It was a bit of a challenge communicating back and forth for the planning aspect, with the time and date differences, but we had a great trip and enjoyed Island a lot, amazing place! Thanks for your help.”
Everything went well, car, nights, whale watching; Only a little more time would have been there and there. But that was also clear given the tight time budget. A nice first impression, we'll be back for sure. Thanks again for the successful compilation of the tour and greetings”

The puffins, popular with many tourists, leave Iceland in August. If you're mainly interested in the aurora borealis, you should choose a later date. You have a good chance of seeing these bizarre light formations from the end of August. The highland routes are normally open from mid-June until the end of September. For further information see the homepage of the Icelandic Road Administration. CLIMATE Thanks to the Gulf Stream, Iceland has a relatively mild climate, though summers can be cooler than you are used to. The weather is very changeable in Iceland, so you should be prepared for everything. Further information, including weather forecasts for the whole country, can be accessed on the homepage of the Icelandic Meteorological Office. CLOTHES AND EQUIPMENT Due to changing weather conditions, we recommend layering, so it's best to come equipped with t-shirts, jumpers, warm trousers and a light, wind- and a waterproof raincoat. Strong and waterproof hiking boots with grip soles are essential. Please note that it is best to break in new shoes well before arrival to avoid blisters. We also recommend packing binoculars, bathing suits and sunglasses. For security reasons, we strongly recommend you take a mobile phone with you when travelling to Iceland. In order to avoid high costs, you can purchase a prepaid card with an Icelandic phone number in any duty-free shop or gas station. FOOD The Icelandic cuisine offers a variety of delicious specialities, e.g. fresh fish, lamb and typical Icelandic products such as skyr (a dairy product). Iceland also suits vegetarians.
