Wat een geweldige ervaring. Ben al meerdere keren in IJsland geweest en toch is het Dani gelukt om me mee te nemen naar een sprookjesachtige omgeving die ik nog niet eerder gezien heb. Dani is een hele goede chauffeur en de wagen is zeer comfortabel. Over iedere locatie die we aandeden wist hij iets bijzonders, leuks of interessants te vertellen. Ik kan een trip met Dani absoluut aanraden!

Few days after the trip and I’m still in awe of this beautiful land. So grateful for all the magic, rainbows and colors. I feel deeply inspired by every hidden place that Dani showed us. Almost no people, only the silence of lava fields and roaring waterfalls. Highlands are mystical, dangerous and soothing at the same time. I had a feeling that this would be The Experience, and it was. I felt safe, nourished and completely happy. Also amazed how Dani is passionate about this island, and how he managed to drive for 12 hours non-stop 😂

We had to change our original itinerary due to the poor weather conditions, but that didn’t stop this tour from being one of the best things that I have done. Dani took me and a few other guests to some more hidden, unknown places. Some of the sights were absolutely stunning. Dani was very knowledgable of the places we went to and he shared a lot of stories and information on each place. From the very start Dani was very friendly and welcoming. I enjoyed spending the day in his and a few other guests’ company. Overall I was very satisfied with everything that this tour included. This is definitely one of my favourite parts of my trip. P.S. Thanks for the hotdog, Dani!

The trip was absolutely magical. It's as off-the-beaten-path as you could possibly get--there's not really a planned itinerary, but that's probably the best part about it. Dani has deep knowledge of maybe hundreds of hidden gems in Iceland and he'll take you to wherever are the best ones. Before our trip, Dani was checking the weather 4 days in a row. He made absolutely certain that we were totally safe for our trip and still have a totally unforgettable experience. You'll ride along with a couple of other curious adventurers on a trip of a lifetime, seeing amazing sights and exploring unexplored places. As for me, I'm going to remember lying down on a bed of Icelandic moss with 4 other adventurers in the middle of an inactive volcano, isolated from animals, humans, sound, and worry. Thank you Dani, for such an unforgettable trip!!
