Iceland travel is only growing more and more popular, and it's not hard to understand why. The famous Golden Circle with its endless wonders, the waterfalls, the volcanoes, the black-sand beaches and the glaciers combine with friendly people, the small-but-vibrant capital of Reykjavík, excellent food and of course Iceland's Blue Lagoon to offer the destination of a lifetime.
Standing proud and wild in the North Atlantic, Iceland is home to landscapes like no other, where natural wonders seem to lurk around every corner and where 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 what season you travel in, things to do in Iceland number in the thousands, and you'll find plenty to keep you and your loved ones entertained. Wonder at crashing waterfalls, take a Golden Circle tour, retreat to a new selection of luxury hotels, or simply rent a car and get out on the amazing roads.
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, the compact and charming capital, 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 futher bolstered by 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.
