Iceland Tours & Trips
A land created and captivated by the power of nature. A tour of Iceland will take your breath away.
Iceland tops bucket lists. It's not hard to see why. Thundering waterfalls, rumbling volcanoes, lively geysers, and inviting hot springs. It's like nowhere else on Earth. And it's worlds away from home...
Known as the Land of Fire and Ice, Iceland is a country of contrasts and natural wonder. To the north is the famed Golden Circle, made up of the country's three main attractions: Gulfoss, 'the Golden Falls', Geysir Hot Spring Area, and UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park - a wonderland of geothermal and hydro activity. To the south lies quiet fishing villages, black lava beaches, glaciers, and the volcano Eyjafjallajokull.
Whether you're looking to visit Iceland for a long weekend or a week-long escape, we've got a great selection of group tours to choose from. Go in search of the Northern Lights, explore the snow-covered wilderness and discover glacier fields on one of our winter trips or consider visiting Iceland during the summer months for rainbow-speckled waterfalls, whale-watching, and long, sunny days.
You'll be in the safe hands of our expert, English-speaking guides. They know Iceland like nobody else. And they'll show you the best there is to see on our tours. From the main attractions to the best hidden gems.
We offer a range of Iceland tour packages departing in the winter and the summer. So whether you dream of chasing the famous Aurora Borealis across the night sky, whale-watching off the coast or admiring picturesque Godafoss waterfall swelled with summer snow melt, one of these Iceland trips is sure to be the one for you!

Our tour guide was absolutely fantastic. So much knowledge about the history of the country, telling us the old fable’s, packing in as much as she could for our trip. Eyrun was very friendly and you could see she wanted us to enjoy this trip. Eyrun even
Made sure we saw the northern lights, she is also a very good driver!
There is not one bad word I can find about this trip, it’s probably the best trip my friend and I have had to date.
Eyrun is an asset make sure she knows that.”
Holiday was absolutely great if you didn't need a special diet. I am coeliac and can't eat gluten, (it makes me very ill), however I had a hard time in 2 of the hotels which really did n't cater for me at all. One of the hotels had nothing to give me for my breakfast and had to send out for some gluten free bread, unfortunately it arrived too late for me to enjoy it. It was very hit and miss regarding food for the whole holiday and the Guide didn't appreciate how important it was for me and failed to offer us any help with the Hotels. Excluding that the holiday was amazing, scenery is different from anything we have experienced before.The Group got on very well and the minibus was comfortable. Itinerary covered just about all you neded to see in Iceland. So I would recommend this holiday but only if you do not suffer from Coleiac disease. Great Tour if you don't need a special diet. The whole experience was good, efficient and I got exactly what I was expecting and wanted. ”
The Land of Northern Lights tour was a triumph!
My tour of Southern Iceland was absolutely wonderful. The venues chosen, the timing allotted at each venue and the variety of things to experience was nearly perfect. Our guide, "Thor", was smart, amusing, full of history and anecdotal stories as well as being incredibly hospitable and helpful. This small group experience was my first, but not my last thanks to On the Go.”
Frequently asked questions about our Iceland group tours
Will I see the Northern Lights on your Iceland tours?
We offer a number of tours specially designed around this bucket list wish, spending a night or more in a remote location away from city lights to increase our chances of seeing them.
Seeing the phenomenon also known as the Aurora Borealis is not something we can ever guarantee on our tours due to local weather conditions but there's a good chance you will see them over the course of your winter tour. You can find out more with our helpful guide.
Do your Iceland holidays include a visit to the Blue Lagoon?
If you've got your heart set on a tour that doesn't already include the Blue Lagoon then don't worry. It can be booked locally and you can go before or after your tour. We can arrange pre / post tour accommodation if required.
In 2021, the brand new Sky Lagoon opened in Reykjavik, which is set to rival the Blue Lagoon. Our South Iceland Summer Explorer tour includes a visit here.
Can I go whale watching in Iceland?
From Reykjavik's Old Harbour you can join a whale-watching boat excursion off Iceland's south coast, spending roughly three hours out on the water in search of humpback whales, minke whales, killer whales, and other species of whale and dolphin in their natural habitat. The excursions are available year-round, though the summer months (mid-June to August) are the best time to go whale watching in Iceland. You can also book puffin-watching excursions too!
Please note that a three-hour whale-watching cruise is included on our South Iceland Summer Explorer tour, and it is an optional activity on Iceland Circle. Keep your eyes peeled!
What is the Golden Circle and do you include it on your tours in Iceland?
You'll get to see all three of these sites on the majority of our Iceland tours, escorted by a knowledgeable guide. Check out our dedicated guide to the Golden Circle if you would like to know more about these impressive sites.
How big are your tour groups and what is the age of your travellers?
You'll be travelling with people from English-speaking countries around the world so you can expect an eclectic mix of personalities and ages, ranging from those in their 20s to those over 60.
Children over the age of 12 years are welcome on our Iceland tours so the group may include a few teenagers.
What is the standard of hotels on your trips?
If you prefer a higher standard of accommodation then our 'comfort' upgrade is just the ticket on Land of the Northern Lights.
What sort of transport do you use on your tours?
On tours with smaller group sizes, we will use minibusses instead, offering a similar level of comfort.
When is the best time to travel to Iceland?
But if you're in Iceland to see waterfalls swelled with snowmelt, to relax in the Blue Lagoon, and to stroll along the black sand of the Reykjanes Peninsula on the south coast, then the longer days of sunlight between June and August are best.

Can I drink the tap water in Iceland?
So you can avoid environmentally harmful bottled water and drink straight from the taps!
Do you offer pre and post-tour accommodation?
On these tours, we strongly recommend booking pre or post-tour accommodation in Reykjavik. This will help to ensure that the tour can depart on time, and that you can have a hassle-free arrival and departure without having to clock-watch.
We are happy to assist you with booking additional accommodation. Get in touch with our Reservations team if you'd like to discuss your travel plans.

The Best of Iceland
Iceland: where leisurely walks become glacial hikes. Where rivers and streams become thundering falls. And where skies become stages for the elusive Northern Lights - and you'll have the best seats. If it's your first trip to Iceland, then these are the country's top destinations and natural wonders!
Creative people, colourful architecture, and a cool, contemporary soul. Reykjavik is a city of true Nordic style. Some of our Iceland tours include sightseeing here, whilst on some, you can take in the sights at your own pace.
Iceland's most famous waterfall, plummeting from the lower edges of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano. But the best view is from behind. Stand underneath the falls and watch the water follow its course. Nearby Skogafoss is just as impressive.
The Blue Lagoon
The place to recharge against a rugged natural backdrop. The lagoon's geothermal waters are rich in minerals - lending themselves to the lagoon's rejuvenating properties and beautiful blue shade. Many of our tours in Iceland include a visit.
The Northern Lights
The dancing glow of this magical phenomenon captivates star-gazers and thrill-seekers alike. You'll need to stray from the city lights to see them - head to Hella or Borganes for the best view. Luckily our Iceland tours do just that!
In the less-visited northeast of Iceland, Lake Myvatn is something of a hidden gem. A shallow volcanic lake, it is also home to lava fields, bubbling mud pools and natural geothermal springs, perfect for a dip!
Geysir Geothermal Area
Nothing screams the power of nature like spouting geysers sending sprays of water shooting into the air. And at the Geysir Geothermal Field, you can see Strokkur, a geyser that violently erupts every 10 minutes!
