With so many holiday options to choose from in Iceland, it can be hard to work out what sort of trip would be right for you. Here are five fabulous reasons to try one of our escorted tours…

1. Exploring with ease

When you are on holiday, are you looking for ease? To not have to plan what you should do on each day and worry about how the weather is behaving? Well, if you take a tour, everything is taken care of for you so all you’ll have to worry about is whether you have enough memory on your camera and what wooly hat to wear in your pictures. You can be safe in the knowledge that all arrangements and itinerary adjustments are all in hand.

2. Enjoy the company of a knowledgable guide

If you follow football, you may have noticed that Icelanders are extremely passionate and very proud of their country and their enthusiasm will be obvious from the moment you meet your guide. Guides have complete knowledge of the area that you’re visiting and there is no question they don’t have an answer for! You will finish the tour feeling like an Iceland expert yourself.

3. Make friends for life

The beauty of escorted tours is that you get to spend time with like-minded people who share the same interests as you. It’s great to experience these natural wonders with those who are just as passionate and excited to explore Iceland with all it has to offer.

4. Great value for money

Although you might compare the cost of a self-drive with an escorted tour, remember how much is included in the price. You don’t have to worry about meals, petrol or excursions – all an additional cost on self-drive holidays. Plus, you have the added bonus of a drive and guide to whisk you away on your adventure.

5. You don’t have to drive!

If you’ve yet to drive on the other side of the road and would much prefer to enjoy your surroundings, then an escorted tour could be ideal. Although driving in Iceland is easy, it’s a great treat to jump in your luxury minibus or monster truck and just be glued to the window to watch the wonderful volcanoes and glaciers pass you by.
