Iceland at a Glance

Can I travel to Iceland this year?

Iceland is open to American travelers. Visitors with proof of full vaccination (Moderna or Pfizer only) or evidence of prior infection may enter the country. Arrivals will undergo one test for Covid-19 upon arrival and may proceed to accommodations to await the negative result. We recommend that any interested travelers connect with a Zicasso Iceland travel specialist for further information on entry requirements and trip planning advice due to incredible demand.

Entry requirements are subject to change, and your Zicasso travel specialist can provide updated information at the time of your inquiry.

How far in advance should I plan a Iceland vacation?

When to book your Iceland trip depends on when you wish to travel. The best accommodations and guides in Iceland may have limited supply due to increased demand for new trips in 2021 and 2022 compounded by postponed trips from 2020.

We usually recommend that travelers book six to nine months ahead when traveling during peak season in Iceland. With the possibility of limited availability for guides, tours, and accommodations in 2021 and 2022, we now suggest booking 10 to 12 months in advance. Planning ahead will secure the kind of trip you prefer on your timeline, from witnessing the Midnight Sun to searching for the Northern Lights.

Last-minute travel is also possible, and your Zicasso travel specialist can help you put together an exceptional vacation experience.

How do I plan my trip to Iceland?

You can book your next Iceland trip with Zicasso for travel in 2021 and 2022. Any travel to someplace new inspires plenty of questions but the uncertainty surrounding traveling between countries after Covid-19 may demonstrate how travel has changed and new details we must consider.

“Is the Blue Lagoon open?” “How will I travel the Golden Circle?” “Will I be able to go whale watching?” “How will I travel between Reykjavik and Akureyri?” “Are the ice caves open?” “Do I need a negative Covid-19 test before returning home; if so, how can I get one?” Your travel specialist can answer these questions and more before you book your trip. Your travel expert can also help handle any type of emergency that may arise during your trip — from a missed tour to an accommodation change.

If you would like to plan a trip to Iceland, you can fill out Zicasso’s Trip Request Form to speak with an Iceland travel specialist.

Best Time to Visit Iceland

The best time to visit Iceland is between July and August and again between February and March for seeing the Northern Lights.

Iceland is truly a year-round destination with each season offering unique experiences and opportunities. The scenery is often black and white because of lava fields and glaciers but can shift to fluorescent green moss and blue ice.

What to Consider When Traveling Through Iceland

When traveling on an Iceland tour, your safety is always an important consideration. Zicasso also considers other factors, such as travel logistics and accessibility. The following information covers specific travel considerations to help create a stress-free travel experience.

Is Iceland Safe for Travel?

Iceland is very safe for travelers and is often defined as a crime-free country. When traveling with a knowledgeable guide who understands the land, weather, and roads, you can indulge in the surrounding beauty and culture of the island. The most important safety rule when traveling in Iceland is to respect nature.

When on a self-drive tour, winter can be difficult for those who are not familiar with the roads or weather of Iceland. The conditions can be precarious in winter even for those who understand the weather and the possibilities of high winds or icy roads. Weather conditions are the biggest concern when in Iceland because of how they can impact driving conditions, such as on gravel roads, which are common around the island.

Which airports should I be looking at?

The best airport to fly in and out of when visiting Iceland is Keflavik International Airport (KEF), which is located approximately 31 miles southwest of Reykjavik. Iceland has upwards of 464 authorized domestic airports, but the only international airport is Keflavik Airport.

Can Zicasso help me with flights?

Zicasso Flights is an international air ticketing service that eliminates the stress of finding and booking the right flights for your upcoming vacation. By employing the same personalized service you can expect from planning a trip with Zicasso, our competitive flight pricing, 24x7 service and support, and complimentary consultation of routing versus pricing with an expert flight specialist make finding the perfect flight for your trip effortless.

Does Zicasso assist with travel insurance?

You’ve booked your dream vacation, now protect it with travel insurance. A wide range of factors can leave your vacation in limbo. Medical emergencies, inclement weather, and unexpected cancellations can cause turmoil for your trip, so in the unlikely event of a disaster, get the travel insurance coverage that provides peace of mind.
