    Customer Reviews

    What an amazing trip!!! We did the Family Vacation for 8 days, though we were 6 friends between the ages of 25 and 30, and it was perfect! Not too much driving in a day, but we got to see everything Iceland has to offer! Every time we thought we couldn’t see anything better than this…the next stop would top it! Geysers, waterfalls, glaciers, calderas, hot springs…everything we did and saw was absolutely perfect, as were the hotels and daily itineraries. I can’t recommend enough!

    Wow! Iceland is an amazing country and Iceland Tours did an amazing job organizing a very affordable 12 Day Self Drive Tour of the island for us. The accommodations were very good, every place with a delicious breakfast and it was very easy navigating the driving tour… our rental car came complete with GPS and wifi!! We loved our trip! Thank-you Island Tours!! We sang your praises to other tourists that we ran into many of them were very much impressed with eh quality and low cost of our tour package!!!

    We had a wonderful trip to Iceland! The scenery was magnificent, the best I have ever seen in my worldwide travels. Iceland Tours did a good job in its selection of hotels and everything went smoothly on our ten day excursion on the Ring Road. My only regret is that we never met a troll, but did feel their presence. I recommend Iceland Tours for those planning a trip to the land of mountains, waterfalls, rivers, glaciers, geysers, volcanoes, horses, sheep, whales, seals and puffins.

    We would like to thank you for a fantastically planned trip…everything from car hire to accommodation went very smoothly. The tours were unforgettable too. We had a magical time and were completely entranced by the unique wonder of Iceland. Thus far, one of our best vacations ever! Thank you for helping create that for us! Iceland tours highly recommended…!

    Very well organised tour with reasonable price. I will highly recommend it

    1. Information about COVID-19 and travelling to Iceland

    Travelling to Iceland

    The Icelandic Directorate of Health announced new information for travellers to Iceland.

    From 18 March, all passengers who can present a valid full vaccination certificate with an approved vaccine against COVID-19 are allowed to enter Iceland without needing to quarantine or undergo border screening for Covid-19.

    Those who are able to submit proof of a prior COVID-19 infection with a PCR test or an antibody test issued by an EEA/EFTA country are also exempt from border screening and quarantine rules.

    You will find a summary of some important questions and answers regarding Covid-19 and travelling to Iceland here: Covid-19 information page.


    2. Driving in Iceland

    Road conditions in Iceland can vary greatly. The “circle road” (road nr. 1) goes all around the island and is nearly asphalted all the way. Smaller roads are often very narrow, steep gravel roads with potholes and sharp bends. The two main F roads crossing the highland and inner highland roads are unpaved tracks. We highly recommend renting a 4 WD if you want to reach these areas. Highland tracks are usually closed until the end of June or beginning of July. Before driving into the highland areas it is necessary to check road and weather conditions, by phoning 1777 or visiting

    The speed limit in built up areas is 50 km/h, on roads outside built up areas 90 km/h and on gravel roads 80 km/h. In Iceland you have to drive with daytime running lights all around the clock.


    3. Can I return the rental car in other location?

    If you pick up your car at the airport in Keflavík, you can also return it downtown Reykjavík without an extra charge. We can book a transfer to the airport with pick up at your hotel in Reykjavík for an extra supplement. You can also pick the car up in Reykjavík and return it at the airport with an extra cost of 5000 ISK

    This island offers an incredible variety of different landscapes and natural phenomena in a relatively small country. Geologically, Iceland is very young and in a very real sense it can be said to be still in the making.
