With natural wonders round every corner, it's not hard to see why Iceland is constantly growing in popularity. 

The famous Golden Circle makes Iceland the destination of a lifetime. Visiting Iceland means viewing:

  • Waterfalls,

  • Volcanoes,

  • Black-sand beaches

and of course, the potential for the Northern Lights.

The capital Reykjavik, the most northerly capital in the world is a friendly city that offers excellent cuisine, or visit the Blue Lagoon, which offers total relaxation on your Iceland holiday.

Icelandic Landscapes

Standing proud and wild in the North Atlantic, Iceland is home to landscapes like no other. Natural wonders seem to hide around every corner and the northern lights dance high above throughout the winter.

Thanks to airlines like Icelandair, it's easy to get to from the UK too, so all these marvels are just a three-hour flight away. Iceland weather can be changeable, but its beauty is not dimmed whether you're exploring in sun, snow or wind.

No matter which season you travel in, you'll find plenty to keep you and your loved ones entertained in Iceland. Wonder at crashing waterfalls, take a Golden Circle tour, retreat to a luxury hotel, or simply rent a car and get out on the amazing roads.

Types of Iceland Holidays

On an Iceland winter holiday, you'll discover expansive glaciers just waiting for a snowmobile trip 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 at the Silfra Fissure, to 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. No matter what you're looking for, Iceland tours will offer landscapes to steal your breath and excursions sure to make you smile.

Reykjavik is a compact and charming capital that offers visitors a friendly welcome and a world-class culinary scene. Iceland food is just getting better and better, so why not explore the food scene with us? 

Reykjavík's credentials as a superb destination are further bolstered by its proximity to the iconic sites of the Golden Circle:

  • Gullfoss Waterfall,
  • Strokkur Geysir 
  • Thingvellir National Park

This makes it the perfect place for a city break, or the beginning of an independent fly-drive holiday exploring the dramatic coast.  

A short flight from the UK, Iceland is also the perfect destination for a short break or weekend getaway, no matter the season.

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.
