Winter fairytale tour for 4×4 Mantra

Fantastic view at Vatnsnes peninsula. 04.03.2019

The Best Travel owners are pretty sure even a bus can enjoy a tour in Iceland! Recently 4×4 Mantra, our baby got the chance to carry a small group of Best of Iceland over one week along the Wintermärchen trip – the name of this tour means winter fairytale – to the North of Iceland. The more North Mantra, the passengers, driver and guide found more snow and more peace.  Of course the rather large tyres on spikes are a big advantage to stop here and there for beautiful photo stops. There where it’s often crowdy like with Hverir behind Namaskard, Mantra stood all alone on the parking lot and later the day it turned to be a kitchen to cook and eat a Swiss Fondue!

Even 4×4 Mantra isn’t the youngest anymore but it hopes to repeat this tour again next winter. Look out to the Best of Iceland website for dates and more impressions of this great trip and the fantastic Northern Lights we got. It’s possible to book this fantastic winter adventure privately for your friends, family and yourself of course. Just send an email to and we get immediately back to you. First comes, first serves!
