Iceland can be an expensive destination in many ways, from museum entrance fees to visiting a cafe, but especially in terms of eating out. Your leader will be able to advise on how to save money. In remote areas the only option for dinner will be at the guesthouse we are staying at. Please stock up on food at a supermarket prior to arrival if you would like to opt out eating at the guesthouse's restaurant.
The destinations visited on this trip can be cold throughout the year, especially at the start and end of the season and at night. Please bring appropriate clothing for adverse weather conditions. There may be the rare occasion where your leader has to alter the itinerary and activities due to the weather. In this case an alternative will be offered.
Due to the remote locations we visit, there are a few long drives on this trip. This is a great opportunity to enjoy the scenery and spend some time getting to know the other members of your group.
As accommodation on this trip is either twin or multi share, single travellers will share a room with other travellers of the same sex. Hotels in Europe often don't have double beds, but rather two single beds that can be pushed together/apart. Please also be aware that most guesthouses in Iceland offer shared bathrooms rather than en-suite facilities. Rooms in Iceland can be small, and at times you may be accommodated a short walk away from the main building. Please note that a single supplement is not available on this trip.

Country is amazing, landscapes are breathtaking. Bear in mind it is cold and windy, dress properly. Take enough cash with you to have proper meals, do not expect to have a grocery store in every corner, also do not expect 5-star hotels when you are in guesthouses. Respect cultural differences. Guides are not baby-sitters. This is Scandinavia you are supposed to do every thing by yourself. Read properly about the country. The guide was very professional and gave enough space for the group to have fun(something some of them are still learning how to do). I had a great time and have abslutly nothing to complain about. Loved it. Everything was perfect. Great guide and amazing travel plan. Congrats Intrepid keep up the good work.
