Iceland Group Tours for Solo Travelers
Travel solo as part of a group tour to Iceland
Why travel solo to Iceland?
Everywhere you turn while traveling solo in Iceland, you’ll be awed by 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.
This national park and key stop on the Golden Circle route throws on shifting tectonic plates and vast valleys full of greenery, bubbling geysers and thermal 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, topped with a glacier. You can also venture through lava fields to reach the black-stained Djúpalónssandur Beach.
Dominated by the volcanic lake of Mývatn, this region in northern Iceland is a great place to relax. A small village called Reykjahlíð offers home comforts, while the naturally heated lagoon serves up soothing waters. Nearby is Hverir, home to hot springs, boiling mud pots and fumaroles.
