- Day tours and excursion bookings including ferry services as part of air/land package bookings. IST has agreements with three of the top tour guides in Iceland and can book customized, private day and multi-day tours.
Independent Fly/Drive Itineraries are suitable for travel between April and October - during other times of year, travel along the ring road can be arranged but weather conditions change frequently and driving can be a challenge, particularly at high elevations. These sample itineraries are good starting points for working with IST to develop the ideal travel plan for independent minded travelers. Whether you wish to travel the ring road with a rental car or concentrate on one region of the country, we have all the answers you'll need.
