Tours to Iceland
Lying just south of the Arctic Circle, the ‘Land of Fire and Ice’ is known for its otherworldly landscapes: volcanoes and geysers, hot-water springs and glaciers, and soaring, snow-covered mountains.
Discover the Nordic charms of Reykjavik, the world’s most northerly capital city, with its stylish cafes and museums. Alternatively, get back to nature – exploring the great outdoors is what most tours to Iceland are all about, after all. Take a dip in the geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon, explore the pristine wilderness of Skaftafell National Park, admire the awesome natural power of the Gullfoss waterfall or simply gaze up at the mesmerising Northern Lights. Whale watching cruises here are a must, too, with blue, humpback and killer whales regularly frequenting Iceland’s waters.View all holidays to Iceland

The Gulf Stream tempers Iceland’s climate, with mild average temperatures between June and August. However, with its maritime location, Iceland’s weather can be unpredictable. From the end of May to the beginning of August, there are nearly 24 hours of perpetual daylight in Reykjavik; whilst in the northern part of the country the sun barely sets at all.
EHIC/GHIC - Following the UK’s exit from the EU, the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is being replaced by the Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC). UK-issued EHICs are still valid and offer the same cover as GHICs in the EU. Once your EHIC has expired, you’ll be able to replace it with a GHIC and you can apply online. You should beware of unofficial websites that may charge if you apply through them. An EHIC or GHIC is free of charge.
Either card lets you get medically necessary state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes free of charge, however it isn’t a replacement for travel insurance, you should have both before you travel. Some European countries don’t accept either card (including the Channel Islands of Guernsey, Alderney and Sark, Norway, Iceland, and Switzerland). To access up-to-date details for the country you’re visiting, please refer to this information
No visa is needed for British citizens to enter Iceland. A standard 10 year British passport is required for all holidays, which must be valid for at least 6 months beyond your planned date of return travel.
Flights from London to Reykjavik take approximately two hours and 50 minutes.
The world's northernmost capital city is a hallmark of Iceland holidays and our Reykjavik tours take you to all the highlights. Upon entering the centre of Reykjavik, you can’t help but notice the Hallgrimskirkja church, a spiralling expressionist building towering some 74 metres off the ground. Go to the church’s tower viewpoint for panoramic scenery over the city and surrounding coastline. It’s (unsurprisingly) the largest church in Iceland, while the building is said to be inspired by the lava columns at Svartifoss waterfall.
Harpa concert hall is another must-see. This cultural landmark’s design takes inspiration from Iceland’s basalt columns, replacing rocks with the glass panels which make up the building’s façade. Guided tours are available, or you can always stop by the restaurants for a cocktail or a meal.
As cosy as it is quaint, Akureyri is the country’s second-largest settlement, with access to nearby nature spots, alongside a few of its own. Akureyri’s botanical garden is one of the most northerly botanical gardens in the world. It’s home to Icelandic and foreign flora, many of which have overcame scientific odds by surviving – and prospering – on the edge of the Arctic. We spend two nights in Akureyri on our 10-day holidays in Iceland.
It takes an hour and a half to drive from Akureyri to Lake Myvatn, a volcanic lake with various geothermal structures. While the south has the famous Blue Lagoon, northern Iceland has the Myvatn Nature Baths. You can unwind in the baby-blue alkaline lagoon waters while soaking up the gorgeous mountainous surroundings or relax in the indoor steam baths.
We spend two nights in Hella on our five-day tours of Iceland. Just under a hundred kilometres from Reykjavik, a trip here gives you easy access to rural wonders on our Iceland excursions. There’s no shortage of sensational waterfalls in Iceland, but Skogafoss is amongst the best. A whopping 25 metres across, the falls plummet 60 metres before joining the rest of the Skogafoss river below.
You can’t go on a holiday to Iceland and not witness the wrath of one of its geysers. The Great Geysir is arguably one of the world’s most famous, although earthquakes in the late 20th century eventually rendered it dormant. Nonetheless, it’s an emblematic example of Icelandic nature at its finest. Nearby, you’ll see the active Strokkur geyser, which erupts to a height of 10-20 metres every eight minutes or so.
