Like most mammals, reindeer were imported into Iceland but were a rather late addition to the Icelandic fauna. They were brought to the country in the late 18th century and were only able to survive wild in East Iceland. The best time to see herds of reindeer is in winter and spring since that is when they migrate from the Highlands down into the valleys in search of food. Smaller groups can still be found all year round even though many deer stay high in the mountains in the summertime. 

Join an expert guide who will help you seek out the wild reindeer based on local knowledge and tips from farmers and other travellers for the best results.

You will travel in a 4x4 Super-Jeep with a maximum capacity of 6 passengers. This ensures small groups, and with the travel style of slow travel, the experience becomes heightened. Small groups also decrease the disturbance to the reindeer, allowing you to get quite close before they are scared away.

During the tour, you will be driven around the stunning landscape of East Iceland. The routes vary each time depending on the most recent sighting of reindeer in the area.  While driving around your guide will help you make the most of the ride and stop at some interesting places along the way.
