Group Tours The Inside Story For those who like holidays without hassle, our group tours are designed to take all the stress out of your journey. With someone else at the wheel, you can sit back and watch the incredible winter scenery go by, knowing that your trip has been designed by an Iceland expert to include all the highlights along the way. With frequent stops en route, you’ll discover the fascinating history and geology of the ever-changing landscape with the help of your local guide and share wonderful experiences along the way with a group of like-minded people. The northern lights draw visitors to the Arctic Circle every year, and no matter whether you’ve seen them before or you’re experiencing them for the first time, the aurora borealis never fails to impress. All of our winter tours are designed with aurora hunting in mind, and many include talks or presentations to help you understand the natural phenomenon and learn of the myths and legends surrounding it. Pack plenty of warm layers, including hats and gloves for rural walks after dark. A DSLR camera using a long shutter speed and tripod are recommended for capturing the best shots. A wide range of detailed itineraries are available from your Regent Iceland Specialist, who can also advise on tour availability for your preferred departure dates.

Story to tell Shane Hosiene

Why I love group tours Travelling on a guided tour in Iceland is a bit like watching the best movie you’ll ever see. Around each turn, the widescreen windows reveal an epic panorama of wild steppe behind which rise immense glaciers and mighty volcanoes. Regular stops allow you to get to the heart of the action, whilst at the end of the day you can look forward to great food, convivial company and a comfortable bed.
