Complete Iceland

Tabbed Group

Overview

It’s a pretty big boast to claim a nine-day tour as being “complete,” but just wait until you see what we’ve stuffed into this one. Blending lots of free time to explore the quirky Icelandic capital of Reykjavík — at your own pace, with the very best of the country’s fascinating natural sights — the lava formations of Dimmuborgir, the stunning fjords and glaciers near Höfn, and the hot springs and waterfalls of the Golden Circle, and access to the famous Blue Lagoon, just to name a few — you’ll be stunned at just how much amazingness fits into such a short stretch of time. The only thing missing? You.
