Luxury Iceland Travel

Experience Iceland

Welcome to a land of untamed natural beauty and wild abandon. It is an adventure for the taking and we dive in with activities for all ages. Whether traversing the exquisite landscape on foot, in a Super Jeep—the ultimate off-road vehicle for straying gloriously off the beaten path—or in the comfort of a private coach, you’ll be in awe. The sense that you are in the company of the elves, trolls and the sword-wielding heroes of Viking fantasy and legend is impossible to shake. Iceland is as entrancing as it is welcoming, and truly offers the trip of a lifetime.

Trip Ideas

Iceland Family Multi-Active

A family trip to Iceland is like stepping into a scene from “The Lord of the Rings”—a fantasy playground where ancient sagas of sword-wielding Viking legends come to life, where trolls are still believed to roam the lava fields, and the lofty summit of Snaefellsnes offers routes to the centre of the earth. Travelling in the comfort of our own private vehicles, we set off for hikes over lava fields, glacier treks, caving, horseback-riding and river rafting.

  • Hike through lava fields and explore inside a lava tube to see what it’s like below ground
  • Ride an Icelandic pony on black sand beaches and river-raft down the scenic Hvita River
  • Take a ferry to the Westman Islands and explore the city buried by an erupting volcano

Iceland Winter Adventure

Our five-day winter adventure includes two nights in Reykjavik and two nights in the countryside where conditions for viewing the Aurora are optimal. The best time to see the northern lights in Iceland is from September through March. They can be seen anywhere in Iceland and are most like to appear on cold, calm and clear evenings. Travelling in the comfort of our own 4X4 with an expert Icelandic guide, we set off for a real winter wonderland adventure!

  • Take a snowmobile tour on a glacier and hike across its surface
  • In the evenings, enjoy fantastic meals, view breathtaking sunsets and spot the Northern Lights
  • Take in the views of the magical snow-covered surroundings from your own hot pool
