Start and end in Reykjavik, the "Iceland Explorer" tour is a guided natural landmarks sightseeing tour that takes 10 days. You will travel through Reykjavik, Egilsstadir, Stykkishólmur and 5 other destinations in Iceland. "Iceland Explorer" is a small group tour which includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

Iceland is a vast, evocative country, constantly evolving through the sheer power of geological forces. There is a huge amount to see outside of the better-known tourist spots in the south. Geysir, Thingvellir and Gullfoss are understandably popular, and we visit them before continuing to explore areas less frequented by most visitors.

The starkly beautiful Icelandic coastline, the immense glaciers and the beauty of the Eastern Fjords are just some of the treasures that await, to say nothing of the almost indescribable geology of the north.

On this busy itinerary, choose between the frozen landscape of winter, when we see the sun rise and set every day and have the chance to experience the Northern Lights, and the seemingly endless days of summer with 24-hour daylight. It’s no surprise so many blockbusters and TV series are filmed here. As dramatic landscapes go, this takes some beating.
