INTRODUCING OUR STOP-OVER TOURS

Our Stop-Over Tours offer you the opportunity to discover Iceland as you journey between North America and Europe or between Europe and North America. A Stop-Over Tour is very well worth considering as an inclusion in your broader travel itinerary.

As well as breaking your journey, such a tour allows you to gain a little insight into this most wonderful “nature land”. Volcanic landscapes, icecaps and glaciers, coastal sceneries, waterfalls and rivers will all be encountered (in addition to farmscapes, colourful little townships and traditional churches). But beware, quite possibly, this “Icelandic Taster Tour” will tempt you back to the country in future years; you can never tire of this awesome land!

As a private tour, all of our Stop Over Tours, whilst well planned, tried and tested, of course allow for your own personal scenic/activity preferences to be included, where possible. All such finely detailed itinerary planning can be discussed with you as we tailor make your particular Stop Over Tour.

We presently offer two Stop-Over Tours, a 3 Day and a 5 Day option. However, we can readily format a tour of any duration appropriate to your needs.

Day 1

You will be picked up from Keflavik Airport after your international flight. From the airport we take you to the countryside through the Reykjanes Peninsula with its tectonic plates, much evidence of volcanic activity and high geothermal areas. We visit the hot springs, the bird cliffs and also the Bridge Between the Continents (where you actually walk on a bridge between the North America and Europe continental plates).

For dinner we take you out to one of the most famous local lobster restaurants on the south shore where you can taste the small, local lobster before a good night sleep at your hotel in the south.

Day 2

After a good night’s sleep and a filling, tasty breakfast, we pick you up at your hotel and take you out on our surprise tour. We have created a “flexible” tour depending on weather, ground conditions and visibility to make sure that you get the most out of the day. We always consider our customers’ desired experiences and we put them to the front of our safe and secure itinerary planning.

Some of the destinations we might travel to are:-

  • South Shore with its beautiful waterfalls and black beaches;
  • Þórsmörk;
  • Landmannalaugar;
  • Eyjafjallajökull (the one that erupted in 2010);
  • In and around the Hekla region.

But, on the day, it is nature who decides our destination; no matter where we travel, however, it is always awesome.

Day 3

The last day is a more relaxed day. We drive back to the South West, picking up places on the Reykjanes Peninsula we did not manage to see on your Day 1; the Peninsula is full of many scenic gems. On our way we include a stop at the Blue Lagoon for you to enjoy and relax before heading back to the airport in the afternoon for your onward flight.
