There are not enough stars for this trip. Just do it!! Don't be afraid of the temps. We went in water that was 38 degrees Fahrenheit and only our pointer fingers felt it. The tour of the Golden Circle is fantastic. Sigrun and Val are this tour's owner/operators. They are WONDERFUL! I wish them the greatest success.

This tour made our holiday, the snorkeling and safety tips were very useful and put us at ease. Both the snorkeling guide and helper were fantastic throughout. The lady who drove us around the Golden Circle could not have done anymore for us. We are so thankful to have booked with this company!

BEST DAY I SPENT IN ICELAND!!! I was nervous about snorkeling.. it was like 18 degrees, after all.. but Val and Sigrun were the greatest. The snorkeling was absolutely beautiful, and not too cold once you get used to the water. you will be singing i can't feel may face when I'm with you.. They gave us cocoa and cookies after, so I was quite pleased : After snorkeling, they took us to gullfoss and the geysirs and one more waterfall. All were amazing. Absolutely breathtaking. In the winter, everything is frozen over, but the water is still flowing. Incredible. We also ate some great lunch and learned about sheep, horses, and what it is like to live in Iceland. We got to do this tour with just our group, which was nice. We got to know our guides well, and it felt like going out with friends, instead of piling onto a greyhound with 20 like a herd of sheep. I really appreciated their kindness and fun-ness. I HIGHLY recommend this tour with these guides. Make sure it is Val and Sigrun!!!!
