This is our third year with Adaptable Travel and it was another very successful trip. We had an amazing time.

We saw the Northern Lights, the students were so excited and enamoured with Blue Lagoon and all the other amazing tourist sites we went to. The Glacier Hike was tough yet awe inspiring too.

Our itinerary was tight and I would in future ensure there was a little bit less rushing around, we had two pupils who found it a really demanding trip and perhaps in future I will ensure that Gatwick Flights; Geographically these are more suitable for our needs are obtained.

All pupils had a wonderful time as did the staff and would like to thank our amazing tour guide Gudlaug Jonsdottir for her constant support for us when we were there.
