Total satisfaction with our holiday. Guesthouse Galtafell conveniently located, welcoming, clean, with excellent breakfasts. Free time in Reykjavik was very interesting. Individual guides superb: Bjorn, his wife, and an invited expert (Magnus) arranged a tour to Hvalfjorour, where my father served with the North Atlantic convoys during 1942-44: An emotional and unforgettable experience.
