Your trip to Iceland begins here

Iceland. It’s like another world—in all the best ways. Everywhere you turn, you’re accosted by awesomely spectacular landscapes—in some cases, more like moonscapes—that are so unusual you won’t find them in any other country. The adventure activities are just as unconventional—from volcano diving and puffin spotting to glacier hiking and geothermal-pool-hopping.

The challenge of planning a vacation here is also unusual. First, Iceland is surprisingly expensive. (It’s cheap to fly there, but once you’re there, prices sting.)  Second, tourism to Iceland has skyrocketed over the past couple of years, causing demand—for accommodations, activities, all-terrain vehicles, glacier adventure guides, etc.—to outpace the supply, creating sell-out conditions and driving prices even higher. Third, the tourism infrastructure is geared to mass-market group package tours.

We can point you to an Iceland specialist who delivers private, custom, WOW trips that keep you away from the tourist crowds and take you to the most thrilling places you could never find or access on your own. But be prepared to spend a minimum of $1,200 per day for two travelers. If that’s doable, click below and complete the questionnaire. Your information is kept private.

Pricing tip:  Self-drive trips start at $1,200 per day for two travelers in low season; trips with a private driver/guide and specialized vehicle start at $2,000 per day for two travelers.
