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 multi-share, single travellers will share a room with other travellers of the same sex. Twin share, quad share and multi share in bunk accommodation are possible depending on the season and the make-up of the group. A single supplement is not available to be booked on this trip. Please also be aware that many 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.

Check the weather in advance and bring appropriate clothes. We were expecting rain and fortunately I brought rain clothes. Luckily it only rain one day for a short duration.

A jam-packed express trip through one of the most stunningly beautiful countries in the world. Hike up a glacier, and if you're lucky you might get to see the northern lights too!
