    Customer Reviews

    Iceland is amazing. Every corner brings something new and the beauty is beyond description. Iceland tours made a first visit amazing and easy. From the car rental to the return, everything went smoothly. We had an eight day tour and found it just enough to see the major sites. But their guide took us from site to site with efficiency and great detail. The hotels all met or exceeded our expectations. It would take a tremendous amount of personal research to put together a trip with this much detail on your own. Their expertise made it easy.

    Our 3-person family visited Iceland 6-20-19 through 6-30-19 with everything arranged through Iceland Tours, including rental car, hotels, etc. for 8-day Ring Road trip around the island. We couldn’t have been happier during our self-guided-with-guidance trip!!

    We came back enthusiastically from our road trip! Iceland is truly a spectacular country! the immensity of the landscapes is incredible! we were very happy with the tour organization: the hotels were excellent and comfortable. the attractions to visit are really many and unfortunately we did not have time to do everything! I hope to come back! I will recommend the site to my friends! thank you so much!

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

    Iceland tours made our self driving trip much easier. We chose the quality accommodations and each hotel was excellent. Each hotel had our reservation and everything ran very well. The recommended itinerary and explanation about each stop was excellent. We followed the itinerary, but also made a few moderations to fit our travel time. Iceland is a beautiful country and Iceland Tours made the trip amazing. Highly recommended this tour company.

    FAQs

    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 www.road.is.

    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. Travel Documents

    The travel documents will be delivered to you once the full payment has been received. You will receive your travel documents: e-tickets, vouchers and itinerary via email. Please print out these documents, as you will need to show them for all services during your visit to Iceland.

    Close

    4. Are the flights included in the package?

    We believe that in times of low cost flights and due to a higher flexibility, it is best for you to book your flight apart from the package with us. Therefore we do not arrange airfare to or from our destinations because it is generally cheaper for you to book your flights directly with the airlines. This also allows you to take advantage of the airlines’ miles or frequent flyer programs. We recommend that you contact the airlines directly for information about flights and bookings. Nevertheless, we are prepared to help you with the airlines that you can check out, depending on your country.

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

    One-way rental from the airport to a Reykjavik City/countryside location or vice versa is available for an extra charge between 5000ISK – 9900ISK depending on location.

    Close

    6. I need to add extra nights to the package

    You can book your package regularly on our internet page and request an extra night in the special request part. We will take care of everything.

    About Iceland

    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.
