We went on the "Volcanoes, Glaciers and Northern Lights" tour 30.03.16-3.4.16. We had a wonderful time and everything was seamlessly organised and the itinerary was accepted by the car hire desk, the boat and all the hotels. We saw amazing sights which we will never forget and were welcomed everywhere by the kind and helpful locals. Our only comment would be that on the day 4 driving instructions it should say something like 'retrace your journey on Route 1 west to Selfoss and take the 35 north to Keriõ' but that is a minor gripe!
