About our Small Group Guided tours
Traveo’s Small-Group Tours offer a variety of insightful and entertaining excursions.
We offer both winter and summer tours, some with activities such as glacier hiking or northern lights hunting included.
Small-Group Tours allow you to sit back and relax during your holiday in Iceland. There is no need to worry about road conditions or where to eat, what to see, and how long you’ll stay at each location. We will take care of all the details.
Your itinerary has been crafted by travel experts with years of experience in the industry. Your guide is a professional local who will show you both the most popular spots as well as a few hidden gems. And your accommodation will be booked at comfortable hotels or guesthouses before you arrive.
Small-Group Tours provide you with a chance to meet others, while still allowing you to step away after the tour is over. They are a great way to meet people, learn from a local guide, and go to places you, perhaps, wouldn’t go on your own.
Larger group tours tend to be more impersonal and rush you through some of the more beautiful locations. Traveo’s Small-Group Tours will have no more than 17 other people, ensuring that you will get plenty of time at gorgeous attractions such as Geysir Geothermal Area or Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon.

Small-Group Tour Activities
Winter Small-Group Tours offer its participants the chance to see the Northern Lights each night. If your tour guide spots them on the way to your accommodation in the evening, they will find an excellent spot to stop so you can watch them dance around in the sky.
Furthermore, most accommodations in the countryside offer their guest a Northern Lights wake-up call. This means that if the hotel staff spots the Auroras, they will call you and wake you up (if you so wish).
In the summer, however, you will be privy to the Midnight Sun. With more light, longer days, and clearer roads, guides on Summer Small-Group Tours can often offer their guests the option of visiting one extra attraction in the evening before retiring to their accommodation.
Aside from included activities, all Small-Group Tours offer a choice of additional tours you can add to your holiday. These include snorkelling in Silfra Fissure, snowmobiling on a glacier, or riding the Icelandic horse.

Yes! When booking your package, you will have the option to customise the days of your tour by adding an activity such as glacier hiking, horse riding or whale watching. If you don’t see the activity that you want, just contact us, and we will see what we can do.
No. All our small group packages are composed of multiple tours. Some are day tours, and some are multi-day tours. The same provider will operate not all excursions. So please make sure to read over the voucher we provide you to see who the service provider is. The service provider is the company that will pick you up. You will also find the pick-up time on your voucher as well as information about the pick-up location.
Pick-ups can sometimes be late. Often it is due to weather or traffic. If, however, they are going to be very late, the service provider will contact you and let you know their status. That is why it is important that you provide us with the correct contact information when booking. If, however, you miss the pick-up, try to contact the tour provider first, that way, you can hopefully reach the driver directly before they’re too far away. If that doesn’t work, then contact us. We will do everything in our power to try to get you on the tour, but there is no guarantee of this to happen. This is why it is essential you are at your pick-up location on time or even a little early.
No. However, all of our small group packages include a transfer from the airport to Reykjavík. At Keflavík Airport, you will board a bus which will be waiting for you outside the airport. Your guide will pick you up in Reykjavík the next day. Please read your voucher carefully for more information.
