My husband and I travel a lot but always on our own, so we were initially wary of taking a guided tour, albeit private. We consider ourselves fortunate that we planned our trip with En Route. Oli and Kristen from the get go were extremely responsive and thoughtful, organized our trip very well. Iceland is breathtaking and a photographer's paradise no doubt but we feel our trip became even more special because of traveling with Oli. Oli is patience personified and helped us discover and get to places that we could not have known about on our own. I definitely look forward to taking more trips with him!

The people at Iceland En Route have their game on... run a top shelf operation, addressing every detail to ensure that your trip with them goes off without even the smallest hiccup...

Our driver and tour guide was Oli who was simply outstanding, knowledgeable, a photographer himself and sharing insight into certain approaches photographing some of the beautiful sites we visited. We booked 3 tours in all with En Route, including an overnight tour, and each tour was better than the previous one. As with anything in life, you get what you pay for... If you want a personalized and meaningful experience, this is the place to book your tours through. On the backend, Kristin handled all the bookings, arrangements, airport transfers and was even kind enough to recommend and arrange dinner reservations for us for every night of our stay in Reykjavik ... flawlessly... Thank your Kristin and Oli and the entire En Route team... Just an outstanding job and service!!! If you're going to Reykjavik, these are the people you want to work with!

We were initially going to use another guide, but he took too long to respond to emails and questions before the trip. Oli and his wife Kristin earned our confidence by responding swiftly, patiently, and thoroughly to every question we asked before we paid our deposit. Oli is an outstanding photographer who knows all the great places and the best times of day to visit. He did his very best to accommodate every request and answer every question about the country that a tourist dare to ask. 🙂 Because of him, I got more outstanding photos from our 4 days there than we ever would have obtained on our own. (And he also suggested several follow-up one-day trips for the days we could drive on our own.) As a small business owner myself, I understand the importance of great customer service and outstanding communication skills. Oli provides both and is outstanding at what he does. We liked him so much that we may even accompany him on a trip to Bolivia he's leading in 2018!

I am a photographer and I wanted a photo-guide to show me around. Being a photographer and mentor myself, I always spot capable and knowledgable people in the field soon. Oli Haukur of Enroute was exceptional in helping me and my clients achieve great photographic results. Oli was not just hard working and very professional, he was also extreme fun and caring. He is surely recommended for anyone to visit Iceland on a photographic holiday.

I'm an experienced photographer and have taken (and conducted) photo tours in a variety of locations. Oli's tour was exceptional. He is wonderful company as well as a wonderful, caring guide (and outstanding photographer). In 5 1/2 days, we traveled through the entire country, seeing locations I would not have found on my own in lighting conditions I would not have predicted. With Oli, I was also able to learn much about the country, its society and economy. This means that, in addition to having many images, I will have some familiarity with the place where they were taken. The trip logistics and accomodations were expertly organized by Kristin, even though I decided to go to Iceland at pretty much the last minute. I left our trip thinking that I had seen everything, but wanting to come back for another tour...with En Route.

Oli has it all. He s experienced. He knows "that" unique timing and point of view on every location. knows hidden locations. He has a solid knowledge about the art of photography, Brings crystal clear technical explanations and keeps at every moment an active sense of humor. The vehicle is perfect and allowed us to reach all the difficult places. After 5 days travelling with Oli and my wife at the south and east coast of Iceland, we enjoyed the country, learned tips and skills to improve as photographers, had the chance to get in touch with the islandic sensitivity and way of living and specially, we laughed a lot. Absolutely recommended. !!!
