Much of our business arises from personal recommendations made by those who have booked a holiday with Iceland Traveller.  We go to great lengths to discuss in detail the kind of trip our clients want and try to include the all-important little extras that make our Icelandic adventures something special. When we send our “welcome home” email to clients, we very much want to learn about their holiday and, if possible, to see some of their best photographs too. We are very proud of our achievements!

Here is some of our feedback:

“We took a deep dive into the geology and landscapes of Iceland, and Iceland Traveller made it possible. For our group of six, the self-drive tour was the way to go. Having the car hire, tours, and lodgings booked for us was a huge help. It was a peak experience for all of us! Our thanks to Julia & Yvonne at Iceland Traveller (UK) for advice & booking of our self-drive tour. It was grand!”

Claire (UK: Girlguiding leader) April 2016

“My first International trip with Girlguiding was a success! Our week in Iceland has been one of the best experiences I’ve ever had!!!”

Jane (UK: North Iceland activity break) April 2016

“Iceland has been somewhere I have always wanted to go to so my expectations were high! I was blown away by the country, its people and the whole experience! Thanks to the Iceland Traveller team!”

Hayley (UK: school party leader) February 2016


“It was extremely good value for money and one of the most enjoyable holidays I have had.  Thank you.”

Chris (UK: budget break) February 2016

“As Iceland novices, we relied on Julia to put together a four-day package and itinerary for February based on our vaguely expressed preferences. She didn’t disappoint. There was just the correct mix of travel, sightseeing, fabulous accommodation and great dining. Couldn’t ask for more. The trip went like clockwork, from being greeted at the airport and taken to the Blue Lagoon, to the hire car delivered to our hotel in Reykjavík, to the restaurant bookings, to the glacier walk … etc. We had a wonderful time and can heartily recommend Iceland and Iceland Traveller. We will definitely be back for more.”

Paul (UK: winter break) February 2016



Elise (UK: touring holiday) February 2016

“Christmas this year was spent in Iceland as a family having a trip of a lifetime – amazing. Our private guide made it so special – she made us feel safe (no mean feat on the icy roads that would be closed in the UK and in an isolated, magical cave in the darkness), comfortable and really special – she did everything to give us the most amazing time, nothing was too much for her and she made it all great fun. We did/saw/experienced everything we expected and more. It was all even better than we could ever have imagined.”

Deborah (UK: Christmas break) December 2015

“A trip of a lifetime! Prior to going, I felt confident about our holiday into the unknown as you were so confident yourself and full of so much information, tips etc. Nothing was too much trouble. Once we were there we had such a brilliant time doing really different activities we’d never tried before and seeing such interesting geographical features in stunning surroundings. The sunrises and sunsets are beautiful.”

Jennifer (UK: self-catering family holiday with private tours) November 2015

“We were pleasantly surprised to find that the full range of accommodation surpassed our expectations.  Thank you!”

Laura (UK: self-drive holiday) November 2015

CRA1015.Group.with.their.lesther.bags.copy“The six of us were welcomed by our guide at the airport.  We had travelled to Iceland from the High Peak area of Derbyshire to see the country and experience arts/craft activities. We were impressed with the itinerary, both the fantastic activities and the quantity of things we did, we did not waste a moment. Heli was a great guide, she is experienced and listened to what we wanted to do, she was also great company.”

Jean (UK: private craft tour) October 2015
“The whole holiday was fantastic – the scenery, the people, the tours.”

Barbara & Andy (UK: celebratory birthday break) September 2015


“We were all happy – from 75 to 18 years old – which is rare! Everything had been organised so efficiently that our trip was easy and meant we could enjoy every minute.”

Beate (UK: family holiday) August 2015

“I liked everything.”

Mike (USA: Reykjavík and self-drive) September 2015

Shirley & party (UK: short break to watch and participate in the Reykjavík marathon) August 2015“Our personal guide was excellent, knowledgeable and looked after us well.”

Geoff & Margaret (UK: two-centre holiday) August 2015


“Bill and I want to express our sincere thanks to you for excellently planning our two trips to Iceland. Your knowledge of that country and its various environs, your consideration of our interests (and non-interests) and your selection of our hotels and tours are nonpareil!”

Shirley (USA: self-drive tour – 2nd visit with Iceland Traveller) June 2015

“We loved Iceland – a beautiful place with really lovely people.  Everything was superbly organised so thank you very much.”

Yvonne (UK: self-drive holiday) April 2015

“Each day seemed to bring a new highlight.”

Tony & Jennifer (UK: part self-drive tour with internal flight) June 2015

“We had a fabulous holiday. Thank you for organising it so well. We loved Iceland and the people. We were warned about a virus that made you addicted to the place and we are!”

Kathryn (UK: winter break) January 2015

“We had a fantastic time in Iceland and we thoroughly enjoyed all the tours you kindly organised for us. What an amazing place, the transfer driver was right – we have caught the Iceland virus and will definitely go back at some point!!”

Amy (UK: short break) October 2014

“I just wanted to email again to say thank you for all your help organising our honeymoon. We arrived at the guesthouse last night. Helen had put a small bottle of Cava in the room for us and was very friendly and helpful. We were commenting this morning about how we could never have found a place like this ourselves – it’s a wonderful area!”

Matthew & Mireia (UK: honeymoon) October 2014

“Every detail was perfect. Thank you so much for your slick organisation and planning. Thorgerður (our guide) took us to some stunning places and educated my sons in a way that I think will help them with their A Level geology no end.”

Jane (UK: mother of teenage sons) October 2014

 IMG_3036_2 Farzi and karen Oct 14“Overall the trip was marvellous…  both Iceland itself and the arrangements.  Thank you.”

Farzi (UK: self-drive tour with diving, dogsledding and sightseeing flight) October 2014“We all had a really good time, I’m glad we were guided around, because we would not have managed to fit in as much in such a short time without your assistance.  Thanks for your commitment to making it work out well once again – you even managed to make the weather hot and sunny while we were there, didn’t expect that!”

Martin (UK: family summer holiday) August 2014

“A well organised trip, a knowledgeable guide and comfortable accommodation. The students really enjoyed it.”

David (UK: school party leader) July 2014

“All organised activities were really great.  Can’t wait to go again and explore some more.”
