There's so much more to Iceland than Reykjavik and the south west. Travellers savvy enough to venture into Iceland's northern reaches are rewarded with staggering Arctic landscapes, volcanic peaks overlooking deep lakes, and quaint, colourful fishing villages. This short tailor-made holiday starts in the capital before flying north to the pretty town of Husavik.
From here, old lava fields, sweeping valleys and spectacular waterfalls are within easy reach and whale watching opportunities from boat trips are excellent. Visitors havea very good chance of spotting minke, pilot, sperm, humpback or orca whale as wild pods move through the waters to feed on huge fish shoals.
During the day, landscapes are dotted with beautifully restored turf farms and at night, the dark winter skies come alive with the flickering northern lights. You're away from the bright lights of Reykjavik here, so the rural countryside offers unobstructed viewings. Speak to a Regent Travel Specialist to tailor-make your stay or book optional excursions, such as evening northern lights tours and tickets to the Blue Lagoon thermal spas.
Arrive Reykjavik and transfer to the Hotel Reykjavík Natura. Spend the rest of the day at leisure exploring Iceland's picturesque capital or relaxing at the famous Blue Lagoon on an optional excursion.
