Gay Iceland tour Warm up to Iceland on our annual gay winter getaway. This all-gay Icelandic escape makes the most of the island nation’s winter season. Travellers explore the snowy countryside on a Golden Circle tour with stops at Gullfoss Waterfall and the Great Geysir. They’ll surmount a glacier and even check out the frigid Black Sand Beaches. The tour heats up with a steamy dip in the Blue Lagoon. Perhaps most importantly, this escape includes a chance to check out The Northern Lights—one of travel’s great treats.

Can’t make it in March? Consider our Iceland Countryside and Reykjavik Gay Pride Tour departing in August.

Iceland Winter Weekend Gay Getaway Tour Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrive Reykjavík, Iceland
Halló! Welcome to Iceland. Today you’ll meet your fellow travellers, along with your local gay Iceland guide at approximately 5PM, before we ramble through Reykjavík by foot.

We’ll then head out for an included welcome dinner at one the nation’s best restaurants.

If the jet lag hasn’t yet dragged you down, we’ll then hit the town and throw it down.

Hotel: Alda Hotel, Reykjavik

Day 2 - Reynisfjara / Sólheimajökull Glacier
Today begins bright and early with our south shore safari. In this magnificent part of Iceland we’ll encounter black sand beaches, mythical rock formations, wondrous waterfalls and many farms (where we may even get to meet some small but sensational Icelandic horses).

We’ll even walk the famous Sólheimajökull Glacier.
Please note: this can be a difficult activity for anyone with mobility issues.

After our glacier trek we’ll check into our hotel for the evening, with dinner and local delicacies to kick off our stay.

The rest of the night is yours to indulge in the hotel’s amazing hot tubs...and hopefully see the Northern Lights!

Hotel: Frost and Fire Boutique Hotel, Hveragerdi

You’ll be mesmerized by the magic and rage of Gullfoss Waterfall.

And finally, we’ll visit the ‘Great Geysir’, the first geyser known to modern Europeans.

We’ll then return to Reykjavík for an optional dinner, followed by an Icelandic house party…which is only a warm-up for a big night out on the town.

Trip Notes

Iceland Visa
A visa is not typically required for American, Australian, British and Canadian citizens travelling to Iceland for fewer than 90 days. There may be exceptions, and all visas are the responsibility of the traveller.

Culture Shock
Tourism in Iceland is well-developed enough to afford many of the luxuries of home. Nearly everyone speaks English, and locals are very outgoing and friendly.

Local LGBT Scene
While the scene is small, and centred around Reykjavík, being gay or lesbian in Iceland is a complete non-issue (they’ve already had a lesbian prime minister).

Summer in Iceland is pleasant but chilly. Daytime highs average in the low 60's F (15C), with evening temperatures as low as 50F (10C). Rain is always a possibility, so bring along an umbrella for the city, a waterproof outer layer, and a few thin layers to keep you warm.

Required Vaccinations
Based on the entry requirements for Iceland, there are no vaccinations needed for entry. To determine if you should take preventative measures to reduce the risk of illness, you should consult your doctor or a travel medical clinic, as we cannot provide vaccination

You will need an international travel plug/adapter for type F sockets.

All of our hotels will have Wi-Fi access, so feel free to tweet, pin, post and share your experience with your friends and family at home. They might be a tad jealous!

Travel Insurance
For everybody’s peace of mind, medical travel insurance is required on all Out Adventures tours. At a minimum, your travel insurance must provide cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal liability, with a minimum medical coverage of US $200,000.

A Special Note On Arrival Transfers
All Iceland departures include arrival/departure transfers via a local shared shuttle bus, known as the FlyBus. Three weeks before departure you will be given a ticket to board the FlyBus. You will also receive detailed instructions on where to catch the bus, how to board and where to get off. If you’d prefer a private transfer, please contact our sales team for pricing.

To keep things flexible, not all meals are included in the trip price. Although we typically dine together so that everybody can get a taste of everything, feel free to explore on your own…your guide will always have some restaurant recommendations.

The local currency is the Icelandic Krona. We recommend carrying local currency for small purchases, but credit cards are accepted at most upscale restaurants, and at hotels. We also recommend carrying about $400 USD to be used in case of an emergency, or if your credit/ATM cards are placed on hold.

If you are happy with services throughout your trip, a tip is recommended. Tipping details will be provided in your final trip documentation, however we recommend budgeting approximately $80 USD.

What to bring
Our adventures entail carrying your own luggage on occasion. And while you’ll never schlep far, things can quickly get costlier than a celebrity breakup if you don’t keep your baggage under 20kg/44lb thanks to costly surcharges on domestic flights. You should also bring something smaller for day trips to carry water, your camera, and any souvenirs you find along the way.

Optional Activities
Every Out Adventure offers optional excursions that are not included in price of this trip. Please see the daily itinerary in your final pre-trip packet to learn what’s available.


Alda Hotel, Reykjavik


Starting / Finishing Point Hotel
Alda Hotel, Reykjavik
At Alda Hotel Reykjavik, we combine a fantastic location, on Reykjavik‘s main shopping street, Laugavegur, with a harmonious atmosphere. Our boutique-style hotel, where rooms vary in shapes and sizes, offer a calm escape.

The idea of Alda Hotel is to provide tranquil space in the middle of the city to take in and process the expressions from the adventures experienced in Iceland. We are located on the upper end of Laugavegur (otherwise known as the quiet part), around a 15-minute walk from the center of the city. We are close to shops, cafés, and restaurants but away from the central nightlife area.
