Greetings from Iceland! Stefan Helgi Valsson is a licensed private guide in Iceland and also a professional driver, whose motherland is Reykjavik, Iceland. Stefan offers a wide range of guided tours in Reykjavik: it may be a walking tour, on bicycle, car, van or any other vehicle depending on the number of people in the group and your needs.

If you are interested, you may take a course in the University of Holar, and the University of Iceland.
My goal is to make every scheduled tour equal to the private tour and fill you in with information about Icelandic nature, history, news, things to do and to help you with finding the way to explore this unique country in your way. It will be great if you will become the part of my service. Why Hire a Personal Guide in Reykjavik Iceland?

COMMENTS ABOUT Iceland:
The island country of Iceland is located along the volcanically active Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where the North Atlantic converges with the Arctic Ocean just slightly below the Arctic Circle. Iceland’s interior is covered in mountains and glaciers, with a climate that is generally cold and variable with frequent precipitation, although its coasts are warmed by the Gulf Stream . Lava caves, waterfalls, geysers and hot springs supply an abundance of natural beauty in a landscape that in many places can appear somewhat barren.
There are only about 320,000 people living in Iceland, and over two thirds of them live in Reykjavik, the world’s northernmost capital city. Reykjavik is also the location for many of the country’s tourist attractions, including the city’s most notable landmark, the Perlan. This uniquely designed restaurant rotates under a glass dome perched atop the city’s tallest natural hot water tower. The Perlan viewing platform offers an incredible view of the city and its surroundings.
Viking history is an important part of Icelandic culture, and both the National Museum and the Saga Museum of Reykjavik provide a fascinating glimpse into the history of Iceland. The steeple of the magnificent Hallgrimskirkja Church can be seen from all over the city, and a statue of Lief Ericson stands on the grounds.
Whale watching, shopping, hiking the glaciers and partying in Reykjavik nightclubs are all interesting activities enjoyed by visitors to Iceland.

Hello Latosha, It is very safe to travel in Iceland. We do have an eruption once every four to five years on the average but most of them are quite harmless. The most recent one in Eyjafjallajokull became very famous because the ash from it affected aviation. If it had not been for the news I would not have known about the eruption except for five days when some ash blew our way (Reykjavik is 80 km / 50 miles from the volcano).
