Group Size
Limited to ~10 Travelers
A very important feature of our Iceland adventure is the limited group size, as nature expeditions are best experienced with fewer travelers.
Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
Our Private Leaders
Included
  • Trip price includes: Accommodations, services of Nat Hab's professional Expedition Leader(s) and local guides, all meals from dinner on Day 1 through breakfast on final day, most gratuities, airport transfers on Day 1 and final day, all activities and entrance fees, all taxes, permits and service fees.
  • Internal air includes: Flights to Isafjordur and from Isafjordur back to Reykjavik.
Not Included
Travel to and from the start and end point of your trip, alcoholic beverages, some gratuities, passport and visa fees (if any), optional activities, items of a personal nature (phone calls, laundry and internet, etc.), airline baggage fees, required medical evacuation insurance, optional travel protection insurance.
Physical Requirements
Moderate
In order to participate in this trip, you must be able to walk unassisted at a steady pace for a minimum of 2 miles at a time over uneven terrain. Our itinerary involves daily walks or hikes of varied lengths over pavement, boardwalks, rough lava, glacial ice and earthen trails that can be muddy, slippery and uneven with roots and rocks (please note that all walks can be more difficult to navigate during inclement weather). Some hikes involve walking up and down hills. The group may also do multiple hikes a day, with total distances exceeding 3 miles. Those who would like to see the Askja Caldera will be required to walk approximately 4 miles round-trip, traversing up and down an incline. The highest elevation reached during the trip will be at the top of Askja Volcano, situated nearly 5,000 feet above sea level. Several boat trips are also included, and while we generally spend time in more sheltered waters, travelers prone to seasickness should take this into consideration and may wish to take precautions. All travelers must also be able to get into and out of RIB boats, Zodiacs (rigid rubber boats) and other types of boats with minimal assistance. Optional activities include a moderately easy glacier hike that requires the use of crampons (all specialized equipment is provided for both excursions). The trip involves many very early morning starts and long, full days of activities with little down time. Some drives between locations are long (4-5 hours or longer, depending on local conditions).
Important Information About This Trip
Our grand Iceland adventure is different from those typically offered by most tour companies. Though we do include some major highlights, we deliberately take you away from more highly popular tourist spots and into traditional, more remote locales that unveil Iceland’s rich natural history in further detail. Accordingly, we try to stay in more authentic accommodations in certain less-traveled locations. While comfortable, rooms and beds can often be a bit less spacious than those typically found in North America. However, the slight inconveniences are well worth it, as whatever we may forsake in space and luxury, we more than make up for in setting, surrounded by nature amid Iceland’s most awe-inspiring sights. Please be prepared to spend time outdoors in unpredictable weather, which may include heavy rain and wind—or perfect sunshine.

Also note that due to the nature of Iceland's often delayed hotel reservation system, the hotels listed on our website are only samples of the accommodations that will be used during the trip. Final hotel details can change approximately 4 to 6 weeks prior to departure and will be the same or similar properties.
Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas you will travel to on this trip are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for this program. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat Adventures, we require that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage. Please note that we will add the cost of Natural Habitat Adventures' medical evacuation policy (currently $48 per person) to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, phone number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.

To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays and lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation and comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer by calling 800-543-8917.
Getting There & Getting Home
Please arrive in Reykjavik in time for a 5:30 pm briefing and dinner. Upon arrival at the Keflavik International Airport you will be met by our representative and transferred approximately one hour to the hotel. You are free to depart Keflavik at any time on the final day of the trip. We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as our staff is intimately familiar with the special requirements of our program and can arrange the most efficient travel. Please call us at 800-543-8917. Note that while we offer you the best possible rates available to us on airfare and additional nights' accommodations, you may find better fares online.
