8 Compelling Reasons to book a trip with Reykjavik Excursions

So you’ve made it to Iceland! Hurray! Now it’s time to decide on what to see, what to do and how to get there. The options are many, but we have made a list of 8 compelling reasons why booking a trip with Reykjavik Excursions might just be one of your best decisions yet.


With Icelandic winter weather being rather unpredictable, it’s good to know that you don’t have to brave the elements on your own. Reykjavik Excursions is one of Iceland’s oldest tour companies. With seasoned drivers and 50 years of experience under its belt since its humble beginnings in 1968, you can rest assured that you will be in safe hands with Reykjavik Excursions—and that’s a reason to celebrate!


Any road trip in Iceland during the winter months demands preparedness that only the most professional companies can offer. With its experienced drivers, guides and specially equipped coaches, Reykjavik Excursions maintains one of the largest fleets in the country, with vehicles of all shapes and sizes taking you to all the most beautiful spots in Iceland. And one of the coolest features has to be the fact that all Reykjavik Excursions’ comfortable coaches are equipped with free Wi-Fi, so you can keep friends and family updated as you travel.


One of the highlights of any winter trip to Iceland is the possibility of seeing the Northern Lights. But those flirty, fleeting auroras have a reputation of being consistently inconsistent, dancing around the skies on their terms, not ours. To this end, Reykjavik Excursions has come up with a whole range of Northern Lights tours in conjunction with other activities, thereby giving you more bang for your buck. Choose from a variety of tours that cater to a plethora of interests─Northern Lights and the Golden Circle Combo tour, Northern Lights and a countryside langoustine dinner, Northern Lights by boat. How about a Northern Lights, lava tube cave and skyr factory visit? All of these and more are available to help you get the most out of your time in Iceland and maximising your chances of catching the Northern Lights.


What is a trip to Iceland without seeing the Golden Circle? Reykjavik Excursions offers a whole smorgasbord of possible day tours that encompass Iceland’s three celebrated landmarks—Thingvellir National Park, Geysir Geothermal Area and the raging Gullfoss waterfall, which make up the “big three” of the Golden Circle. Reykjavik Excursions goes all out with a full list of activities that are paired with the Golden Circle─how about an ATV quad bike adventure tour, or a health and wellness tour that combines the Golden Circle with a relaxing dip in the geothermal waters of Laugarvatn Fontana? Or maybe you would prefer a few hours getting to know the Icelandic horse before heading off around the Golden Circle. With so many combo tours to choose from there is something to suit everyone.


Enjoy the peaceful calm of Iceland’s winter landscapes. Reykjavik Excursions’ hugely popular South Coast Adventure tour is ideal for seeing all those iconic places that the south coast is known for─ waterfalls such as Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, the black sand beach of Reynisfjara and the imposing basalt columns of Reynisfjall, the picturesque village of Vík and a walk up to Sólheimajökull glacier. How exciting is that?  


Getting from Keflavik Airport to Reykjavik has never been easier. Reykjavik Excursions’ shuttle, known as the Flybus is conveniently timed to coincide with many arriving and departing flights. This means you can stay with Reykjavik Excursions from the moment you begin your journey until it is time to say goodbye.


Reykjavik Excursions is the first Icelandic tour operator to be granted the ISO 14001 certification for environmental management from the British Standard Institute (BSI). The company is also certified by Vakinn, Iceland’s official independent quality and environmental rating system.


Reykjavik Excursions is the only company in Iceland with membership in the Global Passenger Network, an international association founded to promote the highest standards in coach operations worldwide.


Be warm, be well and enjoy Iceland this winter with Reykjavik Excursions. Oh…and Happy 50th, Reykjavik Excursions!
