About Our Iceland Multi-Day Guided Tours
Much like our Day Tours & Activities, our Multi-Day tours are excursions from our hand-picked travel partners; people and companies who’ve been in the travel business for years and maintained an excellent reputation.
Unlike Day Tours & Activities, however, Multi-Day Guided Tours include overnight stays at accommodations in the countryside. That way, you can go further and explore more of our beautiful country.
These excursions are perfect for those who already have their accommodations in the city booked but want to explore the countryside and, perhaps, have an adventure or two accompanied by a trained guide.
Multi-Day Guided Tours offer a cut-rate option for the budget-savvy traveller. Those looking for a completely hassle-free experience — complete with airport transfer and all accommodations — should check out our Small-Group Tours.
Iceland Multi-Day Tours in Winter
In the winter, Iceland is a gorgeous place, from black sand beaches covered in snow to waterfalls surrounded by icicles. However, driving on the snowy, Icelandic roads in the winter can often prove somewhat challenging. With a Guided Multi-Day Tour, your professional driver will navigate the roads while you sit back in the warm and comfortable minibus and relax.
Another benefit of visiting Iceland in the winter is the chance to see the spectacular Northern Lights. On a Guided Multi-Day Tour, your guide will let you know each night if conditions are good enough for hunting the beautiful Auroras.
Iceland Multi-Day Tours in Summer
Travelling in Iceland in the summer means longer days under the bright rays of the Midnight Sun. You’ll have the opportunity to see more and explore longer.
More daylight hours paired with milder weather means that you’ll have more activity options during your summer visit to Iceland. Though you can enjoy some activities such as glacier hiking any time of the year, other excursions are exclusive to the warmer months.
Multi-Day Guided Tours will take you into Iceland’s countryside where you can experience these summertime adventures accompanied by a professional guide. You can explore icebergs up close on a boat tour at Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, see puffins on your whale watching excursion or visit remote places such as Dettifoss Waterfall or the Highlands.
Frequently asked questions
For Packages, such as Small-Group Tours and Private Tours, we will arrange and book all transfers and accommodation before you arrive in Iceland. This includes airport transfers and hotels in both Reykjavík City and around the country. A Multi-Day Guided Tour, however, only includes accommodation and transportation during the tour itself. This means that you will have to arrange your own hotel in the city as well as airport transfer.
Multi-Day Guided Tours are perfect for those who have already booked accommodation in the city but are looking for something to do in the countryside. It’s a great option for financial-savvy travellers who like to arrange their own accommodation at budget guesthouses, hostels or Airbnbs in Reykjavík.
Included in a Multi-Day Tour is pick up and drop-off from Reykjavík and overnight accommodations during the tour. You will also be guided by an English-speaking professional guide who will be on hand to answer any and all questions you may have during your tour. Some Multi-Day Tours include additional excursions such as glacier hiking or ice caving in the price while others offer them for an additional fee.
For most Multi-Day Tours, you will be staying in a country hotel with a private bathroom. Breakfast is usually included as well. Please read the “Included” section for each tour for more information about the accommodations.
If the provider cancels your multi-day tour, we will do our very best to try to re-schedule. If that’s not possible, we will try to find the best alternative for your excursion, and if no solution is found, you will get a full refund. Please note that in those rare occasions no solution is found, Traveo is under no obligation to provide you with replacement accommodations for the overnight stays, but we are more than happy to help you find new lodgings if you’d like. Just send us an email, and we’ll do our best to help you out!
Though you can book a Multi-Day Tour on the day you arrive, it is not recommended. If your flight is delayed, you risk the chance of missing your tour. Also, note that you will not be picked up at Keflavík International Airport for your Multi-Day Tour but from Reykjavík City, roughly a 45-minute drive away. Since airport transfers are not included in Multi-Day Tours, this means you will have to make your way to the city yourself in good time for the pick-up time for your tour.
Each tour is different and how long you spend in the car depends on that and the season you visit. On average, however, you will travel around 300 km (186 miles) per day on your Multi-Day Tour. This means that you will spend roughly 4-5 hours in the car each day, though not continuously. There will be plenty of stops along the way for sightseeing, activities, bathroom breaks, and lunch stops.
There is limited space on the minibus for all your luggage on a Multi-Day Tour. Most tours allow you to take one 24” suitcase with you. You can often store your luggage at your hotel in Reykjavík or with your tour provider, sometimes for an extra fee. You can find more detailed information about luggage capacity and storage in the “Good to Know” section of each tour.
Only breakfast after your overnight stay is included on Multi-Day Tours; other meals are not. You are free to bring your own snacks on tour, but your driver will also stop near shops and restaurants while on the road.
Solo travellers who wish to spend the night in a private bedroom will need to pay a single supplement fee.
For Multi-Day Tours with activities, such as glacier hiking, snorkelling, or ice caving, all safety equipment needed for those excursions will be provided. However, hiking boots are not considered part of the safety gear so you will have to bring those yourself. Often, however, these can be rented during the booking process.
