Go on a travel adventure in South Iceland
The South Iceland Adventure is no ordinary trip to Iceland. This 5-day guided small group tour in Iceland is designed especially for active 20 - 39-year-old travellers, with an emphasis on faster-paced daily journeys, more youthful activities and authentic tastes of Icelandic young adult culture and nightlife. Enjoy major attractions like the Golden Circle, the northern lights, the Reykjavik nightlife, glaciers, waterfalls and more -- see the full itinerary here.
Travelling solo in Iceland? Make new friends from around the world in a group of 16 travellers max — a few too many people to fit comfortably in a selfie but enough for a welcome dose of diversity and fun stories to share. Learn how to pronounce skál (“cheers”) and other cool new Icelandic words from your energetic local tour guide. But don’t worry if you can’t master the tongue-twisting language because almost everyone in Iceland speaks good English.
Put down that heavy backpack, because you’ll be travelling around in a cosy van with free Wi-Fi for livestreaming your Icelandic adventures to (very jealous) friends back home. Enjoy some quiet relaxation — and privacy — each night at a comfy hotel, not a noisy dorm in a youth hostel. This trip may be adventurous, but it's way more comfortable than most tours for young adults in Iceland.

Getting to Iceland is easier and more affordable than you think.
With the ever-growing number of flights to Keflavik Airport from North America and Europe, it’s easier than ever to find good airfare deals to Iceland with budget airlines. Flight times to Iceland are just 3 hours from London, 5.5 hours from New York and 7.5 hours from Seattle. And hey, no vaccinations needed!
Get VIP access to South Iceland’s glaciers, waterfalls and northern lights.
If you think South Iceland’s natural wonders look amazing on social media, imagine what they’re like in real life. Picture what it’s like to walk on top of — and inside — a massive glacier, with crampons strapped to your boots and a wilderness guide to lead you around a labyrinth of blue ice.
Get close enough to giant waterfalls to hear the thunderous roar and feel the mist on your face. Explore places that appear in music videos by artists like Kaleo, Bon Iver and Justin Bieber. And with a little luck from Mother Nature, watch the northern lights put on a show like you’ve never seen.
Try some Icelandic foods that are worthy of a photo op.
In Iceland, the adventure extends to the cuisine. Munch on some delicious Icelandic specialties like free-range lamb, fresh seafood, vegetables grown in geothermal greenhouses and creamy yogurt-like skyr. Feeling adventurous? Try some strange Icelandic delicacies like fermented shark, dried fish or the omnipresent black licorice candies beloved by locals. Yum!
Whether it’s a steaming bowl of homemade lobster soup or a famous Icelandic hot dog ordered eina með öllu (the works), your stomach and Instagram feed will both be satisfied in Iceland. With Reykjavik’s flourishing foodie scene — including Scandinavian-style food halls with cheap bites, youthful cafes with vegan options, and restaurants with international fusion cuisine — there’s something for all tastes and budgets in Iceland.
Discover where the Reykjavik locals go to party and hang out.
Have you ever had a cocktail made with a birch-infused liqueur named Björk? Or the Icelandic national schnapps nicknamed “The Black Death”? Or an Icelandic craft beer brewed near the Arctic Circle?
If you said “no” to any of those, this trip gives you a chance to remedy that. With a local leading your tour you’ll discover the best bars and clubs to go to in Reykjavik to experience the legendary Icelandic nightlife. This is where that Icelandic word skál comes in handy.
