Luxury Holidays & Private Tours in Iceland

Why should you travel to Iceland with us?

Everybody’s Iceland travel photos look the same. Except for the ones our clients take.

That’s because our trips to Iceland are made entirely bespoke and never alight on the exact same itinerary twice. We can do this because we’ve spent years – since the early days of 2005 – getting to know and befriending the locals. From Einar, your guide across mighty Langjökull glacier and the tunnels beneath it, to Rós, who’ll lead you into the maw of dormant Thrihnukagigur volcano. These people – friends of Black Tomato – offer the best possible vantage to immerse yourself in this magnetic, eye-opening country.

What to see and do in Iceland

If you can’t see it here we’ll still plan it for you.


Iceland is a remarkable destination famed for one-of-a-kind landscapes of stunning natural beauty. From exploding geysers to thundering waterfalls and steaming hot pools, treat yourself to a private tour of an island that is as phenomenal as it is fiery. Enjoy all this and more – including the stunning beauty of the Northern Lights – with a luxury holiday to Iceland.


If the majestic humpback whales found in southern Faxaflói, best spotted from a private boat, don’t put the pressures of home into perspective, then the force of nature that is Gullfoss (Golden Falls) Waterfall should do the trick. On average, an astonishing 109 cubic meters a second tumble the 30-plus meters to the river below. Walk through Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Parks ancient rocks where the world’s oldest surviving parliament was born or soak up the fascinating modern history (and beer) at Ölverk micro-brewery. Go off-piste via private helicopter and see this classic route from a more unfamiliar angle.


Book a luxury summer holiday to take advantage of long, sunny days and seize the opportunity to see the island’s wildlife in full force. There are fantastic spots for coastal horse-riding, seal-spotting and whale-watching. A summer trip means seeing Iceland at its greenest, but don’t worry about missing out on the snow. At Deplar Farm you can take to the mountains for a spot of heliskiing that will lead you from the summit all the way down to the sea.


Seeking somewhere for that perfect year-end retreat? Private tours of Iceland give you the chance to enjoy snow-capped surprises at every turn. Hike over a glacier, explore ice caves, marvel at the Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon or hop on a snowmobile to carve your own path through the unforgettable landscape. An elegant country lodge, Hotel Ranga lets you take to the sky with a private helicopter tour before experiencing the Northern Lights from the comfort of your own hot tub.


Iceland is not a destination to see from a tour bus or over the shoulders of the crowds; but one to truly immerse yourself in. Whether that be on the back of a snowmobile as you chase the Northern Lights or from a private boat on Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon, the best way to see Iceland is undoubtedly on a private luxury tour. Taking you into untapped corners of this rugged and wild country for an adventure-fuelled holiday, all without another person in sight, you’ll get to know Iceland unlike anyone else.


Where adventure leads, romance isn’t necessarily unable to follow. Part of the allure of a luxury honeymoon in Iceland lies in its sweeping landscapes, but the reality is those discoveries that can be made within them. Private candlelit dinners in glacial caves, helicopter tours to remote islands and an exclusive corner of the Blue Lagoon to dip into; a honeymoon in Iceland offers something truly unique. Dust it all off with luxury lodges and Iceland proves to be quite the romantic indeed.


The laidback vibe of a charming fishing town blends effortlessly with contemporary edge in the capital city they call the Bay of Smoke. Small yet perfectly formed, Reykjavík can outshine cities three times its size when it comes to art, culture, and cutting-edge music. Should you tire of feasting on street food staples such as pylsur or viewing abstract sculptures from the likes of Sveinsson, we’ll arrange for the option of transport to the glorious mountains and rugged countryside just beyond the city limits. The wild is right on your doorstep here.

Blink luxury camping

Forget glamping. With Blink, we can whisk you away to an area of Þórsmörk (Thórsmörk) most never see and experience the romance of the mighty glaciers from your own made-to-order campsite. Blink can make the unimaginable happen and create unique one-off experiences that will stay with you for a lifetime.

The Northern Lights

Aurora viewing is an essential part of an Icelandic vacation. Best seen during the winter months, our expert guides know the very best spots to catch a glimpse of the kaleidoscopic Aurora Borealis. Live in the lap of luxury at the enchanting Hotel Ranga and you may even be lucky enough to spot the iconic lights on your doorstep.

Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Park

Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Park and the raw, uncut wilderness that surrounds it is unlike anywhere else on earth. Snorkel in waters so clear they could be bottled, descend into the chambers of dormant volcanoes, and marvel at the tectonic plates that were immortalized in bloody battle during Game of Thrones season four.

Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach

With its inky-black sand and mist-covered sea, the otherworldly Reynisfjara Beach could easily be lifted from the pages of a science fiction novel. Unravel its mysteries on a tour of the south coast that also includes Dyrhólaey rock and its local puffins and an action-packed hike across Sólheimajökull glacier where you’ll need to navigate crevasses and a vertical ice wall climb.

The best of Iceland

The Golden Circle

Explore some of Iceland’s most dramatic scenery.

Encompassing the south and southwest of Iceland, the Golden Circle contains some of the country’s most dramatic and iconic geography; from Þingvellir National Park and the Gullfoss waterfall to the geothermal geysers of Haukadalur and the enormous spread of Langjokull Glacier.

The Diamond Circle

An expedition into Iceland’s unknown north.

Even more otherworldly than its southern neighbour, the Diamond Circle – in the less-visited North of Iceland – contains such spectacles as Goðafoss (the waterfall of the gods), sprawling Myvatn Lake, and the echoing, black-red rocks of Hljóðaklettar.

The Westman Islands

The last eruption on this moody archipelago happened in 1973.

The remote, volcanic archipelago of Vestmannaeyjar contains an evocative museum documenting the eruption which destroyed much of the original settlement. Explore red mountains and watch for whales. Or tread the black beaches of Isole Vetsman before enjoying some of the country’s most innovative cuisine.
