About our Winter Tours

Picture frosty waterfalls, the snowy þingvellir National Park landscape, and icebergs bobbing on a vast lagoon. Or imagine going ice caving, trekking across a glacier, and bathing in hot springs under magical Northern Lights*. Sounds idyllic, doesn’t it?

This, and much more, awaits you on an Iceland winter vacation. Whether you want to come explore Iceland’s wintry countryside at your own pace or experience the highlights of the capital on a city break.

All these Iceland winter tours are tried-and-tested, with routes designed by local experts based in Reykjavík. You can even add thrilling excursions, such as snowmobiling and whale watching, to tailor the package to your taste.

Iceland Tours also offers memorable Northern Lights tours. These are ideal if you want to soak up the striking scenery while having the chance to see the Aurora Borealis.

Book one of our winter holiday packages for a memorable and snowy getaway to the Land of Fire and Ice. You’ll enjoy a range of benefits from a personalized itinerary to quality service from trusted suppliers.

    1. What kind of trips do you offer?

    With Iceland Tours, you can choose from a whole bunch of travel styles. Our most popular are self-drive tours, where you take the wheel of your own rental car. On a road trip, you can stop as often as you like and go wherever your heart takes you.

    If you’d rather skip the driving, you can join a multi-day tour. You’ll stay in Reykjavík and take day trips by bus to different attractions out of town. If you want to take it up a level, you could go for a guided group tour. A dedicated local guide will lead your group around the country. A great way to make new travel buddies!

    Alternatively, you could go for a private guided tour. Your very own driver-guide will use their expert knowledge of Iceland to show you all sorts of hidden gems. 

    At the other end of the scale are camping trips. You get a rental car and camping gear included, and you’ll sleep under the midnight sun. It’s harder to get much closer to nature than that.

    Then there are day trips if you’re already in Iceland and want to add another experience to your itinerary.


    2. Are flights included?

    So you can get the best deal and most flexibility, we don’t include flights with our packages.

    Once you have a rough idea of when you want to travel, you can start searching for flights to Iceland. Of course, if you need help figuring out which airlines fly from your country, we’re happy to point you in the right direction. Simply get in touch if you need advice.

    Thanks to its location in the North Atlantic, Iceland is well served by direct flights from lots of European countries and North America. If you’re coming from further afield, you’ll probably need a connecting flight.


    3. When should I book?

    As a rule of thumb, it’s best to book at least a few weeks before you plan to travel. For availability reasons, we’re unable to book trips with less than 1 week’s notice.

    For the summer season, it’s a good idea to book a few months ahead of when you plan to travel. This is the most popular time of year to visit Iceland and places to stay can be limited in more remote areas.

    If you’re planning to join a guided group tour, we recommend booking a few months in advance. Departures are restricted to certain dates and the most popular ones can get booked up.


    4. Can I customize my package?

    Absolutely! For self-drive trips, you can pick your accommodation type and rental car. You can also add bonus activities in your free time, and extra nights in Reykjavík to the start or end of your trip.

    For multi-day tours, you can pick your accommodation level and add some extra activities such as a trip to the Blue Lagoon (if it’s not already included in your package). Extra nights in Reykjavík are an option here too.

    Other travel styles, like guided group tours, might have more limited customization options due to the nature of the trip. You’ll be able to see all the options available to you at checkout.

    Good to know: We can’t guarantee stays at specific hotels or guesthouses, but we’ll always make sure that you get the standard of accommodation that you pay for. Read more about accommodation types.

    If you’d like to make further customizations than those that are available to you at checkout, get in touch and we’d be happy to help. The additional charge for this service is €150. Just so you know, it might not be possible to accommodate further customizations during the summer season. See our terms and conditions for full details.


    5. Can I add extra nights to my package?

    For sure, we want you to squeeze as much as you can into your trip! No matter what kind of package you book, you can add extra nights to the start or end of your trip at checkout.


    6. Can I book a trip for my family?

    Yes, Iceland is a great destination for a family adventure!

    If you’re a family of 4 traveling together, you’ll need to book at least 2 rooms. If there are more of you, you might need to book 3 rooms or more. In this case, the booking can take a bit of extra time to confirm.


    7. Is Iceland safe to visit?

    Yes! Iceland is one of the safest countries on Earth. Thanks to its extremely low crime rate and excellent healthcare system, you can rest assured that you don’t need to worry about your safety in Iceland.

    Around the country, you’ll see children left to their own devices to happily play outside or walk to school by themselves. It’s so safe that babies are even left in prams outside cafés, so don’t be shocked if you see this. Iceland is a fantastic place for kids to run wild, totally carefree!

    You might have heard about natural disasters like volcanic eruptions or earthquakes. Iceland has well tested warning and evacuation systems in place. And if a volcano just so happens to go off on your trip, it’s likely to be in an uninhabited area. In fact, some of them are great to go and visit.

    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.
