  • "Winfield and I have nothing but the highest praise for Essence of Iceland!  Our daughter’s October 2016 destination wedding on Videy Island  off the coast of Reykjavik was, in a word, magical.  Regina, Kristin and the team executed Olivia’s nuptial vision in spectacular fashion.  In addition, Essence of Island orchestrated sightseeing, a welcome party, hotel bookings, a rehearsal dinner, and numerous other activities over a multi-day period.  The wedding itself was a rather complex black tie event that included a cocktail hour, ceremony, seated dinner, bespoke cocktails, dancing to a live 18-piece band in a heated tent, late night food and a D.J. for 100 guests from 8 different countries on an uninhabited island without a bridge.  Throughout it all, Essence of Iceland was organized, efficient, resourceful and really lovely to work with.  We enthusiastically recommend Essence of Iceland to you!"

  • "Luckily, we have found you, Essence of Iceland and you made our life so easy. I, as the owner of FSLTURKEY was with the group during the entire tour. Just from the beginning till the end, you were so great in understanding the group’s requirements; planning everything- accommodations; transfers; excursions with even the slightest details and ensuring the great operation without any problem. All arrangements were executed with the utmost in professionalism and efficiency. Obviously, this was a first-class, five-star operation. I highly recommend your services to prospective clients and we wouldn't hesitate to work with you again."

  • “It has been 2 days since we got back from Iceland and we are still under the deep impression of your magnificent country - One of the most beautiful places we have ever visited. We would like to thank you for a wonderful family trip & great experience. The detailed professional organization & the excellent guidance of the one and only Hinrik were well noticed. We feel that thank to you we experienced Iceland in a completely different way than we would have by ourselves. Another big thank you for a very special day on Yuval 50th birthday – it has been a wonderful and very meaningful day for us, truly one of these days that we will never forget!”

  • "The 10 well planned days we had in Iceland left every member of the group with a big place for Iceland in our soul! You did a great Job. In the last evening we have made a circle where each person said what was the best/most impressive /significant thing for him/her. There was no one same answer! There were 12 different answers. You made, with a well-planned yet high flexibility to change on the fly, our experience amazing! Thanks again for letting us taste Iceland with all our senses."

    Eyal L. from Israel
