The Helena Travel team offers Icelandic Tours that are Icelandic through and through. Helena Travel´s emphasis is to invite people to step in – experience, and get close to the Icelandic nation´s “Psyche.” You are invited to take an Icelandic tour to see the country´s most cherished places. We´ll avoid the crowds by taking you to places that are not commonly visited. And to the places that are commonly visited we take you outside of peak time or during a midsummer night.
Experiencing the natural Icelandic landscape is a passionate experience, and it is about your personal relationship with mother earth. Nature, food, fine art and music – this is our speciality. We will design a tailor-made package for you, based on what you like the most to explore the best places to see in Iceland.
Do you like the mountains or outdoor sports? We can offer you things like paragliding or diving and the best things to do in Iceland. Or do you prefer to take things slowly? Would you like to stay where you won´t see anyone else, or do you fancy the vibrant city life? There are locations in Iceland, only accessible by foot. You can also opt for the tailor made private tours (our bestsellers). We love to try something new, to enter the uncertainty with you. Safety is our first priority though – rest assured, you are safe with us! We cater for families and small groups (up to 8 people) in our Benz Sprinter. We won´t be happy until we have made sure you´ll bring back memories from Iceland, that will stay with you for the rest of your life! We are waiting for your email – we will get back to you in day!
