Trends come and go, and amongst them are destinations that are rushed with people as everyone seeks out the “dream vacation” or “ultimate adventure”. Currently, and for much of the foreseeable future, Iceland is amongst those trends. As a result of this flood of tourists, it is getting harder and harder to get reservations at hotels, restaurants, tours, etc. The secret to traveling to Iceland and avoiding this is actually rather simple: accommodation.
On your search for the ultimate Iceland experience, try to look for tours that include accommodation. This little trick will allow you to kick your legs up and relax while the tour company handles the rest for you; lodging, food, activities, all of it (or at least try to find ones that do). For example, if you have a hankering to hike the Laugavegur trail, you would have a very difficult time finding a hut on your own. But then consider Icelandic Mountain Guides, Who would have that prebooked for you, no problem.
The trick to accommodation: booking early. Booking your spot early is essential if want to get into the most popular attractions. Remember that thousands upon thousands of people are chasing after a similar experience, so getting an edge is the only way you are going to assure your chance to experience it.
So when you jump the gun and decide to book your flight to Iceland, remember to check out Icelandic Mountain Guides. We offer tours across the country, at any time of the year, accommodation included. We hope to see you soon and hope to guide you in your adventure, or better yet, your “dream vacation”.
