About Your Trip

With black volcanic beaches, snow-capped mountains and thundering waterfalls, Iceland needs to be seen to be believed. This five-day adventure trip will give you the opportunity to charge through the wilderness on a snowmobile, traverse glaciers, walk behind waterfalls, and soak in a natural hot spring while watching out for the Northern Lights. Foodies will enjoy trying geothermal baked bread, plus toasting new friends with a shot of the Icelandic spirit, brennivín. You’ll also get to explore the Golden Circle, with three of the most stunning sights in southwest Iceland, by private super jeep. Not bad for a long weekend.

  • Where possible, we use small/ boutique accommodation – this means fewer guests and reduced exposure to other travellers.
  • We require all accommodation providers to share protocols around the extra health and hygiene measures they are taking.
  • Included activities are exclusive to our group wherever possible, to minimise contact with others.
  • Covid-19 negative test results or vaccine certificates may be required. Please check the entry requirements for the destination you are travelling to. Our travel experts can assist you in finding this information.
  • We recommend you confirm all guidance on official government sites and check that you are able to travel with your travel insurance issuer. Your travel insurance may be invalidated if you travel against government advice. Our travel experts can assist you in finding this information.
