Shaped by towering volcanoes, immense glaciers and tectonic plates that slowly pull the rugged landscape apart, Iceland holidays are an opportunity to see Mother Nature at her most incredible. Teetering on the edge of the Arctic, only a three-hour flight from the UK, this staggeringly beautiful country is home to a variety of landscapes like no other – among them some of the world’s greatest natural wonders. And the best thing about Iceland? No matter which season you visit in, there's always a huge array of adventures to be had and amazing natural environments to explore.

With an Iceland winter holiday you'll find thundering waterfalls frozen still, endless snow drifts awaiting snowmobile journeys across and the northern lights dancing across the night sky, with an aurora season that can last from September until April. Our South Iceland Winter Break is perfect for first-time visitors keen to see the aurora borealis and the natural environment coated in snow. Alternatively, Iceland summer holidays allow visitors to dive into the crystal-clear glacier waters between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates, embark on whale-watching journeys to spy feeding humpback whales, stroll across otherworldly black sand beaches and take a soak in the steaming, natural waters of a geothermal lagoon.

Reykjavik, the compact and charming capital, offers visitors a friendly welcome and a world-class culinary scene, and its array of varied accommodation and proximity to the iconic sites of the Golden Circle – Gullfoss Waterfall, Strokkur Geysir and Thingvellir National Park – makes it the perfect place for a city break, or the beginning of an independent fly-drive holiday exploring the dramatic coast. Just a short flight from the UK, Iceland is also the perfect destination for a short break or weekend getaway, no matter the season.

Map

Reykjavík
Top Destination
Reykjavík
The world’s northernmost capital, Reykjavík offers a thriving cultural scene with an abundance of first class restaurants, stylish galleries and historic landmarks. But it’s the incredible natural wonders that surround Reykjavík which make it more than your average city break destination.
Myvatan
Top Destination
Myvatan
Lake Myvatn is the region's biggest draw; created by a large basaltic lava eruption 2,300 years ago, dotted with islands and surrounded by black lava fields, cones and calderas, as well as wetlands which attract huge numbers of ducks. The area's Nature Baths are a less touristy alternative to the Blue Lagoon.
Golden Circle
Top Destination
Golden Circle
Iceland's famous Golden Circle route visits the popular natural attractions of Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss Waterfall and the Geysir geothermal fields, all of which are easily accessible from Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik.
Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon
Top Destination
Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon
A highlight of any visit to South Iceland, Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon is an immense natural ice lagoon where icebergs of all shapes and sizes calve from the vast Vatnajokull Glacier to float in the calm lagoon waters. The lagoon reflects the blue skies when clear and the icebergs gleam a brilliant white.
Blue Lagoon
Top Destination
Blue Lagoon
Just 20 minutes drive from Keflavík Airport, or 40 minutes from Reykjavík, the Blue Lagoon is iconic. Situated in the middle of a black lava field, the mineral-rich, geothermal seawater fills the natural spa with its iconic bright blue water. Known for its healing qualities, the warm water is rich in active ingredients including algae and white silica mud.
Dalvik
Ella Stearns's Recommendation
Dalvik
Nestled in a fjord on the northern tip of Iceland, the small fishing village of Dalvik is the ideal place to embark on a whale watching adventure. Board traditional oak boats, to spot the marine life as you head out towards the Arctic Circle. Dolphins and whales - including humpbacks and minkes - are spotted on 98% of tours.

Ida Marinova
If this is your first holiday in Iceland, we recommend that you plan to come in winter. The sweeping snowscapes, set against the sparkling twilight is the iconic backdrop that has made Iceland famous. Whether you are snowmobiling across a glacier or taking in the snowfall from the cozy confines of Stofan cafe (our favourite pit stop in Reykavik for a slice of cake and coffee), the country looks its best when dressed in white. Of course the winter months are the right time to search out the spectacular show that is the Northern Lights.

Ida's Tips
1
East Iceland is a hikers' paradise with volcanic terrain, walking trails, hidden waterfalls and mountains.
2
Spend a night or two at the Hotel Ranga in the winter and watch the northern lights from the outdoor hot tubs.
3
To really get up close with nature, step inside a man-made ice cave to walk inside the Langjokull Glacier.
