Multi-Day tours in Iceland

Iceland Travel Packages for Trips to Iceland

Arctic Adventures offers various multi-day Iceland tours all year round. We have tours ranging from 2-8 days to the best locations all around the country. Choose from our wild Adventure Tours, or hit the trails on one of our awesome Trekking Tours. Most of our Tour Packages include accommodation and pick up in Reykjavik. Browse through our selection to create your dream trip to Iceland!

If you are only staying a day or two we definitely recommend you taking a day tour from Reykjavík. For a longer stay, you have multiple options. Our two and three-day winter tours along the south coast is a good choice. On those tours, you have an excellent chance of catching the dazzling northern lights during the night, after having spent the day exploring the amazing south coast of Iceland. Snæfellsnes peninsula is a fine option for a two-day tour, especially if you have already done some part of the south coast. Snæfellsnes has some outstanding attractions, and our two-day tour also takes you to the renowned Barnafoss and Hraunfossar in the west of Iceland. A five or a four-day combination of the south and west is a good choice for those who want to spend more time in the countryside. If you want to do it all you should have a look at our six-day around Iceland tour. This is a great way to travel the ring road in a small group with some of the best guides in Iceland.

Rooms come with private or shared bathrooms, depending on your booking. All hotels have free Wifi, towels, hairdryers, and a kettle.

A single supplement is available if you want to have your own room, but you’re not required to pay a single supplement. If you’re a single traveler and don’t wish to book a single room, you’ll be roomed with another traveler of the same gender.


Breakfast is included at all the hotels that we stay in during the tour. Meals include a breakfast buffet, with grains, fruit, coffee, tea, etc.

Hotel Borg Breakfast Buffet

Lunch and dinner are not usually included in the price, but your guide will always stop for lunch at a restaurant that has a wide selection to choose from. Dinner is available at each hotel.


Most of our tours pick up from a meeting location in Reykjavik. To reduce our carbon footprint, we don’t pick up from Keflavik International Airport. For more information on how to get from Keflavik to Reykjavik, read our guide on airport transport.

Grayline bus

All of our multi-day tours come with drivers who operate a minibus. This promotes a small-group feel and allows our guides to respond to your travel needs at the drop of a hat.

The Road

We drive an average of around 300 km (186 miles) per day on our multi-day tours. You will be spending approximately 4-5 hours in the car each day. Throughout the tour, we will stop at multiple locations for sightseeing, activities, and of course, bathroom breaks and lunch stops.

We have dozens of tours to fit a wide range of personalities, travel styles, and time constraints.

If this is your first trip to Iceland, we recommend that you try a 2-Day or 3-Day tour to see all the highlights.

Winter multi-day tours offer an excellent opportunity to see the Northern Lights. Accommodations are usually overnight in a country hotel, away from the light pollution of bigger cities. These conditions are perfect for optimal viewing!

If you’re a sucker for the Aurora, dive right into our highlights of Iceland tour or reach for the stars in the Icelandic Highlands.

If you’re looking for a lengthier escapade in the Land of Fire and Ice, try a longer 5- or 6-day tour.

FAQ about Multi-day tours

What month is the best time to go to Iceland?

Iceland, while very different, is equally stunning during both winter and summer. The summer treats you with never-ending days, flocks of Puffins, and whale watching, while the winter flaunts every color of the rainbow during an Aurora show and takes you deep into the ice caves. It’s no secret that summer in Iceland offers a much gentler climate with more opportunities to explore hidden gems. But the holiday season brings a lot of charm and lower prices to the country. The warmest months in Iceland are June, July, and August, while the coldest are from October to April.

Is Iceland expensive to visit?

Being a remote island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean makes Iceland one of the more expensive destinations out there. Since a lot of goods need to be imported from overseas, the prices for the usual items can be higher than average. However, there are ways to save money on your trip if you want to travel around Iceland on a budget. For example, Iceland has some of the cleanest freshwaters in the world that you can access and drink for free. You can also have free access to the myriad of waterfalls and certain geothermal pools scattered around the country.

Do they speak English in Iceland?

Yes. You will find it easy to communicate with Icelanders in the English language.

Do I need a visa to go to Iceland?

It depends on the country you’re from. Iceland is in the Schengen Zone, so if your country is in the Schengen Zone or has an agreement with Schengen countries, such as the USA, you don’t need a visa to travel to Iceland. All citizens from other countries should check the visa requirements with their embassy.

Where should I stay in Iceland?

Iceland is increasingly becoming a popular tourist destination, so you have plenty of accommodation options. Cozy countryside hotels, as well as 4-star city hotels, are scattered all over the country. On top of that, you might enjoy your stay in an authentic guesthouse or go wild and camp in one of the many campsites or huts around the main attractions.

How many days do you need in Iceland?

Even though it’s relatively small, Iceland packs a lot of natural wonders. Whether you’re here for a day or two weeks, you’ll have plenty to explore. To discover the most prominent sights in the country, a 5-6 day trip should suffice. You can choose from a few of our 5-day tours around Iceland or go on our award-winning 6-day adventure.

Are 4 days in Iceland enough?

It depends on what you want to do. Four days might be enough for simple sightseeing, but if you want to explore Iceland’s ice caves, hop on a snowmobile, and go whale watching, you might need a few extra days.

Can you see the Northern Lights from Reykjavik’s city center?

Yes. Reykjavik is one of the very few cities in the world and one of the two capitals where you can see the Northern Lights.

Can you see the Northern Lights from the Blue Lagoon?

Yes, if the sky is clear and the Aurora is strong enough. Join us on a premium Northern Lights and Blue Lagoon adventure.

What is the Golden Circle Tour in Iceland?

Golden Circle is a tourist route in the South of Iceland, covering around 190 mi (300 km). It is located close to Reykjavik in the southern highlands and contains some of the most popular sights in the country. The main stops along the route are Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss Waterfall and Haukadalur Valley with Geysir and Stokkur.

Is the Blue Lagoon on the Golden Circle?

No. Blue Lagoon is located on Reykjanes Peninsula in Southwest Iceland.

Should you book tours in Iceland in advance?

Iceland has become a popular destination for travelers from all over the world. Tours and accommodation tend to get booked up quickly. While there still might be a chance to book a hotel or a tour on the spot, we strongly recommend booking it at least a few months prior to your visit. However, don’t refrain from booking tours when you’re in Iceland, you might be in luck!

How far is it from Keflavik Airport to the Blue Lagoon?

Blue Lagoon is around 20 minutes away from Keflavik International Airport by car. Public bus service is available from Keflavik Airport to Blue Lagoon every hour.

How long does it take to drive the Golden Circle?

Visiting the three main attractions on the Golden Circle won’t take you more than half a day. However, to really experience the beauty of this popular tourist route, you might want to give it a whole day.
