I had a wonderful time. Everything went according to plan. The places we visited were fantastic and the timings and organisation were excellent. The places we stayed were very clean and everybody we met was very friendly and helpful. The warning in the trip notes about the quality of rooms was unfounded, they were no where near as basic as we had been led to believe. Iceland is absolutely beautiful and the scenery and the wildlife is so much better than I had ever imagined. The food at every hotel was excellent and the lunches described as 'packed' in the brochure were in reality a buffet every day with hot drinks.
This one is difficult - so much of it was inspirational. I think my favourite moments were seeing the lagoon and sailing around the icebergs and meeting some very cheeky puffins at the nature reserve. They were very very entertaining with their ludicrous orange feet and confident personalities.
She was amazing- totally knowledgeable, bi linugual, entertaining, patient and really great company, as was the lovely driver. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
Yes- I love eating fish, but if you are not keen on fish, or allegic to it,you need to warn Exodus in advance, as lots of the meals on the tour and also in restaurants are fish based.
I f you have chance, go a couple of days earlier than your official holiday. There is a lot to see and do in Reykavik. we were lucky that our plane arrived in from manchester early in the morning. We managed to walk round the city centre and go whale watching. I wish I had arranged to arrive the day before so I could have done the museums and art galleries as well.
Take your walking boots, the trip is leisurely but the terrain is at times boggy and uneven. You could easily hurt an ankle in trainers.
There isn't much space on the tour bus as the storage shelf above the tourists' heads is very narrow. Don't take a big day sack therefore.
No- it was great thanks to all involved.
This tour is based on a mixture of hotels and simple guesthouses. As with everything in Iceland accommodation is very expensive, so we have tried to choose places with prices that allow us to keep the holiday affordable. The accommodation consists of twin rooms, although single rooms are also available. You may however, be required to share facilities. While we pre-book all accommodation according to the itinerary, as space is limited we may move to alternative accommodation according to availability. In rural areas of Iceland, where hotel accommodation is scarce, there are a number of ‘seasonal hotels’. These may be day schools, boarding schools or social centres that offer good standard tourist accommodation for the summer

The Blue Lagoon in Iceland is not to be missed! This large lake of steaming hot water is perhaps the most supernatural looking body of water on Earth. Descriptions of its waters range everywhere from “the same colour as the new Gatorade drink” to “frosty blue.” Though the latter term may sound good, the water in the lagoon is anything but “frosty.” The temperature in the swimmable area averages about 40C (104F), and the soothing, mineral-rich water is rumoured to have curative powers. You can plaster yourself with the mineral-laden mud, let your shoulders be pummelled by the thundering waterfall, swim and venture into the sauna.

Unfortunately, yes. Costs can be very high and you should be prepared for this. Any dinners not included weill cost about £30-£40 and a beer about £6. The local currency is the krona, and can be easily obtained on arrival. ATMS are availabe in most towns as well.

Iceland is on the northern edge of the temperate zone, meaning it has cool summers. Daytime temperatures in the summer months can be anything from 10° to 20°C, though in 2008 they reached 25°C and could equally drop close to zero. As we are in some mountainous areas, you must be prepared for some days of poor weather with strong winds and rain, but usually the weather is quite pleasant, though cool. There is constant daylight, but not midnight sun, in May, June and July.
