 The Christmas House TTV-04

This 1.5 hour trip was excellent. I was the only person booked on as it was in Autumn but he still took me around. He asked where Id already been around Akureyri and then changed the tour to suit me telling me old folk tales instead of repeating talks about Icelandic history that I had already heard. He was funny and informative and I had a great time. Would definately recommend taking a tour and the Christmas house is a must for anyone of any age! - Ms. Bek Anderson Australia

The Amazing Lake Myvatn TTV-02 - “Best guided tour ever”

We spent two days in Akureyri during our 5 day trip to Iceland. We booked the Amazing Myvatn Tour with The Traveling Viking from the UK and am so glad we did. What a tour, absolutely amazing.!!!! Jon has a vast knowledge of Iceland and the area. He is more than happy to pass on his knowledge,tell stories, answer questions and go out of his way to meet your every need, Within a few minutes you feel like you are traveling with a friend, not a paid guide. This was definitely the best tour we have ever had ( and we have traveled a lot). Do not hesitate in booking a tour with The Traveling Viking, I promise it will be a fantastic experience. We are planing to go back to Iceland and will be in contact with Jon when we do.- Margaret, United Kingdom

4 different day tours in North Iceland 

It's been quite a while since I've had such an action-packed adventure holiday with so many laughs. We travelled as an odd group of 4 friends, one with a 12 year old son and me with my 17 year old daughter. We all had great fun on our 4-day trip. Jon Thor - an informative guide with a quiet sense of humour - had put together a varied programme of excursions for us - ranging from the pre-booked tour around Lake Myvatn (with highlight of the holiday - the Nature Baths) to an impromptu Pingu-style ice fishing expedition organised for us at a day's notice. Thanks to Evelyn for being a great driver in the blizzard and to Siggy B for the igloo experience. Thanks to Iceland for being beautiful. - Ms. Nicola M. England


 Goðafoss & Laufás TTV-03b

My mother and I had booked the "Godafoss & Laufas" Tour in July because it was the only guided tour from Akureyri that takes you to the nearby turfhouse heritage museum in Laufas. So glad the local tourist information in Akureyri had pointed that one out. Jon Thor, our guide, came to pick us up at the hotel and took us to the turf house at Laufas. Jon gave us a guided tour inside the turf house as the museum does not provide any guides. This way we got to understand the exhibit much better, there are so many little details one should know about! Afterwards, we went to see the magnificent Godafoss waterfall where we had all the time in the world to take photos and just be amazed by the beautiful scenery. Back in Akureyri, we were even given a little tour through the town which was not even in the program. I would have to say that this tour was one of the best I had ever taken in the entire world. I would highly recommend "The Traveling Viking" when in Akureyri, and private guided tours in general. -Ms Julie Pm. New York
