GOLF TOURS

Golf tours
 

Golf in Iceland? You bet! Iceland has around 90 golf courses, not bad for a nation of only 350.000 people. Usually the courses are closed during winter until around mid-May and are open until mid-October, weather permitting.

 

For our golf tour services, we have selected some of the best courses in Reykjavik and its vicinity, enabling you to be based in Reykjavik and play a new course each day.

 

All our selected courses have their own unique characteristics but there are some features that all courses in Iceland share in common:

  • They are ‘natural’, meaning they follow the landscape and are not excessively engineered.

  • They are all ‘open’ in the sense that you have great views of the natural surroundings from almost all holes.

  • This ‘openness’ of the courses means that wind always comes into play, adding to the challenge.

 

Have you played golf at midnight? No? Well, that is something that should be on your bucket-list. And now you have the chance to tick that off your list. We can arrange midnight rounds at all the selected golf courses.

 

Want to play more than one course per day? No problem. We can put together ‘packages’ that include two or three courses per day.

 

Want to try something really unique? Two of our selected courses (Oddur Golf Course and Keilir Golf Course) are partially located in lava fields and one (Hveragerdi Golf Course) actually has geothermal hot springs on the course itself, offering surroundings and challenges that most golfers have never experienced before.

 

You can also easily combine golf and sight-seeing. See our selection of day tours or ask us to put something together based on your time frame and interests.

Travelling with a spouse or partner that does not play golf? Let us take care of them, we will take them on a tailor-made sight-seeing tour while you play your round. No worries, we promise to be back before you finish the 18th.
