About Summer Holiday Packages

Summer Holiday Packages allow you to experience Iceland’s blossoming nature, warmer temperatures, and longer days.

These seasonal packages are available as Self-Drive Tours — where you are behind the wheel — Guided Small-Group Minibus Tours, and Privately Guided Tours

Self-Drive Tours are perfect for those looking to explore on their own; those who like to set their own schedule and love the freedom of the open road. 

Guided tours, on the other hand, are great for visitors who like to sit back and relax. A local English-speaking guide will drive you around, showing you their favourite spots and sharing some secrets about this beautiful land. 

Summer weather in Iceland is both warmer and milder than in the winter. This means many roads that are closed in the winter are easily accessible, allowing you to explore off the beaten path. 

Summer Holiday Packages provide you with the opportunity to visit both some of Iceland’s most remote regions, including East Iceland and the Highlands, as well as popular stops such as the Golden Circle, Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, and Lake Mývatn.

What's Included in Your Summer Holiday Package

Included in both Self-Drives and Guided Tours are all accommodations and transportation, which will be booked before you arrive. We will take care of all of the arrangements, so all you need to think about is what to pack.

You will also receive a personal itinerary which will tell you about the places you will see on your summer holiday in Iceland. 

Summer Holiday Package Activity Options

The midnight sun allows visitors to Iceland to explore longer and see and do more. As well as showing you to fantastic sightseeing spots, Summer Holiday Packages provide you with the option of adding an adventure or two to your vacation. These include:

  • Relaxing at the Blue Lagoon
  • Glacier hiking at either Sólheimajökull Glacier or Skaftafell Nature Reserve
  • Taking a boat tour on Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon
  • Stepping inside a volcano
  • Caving in Víðgelmir Lava Cave
  • Snorkelling in Silfra Fissure at Þingvellir National Park
  • Riding the Icelandic horse through the countryside
  • Snowmobiling on the glaciers Langjökull and Mýrdalsjökull
  • Visiting the Katla ice caves or the Langjökull ice cave tunnels
  • Taking an ATV tour in East Iceland or on a black sand beach
  • Visiting the Vök Baths, Mývatn Nature Baths or Krauma Spa 
  • Whale and puffin watch
  • And many more…

Frequently asked questions

There are many reasons why you should visit Iceland in the summer. From the midnight sun illuminating the evening sky, allowing you more time to explore and sightsee, to the adorable puffins which make this island their temporary home. The remote Highland region and the secluded Westfjords are also accessible in the summer months. The weather is much warmer than in the winter. Still, you will also have a chance to experience snow and ice with various glacier activities such as snowmobiling or glacier hiking. 

No,  unfortunately, the northern lights cannot be seen in the summer months since the midnight sun lights up the sky in May, June, July and early August, and you need complete darkness to witness the Auroras. You can, however, see them in the winter, from September to early April.

Puffins make this island their home between April and August each year. You can see puffins all around Iceland, and the most popular places are the Westman Islands, Látrabjarg Cliffs in the Westfjords, Dyrhólaey Peninsula in South Iceland, and Borgarfjörður Eystri in East Iceland. You can also join a puffin watching tour (and combine it with a whale watching tour) both in Reykjavík and in North Iceland.

The road conditions in the summer are very good, and so a 4×4 is not necessary. However, if you plan on driving the mountain roads (or F-Roads), you will need a car with a four-wheel-drive. It is always a good practice to check road conditions, just to be prepared — even in the summer.

The Icelandic weather can be very fickle, even in the summer. When packing, it is best to be prepared for anything. We suggest you bring clothes you can layer. That way, you can easily add a layer or remove one for optimal comfort. Here is a list of what you should bring on a summer holiday in Iceland:

    • Wind and waterproof jacket
    • Warm inner layers such as long sleeve shirts and jumpers
    • Wind and waterproof trousers
    • Sturdy walking shoes
    • Gloves, hat (beanie) and scarf
    • Thermal underwear (especially if travelling into the Highlands)
    • Swimsuit and towel

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!

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.
