Iceland Discovery

Iceland is beautiful and offers so many beautiful experiences. We were fortunate to have a great guide, Siggy, who ensured we saw so much wildlife (2 artic foxes, reindeer, birds), waterfalls, beaches, geysers and provided a lot of details to ensure we had context. Absolutely loved my Iceland tour and visits to 3 thermal pools (Blue lagoon was not on tour but well worth a visit, as was Forest Lagoon - optional extra).

Once in a lifetime trip. Jaw dropping at every corner, worth every penny you spend. The Glacier lagoon and the hike on the glacier were some highlights. Thanks mostly to our trip Leader Thor for his unlimited knowledge and passion for Iceland.

Our guide Thordur was so experienced (he has run 98 Intrepid tours so far!), and was able to make adjustments to the itinerary on the fly to ensure we made the most of the time and weather we had - even adding in extra activities/locations to make up for ones missed due to road closures etc. I can see that every trip to Iceland is unique in this way.

Our tour guide’s commentaries were enriched by his broad knowledge of Iceland’s history, its geography, its plants and animals, its culture, its traditions and its people. We were immersed in the beauty of Iceland and we have fallen in love with this country.

Six Days in Iceland

Duncan · Traveled April 2024
An incredible trip. Gisli was an awesome guide and his knowledge of the area heightened the experience. All the stops were interesting. Only note is it’s really 3.5 days, not 6. Can’t recommend enough
