TripAdvisor reviews

Amazing 8 day trip around Iceland - We just returned from a fantastic vacation around Iceland, perfectly planned by the folks at Icelandic Farm Holidays (I think they are now changing their name to Hey Iceland). We opted for the cheapest option with shared bathrooms so we could stay in small farms around the country and were not disappointed. Each location was easy to find (be sure you have GPS) and the information about each stop was great. The farm houses varied from 30 room locations to very small places, but they all were clean, had great breakfasts and were situated in eye-popping landscapes. We're ready to go back again. OH, the folks at farm holidays were also quick to answer all questions on email and help us work through all details. We travel a lot and this was one of our best vacations.
