Founded in 1929, Guðmundur Jónasson Travel Iceland has spent the last nine decades showcasing its native land to travelers from around the world. It offers a variety of pre-set itineraries, small-group/private tours and customized FIT packages, including the following three that are geared for groups:
Northern Lights Exploration True to its name, this winter favorite is geared for those hoping to get a glimpse of the aurora borealis as it illuminates the night sky. Offered from September to April, the eight-day itinerary provides a 98 percent chance of seeing the northern lights by focusing on the more rural areas of western, southern and southeastern Iceland.
Iceland Country Life This nine-day tour, available from June to September, includes visits to the turf houses at a folk museum and to a Viking Age Settlement museum. Travelers also will sail between floating icebergs on a glacial lake, go on a whale-watching excursion, bathe in a mineral-rich geothermal pool and take a stroll on black-lava beaches.
Guided Iceland Circle Offered in both the summer and winter, this bestseller provides a complete look at the island nation. As they follow Iceland’s Ring Road, groups will go to major towns such as Reykjavík, Egilsstaðir and Akureyri. Along the way they will hike to waterfalls and a volcano, relax in the Mývatn Nature Baths and lay eyes on the spectacular Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon.
