Featuring independent self-drives, small group escorted tours, northern lights breaks, hiking holidays, whale watching, and much more, we know Iceland inside out!

Why Choose Discover the World for your Iceland holiday?

Our flexible itineraries have been carefully researched and fine-tuned over 30 years to include the places we know our clients will enjoy. Today we send more people to Iceland than any other specialist tour operator and are proud of our knowledge and expertise. We also operate the only direct flight from the UK to East Iceland opening up a convenient gateway to a lesser-visited region of Iceland as well as easy access to favourites in the north and south east. All of our Iceland Travel Specialists regularly visit the country to stay in the wide selection of accommodation we offer and to experience the range of excursions that complement our holidays. If you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for on our website, or perhaps want a bit of help deciding, speak to our Travel Specialists. And if we don’t have an itinerary to suit then we’ll happily tailor make one to suit your individual requirements.

About Iceland

Iceland never ceases to amaze - the mouth-watering scenery is an adventure in itself, with volcanoes, glaciers, hot springs, geysers, mountains and stunning waterfalls offering a new view around every corner. There is no part of Iceland that should be left unexplored!

Its modern and quirky capital city has much to offer visitors from the imaginatively presented museums and galleries to a wide range of exciting dining options, but Iceland's real 'wow' factor lies beyond Reykjavik. Even just 30 minutes outside of the city you'll be immersed in some truly awe-inspiring sights, as natural wonders abound.

From the spectacular glacial lagoon to the epic East Fjords, the diverse curiosities of Lake Myvatn, to the inspirational Snaefellsnes Pensinsula, Iceland is easy to tour around either on a fly drive or on a small group tour. Follow the complete circuit around route 1 or focus your time in the regions you’d most like to explore.

We offer holidays that cover the length and breadth of the country and can help you choose the best itinerary to suit your individual requirements. Whether you're looking to visit for just three or four nights, or have time for a two week adventure, Iceland has something for everyone.

And no trip to this fascinating country would be complete without a visit to the Blue Lagoon and an exploration of the famous Golden Circle.
