Iceland Escorted Holidays

Make an enquiryArrow

Our escorted holidays enable you to travel as part of a group, sharing your experiences with fellow travellers accompanied by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. Whether you have just a few days or two weeks, a small group tour can help you really get under the skin of Iceland - so you'll return home feeling you've not simply seen it, but really experienced it!

Why choose an escorted tour?

There are a wide range of options to choose from to suit all ages and tastes, whether it's a classic coach tour focusing on Iceland’s scenic highlights, a superjeep safari or a special interest holiday in search of wildlife or the northern lights.

We have teamed up with some of the best local guides, experts and partners - who know Iceland like the back of their hand - to ensure you are well looked after and learn about all the places you visit. As well as seeing Iceland's best known sights, our mission is to take you to equally rewarding areas, on roads less travelled, often overlooked by other tours.

Travelling in a coach or a luxury 4WD vehicle, you can enjoy the informal, relaxed atmosphere in the company of outstanding drivers and guides and the camaraderie of travelling in a small group of like-minded people.

Client testimonial

This trip was without exception, outstanding and this was in part due to the excellence of our guide. He was exceedingly knowledgeable and conveyed to us both cultural information and a deep understanding of the land. His stories and anecdotes enlivened our tour and gave us a clear insight into Iceland and its people. Client quote from Michael & Pat Coxson, Absolute Iceland
