Details and What to Expect


Like all Go Learn journeys, the adventure begins before you ever leave home. Go Learn will supply you with all the information, tips, and documents you'll need to have an enjoyable tour. We're always available to answer questions, too—let us know how we can make your journey a smooth one!

About Iceland

Iceland is defined by its landscape—from it glaciers and volcanoes, to beaches and hot springs, a trip to Iceland means outdoor exploration. We’ll visit national parks, geysers, waterfalls and rivers, and hear from our resident geologist on what makes this island so special. Iceland is rich in human history as well, with Celtic, Norse, and Swedish influences still evident in picturesque villages dotted throughout the countryside. Iceland has no shortage of activities—between birdwatching, hiking, hot spring bathing, and rock-watching (yes, that’s a thing!), you’ll be happily exhausted at the end of each day.

Weather:July is the warmest month in Iceland, but that doesn’t make it particularly warm. Daytime highs will be around 56 degrees, and nighttime lows are around 45. Be sure to bring a warm jacket, hat and gloves! The days are very long this far north, so there will be plenty of daylight to explore!

We'll probably see some rain, and lots of cloud cover. Please pack raingear and waterproof shoes for this tour. An umbrella can be useful but only if the wind is not blowing! The good news? Mosquitoes are not found on Iceland!

Activity levels and restrictions

ReynisfjaraWe'll walk every day since that’s the best way to see Iceland’s terrain. Travelers should be able to walk at least three continuous miles on rugged, slick surfaces. We will encounter stairs, rocks, hills, and unpaved trails. We'll begin each day around 8:00 am, and sometimes will not be at the hotel until early evening. If you have concerns about your ability to walk, stand, and hike for the duration of this trip, please contact Go Learn so that we can advise you.
