TripAdvisor reviews

Amazing road trip! Icelandic Farm Holidays (as Hey Iceland was known then) was helpful in all the queries we had and all our bookings were done without hassle and our queries were answered no matter how small. Our stay and our trip to Iceland was great. People were friendly. We drove around 2600 Kms and there were hardly any hassles in figuring out our way. Would love to be back in Iceland sometime again!
