Accommodation is in double, triple or quadruple rooms, depending on the group structure/preferences and local availability.
We aim to get places in double rooms with en-suite bathrooms (although the Icelandic standard requires bathrooms in the hallway) and where this is not possible we let you know in advance.
All accommodation is clean and comfortable.
The usual level of comfort is the equivalent of 3 stars / 3 daisies.
For special requests there are upgrade options in certain areas, with the full cost of the newly chosen location borne by the applicant.
Iceland has a maritime climate and the winters are milder than you'd expect!
Temperatures can range from -5 to +10 degrees, with an average of 2-4 degrees.
The wind is present, but it is possible that snow will only be a joy along the east and north coasts of the island.
We have 12 hours of daylight (the sun rises at 8am and sets at approximately 8pm) so plenty of time to explore!
Thick hiking clothes and rainproof.
Thick, waterproof boots.
Cap and gloves, thick socks, mountain boots or as warm as possible.
You will receive an extensive list of recommendations when booking.
No, you are not obliged or allowed to drive during the tour.
Our drivers do this because road conditions are changeable and driving can sometimes be challenging.
Bear in mind, even as a passenger, that you will have to drive after dark sometimes to be able to spend more time on things that deserve longer breaks.
No, we won't miss the sights!
You can travel to Iceland with your ID card or your passport, both of which must be valid for at least three months after your return to the country.
PLEASE NOTE that any stopovers in the UK can ONLY be made with a passport (due to Brexit)!
Don't forget accident insurance, we recommend the annual Multitravel insurance from Allianz Tiriac.
We will stop at restaurants along the route, and for dinner we already have the locations set (with options).
At lunchtime we may buy supermarket produce and picnic in some special scenic spots.
Iceland is a country with strict controls on the sale of alcohol, so you will only find alcoholic drinks in restaurants, bars and a certain chain of shops. Not in petrol stations or supermarkets.
