Discover Iceland

3rd July - 1st August 2017(30 nights)pdfdownload



A journey around Iceland exploring the amazing natural phenomena 

Iceland is far more different than you ever imagined, where you can witness the marvels of Mother Nature up close. You will see several glaciers, spouting geysers, steaming mud-pools, icebergs, magnificent waterfalls and volcanoes

This tour will be best enjoyed by able-bodied, adventurously minded people who enjoy the “outdoors”. The driving will be leisurely, and independant so that you will have the opportunity to visit many of the attractions while travelling between campsites. There is only one main road around Iceland with smaller roads off to the various places of interest, please note that many of the smaller roads (white roads) do not have tarmac.

The Icelandic view of camping is not like ours, so their campsites are usually a very simple affair with basic, but clean facilities. There is no guarantee of an electric hook-up on all the campsites visited so tour participants should be prepared to use their motorhome on gas and 12v when needed – we will also be staying on some Aires where no facilities will be available.

Our ferry schedule means we also have the opportunity to spend a few days on the Faroe Islands on our return journey, another wonderland of nature. The ferry has a choice of bars, restaurants and various entertainment for you to enjoy during your voyage and en-suite cabins are included for you

Most of the country is uninhabited, with over 50% of people living in the Reykjavik area, but please be assured that the warmth shown by Icelanders, their desire to make your stay as pleasant as possible will, like the spectacular landscape, never be forgotten
