TripAdvisor reviews

Great trip! Our accommodations throughout the trip were very clean and all the staff at each location were friendly and helpful. Hey Iceland made the logistics part of the trip easy, so that we could focus more on exploring the sights of Iceland in between each new accommodation spot. Overall, we highly recommend Hey Iceland when traveling to the country. They know their stuff and you'll have a great time knowing that you're in good hands with Hey Iceland!
