We family of 5 ,booked the Northen Lights private tour + airport transfers with Sultan when we visited Iceland in Feb 2024.Sultan picked us from Airport during our arrival and have been kind enough to make a stop for us to grab dinner and some grocery before we head to our accomodation.Sultan was always in contact with us providing updates on aurora activities possibility.Lucky us that we got to see some aurora activities during our 2nd night in Iceland. While it is cold weather at night while waiting for the aurora, it is very much worth it. And he even took the photos for us with the aurora too!Sultan is very knowledgable while explaining to us about the aurora and remaining info of Iceland itself.A very warm person while he put the customers need first.Overall we are very satisfied with the service and would recommend their private tour for those prefer a customized travelling journey.

We had an excellent experience with a northern lights tour with Sultan. It was relatively short notice due to weather conditions. He made adjustments to time and did a fantastic job finding a good spot to see the lights and capturing some great pictures. Thank you so much!!! (Wish we'd done more private tours with Sultan. Definitely the way to go.)

Our group of 8 recently took a trip to Iceland with the northern lights being at the top of our list of things to see. We had reservations on 3 different nights with 3 different companies but they were all cancelled due to weather (we heard others did see the lights these nights). We reached out to Sultan at Iceland Paradise Tours as a last resort. He agreed to take us out and was determined to do everything he could to help us see the lights. He was extremely knowledgeable and knew the best locations. He had us wait in the van while he tracked the lights outside, alerting us when they became visible. We had a great time and Sultan took a lot of great pics!!! I’d highly recommend starting with this company!

I had an incredible experience on this Northern Lights tour in Iceland. Not only did I witness the stunning aurora, but I also captured amazing photos with their camera. To top it off, they treated us to delicious homemade hot chocolate and cookies, making the adventure even more memorable. Highly recommended for a magical Northern Lights experience!

We highly recommend Sultan. Booking private tours gave us the flexibility we wanted on our trip. We booked the South Coast tour and Northern Lights tour.Sultan was extremely knowledgeable about all of Iceland. On our last night, the lights came out and Sultan provided us with professional photos of our family at no additional charge. He loves what he does and it shows! We were happy to meet him and so relieved we made the right choice in going with Iceland Paradise Tours!

Just back from 4 days in Reykjavik 🥰 we had a few poor experiences with it some of the bus travel tours, but I highly recommend Sultan Mahmoud- Iceland Paradise Tours! Sincerely regretted booking with greyline instead of this guy, as they cancelled our northern lights excursion due to unfavourable conditions and on the same night this guy found them for his group, after travelling to Iceland with hopes of seeing them I should have paid the little extra, however I did use him for the airport transfers as for 5 people he was cheaper than the buses and much less hassle! He kept in contact the whole time and was waiting in arrivals, fast and easy transfer to the hotel and back and loads of great advice about where to eat and things to do on the way. The south Iceland tour I booked was with bus travel Bustravel Iceland and the bus kept overheating so that caused a few issues including my son almost passing out(amongst others), to avoid disappointment next time I’ll will be booking with Sultan for a super reliable, hassle free trip

I booked a private tour with Sultan the Guide for the South Coast waterfalls and beaches. He turned out to be the best tour guide for the trip, arrived for the pickup on time and explained about the places really well. Also offered drone photography & videography. Highly recommended.

JökulsárlónThe Private Guided experience of Diamond Beach & Jokulsarlon Floating Glacier is a unique opportunity to witness the stunning beauty of Iceland’s glaciers. This experience is led by a knowledgeable guide who will take you to Diamond Beach and Jokulsarlon.
Jökulsárlón, located in the stunningly picturesque country of Iceland, is a glacial lagoon like no other. Nestled amidst a dramatic landscape of towering icebergs and rugged mountains, this natural wonder has become a bucket-list destination for travelers seeking awe-inspiring beauty and a taste of the Arctic wilderness. While visiting Jökulsárlón is a memorable experience on its own, opting for a private guided tour takes the adventure to a whole new level.

Overview

Stretching along Iceland’s South Coast, a breathtaking natural beauty unfolds, adorned with a collection of captivating attractions tracing its scenic shoreline. Among these treasures lies the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, situated roughly 380 km (236.12 miles) from Reykjavik.

This lagoon and its enchanting surroundings are a masterpiece of nature’s artistry. Carved by the potent force of nature, an outlet glacier emerges from Vatnajokull ice cap, Europe’s most voluminous glacier. The outcome is a spellbinding tableau, where black-velvet-textured sand converges with both small and large ice blocks.

Within this journey, adventurers can also immerse themselves in other mesmerizing locations. Vík, a charming seafront town, showcases the iconic Reynisdrangar sea stacks, while the Seljalandsfoss waterfall invites you to venture behind its cascading veil. With numerous stops along the way, this 14-hour day tour guarantees an indelible expedition through Iceland’s most remarkable sites and picturesque landscapes. Renowned and praised, this day tour is an essential experience for any traveler venturing into Iceland’s embrace.

 

Tour Plan

Fjallsárlón Glacier Lagoon

Located in Iceland’s southern region, the Fjallsárlón Glacier Lagoon is a true marvel of nature, found just east of Jökulsárlón. This captivating lagoon owes its existence to the Fjallsjökull glacier, an outlet from Vatnajökull, Europe’s largest glacier. Adorned with dramatic ice formations, crystal-clear waters, and stunning mountain views, the lagoon creates a picturesque landscape. Visitors have the chance to embark on boat rides amidst floating icebergs or savor the breathtaking scenery from the shoreline. While it might not boast the same fame as its neighboring Jökulsárlón, Fjallsárlón remains an undiscovered gem that nature enthusiasts visiting Iceland should not overlook.

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon

Situated in Iceland’s southern region, the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon stands as a captivating geological marvel, leaving an indelible impression of beauty and awe. This lagoon, fed by the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier, glistens with blue ice formations that conjure a picturesque and otherworldly ambiance. Whether taking a boat tour on the lagoon or hiking around the vicinity, visitors are treated to mesmerizing scenery. Revered as one of Iceland’s most iconic and impressive sites, the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon is an essential stop for anyone who cherishes the allure of natural beauty.

Diamond Beach

Black sand beaches are a rare and captivating natural marvel, gracing destinations worldwide like Hawaii and Iceland. Among them, Reynisfjara stands out, nestled on Iceland’s dramatic southern coast. This beach showcases towering basalt columns, crashing waves, and its distinct ebony sand. Strolling along the shore or trekking to Dyrhólaey cliffs unveils breathtaking vistas of the surroundings. A sought-after tourist spot, Reynisfjara delivers an entrancing encounter that’s a must for any nature lover exploring Iceland.

Diamond Beach

Stjórnarfoss waterfall

Nestled in Iceland’s southern region near Kirkjubæjarklaustur village, Stjórnarfoss waterfall remains a hidden treasure awaiting discovery. While not as renowned as some of Iceland’s famed cascades, it promises a tranquil and picturesque escape for those who stray from the well-trodden path. Plummeting into a petite canyon before serenely pooling below, the waterfall exudes a sense of peace. A brief hike leads visitors to this hidden gem, inviting them to relish the untouched natural beauty of this lesser-known marvel. For daring adventurers craving to explore Iceland’s breathtaking natural treasures, Stjórnarfoss deserves a prominent spot on the itinerary.

Vík Village and Reynisdrangar Sea Stacks

In Iceland’s southern realm, the treasures of Vík Village and Reynisdrangar Sea Stacks unfold, standing as captivating natural wonders of unparalleled fame. Reynisdrangar, the majestic basalt sea stacks, rise from the coast of Vík, their origins intertwined with local folklore – trolls transformed to stone at sunrise. Amidst the dramatic allure of the black sand beach and basalt columns, visitors can leisurely explore the picturesque village of Vík and venture into the ethereal surroundings. The fusion of Vík and Reynisdrangar Sea Stacks offers an unparalleled encounter, embodying the unique essence of Iceland’s southern coastal magic.

Soaring impressively to a height exceeding 60 meters, it beckons hikers and nature enthusiasts alike. Seljalandsfoss waterfall offers an unparalleled chance to immerse oneself in the unadulterated majesty and allure of Iceland’s remarkable natural wonders.

Fantastic private tour We went on a private tour with Sultan as our guide. We are a family of 5, with 3 kids (3,8,11). Sultan was AMAZING. He made us feel very relaxed, safe and happy. His vehicle was clean, comfortable and warm. We had wifi and USB cables and chargers in the vehicle as well. We did not feel rushed and he was extremely patient with the kids. I would definitely recommend him for anyone with or without kids. We had enough toilet breaks and the trip was very enjoyable. He also took beautiful pictures of our family and we really appreciate this. His photography skils were amazing. Always a challenge to get good pictures, but he made it so effortless. We wish we could go on more tours with him. Definitely worth every penny.

Sultan , Great guide for our group We had an amazing time in Reykjavík with our guide sultan. We used sultan’s services for several trips and he was always on time and ready to give us any tips he could to make our trip more memorable. I have to give sultan a 5 star rating for our northern lights tours , despite the temperature being a cool -23 degrees he stayed out with us until we got to see the northern dancing in the sky and took a lot of photos for our group, truly a trip to remember.

Fantastic knowledge tour guide Sultan was a passionate guide. He gets very excited about sharing his knowledge of the northern lights. He has he studies the weather map to find a place with low probability of clouds and a high probability of Northern lights. He made sure to get a picture of everyone and send it to them. He instructs you on how to get the best picture with your own phone camera. It was a wonderful experience. We saw lots of lights for about an hour and were allowed to go into the bus for warmth when needed.

BEST EXPERIENCE!! There’s no words to compare the stunning sceneries we’ve seen but we would never have this amazing and more private experience if we didn’t have Sultan as our guide. He’s simply the best! His priority is us (his clients) and he’s very thoughtful and always thinks ways so we can have the best time ever.. and we did! . We did the Golden Circle and the South Coast Tour and everything was just so convenient! He picks us up and drops us off from and to our accomodation every day. He knows when’s the best time to go to places when there’s not much people or tour buses around so we can have better photos. He even made an extra effort and took us to a place that is not part of the usual South Coast Tour and boy, the view there was breathtaking!! He even gave us Icelandic snacks and drinks to try… and I mean, which tour does that?? I can’t recommend Sultan enough. If you’re looking for a more private and wonderful experience in Iceland, book him NOW!

Wonderful Experience! If you want a guide who makes extra effort for you to have the best experience, book him NOW! He brought us to places to hunt the Northen Lights when others are saying it will most likely be cancelled due to the heavy rain. He provided us with the the best hot chocolate and home made cookies made by his wife while we were waiting dor the sky to clear up and eventually, we were able to see it! Though it was hiding beneath the clouds and would’ve been a lot better if it was a clear night sky, we were still glad to be able to faintly see it and made us tick it from our bucket list and he even took nice photographs of us using his professional Camera.

Golden Circle We used Iceland Paradise Tours for our Golden Circle tour. Sultan is a very friendly, professional and knowledgeable guide and went out of his way to ensure we had the best time on our trip to Iceland. Very comfortable 7 seat car (there were only 4 of us). Sultan was always punctual and also he made extra/additional stops if we wanted and there were no time constraints at each location, which you don't get with a big tour group. We also did the South Coast/Diamond Beach Tour and used Sultan for airport transfers.
