Layover Tours in Iceland

Stopping for a short time in Iceland? These tours are perfect for you!

Stopover in Iceland?

A long stopover is sometimes an unfortunate addition to a long flight but, it doesn't have to be a bad thing, not in Iceland, at least. A stopover usually means waiting around for hours on end, until your next flight departs but, in Iceland, a stopover creates a golden opportunity for you to experience something extraordinary, a glimpse of Iceland.

You might wonder: "What can I do in Iceland on a stopover?" or "What tours are available from Keflavík Airport?". Well, we've compiled a list of tours that are all perfect for a glimpse of Iceland.

Below you'll find a list of various tours with pick up from the Reykjanes peninsula (the area where the Icelandic International Airport is located) and they all take only a few hours.

Hop on a bus and experience the popular Golden Circle route, burn some fuel on an ATV near Grindavík and ride through lunar landscapes or discover the hidden gems of the Reykjanes peninsula with a local guide.
