Iceland Group Overland Tour

This tour includes:

Guide

1 driver/guide is supplied and one cook is supplied on this tour.

Meals

16 breakfasts and 16 evening meals are provided during this tour. For lunch we usually stop at a supermarket or a restaurant giving you a chance to taste the local fare too. Lunch is at your own expense. When it comes to cooking we will divide ourselves up into groups of 3 or 4 people (depending on group size) who will help prepare the day’s meals and clean up at the end alongside the Madventure cook. Eating well is a very important factor on our tours and good food is vital for everyone’s health and well-being so the cook will always strive to prepare healthy, wholesome and plentiful breakfasts & dinners. Fresh food is generally available daily so we try to eat meat and vegetables for most main evening meals. We do also cater for vegetarians but not to vegans and we cannot cater for fussiness or personal lifestyle dietary choices. In these group situations everybody must appreciate we cannot cater for individual likes and dislikes. Cleanliness plays an important role throughout this tour and your crew will make sure an acceptable level of general hygiene is maintained throughout your journey to ensure the wellbeing of the group.

Transport

We travel in private 4x4 vehicles on this tour, usually with 4 people per vehicle. Sometimes we use a private 4x4 minibus if the group is larger. We are equipped with a good kitchen which includes all cutlery, plates, cups, pots & pans, utensils, gas cooker, tables, etc. Comfortable fold up benches are provided for seating and we also have a large cook tent to keep us dry on those rainy days. The vehicles have a 12V power supply for charging any of your personal travel equipment such as telephones, tablets, headlamps, etc. We carry a comprehensive first aid kit for emergencies but we do recommend you bring your own for general use.

Accommodation

You will spend 100% of your time on this tour in your tent camping. We use designated campsites with amenities every night on this tour so you will have shower facilities & ablutions available daily. From past experience we have found that people prefer to supply their own tents as they are then not forced to share and they can pick a tent that suits their needs. As a general rule try and choose a good quality, lightweight, compact, waterproof & windproof tent that is easy to erect, take down and carry.

Insurance

It is compulsory that every person who travels with Madventure obtain travel insurance for the complete duration of the tour. Proof of travel insurance must be shown before joining a tour. You may be covered under your credit card’s travel insurance so it might be worth checking with your credit card provider first. There are various travel insurance companies to choose from and a Google search will bring up a vast selection but for a comprehensive reliable policy that includes Covid Cover and Medical Repatriation we recommend a London based company named Campbell Irvine, Telephone: +44 20 7938 1734, https://microsite.campbellirvinedirect.com/madventure/. They are familiar with what we do so if you mention Madventure and the tour you are travelling on they should be able to provide excellent cover for you. For people based in North America a company called Allianz offers good cover – Telephone: +1 866 884 3556, www.allianztravelinsurance.com If you choose to obtain your travel insurance through another company please ensure you read the small-print and make sure your policy includes Covid Cover and Medical Repatriation.
