About Private Tours in Iceland

Private Guided Tours allow you to discover the wonders of Iceland while spending more quality time with the ones you care about, instead of a group of strangers.
Not only will you have more privacy with these guided excursions, but your tour will be more flexible.
Your time in Iceland is precious, which is why the schedule on a Private Guided Tour is catered to just you. This means that if you want to stop for a coffee break, you can do so whenever you want. You’ll get the trip you want in the way you want it.
Choosing a Private Guided Tour in Iceland gives you exclusive access to a professional guide who is more than ready to answer your questions and show you their favourite spots, some known perhaps only by the locals.
If you are looking for a short, private excursion to add to your holiday in Iceland, then this is the perfect option for you. If, however, you are looking for a complete private package which includes accommodation, airport transfers, and 24/7 access to a personal travel advisor, we recommend you check out Iceland Private Tour Packages.

Private Day Tours in Iceland

Private Day Tours in Iceland allow you to visit some of the countries most popular destinations, such as the Golden Circle, Snæfellsnes Peninsula, and South Coast only with your favourite people. Your guide will also take you to a unique off-the-beaten-track location, depending on your interest (and weather conditions).

You can also book private activities where you’ll experience Iceland’s wild nature in complete privacy. These include private Glacier Hikes, private Ice Cave Trips, and private Snorkelling Tours. 

Depending on the tour you choose, you’ll meet your guide on location, or they will pick you up from your accommodation. Then you’ll be off on an adventure you’ll never forget. The guide’s attention will be reserved for you only, and you’ll receive the best possible care on your trip.

Multi-Day Tours are also available as Private Tours. Accommodation during the Multi-Day Tour is included. However, you´ll have to provide your own overnight stays before and after the trip. If you are looking for a complete package with all accommodation and airport transfers, we recommend that you check out Iceland Private Tour Packages.

Private Tours are the perfect choice for those already in Iceland who have accommodations booked but are looking to experience the beauty of Iceland in seclusion and luxury.

Private Northern Lights Tours in Iceland

One of the most popular activities in Iceland in the winter is hunting for the elusive Northern Lights. Perhaps the best way to spot these beautiful Auroras is on a Private Northern Lights Tour.

Most Private Northern Lights Tours are conducted in a Super Jeep, a large vehicle built to go off the beaten track or luxury SUVs. Your personal guide will pick you up in the evening and then find the best spot to witness this magnificent celestial display.

The advantage of a Private Northern Lights Tour is that you´ll get exclusive access to the best locations to see the Auroras. You´ll also get more flexibility, intimacy, and freedom than on a group tour.

Private Northern Lights Tours are an excellent option for winter visitors to Iceland looking to see the spectacular Aurora Borealis away from all crowds.

Frequently asked questions

The main benefit of a private tour is that you get to go on it with only the people you choose. Another advantage is that your guide on the tour will give you their full attention, meaning that they´ll have plenty of time to answer all your questions, provide you with local, insider information, and recommend places to see and eat. Your schedule is also more flexible than on a group tour. Need a bathroom break? No problem, your guide will make a stop just for you.

Tipping in Iceland is not expected. However, if you feel like your guide did a good job, feel free to tip them as a show of appreciation.

Private Tours are more flexible than group tours and you can often make small changes to the itinerary such as adding a glacier hike or spend a little longer time at a sightseeing stop. However, these changes usually depend on weather and road conditions. If you want to make big changes or fully customise the itinerary, you could instead just create your perfect holiday here.
