A bit more about our day tours.

Our selection of day tours combine some of Iceland's best attractions to help you get the most out of your time. Discover hot springs, Northern lights, the Golden Circle, ice caves and horseback riding. 

All tours include basic safety equipment. Our expert guides are highly trainedsafety in safety and first aid, and they are bursting with interesting information about Iceland that they cant wait to share with you.

Approximately 11% of Iceland is covered with glaciers, and owing to logistics and east road access, Iceland is probably the best place in the world to see these frozen giants. The biggest glaciers in Iceland are also the easiest to reach from the capital Reykjavík: there is only about a two hour drive to the fourth biggest glacier in the south of Iceland. Glacier Day tours from Icelandic Mountain Guides give a chance to view, feel and even taste these spectacular phenomena.
