We had a rental car with a blown tire; drove two hours to Hofn where we hoped to buy a replacement. As it happens, Brando runs one of the two tire shops in Hofn. He was so very helpful and friendly. After searching diligently in his shop and finding he did not have the tire we needed, he called friends... More

We booked Eagle Air's "Splendid Simplicity" tour, which included a flight from the domestic airport over to Hofn, a visit to Jokulsarlon (the glacier lagoon) and a visit to a glacier. I guess Eagle contracts out to Vatnajokull Travel, and our guide, Sindri, was at the airport when we arrived and squired us around for the day. There were a... More

We cannot speak highly enough of the service that Brando and his company gave. We were met at the airport and taken on a tour round Hofn before going to our hotel. The next day Brado took us to the glacier. He was so helpful, friendly and accommodating - nothing was too much trouble (even unscheduled stops to photo reindeer!... More

Godbrandur and his team were very helpful, I was taken on a "guided tour" of the region, then hired a car to explore some more. It was a real treat to be given some "insider knowledge" of the area, and I would return to Hofn again just to experience this warm helpful experience. well done to everyone

I phoned Vatnajokull Travel because I was trying to book a Northern Lights excursion from Reykjavik, but was not succeeding through the website. I didn't realise it at the time, but this is booked through Eagle Air's booking system, which, in turn, only accepts bookings if 2 or more travellers book. Brando answered the phone, and while I was ultimately... More

We did the activity adventure flying in from Reykjavik. Brando handled every detail and took really good care of us. We had a great time and highly recommend vatnajokull travel and especially Brando.

I happened to be in great need for transportation from Hofn and contacted Gudbrandur (a.k.a Brando) at Vatnajokull Travel. He set me up with a car for a very reasonable price and the transaction was an absolute delight. I give Vatnajokull Travel (and Mr Brando) my very, very best recommendation! Should you be in any need for a rental car,... More

Counting them as one, Vatnajokull and Jokulsarlon are now in my top two favorite places in Iceland--and I love ALL of Iceland! I had to change my round-trip Reykjavik-Hofn booking because of a conflict and Brando didn't hesitate or impose any penalties. I was so surprised when I was met at Hofn airport and found out I was the only... More

When we arrived in Hofn, it quickly became apparent that we had booked an unsuitable tour, as the booking agent (Nordic visitor) had provided little information, and we felt misled by the suitability of the tour for families. Vatnajokull staff quickly responded to our concerns, and were at all times considerate and helpful, trying to rearrange our day. When travelling... More

If you come to iceland, you have to visit Vatnajokull Region or Vatna Glacier (Fly to Hofn from Reykjavik). I had a very great time at Hofn especially at Vatnajokull area. I take so many picture, so I will always remember how exotic is Vatnajokull Area. Thanks to Mr. Brando from Vatnajokull travel, a very nice man and He knows... More
