Booking a Single Room
All of our group tours are planned and operated on a twin-share basis, meaning that the standard cost is based either on individual travellers sharing accommodation with another group member of the same sex, or people who book together sharing accommodation.
Please refer to the tour notes where the single room option availability is detailed on a night by night basis for this tour, and the price for the available nights is detailed on the dates & prices tab by departure date.
For Self-Guided trips the Single Room supplement offers the option of a single room each and is charged per person. The Single Room supplement also applies to the third person in a party of three that will be accommodated in a single room.
While in Reykjavik we use a hotel which is located in the centre of the city and within walking distance from Hallgrímskirkja (the City Cathedral) and the bars and restaurants of downtown. The accommodation has great views of the city from its roof top balcony café and also boasts a bar and Wi-Fi. In south Iceland, we stay on a renovated country farm lodge (which used to host life stock) with shared facilities. This is a charming place and great for kids with a variety of animal's on the site to meet including horses, goats and other farm animals. In Snaefellsnes, we stay at a guesthouse with en-suite facilities located on the southern side of the peninsula. A unique swimming pool with warm geothermal waters of up to 35°C is within walking distance. We return to the Reykjavik area and stay the last two evenings in a Viking styled hotel which has en-suite facilities. The decor of the rooms and general interior is styled on a Viking and West Nordic style with art and crafts from Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands.
Due to the recent considerable rise in tourism in Iceland, hotels are experiencing very high demand for rooms and there have been some occurrences of overbookings, which are often notified to us at a late stage. For this reason, we would like to emphasise that hotel accommodation is subject to change, which may result in the need to alter your night stops with little or no notice. Explore are working closely with our team on the ground to minimise changes to accommodation, although in the case of unavoidable hotel changes, we will endeavour to always provide accommodation of the same or a higher standard.
