As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real Iceland in a way like no other. Iceland is the original land of fire and ice. More than ten percent of the country is a slow-moving glacier, whilst bubbling ground and rising steam erupts through its raw landscape. Despite this otherworldly natural setting, a tour with Trafalgar proves there is more to Iceland than milky blue thermal pools, basalt volcanic cliffs and some 20,000 waterfalls. With us, you will get to know the people and culture, gaining a deeper appreciation of this earthly paradise. Learn of a Viking past, hear mythological tales of trolls, elves and hidden pots of gold, and connect with locals in the quirky capital of Reykjavik. Architecture, music and culinary delights almost compete with the phenomenal sky display of the Northern Lights. This escape to the edge of the world is an invitation that’s impossible to resist. Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.
With slow-moving glaciers, milky blue thermal pools, basalt volcanic cliffs, 20,000 waterfalls and the spellbinding Northern Lights, Iceland is an earthly paradise. Join your expert Trafalgar Travel Director to get under the surface of the original land of fire and ice.
Winter avg temp
"Iceland is like nowhere else on the planet - the waterfalls, views and landscapes are absolutely stunning - and that's without even mentioning the Northern Lights"
With rain falling an average of 213 days a year in Iceland, a raincoat is definetely an item you won't want to forget. A much needed extra layer for the subarctic climate, it will also provide protection from overzealous waterfalls.
Having a dry layer of warmth close to your skin is something to have handy for Iceland whether summer or winter. It’s especially helpful to have close for those for those who love to spend time outdoors exploring the country’s extreme landscapes.
Exposing your ears to the elements can send chills through your body - easily preventable with a warm pair of ear-muffs.
Icelanders take bathing very seriously. With more pools per capita than any country in the world, you may wish to take a few pairs of swimming costumes to ensure you always have one dry.
