A great trip to Iceland over New Year but the highlight was the dinner at The Perlan on New Year's Eve with all the fireworks across Reykjavik. Stephen Scott (booked through Weekend a la carte UK)

What an amazing holiday. We had a fantastic time in Iceland. Everything was perfect. Well organised in every detail. Can't wait to return! Brilliant way to celebrate the New Year. Teresa Wilton, UK

The Perlan was fantastic and the organisation and professionalism of all the staff we encountered was excellent. Fab event and would highly recommend to anyone. (booked through Weekend a la carte UK)

The timing of the flights, car hire and bookings were all spot on. The hotel rooms were a little on the small side at the Foss and Renga but this is not a deal breaker. The Perlan was fantastic and the organisation and professionalism of all the staff we encountered was excellent. We would have liked to stay another night each side of the booking so leaving the 29th and returning on the 5th as there is a lot to pack in and the Blue Lagoon was a bit rushed on the way back. Fab break and would highly recommend to anyone, even if we didn't get to see the Aurora.
