Iceland Group Tours for Solo Travellers
Travel solo as part of a group tour to Iceland
Why travel solo to Iceland?
Everywhere you turn in Iceland, you’ll be faced with sheer volcanic forces that have shaped one of the most unique landscapes on earth.
Imagine lava fields threaded with glacial rivers and distant volcanic peaks. Mysterious ravines that pave the way for remote hiking routes. Vast tundra that melts to reveal wildflowers in spring and summer and mighty-sounding landmarks, such as the Valley of Thor, shrouded in a fine mist. Iceland’s terrain is as dramatic as it is beautiful, shaped by the constant shifting of tectonic plates.
If it’s off-grid hiking you’re after, summer is the best time to visit. The landscape comes to life with days of endless light under the Midnight Sun, bringing flora and fauna to the valleys.
Winter offers adventure via glacier hiking, snowmobiling and geothermal pools set beneath the Northern Lights.
Whether you’re seeking a magical winter or a summer adventure, travel solo to Iceland for a group tour and you’re in for an outdoor experience like no other.
Top places to visit in Iceland
In Iceland’s capital you can explore the country’s viking history through the National and Saga museums. This is also the spot to explore Icelandic cuisine, moving from restaurant to restaurant to sample a wide range of foods and the country’s famous craft beer scene.
A landscape of otherworldly beauty where shifting tectonic plates have opened up vast valleys, now full of greenery and wildlife. The volcanic terrain also gives rise to bubbling geysers and hot springs.
This region of Iceland is known for its dramatic landscapes. Towards the western tip, the Snæfellsjökull National Park is overlooked by Snæfellsjökull Volcano, which is topped with a glacier. You can also venture through lava fields to reach the black-pebbled Djúpalónssandur Beach.
Dominated by Lake Mývatn, a volcanic lake, this spot in northern Iceland is a great place to relax. A small village called Reykjahlíð provides necessary amenities, while the man-made but naturally heated lagoon provides the soothing waters. Nearby is Hverir, providing hot-springs, boiling mud pots and fumaroles.
