Some long drives with plenty of stops for sightseeing and easy walking. Several optional walks (max. 3 hours).
14 nights farms, guesthouses and hostels.
14 breakfasts, 11 lunches and 8 dinners included.
Much of this trip is touring by small bus, with plenty of stops to visit the highlights detailed in the itinerary, and optional walks and activities.
We use a comfortable bus, ruggedly built to Icelandic standards and able to cope with most types of terrain, including fording glacial rivers. Some roads in Iceland are paved, particularly around the towns, but many of the country roads are graded gravel and can be dusty and rough.
Accommodation in Iceland is expensive and often very basic. Those well-travelled clients will find the comparison with similarly priced accommodations in mainland Europe to be disappointing. However, we source good quality, competitive huts, guesthouses and hotels on the itinerary to provide the best possible value for our groups.
Normal group size and age
Normally 9 to 20, plus leader. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
