Whether vacationing to celebrate a big milestone in your relationship or just looking to get away with your partner on an active adventure, Iceland should be on your radar. You may have seen the movies, TV shows and undeniably beautiful photos crediting Iceland as the subject, but Hidden Iceland tours offers more off-the-beaten path excursions through the country. Explore Iceland and enjoy the locale’s most sought-after experiences without feeling like a tourist.
Peruse Hidden Iceland’s Partner Tours, specifically designed for couples looking to explore the idyllic region by land, sea or air.
Explore Iceland’s incredible caves, glaciers and natural ice wonders on a Golden Circle and Ice Cave Jeep Tour; bundle up and book the Ice Cave Discovery Tour; or take a quick daytrip with the Ice Cave Tour. With optional Jeep transportation to and from your tour, the Golden Circle Discovery tour is a more extensive excursion showcasing more of the rugged terrain while being low-impact. The lower activity level is ideal for a full day of sightseeing and exploring, while Ice Cave Discovery includes an hour-and-a-half hike, active exploration of the caves and a moderate level of physical fitness. All ice cave tours offer ample time to enjoy the majestic deep blue hues and free time to take photos and explore.
If wildlife is more you and your partner’s thing, check puffin tour options. Choose from excursions including the Express Puffin Tour observing the beloved birds from Reykjavik on a Whale Safari; the Whales, Puffins and Reykjavík tour extensively exploring the city, surrounding natural beauty and seeking puffins and whales aboard a custom RIB boat; or opt for Express Whales & Midnight Sun excursions during the golden hour while the night light reflects in pink and yellow hues over the water.
In addition to the many other adventure, sightseeing, luxury and idyllic tours available with Hidden Iceland, foodie couples will enjoy the cuisine course. Eat and drink your way through Reykjavik’s bar scene, fine dining establishments, eclectic local cuisine and beer culture along one of three tours. Take the beer track and learn about Icelandic beers while seeing the sights; opt for the food walk and get in your steps while enjoying the local foodie scene; or go for the full Monty with a Reykjavík bar crawl, complete with incredible nightlife and clubbing.
For couples looking for a bit more adventure, incredible sightseeing and an all-around epic getaway, Hidden Iceland boasts itineraries by snowmobile, Jeeps traversing the highlands, motorcycles, snorkeling and even helicopters — there is no wrong way to enjoy the unending beauty of Iceland on your next partner retreat.
