There are plural tour operators in Iceland, so picking the right one for your trip is certainly significant . On our trips to Iceland we’ve primarily used Iceland Travel. They’re a major tour operator in the country who have been operating tours of Iceland for decades (since 1937!) – meaning they really know what they are doing. We’re always happy to suggested them. Guided tours to iceland.
If you can’t find what you are looking for at Iceland Travel, another alternative is the Guide to Iceland portal. Private guided tours in iceland.These guys don’t really run their own tours, instead, they are a portal for other companies to list their tours. When people book and take a tour they can permission a review, and it’s always worth checking tour reviews before booking as apparently these can vary depending on the operator.
We’ve primarily used Iceland Travel on our trips in Iceland, for both short tours and multi-day trips, and they remain our favourite tour company in Iceland. We have used Guide to Iceland once, on a day trip from Reykjavik, primarily because Iceland Travel didn’t have the tour date we needed.
Our experiences have been positive with both companies, so we propose you find the tour that works for you from one of those two options. We also list a few tours from other companies above as well, including National Geographic, but the majority are from these two.
When to Visit Iceland?
As you’ll have noticed throughout the post, few guided tours in Iceland run year round. This is because Iceland is a country that varies dramatically between the seasons.
In the winter months, usually from around December through to April, there is far less daylight available. Weather conditions and snow also mean roads can be closed, and the highland roads in special are shut completely.
The benefits at this time of year though are that you have the chance to see the Northern Lights, and there are fewer visitors.
If you are visiting Iceland in winter, check out our guide to what to pack for Iceland in winter to get prepared. We also propose reading our guide to how to photograph the northern lights to be sure you get great photos! Private guided tours in iceland.
