Private Overland Shore Excursion

Visiting Iceland by cruise ship is a great way to get a taste of many corners of this amazing island. However there are always places which can't be reached on a day excursion. A 2 or 3 day tour will extend your sightseeing reach and allow you to experience more of Iceland than other cruise ship passengers. After all Iceland is one of the most beautiful countries in the world and deserves to be the highlight of your cruise holiday.

So if you want to have it all, then a multi-day overland tour between ports is the way to go!
Check out our standard sample itineraries and/or contact us for a customised itinerary for your group.
