Travelers posing on an Iceland tour for women

Dreaming of embarking on an Iceland tour as a solo female traveler?

Solo adventures are a thrill, no doubt, but let’s keep it real—it can be a bit intimidating! Especially when those dreams involve conquering glaciers and riding wild rapids. 

At Canyon Calling, our itineraries are created by women, for women, and led by women.

So don’t worry, friend—this is our jam. 😎

With over two decades of leading fearless women around the globe, we’ve gathered some wild wisdom to make your Icelandic dreams a reality.

In this blog, we’re sharing our top 4 tips for your solo trip to Iceland. Ready to melt those nerves away? Let’s roll!

Tip #1: Opt for a women only tour.

If you’re craving an adventure but lack a travel companion, consider signing up for a women only Iceland tour. Groups like this are where solo female travelers come together as strangers to travel in sisterhood, and part as friends. 

And we mean it—no dudes! Let’s paint a picture…

Close your eyes and imagine conquering white-water rapids without a mansplainer in sight. It’s like a breath of fresh air, isn’t it? Time to ditch the dudes, don’t you think? Just for a bit. 😉

When you opt for a women only tour to Iceland, you’ll hike glaciers, tackle rapids, ride gentle Icelandic horses, and do it all surrounded by a tribe of supportive women cheering you on. So, as you’re glacier hiking for the first time, you’ll feel lifted up and confident—not self-conscious.

The company of women is good for your soul—especially when traveling abroad. Empowerment beats mansplaining any day!

Tip #2: On your trip to Iceland, travel with a small group of women.

Why get lost in a sea of faces when you can share your adventure with a handful of amazing women? Navigating Iceland’s wonders is a breeze when you’re part of a tiny squad. It’s so much easier to zip around to hidden gems when you’re not part of a massive tour group. 

The best part? Smaller groups are better for inspiring connections, laughter, and lifelong friendships. Dive into the Icelandic magic with your mini-crew and amplify the fun!

Tip #3: Want peace of mind on your Iceland tour? Travel with experienced, knowledgeable, and safety-certified guides.

Iceland has surprises around every corner, and your guides will be your ultimate adventure BFFs. They’re not just enthusiasts—they’re certified pros dedicated to keeping your journey safe and spectacular. With their local know-how, you can wander worry-free, knowing every step is backed by a guide who’s as passionate about Iceland as you are. Safety first, adventure always!
