LES RAIDEURS ONT DIT :

 

 

" Après un voyage découverte 4x4 en Islande avec Camil, que je vous recommande vivement pour ses choix de sites et de visite, pour l'intérêt qu’il porte au pays, pour son respect de la nature et sa bonne humeur, nous sommes revenus enchantés de ce raid lunaire, calme et désertique."

 

"Nous avions choisi la période de juillet, choix judicieux, pas trop d’eau et surtout pas trop de touristes. Encore "chapeau’’ à notre organisateur qui nous a fait rêver pendant 15 jours.’’  

Colette & Michel

         

 

« Nous avons effectué un raid hors des sentiers battus , chaque journée nous a réservé la découverte de sites et de paysages époustouflants.

Un grand merci à Camil pour sa gentillesse et la préparation très sérieuse  du raid qui nous a permis de profiter pleinement du circuit »
