watching, horse stable exploration, etc). This was our first time to Iceland, and this was the perfect introduction.

Hjalti Björnsson, awesome guide

5 by Yulia September 14, 2018
Hjalti can out-walk, out-pace, run backwards up a steep trail and put us all to shame! His love for Iceland is genuine and infectious. He's ever-patient; generous with his knowledge of the history and landscape. He really made this tour fantastic, and I think my fellow travelers would concur. Thanks very much Hjalti!

6 day tour

4 by Michaelann August 31, 2018
"Really great first exposure to Iceland. I would recommend extreme Iceland. Most of the accommodations were quite good. Few were underwhelming, less than I expected for price. Did have snafu connecting to Blue Lagoon Extension- so it was missed. It is being refunded without issue. The itinerary was fantastic first5 days- fast paced and inspiring. Last day is a little slower. I wish I had added the 7th day. No matter how long you are in Iceland, you will wish for more! Really enjoyed the ability to hike and be outdoors for long stretches- Iceland is unbelievable beautiful! Our guide Hodei was fabulous! Really patient, considerate and helpful. He was knowledgeable, funny and all-around great company. This is great tour- add 7th day if possible, all-around great tour group! Would strongly recommend Extreme Iceland."

Fantastic Trip

5 by Jess August 8, 2018
"We had such a fantastic time on our six day tour, we were surprised with how much we were able to see throughout the tour. Our tour guide was fantastic and was always happy to answer questions and make any adjustments he could to make our trip even more enjoyable. The bus was comfortable and able to easily accommodate us all. I appreciated all the inclusions throughout the trip like the glacier hike and whale watching, this really made the trip for myself and my friend. I would recommend people take notice of the required clothing, you really do need good shoes and water proof clothing as the weather changes in a moments notice and the waterfalls are best enjoyed dry! I could not recommend this trip more highly!"

Excellent tour

5 by Guillaume August 8, 2018
"AMAZING TRIP!! Our guide Hilmar was very knowledgeable, very kind and made sure everyone had an amazing time. The tour was very well organized, the places are splendid and the hotels we stayed in were very comfortable. I definitely recommend this tour! However, we didn’t have enough time to visit sometimes (1 hour to eat + visit isn’t enough), but it was still an awesome experience overall."

Journey in Iceland (July 2018)

4 by L. Chang August 4, 2018
"Overall, we had a good experience in this journey. Thanks to our guide Ólafur, he is a good driver and provides a lot of histories and anecdotes of Iceland during the trip. We had a great time with him. As for other aspects, there are something could be improved. One of our stay, the Lamb Inn Öngulsstadir, the sanitation is not good. There were a bunch of flies in our bedroom because the housekeeper did not close the door properly before we checked in, and the bathroom was also not well cleaned. In addition, the number of spots of waterfalls could be reduced, while focusing on certain spectacular waterfalls. For instance, it took almost 5 km hiking to reach Hengifoss, which I think the view is not worth it. But we would love to have a longer glacier hiking, or there are some other fabulous spots such as Námaskarð, Godafoss, and black beach, which we really wanted to have more time to enjoy. And we love the surprise spot in the horse farm, it would be fantastic if we could have horse riding there. On the other hand, I have to thank Ólafur for providing an additional option to have a hiking at a volcano for those who did not take bath in Myvatn lagoon. Hiking in Icelandic landscape is a wonderful experience in my life. All together, we really enjoyed this tour, and would love to recommend our friends to join this tour in the future!"

An amazing tour

5 by Cristina Cliolo July 29, 2018
The tour was amazing. Our guide did his best in order to explain the history , the way icelandic people lives and show us all the beauty of this magnificent country. I was really delighted and happy. I would highly recommend Extreme Iceland - Artic Adventures.

Memorable experience

A very memorable and very interesting experience,all the attractions are shocking, the tour guide is also very good!

Outstanding and Personal Iceland Experience

5 by Emmanuel July 22, 2018
First and foremost, I got really lucky with the combination of people in my group. We are a collection of advanced travelers, city dwellers, go getters and just a bunch of fun seeking individuals from different parts of the world! The group is so much fun to be with to begin with! Added to this, is our excellent tour guide - we call him - the King! A title that fits him really well! Arnar is very knowledgeable about his own country and very funny! He made the tour so much more special as he arranged various activities for us and is very organized and know Iceland inside out. Our itinerary is packed but enough time to enjoy the sights and do activities. He is the best! We get to meet locals from his hometown and got a glimpse of how Icelandics live - that was cool! It made the tour very unique and personal. Iceland is a very beautiful country with very good people and a colorful past - I am so lucky to have taken this trip at the right time with the right people with good attitude and amazing zest for life and adventure.

Jam packed fabulous tour of beautiful country

"Our tour guide Sindri was amazing. He was knowledgeable about all facets of Iceland. The tour was filled with amazing sights and was well paced. I do think our tour guide Sindri made our tour very special! Thank you, Nancy McIntyre"

Memorable trip

5 by Laura July 19, 2018
I was on Arnar's 6 day tour starting on Thursday, July 5th. I had the best and most memorable trip in my life. Arnar was kind, open, funny, and went above and beyond to teach us about his beautiful country and culture. We went to delicious local restaurants and stopped in places on our journey that had a meaningful and personal connection to his life. All in all we had an insiders perspective into what it means to be Icelandic. I would recommend Arnar to any and everyone making a visit to the island and am so grateful for the lasting memories. I was so sad to leave and look forward to returning! Thank YOU, Arnar, so much.

Best trip

5 by Happy traveler July 18, 2018
"The best trip one could ever wish for! Most of all thanks to our guide Arnar who knows everything about Iceland, can make long road trip entertaining and is just an amazing person! Our small group had so much fun during this trip and we all brought some amazing memories back home. Days are filled with interesting places that everyone dreams to see when they come to Iceland and having delicious dinners in local restaurants only makes it better! You are the best! Look forward for travelling with you guys again in winter!"

Loved the trip

5 by Emmarie July 16, 2018
Our tour was as good as it could possibly get! For starters, Iceland is a beautiful country. Hjalti, our tour guide, did a great job explaining all that we were seeing. He was also very good at rearranging the itinerary to accommodate our requests, within reason, of course. We loved the trip so much, we will be sending our children on it, hopefully next year. Thanks, Hjalti Bjornsson!

Professional and nice guide

5 by Eaco Siu July 11, 2018
Our tour guide DiDi is very professional and nice. He drives safely, good in arrangement and takes good care of us. Of course, the itinerary is perfect. We enjoy the trip very much and have a great time in Iceland. We highly recommend this tour to all people who want to uncover Iceland's nature, beauty and power.

Top notch company- do not hesitate

5 by BARRY July 1, 2018
The tour was spectacular. Very very well run. My tour guide was like having a friend come along. She was very knowledgeable and helpful. The guest houses and hotels were quite nice and adequate. Travelling alone I was a bit apprehensive but thanks to a great group and a wonderful guide it was the best trip of my life. I will return for a winter adventure soon!

Powerful Eperience

5 by WFG June 27, 2018
Breathtaking landscapes, natural wonders, historic sites, and folklore of Iceland all packed into a magnificent 6 day tour on the Ring Road. Glacier walk, whale watching, countless experiences of magnificent vistas, all expertly coordinated by our extraordinary guide “Becca.” Memories that will last a life time!


5 by James Pearce June 27, 2018
"Dear extreme Iceland We had a great time and meet some great people within our group. I thought our tour guide Biggie was excellent and we had a fantastic time - a great way to experience Iceland for the first time. I would recommend your tour to anyone and wish you well in the future. We will be back for some more hiking? Thanks again James"

Great tour

5 by Ankita June 24, 2018
The 6-day tour was the perfect amount of time to drive around Iceland and get a good feel for the country. Our tour guide, Haffi, was very knowledgeable about almost everything, he was a real highlight of the trip! The accommodations in each town were great and it was very handy that they also served breakfast (a good one!). We ended up having a smaller tour group, so had plenty of time to stop often and take photos, as well as spend more than enough time at each 'tourist' spot. If we had more time, we would've loved to do the 7-day tour including the Snaefellnes peninsula.

A wonderful time in Iceland

5 by Barney June 17, 2018
My guide during our 6d5n tour was Gisli. Not sure if this is his real name but lets go with it. Gisli was the best guide i have encountered by far. He went beyond the itinerary and brought us to many more locations to experience/witness the beauty of Iceland. It was a very thorough experience that we had with him. His explanations of the landscape as well as the geographical features were comprehensible and rather detailed. His stamina at maintaining the vibe of the group was impressive and his humorous persona greatly made the trip bearable given the rather long road trips. The breaks given were timely as it didnt make it seem like we were on the roads for too long. And with each break we got something new to see and experience. I will give Gisli a thumb up for his superb field guidance as well as his numerous lame jokes which were funny. Do give him a pat on the shoulder for his outstanding performance. We have been recommending this tour to all our friends and family back home!!!

Trip of Europe

Wonderful grand adventure tour of Iceland

4 by Kah Kay Au June 2, 2018
I have just completed the 7-day complete Iceland adventure tour departing 21 May 2018. Our tour guide cum driver ‘Rekky’ was not only an excellent driver, but also a knowledgeable guide who provided detailed information about the places visited and spoke good English and Portuguese (there was a Brazilian couple on the tour). Day 2 was particularly tiring and hectic having to do the glacier hike followed by the Jökulsárlón glacier and diamond beach. I felt that the latter could have been given more time on day 3 to include a boat ride on the glacier lagoon rather than rushing through on day 2. Day 3’s hike to Hengifoss was particularly strenuous. It was an uphill hike 2 km to the falls and 2 km back and took almost 2 hours to complete. Since there are other waterfalls on the itinerary, perhaps you could skip Hengifoss and give more time to Jökulsárlón. Dettifoss also required a 15-minute hike each way. The 30 minutes given was barely sufficient. At least 45 minutes should have been given. The restaurant at Myvatn Natural Baths was under renovation on the day we went and we couldn’t have any lunch there. We were only given around 45 minutes at the next stop at the lava fields around 3.30 pm for a bowl of soup. Better time management and coordination could have avoided this situation where sightseeing time had to be shared with lunch time. Despite these minor hiccups, we enjoyed the 7-day trip very much although the pace could have been a bit slower and omitting some of the more strenuous hikes eg. Hengifoss. The highlight of the tour must be the whale watching trip at Dalvík. We paid extra for the rhib boat and it was worth every kroner. We managed to see 4 whales within the 2 hour trip at close range. I would recommend this itinerary to anyone who intends to see Iceland within a week. You will need to be of above average fitness to do this tour as it involves quite a bit of hiking over uneven terrain and uphill. Not every client on my tour was able to make it for the glacier hike and the hike to Hengifoss because of physical limitations.

Great way to really see Iceland

5 by Elly Harris March 18, 2018
We went on the tour in early March and were extremely lucky with the weather. Days were mostly blue and sunny (although also cold and windy!) with only one real day of snow/blizzard conditions. Our tour guide Francois was informative, flexible, caring and very accommodating to everyone's needs. After the first day of sightseeing you leave the popular areas and get to enjoy the sights with significantly fewer tourists and crowds, sometimes just the company of your tour group. There is quite a significant amount of time on the road to cover the distances you need to, but Francois broke this up very well with stops to lava fields and photo worthy areas. Days can be quite long with arrival at accomodation only 30 or so minutes before dinner on some days. Breakfast is provided in all hotels (which were all very nice) but lunch is up to you. Francois often stopped at supermarkets to allow us to buy snacks or lunch food and we used this opportunity. Otherwise most days he also stopped for lunch somewhere, it just depends how much you want to spend. Francois chose the restaurant for dinner and booked for the group and there was always a good variety of food for reasonable prices. We stocked up on snacks from Bonus before the tour which worked out well. Overall, we had an amazing trip. We were lucky enough to see 2 humpbacks and the northern lights on one night - although neither of these can be guaranteed! The smaller tour group size was good too.
