This tour was just fantastic and our group leader Stefan topped it off! The combination of a small group and an enthusiastic, knowledgeable tour guide made for the perfect group tour. And Iceland itself is even more magical than I could have imagined.

This tour was great. Our weather was a bit blizzardy, but seemed to clear up at the right times to still see all of the amazing sites Iceland has to offer. Be sure to budget more than you think you'll need to for food here. Iceland was more expensive than I expected.

I loved my trip to Iceland with Intrepid Travel, my first group travel holiday. My travel group were so nice and fun. Our guide Einar was great. He made sure we were safe and we visited all the sights on the itinerary plus more by seeing a lava show and an ice cave. Our bus had free wifi which was great. The accommodation we stayed at were very nice but did not have any catering facilities. Einar was so knowledgeable on everything about Iceland. I would definitely use Intrepid Travel again for more holidays in the future and would highly recommend them to friends and family. The small sized group was lovely.
