Iceland holidays & tours
Fire, ice, air, water: Iceland has a raw, elemental magic that speaks straight to the heart. Starkly beautiful, it’s a land where nature still reigns supreme. Cue eerie lava fields, gurgling hot springs, gushing geysers, lonely moorland and towering volcanoes. All speckled with just a handful of cities and villages, whose roots stretch back to Viking times.
Situated south of the Arctic Circle, our Iceland tours open up this otherworldly land so you can experience its spectacular landscapes and age-old heritage for yourself, in spring, summer, autumn or winter. And depending on which of our Iceland tours departure dates you choose, you’ll encounter its epic geysers, falls and lagoons either in the gauzy light of summer or icy grip of winter, the latter giving you the chance to witness the magical Northern Lights.
Highlights of our Iceland tours
We’ve crafted our tours in Iceland to spotlight its most impressive natural treasures. Immerse yourself in the steamy geothermal Blue Lagoon, its mineral-rich waters sourced from a lava flow. Wow at the wonders that comprise Iceland’s Golden Triangle: the thunderous Golden Waterfall of Gulfoss, the Geysir thermal zone where the Strokkur hot spring sends boiling water high into the sky, and Thingvellir National Park, a lonely expanse where you can view the rift between the North American and Eurasian plates.
Geography aside, our escorted tours of Ireland wouldn’t be complete without time in the capital, Reykjavik. Steeped in Viking history, the world’s most northerly capital fuses a lovely old town with a wide-open harbour and slick modern district. See its highlights, including the colourfully painted old town, Parliament building and City Hall and dip into its energetic nightlife and great restaurants in the evenings. You’ll also get the chance to join a whale-spotting cruise to watch for minke and humpback whales in the sea and venture inland to witness more of the island’s crashing waterfalls and surreal rock formations.
What’s more, our Iceland escorted tours in winter bring the chance to see the spectacular Northern Lights. Join an optional autumn or winter excursion in a hunt for the sparkling Aurora Borealis, which illuminate the sky with dancing veils of green and blue light. Or why not time your tour in Iceland with New Year itself, so you can experience Reykjavik’s magical bonfire and fireworks celebrations?
