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.

What's Included in Your Small-Group Tour

Included in a Small-Group Tour is:

  • All accommodation, both in Reykjavík and the countryside. These come with a private bathroom and breakfast
  • Airport transfers, both pickup and drop off
  • Transfer around Iceland
  • Personalised, detailed itinerary, listing the things you will see and do during your travel
  • An experienced travel agent who will oversee your itinerary
  • Taxes

Some Small-Group Tours have various activities included, such as a glacier hike or a visit to the Blue Lagoon. This will be listed in the “Included” section of each tour when applicable.

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. 

Frequently asked questions

Yes, it is possible to add extra days/nights in Reykjavík before or after the tour. Adding an additional person is also possible but will depend on availability.

With a Small-Group Guided Package, you’ll get to see the beautiful Icelandic nature accompanied by a professional driver and guide. You won’t have to do any driving, and you’ll get insider information about the country and culture. The tour is in a small group, meaning that you will have a longer time at each destination, and spend less time waiting around for your fellow travellers. With a Self-Drive Package, you will have your own vehicle and serve as your own guide.

On a Small-Group tour, you will travel around Iceland with no more than 17 other people in a minibus. With a Privately Guided Package, however, you will go on a tour with a personal driver and guide. You will be in a smaller vehicle and will share the experience exclusively with your party.

Group sizes are maximum 18 passengers and are conducted in minibuses with about 19 seats.

Depending on availability, it is possible to change the date of your package for a service fee of 5,000 ISK for each day that needs to be altered. 

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.

Traveling to Iceland Stress-Free We just went on a 12 days trip to Iceland made easier thanks to Traveo! We aren't experienced travelers and weren't sure what to see and what to do, there's many amazing things in Iceland and we didn't know what should make the list. Traveo took the stress out of figuring things out where all we had to do was drive to the next destination and decide where to eat that day. Jonathan worked with us to find accommodations and activities that met our budget and what we wanted to see/do. He patiently answered all questions we had leading up to the trip and checked in with us when we arrived and when we got back home. We didn't need to call but he made sure we had everything we needed and gave us his contact info if needed even though he was away himself on vacation. One cool thing is the app Traveo uses for your itinerary, it made things easier with how it lists all activities and destinations on every day of your trip with a section for the accomodations and a Navigate button to bring you to Google maps for each item. Thank you so much again to Jonathan and his team at Traveo for helping us make amazing memories and fill up our online storage with photos!

A superb holiday, brilliantly organised! My 14-year-old son and I have just spent the most amazing 9 days on a self-drive trip organised by Omar. It was utterly wonderful! Iceland offers breathtaking experiences every day and we went whale watching, dropped down inside a volcano and travelled into a glacier. Throw in excursions on a snowmobile and an ATV, plus the most spectacular scenery of waterfalls and canyons and it all adds up to an unforgetable holiday that was brilliantly planned and ran as smoothly as we could have wished for. Thanks again to Omar and his team and we highly recommend Traveo to anyone considering a holiday to this incredible country!

Very professional organisation Just came back from an amazing trip to Iceland that was perfectly organised by Jonathan! Half a year before the trip Jonathan and I had a Zoom call in which we talked about options and the costs of them. The first draft of the trip (an organised tour with personalised extensions) was already spot-on. With a great balance between lots of experiences and the budget I had. My teenage boys loved the being active in this country! Iceland is such an amazing place but very expensive. So it paid off to have someone help me make the most of my budget. Thank you Jonathan for designing this trip!

Great itinerary and trip! My friends and I had an excellent trip planned by Omar. Whenever we had questions, or may have missed one of our busses, he was available to help and coordinate to get us back on track. 10/10!

Fantastisch! We hebben een fantastische vakantie gehad in IJsland! Het contact met de lokale reisagent verliep prettig en vlot via de chat van Evaneos. De reis is aangepast op wat we graag wilden doen. In de app vind je alle details van de reis. De gidsen zijn allemaal even vriendelijk en vertellen vol trots over hun prachtige land. Het is een onvergetelijke reis geworden!

Excellent. Highly recommend! We did a 4 day self-driving trip organized by Traveo. Jonathan set out a detailed itinerary for us that we followed to the letter. It was a perfectly planned trip that had great accommodations, and the itinerary was slightly customized for our preferences. Everything from hotels to car to sights all went as planned without any issues. Saved us so much time planning ourselves and was an amazing trip! Jonathan checked in with us prior to the trip, on arrival, during the trip, and after! We had no issues at all but was comforting to know he was available if needed.
