A land of magic and mystery

Combining together the elements, holidays to Iceland are a magical experience that everyone should try at least once. Very few places in the world offer a mix of mountains, glaciers, volcanoes and lava fields, and nor do they amalgamate all of this together with the relaxation provided by humidifying hot springs. Iceland is a place where you will be indulged in all of this and so much more.

In a place where the natural scenery runs as far as the eye can see there aren’t many places you can head in Iceland and not have your breath taken away. While humans have shaped the Earth in modern times, Iceland remains a slave to the elements, where vast landscapes have been created by natural events throughout time. Adding a unique spin to waterfalls, beaches and just about every site you see, you will never be left disappointed here.

Phenomenal views

In order to soak up the atmosphere on Iceland holidays, it’s important to situate yourself closely to the attractions. Reykjavik is known for its boutiques, museums and cultural excursions. As the capital city, you will find something to please everyone amid the streets as well as some natural sites to look out for. The Aurora Borealis can be seen in the winter months, whereas a trip to the Volcano House is a must if you want to find out the history surrounding Iceland’s volcanoes.

A number of hotels will ideally situate you for exploration of the capital’s treasures, and from each you will be able to discover what the country has to offer further afield. Excursions from the city will ensure your holidays in Iceland are filled with picturesque images of the island’s most alluring attractions; breath-taking beaches, stunning mountains and gorgeous glaciers all being a relative stone’s throw away.

A year-round experience

Spot whales on boat tours, visit the towering Hallgrimskirkja church or gaze upon the pillar-like edifice looking over Black Sand Beach – wherever you head on holidays to Iceland you’ll be greeted with plenty to do. Making your way to the Dynjandi waterfalls in Isafjordur will fill your visions with outstanding scenes along the way, before showcasing you to one of the most awe-inspiring sights you’ll find in the country. Frozen in winter, cascading in summer – the beauty of the falls can be likened to an artistic masterpiece; such is the perfection of nature’s creation.

For cosmopolitan style and charm, there’s no better adventure waiting than that of experiencing the world’s most northerly capital city, Reykjavik. Impressive architecture can be found in the way of The Pearl, Imagine Peace Tower and the National Museum of Iceland, but those wanting to enjoy the calming auras of the city will be best-served by the peaceful bars and friendly pubs. Skuli Craft Bar, Micro Bar and Bravo are just a few of the places you can get stuck into a beverage, but it will be in the city’s exquisite restaurants where you will sample Iceland’s fine cuisine.

While you will find hundreds of restaurant in the island’s capital city, Fridrik V and Grillmarkadurinn are two that are known for serving up ample supplies of Scandinavian food. Elsewhere you will find a number of restaurants providing seafood and various fusion dishes to tempt the palates with. Iceland holidays will offer as much food for the eyes as it does for the stomach however, and some of the picture-perfect images around the island will be more than enough sustenance for those looking to take a photo or two. The Blue Lagoon’s milky blue waters spark inspiration amid barren lava fields, whereas the Vatnajokull National Park is an all-rounded glimpse into perfection.

If you fancy seeing more of the Aurora Borealis, there are few better places to head than Finland – the snowy landscapes making for an unforgettable experience.
