No matter what time of year you visit, Iceland holidays offer up a whole host of natural wonders, like picturesque volcanic landscapes, erupting geysers and thermal lagoons.
Land of fire and ice
Volcanoes, mountains, glaciers, geysers, lava fields and hot springs – natural wonders certainly aren’t in short supply in Iceland. The spectacular island, which hovers just below the Arctic Circle, is one of the most geologically active places in the world. The Blue Lagoon – a huge geothermal hot tub – is a must-do. Its water temperature hovers around a toasty 37°C.
City sights in Reykjavik
The world’s most northerly capital city blends traditional charm with cosmopolitan style. Corrugated iron houses are painted in every colour of the rainbow, independent restaurants serve world-class cuisine, and hip bars and clubs ensure Reykjavik lives up to its party town reputation.
Winter in Iceland – the Northern Lights
The winter months are your best bet for catching a glimpse of the elusive Northern Lights. All of our winter holidays include a Northern Lights hunt, in addition to a day-long Golden Circle tour, with the latter including lunch, too. If the weather’s not great, we’ll reschedule for another night, to increase your chances of seeing them. You can check out the full winter itinerary here.
Summer in Iceland – the Midnight Sun
Call into Iceland in the summer and you’ll be blown away by the sheer amount of daylight. The sun doesn’t even set on the longest days in June – which is great news if you want lots of extra time for exploring. Our summer itinerary includes a Golden Circle tour – ticking off a geyser, waterfall and national park – and a Midnight Sun Tour of Akranes.
