FAQs about Iceland solo trips

You might well be wondering if it’s practical or safe to visit Iceland on your own. Here we’ve rounded up answers to some of the most common questions on Iceland tours for solo travelers.

Iceland is often described as the perfect solo travel destination, but what makes it so? Of course, it’s packed full of epic natural attractions and otherworldly landscapes.

But you’ll also find that it’s a stress-free destination for solo travelers. This is thanks to the low crime rate and the fact that most Icelanders speak English. You have little reason to worry about pickpockets or being bothered in the street: Iceland is a peaceful place.

Absolutely, gender equality and respect for women are core values to Icelanders. In fact, the World Economic Forum has ranked Iceland as the best country for gender equality every year since 2009.

This, combined with the country’s low crime rate, make Iceland a destination where women can feel confident traveling alone. Another aspect of Icelandic culture contributing to this is a deep respect for personal space.

It’s also good to know that Iceland has expansive mobile data and phone coverage. This means it’s easy to contact friends and family whenever you like.

When it comes to solo travel in Iceland, you can choose from a few different ways to get around.

The most popular option is a self-drive trip. On a road trip package, you’ll have the freedom to go where you want, whenever you want. And at Iceland Tours, we provide you with a detailed itinerary, so you’ll never be short on ideas.

If you’d rather not drive, you could go on a multi-day trip from Reykjavík. You’ll be based in the city with opportunities to join a different guided tour by bus every day. This is ideal if you want to travel solo, but not alone.

Guided group trips are another fantastic way to travel if you’re going solo. On this kind of tour, you’ll journey around Iceland with the same group of like-minded travelers. You could end up making a new friend for life!

The Land of Fire and Ice is a playground full of experiences that offer your either relaxation or adventure. Travel to Iceland and you could:

You can visit Iceland at any time of year, and you’ll get a completely different experience each time. There’s plenty of things to do in summer and winter, but what seasonal differences can you expect?

Summer in Iceland brings seemingly infinite hours of light. This means you’ll have more time each day to explore the country. You’ll also get to experience Iceland in full bloom, with the bonus of milder temperatures.

All attractions will be open as well, including the highlands region. If visiting Iceland’s interior is must for you, then this is the time to go.

By contrast, winter nights in Iceland are much longer. They make the perfect backdrop for chasing the Northern Lights, which aren’t visible by day. Travel in winter and you’ll also have a better chance of seeing the country dusted in snow.

Of course, you can add to this magic by visiting at Christmas or New Year. Otherwise, if you'd like to explore the country with fewer people around, visit Iceland in the fall or spring.

All of the tour packages here feature local transport, places to stay, and a detailed itinerary. Plus, breakfast is always included in packages from Iceland Tours too.

On a self-drive tour, you’ll get a rental car with unlimited mileage and unlimited Wi-Fi. For your accommodation, you can choose from 3 levels: Budget, Comfort, or Quality. Read more about accommodation in Iceland.

As well as accommodation, multi-day tours also include activities – like ice caving, sightseeing, or a hot spring trip. Transport for these excursions is by bus from Reykjavík.

If you choose a guided group tour, you can expect to travel in the same bus for the length of your trip. You’ll follow a preset itinerary and stay at specific hotels along with the rest of your group.

Using our website, it’s easy for you to tailor your trip. For example, you can pick your preferred type of rental car for a self-drive tour. And for both self-drive and multi-day tours, you can choose your accommodation category.

You can extend any package by adding extra days in Reykjavík at the start or end of your trip. Fill these days with excursions and activities to get even more out of your Iceland vacation.

Guided group tours have fixed departure dates, but for all other types of tour, you can choose any start date you like.

First, browse these solo tours in Iceland until you find one you like. You can filter by interest and travel style to help narrow down your options.

Once you’ve found the vacation package for you, pick your preferred travel date and continue to checkout.

It’s here that you can extend your trip and add optional activities. Finally, secure your trip by paying a 5% deposit. You’ll receive a confirmation email from us, and we’ll get in touch closer to your travel dates to finalize everything.

It’s best to hold off on booking your flights until you’ve received confirmation of your package booking with Iceland Tours. You might want to search for flights beforehand though, so you can get an idea of what’s available.

There are daily flights to Iceland from major airports across Europe and North America, with flights several times a week from smaller cities.

When traveling by yourself, it’s a good idea to bring everything you’ll need to feel safe and comfortable on your trip. Here’s a suggested packing list for solo travelers:

  • Robust pair of walking boots or shoes
  • Warm, waterproof jacket
  • Extra thermal layers
  • Sweater or fleece
  • Scarf, gloves, and wooly hat
  • Swimwear and travel towel, for hot springs
