Luckily for you, Arctic Adventures has a huge variety of guided tours on offer. We cater for thrill-seekers, nature enthusiasts, climbers and everyone in between.

Below you’ll find a snapshot of our most popular guided tours Iceland has to offer.

Iceland’s Golden Circle

The Golden Circle is a driving route which totals more than 300 km and is home to some of Iceland’s most well-known tourist attractions, including Thingvellir National Park and Gullfoss Waterfall, as well as The Great Geysir.

Arctic Adventures offers a range of tours to The Golden Circle, with different packages available to suit any traveler. On the tour, customers will be picked up in Rekjavík before making the 300 km round journey along the Golden Circle to visit many of Iceland’s most popular attractions.


The central highland region of Iceland is revered by hikers and photographers the world over, with Landmannalaugar being the jewel in its crown. This unique geothermal region is home to caramel-colored peaks, hot springs, lava fields and clear blue lakes and is famed for its picture-perfect views.

Hikers can easily combine their love of the outdoors with an exciting guided tour of Landmannalaugar and its surrounding landscapes. On the tour, you’ll enjoy stunning walks along remote country trails, spectacular views of lush green terrain and multi-colored mountain ranges.

After the trek, hikers can take a dip in a nearby natural hot spring, the perfect way to end the day with some much-needed rest and relaxation!

See The Northern Lights

The Northern Lights are the most elusive of natural phenomenon. Conditions have to be just right for the Arctic’s most beautiful light show to take place, with dark cloudless skies needed to ensure visibility.

Usually, the best time to see the Northern Lights is between September and April, as these are the darkest months and give visitors the best chance of seeing the lights.

Our Northern Lights Tours are the perfect option for anyone who’s on a short trip to Iceland or traveling without a car. Our most popular Northern Lights Explorer Tour leaves Reykjavík at 21:30, before driving off-the-beaten-track to some of the most exclusive Northern Lights viewing spots in Iceland.

Once our driver has parked, you’ll get to wrap up in a blanket and enjoy some hot chocolate or Icelandic Brennivín (if you’re brave enough!)
