Saga travel services Cruise Ships with customized Shore Excursions day tours from ship side on arrival. You can find our tours here below.
In our tours we focus on small groups and personal service. This is why we choose Mini-Buses for max 19 passengers.
Our guides will pick you up at the dock just as you leave your ship. They will hold a Saga Travel sign with the tours name.
All our tours can also be done as Private Tours for you and your group. We then customize the itinerary according to your time in Iceland, interest and expectations.
Saga Travel takes departure times seriously. We guarantee that you will be at the dock at least one hour before your ship's departure.
Absolutely not! Our tab water is very clean and tastes good. We recommend bringing a reusable bottle – you can fill it up at any tab, free of charge.
In the summer, light clothing is often all you need – but always be prepared for both cold and wet weather, all times of the year. The weather can be extremely changeable and tricky to foresee. Icelanders often say, “If you don´t like the weather, just wait 15 minutes.” The local trick to staying warm and prepared for all weather is layers of clothes. In the wintertime, you will need warm shoes and socks!
Fun fact: A favourite pastime is year-round outdoor swimming in countless geothermally heated pools and lagoons, with a typical temperature of 25-28°C. Bring your swimsuit!
You can pay upon arrival on our day tours, but we might not have a seat available. If you book online and pay the deposit of 20% we will secure a seat for you. You then pay the remainder of the cost upon arrival. Either with the guide or at the departure point.
We charge a 20% deposit on our website for securing a seat on our tours. The remainder of the cost (80%) is then charged upon arrival. You can pay with cash or card upon arrival. We accept all major cards and currencies. The deposit is non refundable, but can be forwarded to a new booking (either a new tour or a new date of departure). The reason we do not refund the deposit is that costs for the booking have already been created, we have credit card fees, online advertising costs and service desk employees.
