Additional info

Pricing

The listed price of the trip is per person based on double occupancy.

Traveling Solo?

You’re in good company.

Opt for a Private Room to yourself, subject to availability, for a supplemental cost of $690USD.

Solo travelers typically make up about half of our small groups. With curiosity at the center of our experiences, there’s a natural camaraderie that develops over the course of a trip. 

If you don’t opt for a Private Room, you'll be matched with another solo traveler of the same gender.

 

Arrival & Departure

You should plan to arrive by 1 p.m. on Day 1, and depart anytime on Day 8. Keflavík International Airport (KEF) connects to a range of flight hubs in Europe and North America. The best flight connections to Rekjavík are offered by IcelandAir.

*Shared shuttle airport transfers are only provided if arriving & departing on the trip dates, or if pre/post arrangements have been made through Atlas Obscura.

Activity Level

Travelers should feel comfortable walking two to four miles over the course of each day, remaining on their feet for long periods of time, and sometimes walking on uneven terrain. Winter in Iceland comes with its own rigors of snowy conditions, cold temperatures, and short daylight hours. This overland journey requires some long driving days up to 6 hours, which will be broken up with sites and activities.
