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.

Fantastic Trip - Iceland's Ring Road Hands down, the greatest trip we have ever taken was the week our family spent in Iceland. We have traveled around the globe and none of our trips to SE Asia, Australia, Canada, Caribbean, etc. come close to what we experienced in Iceland. The majesty and diversity cannot be found anywhere else on the planet. We cannot say enough great things about working with our coordinator Omar and our tour guide, David. Omar was extremely personable and easy to work with during all phases of our trip. One of the itinerary items was a trip to the Blue Lagoon, originally scheduled to take place as soon as we landed in the morning. Unfortunately, due to the fissure volcano making a mess of things nearby, the Blue Lagoon was closed. Omar notified us before we departed from the US and had two different options for us to choose from. We ended up visiting the Secret Lagoon and had a wonderful experience. When we were in Iceland, Omar stayed in touch with us to ensure everything was going well. For reference, our itinerary included a geothermal spa, geysers, lava fields, a glacier hike, an ice cave hike, a food tour, a Northern Lights tour, shopping, waterfalls, a dairy farm (the fresh ice cream was a hit!), black sand beaches and the glacier lagoon. Our private guide, David, was such a great guide that we have been singing his praises ever since we returned home to all of our friends and family. He is extremely knowledgeable about Iceland's history and geographic features, is able to convey his knowledge in a way that is engaging, was able/willing to make ad-hoc suggestions and stops to keep us all entertained (including our 7 year old daughter), and was a delight to be around.

Amazing Trip Planned by Ómar - Traveo One phone call and several emails and Ómar planned our perfect family vacation! 8 days & 7 nights filled with wonderful activities and adventures that allowed us to experience Iceland! From suggesting restaurants and hotels to planning activities, Ómar could not have been more patient and receptive! He then arranged everything & was available when we needed to adjust plans while in Iceland! Would definitely recommend Ómar & Traveo.

One word for Iceland, Traveo and Holly - Awesome. One word for Iceland, Traveo and Holly - Awesome. Trip was relaxing, enjoyable. I managed to see Aurora, humpback whales etc. From my first enquiry about my plan to spend 12 days 11 night in Iceland. Holly has been working meticulously to draft and advise how I should spend my 12 days in Iceland. She is the kind of tour advisor everyone would like to engage with. As traveller/tourist I have come across lots of tour advisor. Holly is the top of the cream. She knows what suits me and the programme that she drafted not too rushed and bland. She is responsive even through email. She answers all my queries or hiccups i face during my holiday, she will reply to my email spontaneously. With her advice, I caught the Aurora from Tjornin Pond in Reykjavik for two nights. Instead joining the Aurora Hunting tours i took Holly' advice. I would say I'm lucky because with that kind of lights surround the Tjornin Pond i still manage to catch the Aurora. Keep up the good work, Holly and Traveo.

Excellent! Had a great trip! We were out with our children aged 23 to 26 and Jonathan from Traveo put together the perfect holiday for us. Did, saw and enjoyed a lot!

Super Service Traveo hat ein sehr nettes Programm zusammengestellt. Der eigentliche Plan war die Nordlichter zu sehen. Leider hatten wir Sturm und Schnee die ganze Woche. Aber dadurch wurde es ein richtiger Abenteuerurlaub. Als wir dann an einem Nachmittag durch einen Schneesturm festsaßen, weil die Ringstraße gesperrt wurde, hat uns Holly von Traveo auch spät am Abend noch eine Unterkunft besorgt. Super Service.

Great Travel Advisors with a personal touch! Omar at Traveo was an incredible travel advisor. He responded to our initial email promptly and continued to stay in touch with us until we got back home after our trip. We met with him on Zoom to discuss the kind of things that we like to do, our desired activity level, and the most popular as well as off the beaten path things to do in Iceland. He put together a personalized trip that took away all of the worries of traveling in a foreign country. The volcano erupted while we were there and he quickly secured a reservation at Sky Lagoon for us because Blue Lagoon was closed. I would highly recommend Omar and Traveo to anyone traveling to Iceland!

Wonderful winter honeymoon We ended up changing honeymoon destinations last minute and didn’t have much time to research for Iceland! We worked with holly and told her activities that we would like to do and what we envisioned and she came up with the perfect itinerary and took care of all the bookings for us. It was fantastic and everything was seamless! The timing of all the activities and travel were perfectly timed to maximize use of daylight hours! It made for a wonderful stress free honeymoon 🥰

Traveo, the best self drive tour company ever!!! Her name is Holly. She is Traveo. She represents everything a travel organization should be. I contacted Traveo with only a few weeks to my desired travel time period. I explained that I wanted to take my wife for her birthday back to Iceland for a second time. The main purpose was to see the Northern Lights as this year was a 7 year cycle and the lights had been extraordinary. As that part turned out we were treated to a phenomenal light show the very last night we were there. And as an aside we drove through Grindavik and the Blue Lagoon mere hours before they closed it down. And over the roads that have buckled! Oooh, shivers!! So back to the planning for this trip . Traveo came up in a search when I looked for trip advisors. I contacted them just to see how unreasonable it would be for them to do what I did the year before. Holly contacted me right away and simply asked what did I want to do? How long and where? So I told here I had 9 days and I want to go through the Snaefellnes peninsula. Part of the Golden Circle and out to the Glacier Lagoon and Vestrahorn Mountains. In a matter of days Holly had an itinerary set up for me detailing all those places and more. Being particular I said I didn't need this place and would rather go to a different place. No problem, no questions, and the changes were made the next day. We continued over the next week detailing and getting more specific. Mind you this was before I had made a commitment to Traveo! I must admit I was flabbergasted that in a very short period of time that Holly had put together an amazing itinerary. I was impressed with everything she/Traveo presented. In a simple and elegant app you have everything you could possible need. You have at your fingertips a page for every day of your trip. Each day has your accommodations, everything in that area worth seeing, where to eat, and specific links to just click on to take you there. All the navigate links were spot on and so easy. Every hotel is detailed in offerings and breakfast was included in every one. That specifically is something everyone should be sure is included. I can't say enough about how good this app is. It was perfect in every way. Always available, included everything I could possibly want to know about my trip. My package included my rental car (always get a four wheel drive and the largest size you can afford. Be sure to get unlimited miles and the extra all inclusive insurance.) We also wanted to do a couple of side events. We asked to do the glacier snowmobile trip and the Blue Ice cave experience. A few days later Holly contacted me and explained that the snowmobile tour was canceled due to weather conditions that the company could not control. She had other multiple choices for us already and we chose the Dune Buggy Tour. Boy oh boy, this is a trip everyone should choose. Its more for extra fun than anything. We were flying across the black sand beach, up and down the side of huge dunes, splashing through rivers . And I must admit up to 60 kph. That was an incredible awesome side trip Do it!! It's Icelandic Mountain Guides at Myrdalsjokull Glacier. We also took the Blue Ice Cave tour through Trollo Expeditions at Jokulsarlon Glacier. Our guide Frikki was the best. Again, just do it. We had to change the time slot just the day before and Jonathan, also of Traveo made the change in less than an hour. Again, superb service. We traveled the whole Snaefellsnes peninsula, through the golden circle, and all the way south east to Hofn and the Vestrahorn mountains We came back through the southeast via Grindavik, the Blue lagoon and on to Keflavik. Just to name a few places on that route you will see Kirkjufell, Geysir, Gullfoss, Vestrahorn and so many other incredible waterfalls, glaciers and just plain beautiful scenery. You will see Vik and the black sand beaches and the basalt columns. iceland is treasure after treasure . Go there. There was only one bad and ugly experience. The rental car pick up was a horror show. Mind you this is out of Traveo's control. The company was supposed to have someone available at all times to help you. They have a call button but no one responds. When you get in at 4:00 am and they don't open until 6:00 am, that's a problem. When they tell you the vehicle is just outside here in this lot and it takes four people an an hour to find it, that's a problem. Needless to say , wasting three hours made me a very unhappy camper for that company. I'm not going to name them, that's not my purpose. Just beware to compare your arrival time, car place time and how to acquire your vehicle before you get there. We are used to a much different system in the US. So one thing I can say for sure, if you want to travel, do it with Traveo. They are first class, very detailed, and helpful in every way, every time. My sincerest thanks to Holly. I have a very happy wife so therefore, a very happy life!!!

Amazing Iceland experience with Traveo itinerary My husband and I used Traveo- Omar to go to Iceland last year 2022, it was so thoughtfully booked and we had an amazing experience that we wanted to go back this year and see more of this place beauty. First of all, Iceland is a magical place with a lots of world’s wonders. From blue lagoon, hot springs, glaciers, volcanos, northern lights, waterfalls, natural ice caves, volcanic black beaches and so on. Omar put up the itinerary for us to capture the most beautiful places on the south with amazing hotels on the way to sleep in with restaurants with (oh my God) the best food in the world. We have never tried better food, even in Italy. Everywhere we went, even the sandwiches on the gas station were so delicious. Not sure how they do it. But everything tasted so well in Iceland. We would highly recommend using Traveo- ask for Omar to book your trip. He would think of everything from rental car, places to eat, rest and enjoy. Thank you Ómar for another memorable experience.

18 day trip around Island in October 2023 We did a 18 day trip around Iceland in October 2023. We had a great time. All hotel bookings and the rental car were done by Traveo. Traveo booked some activities and we booked some additional activities ourselves. Due to weather conditions (snow storms) we had to change the itinerary, because some roads were closed. Traveo supported us with that by booking another Hotel 'on the fly'. We drove counterclockwise around the island, about 3800 km. Never a dull moment. In general we were rather lucky with the weather. Only at the last day we were not able to do a hike due to strong winds.

You're in good hands!
