Group Air Charter to Iceland
When to Visit Iceland
Iceland is a good country to visit at any time of year, with advantages and disadvantages to both times of year. Summer is definitely the most popular and when most people visit and the most attractions are open and the best months to drive in Iceland. Visiting Iceland in winter holds the advantage that prices are lower, there are less people visiting and finding accommodation will be easier. It’s also the best time to see the northern lights, which can’t be seen during the summer months. Disadvantages of visiting Iceland in winter are that there will be much less daylight available, driving conditions can be more challenging (we strongly recommend a 4×4 vehicle with studded tires), and some attractions and tours might not be open or running. It will also be colder!
Summer in Iceland brings with it very long days, a bit more warmth, and lush green landscapes. The advantages are long hours of daylight, warmer weather and better driving conditions. More tours and attractions are also going to be open. The disadvantages of visiting Iceland in summer are that prices will be much higher, there will be many more tourists and it can be harder to find accommodation. If you visit during the time of the midnight sun, you might also find it hard to sleep and it is recommend packing an eye mask to block out the light, as hotels don’t often have black out blinds.
Group Tours of Iceland
Consider a multi-day group or private tour in Iceland. These will feature a driver and transport, accommodation and the majority of your meals, and will likely be one of the easiest options for sight-seeing in Iceland. You can let someone else handle all the logistics whilst you focus on just enjoying yourself. Some suggested tours include:
- Five day tour of the golden circle and the south shore, including northern lights viewing, blue lagoon access.
- Volcanoes and Glaciers – covers nearly everything in our itinerary plus the Westman Islands. 5 nights, runs May through September.
- South Iceland Winter Explorer Super Jeep Tour – this is a smaller group tour in a specialized off road vehicle that will get you off the beaten track whilst still visiting the highlights, 4 nights, February – April.
Game of Thrones – Iceland: Beyond the Wall – If you’re visiting Iceland and you are a Game of Thrones fan, then you have a treat in store! Many of the fantasy locations for HBO’s epic TV series were actually filmed in Iceland – in particular the scenes north of the wall featuring snow and ice.
