    Customer Reviews

    Iceland Tours made our trip to Iceland a complete breeze. Everything from the rental car pick up to the location of our desired sites to see/excursions to go on and checking into our hotels was seamless. It gave us wonderful piece of mind as we didn’t have to worry with the stress of planning. I would highly recommend to friends and family.

    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!

    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.

    Iceland Tours did a wonderful job in setting up the trip for me and my daughter. You chose excellent hotels and your routing was excellent. We rented a car which I highly recommend, 4 Wheel Drive is the way to go, was very easy getting around. They call this a once in a lifetime trip but we are coming back. We toured the entire south coast from the Blue Lagoon to the Glacier Lagoon / Ice Beach, it is a long drive but definitely well worth it.

    We did the self driving tour for 8 days and 7 nights! I cannot even describe how beautiful Iceland is, and how much fun we had on this trip. Everything was so organized, having our itinerary with day-to-day suggestions and recommendations. We would never have found and seen half of the beautiful sites we did if we did not book through iceland tours. The accommodations were also amazing, all including a great breakfast (we chose the comfort option). Overall, would definitely recommend booking through iceland tours especially if it is your first time to the country! It really helped us become familiarized with the areas, and we can’t wait to book another Trip back.

    We had such a wonderful experience in Iceland! The people were so friendly and hospitable, the scenery is amazing, and food was exquisite. Iceland Tours was very professional and extremely thorough in their planning. We had a few questions while in Iceland, regarding our excursions; and the staff at Iceland Tours was responsive and helpful. I would recommend Iceland Tours to anyone traveling to the land of fire and ice!

    we took the 8 days self driving tour this winter and everything was perfectly organized, we had no trouble at all, the accommodations and the tours taken were marvelously syncronized, we couldn’t have been happier!!

    We had a wonderful time adventuring Ísland!!! The people are great and the sights are breathtaking. We chose the self driving tour which was a great way to experience the country on our own time table. I would definitely recommend a four wheel drive just incase you get into snow and bringing multiple layers for warmth. Booking through Iceland Tours was a very effortless experience. Iceland Tours were prompt with responses and we had no issues getting to places or having activities booked. The experience as a whole was awesome!

    Just came back from Iceland and just want to thank you for the organization. everything was perfect!

    Good job!
    hope to travel in Iceland soon again

    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.

    Close

    5. When should I book?

    All travel arrangements should be booked at least within 7 days in advance. For packages we strongly recommend you book with a few weeks notice. For Group Tours we recommend you book with a few months’ notice.

    Iceland Tours reserves the right to cancel bookings when services are not available (e.g. when a car rental is not available, when accommodation is unavailable, etc.).

    Our office is open from Monday to Friday, from 09.00 to 17.00, except on bank holidays. In case of emergencies, we offer our customers a 24-hour emergency phone number during their stay.

    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.
