We are back and had a really good time. Thank you for all your help. All the hotels upgraded us apart from Grand Hotel. People were all very helpful and friendly. The car was good too. We saw all the highlights but cancelled whale watching as wanted another day at the Blue lagoon instead. Also, went up the beautiful mountain near Hotel Budir on a snow tractor!
We will contact you again for a second trip.
