Hit Iceland specializes in quality tours to natural wonders. We take our clients to many of the better-known places and also to the much less known.  Highly exciting places out of the mainstream.  We explain the geology in addition to our fascinating history and how the mixture of both marked our culture. The GHC cocktail that has defined us from the time of settlement. Our tours are very local and personal with a texture that also gives a lot of elbow room to ask all kinds of questions about the country and its residents.  Designed for those who want to know the many different and odd things about this tiny island and its people north in the cold by the arctic circle. 

Skálholt, the former Episcopal see, and farm, in the Southern Region in Iceland is one of the most important historical places in the country.  For ages, the Iceland was a rural agricultural society with almost no form of a significant urban area.  The Church was a powerful institution both socially and economically in addition to its main spiritual and religious role. Accordingly, Skálholt became a center and played the role of a capital of Iceland for centuries.

Understandably most of our visitors in Iceland come here to see the natural wonders, waterfalls, hot springs, glacier lagoons, and other fascinating attractions. This requires a lot of traveling around the country, either in your own vehicle, a rent a car, with a tour operator or on a bus. One of the interesting things many visitors forget when organizing a trip to Iceland is to take the time to visit some of the highly attractive towns and villages around the coastline.

There are villages with a fascinating history like Fáskrúðsfjörður and Bíldudalur
