welcome to iceland horizon

In 1991 I first got into the travel business while living in the UK and was lucky enough to be involved in organizing, selling and most important of all, guiding small group natural history and adventure tours to some of the most amazing places in the world. These destinations included Borneo and South-East Asia, India, China and Africa along with Iceland and Swedish Lapland.

After moving to Iceland in 2000, I eventually set up my own company,  Iceland Horizon, operating camping and adventure tours around this spectacular country.  By 2007, Iceland Horizon started running day tours to visit some of Iceland’s best attractions.  I kept with the small group approach as I couldn’t see any reason why day tours always had to be in large buses, when the small groups are more personal and can be more specialised to meet the needs of the modern traveller.

Over time, the small groups have become more popular and we have kept our tour operations the same since we started.  I have no intention of becoming a large company, with large buses and I prefer to keep things small and personal in the future, as this style of travel is more fun for the tourists and for the guides.

I hope you choose to travel with us on one or more of our minibus day tours and sincerely hope that you enjoy your time in Iceland !

Always in small groups by minibus - maximum 17 people. Payment is made on the day of each tour, no advance payments.

Looking for small group day tours from Reykjavik?  Iceland Horizon can offer what you’re looking for.

We operate a selection of the most popular day tours at competitive prices and always keep our groups small, travelling by minibus with a driver/guide in order to keep the tours more personal, friendly and informative.

Traveling in small groups is more rewarding for tourists and guides alike.  Thus encouraging more enthusiasm and interest from everyone involved.

We can also offer these tours on a private basis for your group, if you are several people travelling together, where you charter the vehicle and guide for the day and the schedule can sometimes be modified to suit your requirements.

As we only operate the tours in small groups, they can become fully booked in advance, so the earlier you book, the more chance there is that we will still have space for you.
