Package Itinerary

Join this round tour that covers the whole Ring Road as well as the magnificent Snæfellsnes peninsula. See the beautiful and ever-changing landscape of Iceland while learning about the country's geology, culture, and history.

Included is accommodation for nine nights with breakfast and dinners for seven nights. On the road, you will stay at countryside farm accommodations, which will give you a chance to interact with the locals and taste traditional Icelandic food such as lamb and fish, and sea animals like Icelandic horses and dogs.

You will travel around Iceland in a small and comfortable mini-van, with a maximum of 12 people in a group. So your experience will be more personal and intimate, and you will feel like you are exploring Iceland independently.

Visit some of Iceland's most beautiful places on this tour like the Golden Circle, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls, Reynisfjara black sand beach, Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, Dettifoss waterfall, Lake Mývatn and Snæfellsnes Peninsula.
