Jóna Sparey has been organising and conducting tours to Iceland, her Mother’s homeland and to many other places around the world since 1985.

Currently on offer are holidays to Iceland in winter and summer plus fantastic trips to The Shetland Isles, Faroe Islands, Azores, Madeira, Southern Ireland, Hidden France and Romandy Switzerland,  Little Trains of the Pyrenees and Sweden.

Every aspect of each holiday is carefully planned with a friendly approach and attention to detail. The tours are always small groups with experienced and knowledgeable guides and drivers and offer a unique blend of exploration, education, adventure, enjoyment and congenial company.

2021 and 2022 Tour details now available.

SPECIAL: Celebrate New Year in Iceland on our super special New Year Tour 30 December 2021 to 10 January 2022. Enjoy a New Year’s Eve dinner at a top Reykavik restaurant then afterwards watch the amazing firework display.

The following day the tour heads out west to the rarely visited Western Wilderness and the opportunity to experience the Aurora Borealis.

A once in a lifetime opportunity, this tour is only arranged approximately every 3 years.



The long awaited eruption occurred on Friday 19th March.

Since this is not a lava ash volcano, it is less likely to affect flights and is far enough away from Reykjavik (26 miles), so should not cause any problems.

The volcano’s activity fluctuates frequently as it dies down completely and erupts again producing red fountains and lava flows.

We will continue to update the website should the situation change.


Jóna Tours is a small travel company which has a unique place in the tourist industry.
Based on personal organisation with emphasis on attention to detail in all aspects of the holiday.


Special attention is given to single people, either travelling on their own or for some who may wish to team up with another member.
