Discover our incredible tours to Iceland
Lying just south of the Arctic Circle, the ‘Land of Fire and Ice’ is known for its otherworldly landscapes, its volcanoes and geysers, hot-water springs, glaciers and snow-covered mountains. On Iceland tours and holidays, you can discover the Nordic charms of Reykjavik, the world’s most northerly capital city – its stylish cafes and museums the highlight of many city breaks.
Alternatively, get back to nature with a relaxing 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 Northern Lights. Whale watching cruises here are a must, too, with blue, humpback and killer whales regularly frequenting Iceland’s dramatic waters.
Whether you’re travelling for wrathful geysers, sweeping glaciers or cultured city hotspots, an Iceland tour ensures no stone is left unturned.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.
When travelling to a country within Europe you can apply for a free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) before leaving the UK. This entitles you to state provided medical treatment but is not a substitute for travel insurance.
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.
Whether you visit in winter for the Northern Lights, or in summer for whale watching trips, our tours to Iceland deliver a sumptuous taste of this incredible island’s greatest pulls. Take a trip to a glacier one day, and the next, you can join an escorted group trip of the iconic Golden Circle in Iceland, including Thingvellir National Park – the original home to one of the world’s oldest parliaments, the Althing.Reykjavik
Iceland’s capital is a hallmark of all tours around the country and our Reykjavik tours take you to all the highlights.Hallgrimskirkja church
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
This cultural landmark’s design takes inspiration from Iceland’s basalt columns, albeit replacing rocks with the glass panels which make up the building’s façade. It regularly hosts music festivals such as Iceland Airwaves, Dark Music Days and Reykjavik Jazz Festival, as well as doubling up as a conference centre. Guided tours are available, or you can always stop by the restaurants for a cocktail or a meal, or get some souvenirs from the gift shop.Akureyri
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.Lake Myvatn
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.Akureyri Botanical Garden
Among the most northerly botanical gardens in the world, this Akureyri institution is top of many visitors’ to-do lists on holidays here. 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. Aside from plant life, the gardens are home to a few fountains and a café for when you’re wanting to replenish yourself.Hella
Just under a hundred kilometres from Reykjavik, a trip to Hella gives you easy access to rural wonders on our Iceland excursions.Skogafoss waterfall
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. It’s just as picturesque from the base as it is from Iceland’s Ring Road, where onlookers can still get an idea of the sheer magnitude of the waterfall.The Great Geysir
You can’t go on an Iceland holiday and not witness the wrath of one of its geysers. This particular geyser 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.
