Our goal is to offer an unforgettable adventure to our travelers.
Here is what our guests have to say about us


“My mother, her friend, and I got the pleasure of going out into Iceland’s beautiful nature with Adam. Despite the harsh weather, we had such a great time and Adam was super helpful. He told us all about the different places we visited, and he made us feel very welcome here in Iceland. He made a great effort to give us the best experience possible, and he succeeded. I wholeheartedly recommend going on one of Adam’s tours, as it was probably my most favorite part on my trip to Iceland. I hope to return to Iceland again someday and go on another one of his tours.”

Aubrey V., January 20
“A friendly pick up and a very knowledgeable guide. Was nice to be able to borrow crampons at some icy places, which was an unexpected bonus. Saw the northern lights pretty early on but we still stopped at a couple of Adam’s favourite spots for extra chances. I’d highly recommend using this company. We’ve done other tours on iceland and this was my favourite.”

“My friends and I had the pleasure of exploring Iceland with Adam today and we had a phenomenal time! Adam was kind, personable, and knowledgable. We did the Golden Circle & Northern Lights tour with him, and he was very prompt with pickup! Adam was committed to have us see the lights and we went searching for them for 5 whole hours! We didn`t end up back at our hostel until 1am. We genuinely enjoyed every bit of his endless knowledge and determination to ensure we had the best time.  Also, just a note to those who do go on tour with Adam – Northern Lights are difficult to forecast so please don`t get upset with him in the case that you don`t see them! He`ll ensure you a great time nonetheless.  Thanks Adam! Hope we get to all meet again in the future.
PS He takes awesome photos of you with the lights!”

Destyni, November 19

“We had a great time with Adam, he took the most amazing pictures of us with the auroras on the background. Would totally recomend!”

Jesus G., October 19

“Just wanted to say how great of a tour we had with Adam!! We took the Golden Circle tour on Sept 11, 2019. All the sites were great, but Adam’s knowledge and personal touch made it Awesome!!”

Rob Reed, September 19
“Wonderful tour with friendly and knowledgeable guide! First, the Secret Lagoon in the evening was absolutely amazing! Our guide’s, knowledge of the viewing spots and photography enabled us to not only see the Northern Lights, but also provided a beautiful family photo!”
Jodie, September 19

“We went on a cruise to Reykjavik and booked “Try Iceland Tours” through Trip Advisor, and I am so glad we did!!!! This was the highlight of our ENTIRE cruise! We went to the Lava Caves and Reykjanes Peninsula by super Jeep. Our guide showed us so many caves, mainly ones that were off the beaten path so we were able to be the only ones there, not with the huge cruise tour groups! Ourselves and our two sons (ages 10 and 11) had the BEST time! He also took us hiking on some of the craters, we saw some of the hot springs, and beautiful views over the lakes. He was VERY knowledgable about the landscape and the country. Thank you SO much for such a wonderful experience! We will definitely be using Try Iceland Tours when we return to Iceland!”

Cassy C., August 19

“My niece & I had the best day of the whole vacation thanks to “Try Iceland Tours”.  Such an enjoyable day exploring the Snaefellsnes peninsula.  Adam showed us all the best viewing areas.  We even arrived before the buses which gave us the opportunity to snap photos without the crowds of tourist.  He assisted with taking pictures for us with our cameras.  He made this quite the memorable experience.  My only regret is I had already booked other tours for our trip.  Had I knew about “Try Iceland” prior I would of booked all my tours through them.  That is my plan for the next time we return to Iceland.  Thank you!!!”

Andrea Geanacopoulos, USA - July 19

“We just had a private tour with Adam, and it is definitely the highlight of our whole trip. Adam is a very friendly and patient guild. He took us to see some secret waterfalls which we didn’t know before. They are amazing! This tour is a bit more expensive than group tours, but surely it worths every penny, and the itinerary is the best according to my research.”

Sijin Wu, June 19

“Traveled to Iceland in April, knowing seeing the Northern Lights late in the season would be slim chance at best yet we booked with Try Iceland Tours and THANK GOODNESS we did…If it were not for Adam keeping his eye on the sky & knowing what to look for we would have never experienced the night of a lifetime with the Northern Lights dancing across the sky. Adam is a spectacular host and a phenomenal photographer capturing photos of my hubby & I with the Northern Lights – we will cherish for a lifetime. Book with Adam & Try Iceland Tours you will not be disappointed”

Kristin, May 19

“Our family of four was only in Iceland for a short stopover and wanted to cram in as many beautiful sites as possible, so we booked this tour. We saw all the amazing Golden Circle highlights with our very attentive guide, Adam. However, we hit some brutal weather with whiteout conditions. Felt very safe in the super jeep and with Adam’s confident driving skills. We doubted with the weather being such that we would get lucky enough to see the elusive Northern lights, but Adam found them! We were blown away! Adam can go places in his jeep that the big tour buses can’t get to and is very knowledgeable at using his tracking equipment. Adam showed our son how to capture the lights on his camera and Adam gifted us with awesome family photos. A fantastic tour with a fantastic guide. Thx Adam”

cmail2017, Canada - April 19

“Adam our tour on Friday, March 29, 2019 was awesome. You are the perfect tour guide and we enjoyed our 10 hours exploring Iceland. Thank you so much for providing the car seat for our 5 year old grandson. We appreciated your patience with us as we toured with a small child.
Your explanation of each site we visited was interesting and your instructions very clear. The tour provided just the right timing in stops for Ian to run and enjoy the outdoors as we walked the sites.
The restaurant you selected for our dinner was perfect and the food delicious. It was a nice break which gave us time to get ready for our northern lights experience. We were so happy that we were able to see the natural light show and the photos you took will help us revisit that experience in the future.
Thank you again and best regards for you in the future. We will recommend you to everyone we know who may be visiting Iceland.”

Ellen & Rick S.; Becca, Nick & Ian F., March 19

“You will read many amazing reviews about Adam and his tours on this website – they are all true. He was charming, knowledgeable and accommodating. The Jeep was super comfortable and well equipped. The only advice I can give to any future traveler searching for tour operators is stop looking now, book with tryiceland, and if need be organise your holiday around their tours – you will not be disappointed.”

Joy W., March 19
“Not even sure where to begin! Adam was a wonderful host! My husband and I got lucky and were the only people who booked the tour that day, so we had our own personal excursion with Adam! He is extremely knowledgeable about the area and made us feel comfortable within minutes of the trip (I’m a little socially awkward when meeting new people haha). Adam drove us from place to place, let us explore the sights on our own, and came back just in time to take some awesome photos for us! When the time came for the Northern Lights portion of the evening, Adam drove around the world (it felt) trying his best to find the perfect spot, angle, and view. That night, the Northern Lights were very dull, however that did not stop Adam in his quest! He drove OFF ROAD, to the HIGHEST POINT of the scariest mountain (I’m from DC so this was TOOO cool for me) to get even the slightest glimpse of the lights. He took pictures of us with his high tech camera, in the windiest, coldest night I’ve ever experienced! He tried his best into the wee hours of the night, way past what was scheduled so we could see anything, and we will be forever indebted to him! We had a wonderful time and would recommend Adam to anyone and everyone! He is a great guy, who really wants you to see the beauty of Iceland! Hoping to make it back again someday and will definitely book with Adam again!”

“This company is a hidden gem. Adam was an excellent guide and knew all the great places for great photos. The highlands of Landmannalauger are a really incredible not to be missed location in Iceland if you are there during the Summer, but I bet the other tours are great as well. We will use this company again when we come back to Iceland in the winter time!”
Eric Ethridge, November 18
“Fantastic tour guided by Adam. I highly suggest this as part of your time in Iceland. We saw many popular sites including falls and glaciers and the continental divide and several off the beaten path spots as well as learned interesting facts about the locations. The beauty of this small style tour is that while we had a schedule and itinerary we had lots of flexibility to spend extra time at locations and/or stop as needed. We didn’t think we would catch any glimpse of the Northern Lights due to the weather but Adam did not give up and continued the quest until we had success! Plus he had a lot of cool photog tips and tricks to capture great shots. Well worth the time and the money for those who like organized tours and even for those who don’t!”
Jennifer M., October 18
“Adam is an excellent guide. Though he’s not local but he’s knowledgeable and eager to show us as much as he can. Even when there’s need to deflate or inflate the tires of the jeep, he will stop at places with beautiful scenaries so we won’t waste any time! We enjoyed our trip a lot and have no hesitation in joining his tour again next time when we visit Iceland!”
Betty H., September 18

“We took the Super Jeep tour of the Snaefellsness Peninsula with Adam through Try Iceland Tours and had a fantastic experience. We went off-road, saw lava fields and hiked along the coast! Adam is incredibly knowledgeable and we learned a lot about Icelandic culture, the history of Snaefellsness, and the geology of the region. He was accommodating and polite; there was WiFi in the car and he brought coffee and tea for us on the road. We highly recommend this tour and Adam if you want to see breath taking sights and walk the beautiful coasts of Snaefellsness!”

Seth P., June 18
“Adam picked my husband and I up on time at our hotel in Reykjavik. He had a comfortable 4×4 for our 10hr tour with another couple. We really enjoyed all he had to offer on history of all the areas we toured in the Golden Circle and of Iceland. Such a wonderful small tour, much better than taking a large tour bus. After we toured all the golden circle we had a lovely dinner in the country before heading out in search of the Northern Lights! It was pretty cloudy that night, but Adam was determined to have us see them. We were lucky and got a glimpse! I cannot say enough kind words about him! If he is ever in Colorado, we would love to have him as a guest and show him around!”
Dayna R., March 18
“This was an excellent tour, and Adam was a fantastic and knowledgable guide. We visited a few different sites in the Reykjanes which were beautiful and Adam was more than happy to stop if we saw anything we wanted to check out. He then took us caving at two different sites – his enthusiasm for caving was incredible, and the caves he took us to were amazing. We visited in January when the ice settles into what look like ice sculptures within the caves, which was just stunning. Adam also very kindly took some fantastic photos for us with the ice formations in the background on his own high quality camera at no extra charge. Myself and my partner highly recommend this tour, and believe any of Adam’s tours would be fantastic to experience! :)”
Nicole D., January 18

“PHENOMENAL- MUST BOOK. I read almost every review on Trip Advisor trying to find the best tour group to take for the limited time that we were in Iceland. Let me tell you, Adam and Try Iceland Tours was worth every penny. Adam who owns Try Iceland Tours is absolutely amazing. My friend and I booked the Extended Golden Circle Tour and South Coast and Glacier Lagoon tours with Try Iceland. Adam was able to customize the trip to our needs and we were able to squeeze in so much in the two days that we were together. True, they were long days, but they were so worth it. I’m glad that we did Iceland with a guide as knowledgeable as Adam since he was able to bring us places that my friend and I would have never known about some of the places that we went to visit- we specifically asked to see things that weren’t on the usual route because we wanted to avoid as many people as possible. Adam fulfilled that and more. He’s extremely pleasant and even a professional photographer which was an added bonus! I remember that we had asked to see the Icelandic horses in the wild at the beginning of the day and he remembered the minute we saw some. I also wanted to see the Kerid crater and he took us to see it at midnight when there was no one around. It was a magical experience and if I ever come back to Iceland, I’ll make sure to book him in advance! Thanks for everything, Adam. My friends are all extremely jealous of my pictures (especially the ones that you took!)”

Diane J., August 17

“We booked the Golden Circle tour. Adam is a highly knowledgeable, professional tour guide. But by the end of the tour he seemed more like a family member. Unlike other tours we used in Iceland, he limits the number of guests on the tour. So if you want to stop for any reason along the way or spend more or less time at an attraction you can do so. He takes pride in being a professional and it is obvious he tries to anticipate any and all needs of his guests. He noticed I had a slight limp (was recovering from a minor foot injury) so Adam suggested adjustable walking sticks which he had with him. Forgot to bring a phone charger but he had that also. He offers hot tea or coffee along the way.
Wish we had booked all of our tours with him.”

Ebgate, July 17

“Adam is one of the most enjoyable guide that we had from the various tours that we had in Iceland. We wanted to have a little most customized tour due to traveling with elderly, Adam had plan the day slightly differently so there is limited walking for the elderly. Since we were on the super jeep with big wheels, he would try to take us closest to each viewpoints. The jeep is equipped with walking sticks and portable steps for seniors to get in and out of the high jeep. He has made the off road tour possible for my folks who are in their mid 70s, much appreciated.”

LifestyleTraveler99, June 17

“Incredible 2 days! If you want an intimate tour experience, you want Adam leading the way! Our travel agent booked our tours after providing several choices I settled on the Golden Circle tour with the Secret Lagoon included and the day on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. We had just completed a 2 week coach tour in Great Britain and knew that type of experience was not going to do Iceland justice. We were so right and so happy that we spent the extra money to have this kind of experience. The only bad thing about the trip was the weather, heavy cloudy skies rain and wind. But like Adam said wait 5 minutes and it will change and it did! The sights were spectacular and his expert knowledge of the countryside and of each of the sights was perfect. While not a native you could tell he had a passion for what he did and wanted you to have a memorable experience. We even experienced a rainbow unlike we had ever seen before and Adam had only seen it one other time. His willingness to stop for other photo opportunities was much appreciated. After spending 2 days with Adam I would welcome him into my home.”

Larry S, USA - May 17
“Best Guide ever and memorable experience! Just finished two days of tours with Adam. We did the South Coast and Snaefellsness Peninsula. I cannot say enough about the quality of the tours. Breathtaking scenery aside, Adam’s passion for the country and knowledge of every single detail was astounding. He was attentive, punctual, and polite. He took us to many secret waterfalls and attractions. We have been many many places, but have never experience such well guided and well crafted tours. He is a published author, professional photographer, outdoorsman, and wonderful host. Look no further when doing your bookings!”
Greguri06, - April 17
“After searching the internet for what felt like hours for Northern Light tours, I stumbled across Try Iceland Tours (TIT). My husband and I booked the Secret Lagoon and Northern Lights tour with Try Iceland Tours and I can thoroughly recommend them. I was keen to avoid a 50 seater bus tour for the northern lights and I am so pleased I did. Adam collected us from our hotel and to our surprise we were the only people on the tour! We had over an hour in the Secret Lagoon and TIT’s arrangement with the lagoon means that when it closes at 2030 TIT guests get to stay in after closing! It was a such a surreal experience and one that we’ll remember for a long time. Next came the long search for the Northern Lights and when the forecast dropped from ‘highly likely’ to ‘unlikely’ I thought our luck was out. That said, Adam was a great host and personalised out tour, stopping at a crater and then the national park. He was very knowledgeable and a great tour guide (and photographer!). The Northern Lights eventually made an appearance and it was fantastic to experience them. Don’t look any further, book a tour with Try Iceland Tours and you won’t be disappointed.”
Gourmet_Tastic, - March 17
“My husband and I spent the day with Adam touring the Snaefellsness Penninsula. We were lucky to have ended up having the tour all to ourselves, which was a really nice treat! Adam is a really nice guy with lots of knowledge and love for the country. He was able to provide us with lots of information and plenty of interesting stops along the way. He provided the right mix of attention, sometimes spending time with us and sometimes giving us time to ourselves to just enjoy. He also let us decide just how much time to spend in each location, which takes some getting used to if you’re used to being ordered around (“we have 30 minutes here…”) but is a really nice change. The fact that he provided tea and coffee in the vehicle was a really nice bonus when coming back in from a very windy Icelandic day! Don’t hesitate to book! Thanks again, Adam!”
Katherin13, - March 17

“Oh WOW where to start! The weather that day wasn’t the best, rainy and windy for the better part. Adam was amazing. He knew where we could and couldn’t go. He gave us lots of options. We had a blast! Adam does things no other guide I have had does; 1- He will take you to places that no one knows about but the locals, 2- I gather that no tour is ever the same with him. Adam wants to make sure you are doing, seeing, and experiencing what YOU WANT!!! He is VERY attentive and patient, OH and very knowledgeable! He even write a book about Iceland! If you want a great guide look no further!!! Thanks Adam!- Kaitlin, Aaron, and Judy”

Kaitlin J., USA - February 17
“I’ve signed up with various tours and this was the best I’ve experienced throughout my Iceland trip! Thanks for making this trip an unforgettable one for us Adam!”
Yincheep2015, - February 17
“Amazing Experience in Iceland , Our guide Adam was a great guy . We did the Golden circle tour with northern lights experience in 4*4 jeep . We had a great time . There were 2 couples in the Jeep and our guide Adam customized the trip as per our needs. From exploring lava caves to finding northern lights he made sure we are having fun and enjoying the trip . We will highly recommend this tour and Adam as a guide :)”
Pradyut t., - January 17
“Adam was awesome! He was always trying to show the best landscape spots and very attentive to us.
The weather was cloudy and the northen lights activity was not super high so we could not see it very well. Because of that, he replaced the time we were supposed to hunt for the lights and showed us a secret lagoon (geothermal lagoon) and a lava cave. Both were not in the plans of the tour and it was a fantastic experience.
In the end, we ended up seeing a little bit of the aurora between some stops and Adam was very attentious to show us the lights and take amazing pictures with his professional camera.
The tour was much more exciting and dynamic than I was expecting.
Also, the fact of being in a jeep instead of a bus made it more adventurous. We were 2 couples, basically a private tour, much better than a bus tour with so many people. I definitely recommend Adam and his tour.
Carol & Pedro”
Caroline H, - January 17
“We are two couples who booked a day trip with Adam from Reykjavik to Snaefellsness Peninsula. Adam is a wonderful tour guide. He was informative, fun, and brought us to beautiful locals spots that we would have never found without him. He also had coffee and tea for us during the ride. We would definitely recommend a private tour with Adam. Thanks for the great day Adam!”
LoriJay1231, USA - January 17
“My husband and I chose this afternoon Golden Circle Tour with Northern Lights.
We booked through trip advisor and you can reach Adam to coordinate directly through Tryicelandtours.com
He picked us up at the Hilton Nórdica.

He was very accommodating. It made sense to leave by 11:30 as day light begins at that time and he takes you touring during daylight. You visit the typical areas as listed though you can tailor your stops and make requests.

Since it was raining, Adam offered to take us back to the Nórdica and return at 11 pm to head to the mountains and try to find clearings in the sky. Adam’s jeep is very comfortable. He verifies the sky conditions and searches for an area to park and look for the Northern Lights. Unfortunately, we had a full moon and only a #2 in Aurora activity. Nature was not on our side.
Adam’s jeep had spiked tires and can access off road areas with ease.
We stopped to see the fish heads hanging out to dry on the trip back to Reykjavik.

He is very helpful and willing to visit sites you request.
I highly recommend Adam and his tour company.”

Scubamom1234, USA - December 16
“We had a customized day tour with Adam. Despite the disappointment of not seeing the Northern Lights due to weather conditions, Adam made our day first class with his outstanding knowledge of the area, customising the tour to suit the weather conditions. What a great way to see all the stunning sights from waterfalls to exploding geysers to searching caves. Cannot recommend Try Iceland Tours highly enough and will be returning to chase the Northern Lights.”
Keegan28, UK - December 16

“We took two tours with Adam from Try Iceland tours in November 1016. We did the Snaefellsnes Oeninsula and also one further in-land visiting Gullfoss, the Geysirs and a tiny hot spring. Our guide was very pleasant, friendly, kind and very knowledgable!
We felt safe at all times in the well equipped 4×4 and we were looked after very well indeed! We were out touring for around 12 hours each time and this time seemed only more like 6 or 7 hours!
On our last night whilst driving back to Reykjavik near Selfoss we saw the northern lights and Adam – our guide who is a keen photographer was kind enough to stop and take our picture under the lights with his SLR. I had taken a few photos of them but with my smartphone so they were nowhere near as good as the ones he took for us.
The tours were excellent and I would highly recommend them to anyone – the best way to see Iceland by far. If going this time of year I’d recommend this instead of hiring your own car because I imagine you just wouldn’t be able to get to a lot of these places and driving would have been a bit scary – for me certainly anyway! Ice on roads and windy sometimes.
Both my wife and I are so glad we booked these tours mainly because our guide was so good. It was a pleasure for us to meet Adam who is a very friendly and interesting person and we will definitely keep in touch.”

Gareth T., UK - November 16

“Our tour of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula with Adam and Try Iceland Tours was excellent. The service was first class. During our one week in Iceland, we used three different companies for the tours we selected. Try Iceland is by far superior to all the others. Adam is knowledgeable, flexible and personable. He made our tour the highlight of our trip. On our next trip to Iceland we will be sure to arrange our tours with Adam.”

Arc227, - September 16
“What a fantastic private tour we had. Adam knew his destinations well. The weather was great. Would definitely use his service with our future customize trip. Thanks for a great time.”
Huey L., - August 16
“We went on a customized one day trip combining south coast attractions and landmannalaugar with ‘Try Iceland tours’. The guide, Adam is a knowledgeable and amazing tour guide. He gave us interesting information about the landscapes and attractions. He knows Iceland in and out. Exploring highland in his Super Jeep is itself an experience. Adam was flexible and energetic, he picked us from Reykjavik at 7 am and our adventurous tour ended at 2 am next day. He is a very friendly person and made the whole trip exciting until the end. He took us to the most exotic locations around the south-coast road. Specific little details about the places touching history, geology and his personal experience along the drive was an added ecstasy to the trip.
Hiking in Landmannalagaur around the lava field with a sip of coffee, he totally made us experience the adventure in a different level, which we would have otherwise not known. Finally we relaxed ourself in the wild hot spring lagoon in the downhills of Landmannalagaur, was truly exotic and we thoroughly enjoyed. Most importantly he enjoys what he does. Overall it was one amazing adventurous trip, which wouldn’t have been possible without Adam. A 5 star to his liveliness interest and knowledge of Iceland.”
Kalai S., - July 16
“We only had 1 week in Iceland and tried to avoid tours with big groups. That is how I found “Try Iceland Tours” and had the best day during our trip. Adam picked us up from Reykjavik by super jeep with huge tyres and took us on a great journey through hidden waterfalls, beautiful sceneries, brought us to the Dakota plane wreck and did all he could to make us feel comfortable. He took us to a glacier and made sure we are walking on safe places. He had excellent suggestions of photo opportunities (the idea to take a photo of us on the jeep with Eyjafjallajökull volcano in the background was awesome!!!) and showed us so much more from Iceland that no other tour company would do. Adam showed us the landmarks from different angles and answered all our questions about the country and its people. He also played us Icelandic music which we liked very much – it goes on very well with the beautiful views outside.
I truly recommend “Try Iceland” to everyone who wants to avoid big groups and is searching for a personal attitude and one of a kind experience in Iceland! You will have unforgettable memories!”
Jana T., - June 16
“Where to start? Imagine traveling through the beautiful and harsh landscapes of Iceland with an old friend, listening to awesome music, and photographing every awesome thing you see along the way – that’s what it’s like being on a tour with Adam! Having bad weather and not equipped for harsh environments? Adam’s got you covered with sturdy jackets! One of the tour sites is inaccessible? Adam will seek out a new/secret location to give you a view of something you didn’t even know existed! Driving through Iceland is not an easy task, there are some dangerous conditions and roads that need to be navigated and Adam was always ready to push through safely – with confidence and ease. Highly recommended!”
