Iceland – a land of many contrasts.  It is home to the largest glacier in Europe, yet, it is also home to some of the most active volcanoes in the world.  For this reason, it is also known as the Land of Fire and Ice.  With a land mass of 103,000 sqm and a population of 300,000,  Iceland is also one of the most sparsely populated country in Europe, with huge parts of the country largely uninhabited.

Here’s our itinerary with some photos and links to our reviews for our trip. We have completed our full review. 🙂

  1. hello! love ur blog post on the northern lights! looks amazing!
    may i know how much did ya spent for the entire trip? as i wanna save up and love to catch the northern lights soon!!

  2. Hi loveyunnan,

    Thanks for visiting.

    It is a large group (around 45) and we travelled on a comfortable coach.

    The mix is quite diverse, with travelers from USA, Europe, Australia and Asia.

    Overall, it was an enjoyable trip and we never really have to wait for coach departure at every stop as the group was quite punctual to return to the coach by the designated time.

    Hope the above helps! 🙂

  3. thanks for sharing your itinerary! The natural beauty of Iceland looks incredible.
    Just wondering if the lack of daylight was much of a problem during your trip…since you traveled in late November. Did it get dark really quickly? thnx

  4. Hi, the trip looks really wonderful!
    i have also booked a trip to iceland this coming November but unsure which tour operator to choose. What is yours and how do you find them? 🙂

  5. Hi!
    I am planning on travelling to Iceland this November but am allergic to seafood. In your trip there, were other meat products readily available? Any comments about the food in general would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you very much!

  6. Hi! Love your blog entries! Am also planing a trip to Iceland to catch the northern lights.

    Will like to enquire what were the clothings suitable, and where did you get them?

    Thanks!

  7. Hi kianhai,

    Thanks! Great you like our blog entries!

    You may want to read our post on the tips for visiting Iceland.
    We got our clothing mainly from Uniqlo and our boots from Timberland.

    Hope the above helps! 🙂

    Have a nice trip ahead!

  8. Hi! Thanks for sharing your amazing itinerary 🙂
    Do you recommend travelling to North Iceland? (Akureyri, Myvatn etc.)
    Thanks!

  9. @Tommy Green

    Thanks for your reply! Are there any activities in Iceland not included in your tour that you could recommend me? 🙂

    I heard the Silfra Snorkelling and horse riding are good…I'm thinking of going to Iceland this November so any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I've read your tips and recommendations abt food and things to buy they were really helpful 🙂

  10. Hi,

    We did lava tubing with Extreme Iceland in addition to the tour with GJ Travel.

    You may want to check out the Extreme Iceland website for more activities!

    Have a great trip ahead! 🙂

  11. Hi! According to GJ travel's website, there is a Northern Lights Academy programme during the toue. I don't think you mentioned this in your itinerary (or maybe i just overlooked it) so I was wondering what you felt about it, if you did have such a programme…was it interesting? Thanks 🙂

  12. Hi,

    Thanks for visiting.

    The Northern Lights academy programme is basically an informal session every evening where the guide will tell you more about the northern lights and also include sharing how to set your camera settings to take the photos.

    The guide would also guide you on where's a good spot to see northern lights (if it appears) at each accommodation. 🙂

  13. Hi,
    you mention that this was a 8 days 7 night tour, i counted 25 Nov to 30 Nov seems to be 6 nights tour instead of 7 nights? The first night stay at the hotel was not part of the tour?

  14. Hi,

    You are right.
    Thanks for highlighting.

    The tour starts on 24 Nov where we board the flybus from the airport to the hotel.
    However, it was a free and easy day on the 8D7N tour package and we added Blue Lagoon to the package ourselves as we wanted to experience the lagoon in the daytime. 🙂

  15. Hi
    Thanks for the clarification 🙂
    Is the first night 24 Nov stay at the hotel part of the tour package? or you have to pay additonal one night stay on 24 Nov?

  16. Hi,

    Thanks for visiting again!

    If you notice, we actually check in to the hotel on 24 Nov early morning (1am), so that's considered checking in on 23 Nov (which we paid one night and not part of the tour package).

    24 Nov to 25 Nov hotel is included in the tour package.

    Hope the above clarifies! 🙂

  17. Hihi! May I know if you went in a large or small group for your 8D7N Northern Lights Exploration package tour with Guomundur Jonasson (GJ) Travel? Thank you!

  18. Hi, Thanks for visiting.

    It was quite a large group with around 40 pax in a big tourist bus.
    However, it was a cooperative group and we never had to wait for long for all to get up on the bus at various stops. 🙂

  19. Hi, Thanks for visiting!

    We actually got our package indirectly through another travel agency (Extreme Iceland).

    Can't remember exactly how we paid though… I believe we paid through credit card…

  20. Hi – guess it depends.

    We took one more day before the package tour to experience Blue Lagoon in the daytime, another day to do lava tubing, finally a F & E day to walk around Reykjavik.
