The storm canceled this tour but they switched us to the Golden Circle tour and I left a good review for that tour.

We are sorry you were unable to go on this tour due to the storm. The safety of our guests and staff is our number one priority. As we don't want to disappoint our guests we offered the option to switch to another tour. So we are very saddened to see this one star review of our services.

Great driver. The weather was a bit unsettling: ice and snow. However, safety is their prime importance. Took us to some amazing vistas and even more sights not on itinerary. A full day of adventure and comfort. The Snaefellsnes Peninsula is absolutely beautiful. Don't hesitate to go on this tour!

Early pick up for this trip, so careful planning if you are out late for the northern lights tours the night before! Long coach trip but lots of stop offs to take a walk and take photos. Places to go to the toilet and get food as well. Lovely tour but it would probably have been better if not all covered in snow/ waterfalls frozen etc. Icy roads a bit scary but excellent driving skills from the coach driver! Very friendly driver, good commentary and information. Another amazing day, well recommend it.
