Short Description

Experience the wonder of Iceland! This 4-night trip will give you an incredible introduction to the picturesque Icelandic countryside, as well as a peek into the history and bustling daily life of Reykjavik. Scramble over lava fields, marvel at black sand beaches, watch geysers explode from the earth, hike through glaciers, soak in steamy hot springs, and hunt for the world-renowned Auroras. This exciting trip is jam-packed with bucket-list activities to cross off and gorgeous locations to photograph. Two nights in the city and two nights in the countryside make the ideal introduction to a country so beautiful, you'll want to return again and again.

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.

There are a lot of options to choose from. There was so issue getting the correct reservation number for the hotel in order to call the hotel and get information from them. It was frustrating that Great Value didn't tell me there was separate information for the hotel outside of them but overall this was a good value trip and I had a blast! Would definitely use this site again!

GVV worked with us to reschedule our vacation package due to the pandemic. It was a simple and easy process at no extra charge. We went to Miami and Key West. We were pleasantly surprised at how wonderful our trip was. Flight, rental car and accommodations were top of the line. Thank you GVV. We can’t wait to book our next trip with you.

Great trip for a great price, will definitely be doing business with the company again.

I’m sure it wasn’t the company’s fault that half of the US decided to visit Honolulu at the same time we did!

I can not say enough great things about this company. We were supposed to go leave for Scotland and 5 days before our trip Covid happened. Not only did they give us all our credit back (they didn't have to do that because we didn't buy an insurance package), they also are giving us until the end of 2022 to use the credit. So there is no rush!! All the agents, especially Claudia, have been nothing but pleasant to work with. Look no further and book with them now!
