Editor’s Take

What to Look For in Iceland Travel Reviews

Most trip reviews tend to focus on some or all of these 5 key areas, not all of which may be relevant to you: the tour guide, travel company, service level, country or countries traveled in, and the trip itinerary. Remember, just because you see a 1 star review doesn’t necessarily mean that person disliked the country.

Reviews for tours in Iceland are mainly positive, in the 4 and 5 star range.

Iceland has grown rapidly in popularity, so the crowds are almost unavoidable unless you travel in the middle of shoulder season. Traveling with a guide is one of the best ways to help the crowds feel less intense.

Your Iceland tour guide may not be a local every time, but positive reviews almost always comment on the their guide’s expert knowledge and ability to expand on the unique landscapes and natural phenomena in Iceland.

Safety is another primary concern when traveling in Iceland, as this is a very popular destination for adventure travel. In particular you will probably have 1 or 2 quite long drives and depending on the time of year the roads could be wet or icy. 

Another important thing to bear in mind is that Iceland is very expensive. Be sure to go prepared for this, as not all meals or activities may be included in your tour price.

The service level on your Iceland tour will depend on the tour theme, but most Iceland tours have an active focus. Accommodations are mainly value or premium, comfortable and clean, yet relatively basic amenities.

Some negative Iceland tour reviews comment on the sights that weren’t included on the itinerary. Due to Iceland’s popularity, some travelers may have been under the impression that all the major sites on listicles and from inspiring photographs would be included on the tour.

While it’s true that a number of Iceland’s main attractions can be seen on a short trip, some other are much farther away from the main tourist track. So depending on your tours duration, be sure to look closely at the itinerary to make sure everything you want to see is included.
