Exploring Iceland during COVID19

Posted by on 13 Aug 2020

Iceland during Covid

When the whole world has been turned upside down by a pandemic, the way we travel has changed as well.

We here at Gray Line Iceland started offering a few shared day tours again on July 1st, and on August 1st we were able to add our Airport Express transfers to the schedule as well. We take the advice of Icelandic authorities seriously regarding precautions, since the health and wellbeing of our staff and passengers are very important to us.

Thingvellir in August

So what we are doing is this:

-We don‘t fill every seat on our vehicles, making it easier to keep empty seats between people who aren‘t traveling together
-Face masks are required – bring your own or buy one from us
-Hand sanitizer is available for everyone
-All surface areas are disinfected frequently every day

What you can do is this:

-Wash your hands, properly, with soap
-Practice social distancing when possible
-Use face masks
-Be careful
when coughing or sneezing
-And again, wash your hands!

Our tour selection is not yet back to what it used to be, but we still have a pretty good and varied selection in August. Our all-time bestseller Golden Circle Classic is available every day, with visits to Gullfoss Waterfall, Geysir geothermal area and Þingvellir National Park. The South Iceland & Black Beach tour is on Mondays and Fridays, and the combined South Iceland Adventure tours (Glacier Hike, ATV ride and Paragliding) are available on these days as well. Other tours with set departure dates in August include South Coast & Glacier Lagoon, Game of Thrones, Snæfellsnes National Park, Reykjavik City tour and Landmannalaugar. And as always at this time of year, we will be starting our Northern Lights Mystery tour again later in the month!

So as you can see, there is plenty to choose from. And even if you aren't sure yet about joining tours with other visitors from around the world, we have private tours just for you.
