Hey Iceland (The Icelandic Farm Holidays) offers a wide range of self-drive packages, guided tours and day tours all year round in addition to a vast accommodation network of bed and breakfasts, country hotels, self-catering cottages and apartments and traditional farms all around Iceland.
Each accommodation has its own character but all share an emphasis on personal service in tranquil countryside locations. Categories range from simple yet comfortable rooms with shared bathrooms to more elaborate rooms with private bathrooms. Local food is often available, also activities such as horse riding tours, guided walks or a chance to take part in farm activities.
Originally founded by farmers in 1980 as The Icelandic Farm Holidays Association, Hey Iceland is a membership-based operation founded by farmers. The Icelandic Farm Holidays Association founded a travel agency by the same name in 1991 to handle the growing number of bookings and promote the members’ services as the official booking office. The travel agency is still majority-owned by the farmers themselves, meaning that profits stay local. Members need to fulfill strict quality standards and are inspected on a regular basis.
In 2016 the name of the travel agency was changed to Hey Iceland to reflect better the diverse range of tours, activities, and services provided through the network of accommodations that represent more than 5.000 beds and form the base of operation.
