Jane Slade My first experience of Iceland was in the snow and ice and it was -10 degrees, but the warm and cosy atmosphere of the Fish Market restaurant in Reykjavik made me forget the cold. I loved the freshness of their prawns, salted cod and smoked lamb. Heaven! I would certainly recommend this restaurant for anybody holidaying in Iceland!

Iceland Holidays

Shaped by volcanoes, glaciers and tectonic plates slowly being pulled apart, Iceland holidays are an opportunity to see Mother Nature at her most incredible. This is a landscape like no other. In winter you’ll find thundering waterfalls snap frozen, endless snow drifts to be skidooed across and the northern lights dancing across the night sky.

But holidays here don’t have to be hard work. You can sip local schnapps while sat in the bubbling waters of a geothermal pool as the wind whips snow from the tips of volcanic carters around you. During summer slip between the sheets of the earth as you snorkel in the Silfa fissure, watch whales splash through the waves in the northern fjords, or drop into the Thrihnukagigur Volcano under the glow of the midnight sun.

Holidays in Iceland are as dramatic as they are different. Find your favourite below.

Regent Holidays & Iceland

Regent Holidays were one of the first tour operators to specialise in holidays to Iceland.

When we launched our first tours there almost forty years ago, Iceland was a very unusual holiday choice, tourism was very underdeveloped and those visiting needed a spirit of adventure. Over the years the country has developed into a major destination and during the intervening years Regent Holidays has continued to source new activities, hotels and destinations for our clients in this beautiful and majestic region.

Our Iceland Specialists visit Iceland every year and are able to arrange  holidays in Iceland using their own first hand knowledge, backed by great relationships with our partners in Iceland. We can recommend some of our favourite areas and must see places.

We know the best hotels, have our own favourite places to eat, and will also offer advice on when and where you should go to see the famous Northern Lights.

Regent Recommends
With so many incredible natural wonders to explore, it would be easy to bypass the city streets of this compact capital. But to do so would be to miss out on the cultural and creative heart of the nation. Visit the National Centre for Cultural Heritage to discover some of the most important medieval manuscripts in the world, including many of the oldest Icelandic Sagas, or to listen to a traditional recital by local musicians. The National Gallery of Iceland houses the country’s largest collection of works by major Icelandic artists of the 19th and 20th centuries, whilst the Harpa concert hall enjoys performances from the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and Icelandic Opera.
Surrounded by the pounding Atlantic Ocean, exceptional fresh fish dishes abound in Reykjavík’s top restaurants and hotels. Situated in the fashionable 101 area, Restaurant Fish Market is a Regent favourite. The restaurant buys directly from Iceland’s farmers and fishermen to guarantee sustainability and quality, and customers can watch the seasonal dishes being prepared in the open kitchen. For dinner with a view, head to the famous Perlan restaurant whose glass dome is a landmark on the city skyline. Tuck into Icelandic specialities while the top floor restaurant slowly revolves every two hours revealing a full 360° view of the city and surrounding mountains.

To keep their spirits high during the dark winter months, the people of Reykjavík look forward to a host of celebrations and festivals. Perhaps choose to travel in February when the capital welcomes the growing light with the Winter Lights Festival. Not to be missed are the New Year’s Eve celebrations where every family in the city comes out for an evening of music, dancing and one of the largest fireworks displays in the world. Travel on our three-night New Year’s Eve break and follow the fantastic end of year spectacle with a New Year’s Day visit to the Blue Lagoon for a rejuvenating soak in the healing geothermal waters.
