What's so special about the Best of North Iceland? It's a whole new idea, actually, combining comfortable touring, good guiding and flexibility. Not only do you cover a lot of territory with your guide and driver, but you can also choose to take (or not take) some optional half and full day tours along the way. You have the choice to do stuff on your own - hiking, riding or organized tours, or lounging, swimming and relaxing. Great concept.
Our Prices include taxes, fuel charges and a number of “extras”.
