About Iceland

Iceland is a truly majestic country, with incredible landscapes and vast lakes, stunning waterfalls and luxurious hot springs. The most northerly capital in the world, Reykjavík is a quirky city with great views out towards the sea and a buzzing nightlife. The city’s also a great base from which to visit the sites within the famous Golden Circle and the northern lights.

In Northern Iceland there’s lots to see, including museums, the most northerly botanical garden in the world, and some of Iceland’s warm lagoons. In the South of Iceland, there are medieval monuments and nature reserves and some magnificent natural landmarks. If you’re brave, try some traditional Icelandic food such as Hákarl, aka rotten shark. There is hardly any crime in Iceland, but nudity is quite normal!

Book With Us

With accommodation in Reykjavík, and spread across North and Southern Iceland, you’re sure to find something on our website that suits you. As well as being able to book your flights and hotel transfers with us, you can also book trips such as a tour around the Golden Circle or a Northern Lights Cruise.

When To Go

Iceland is busiest for tourists from June to August, but there is plenty to do throughout the year if you’re happy to stay around Reykjavík and enjoy the Christmas celebrations. May and June are the best time for bird watching, and if your aim is to explore uninhabited inner Iceland then you should travel in July or August as the highland tracks are only open during these months.

Sightseeing and must-sees

  • Go Whale Watching in Húsavík
    There is an almost 100 per cent chance of seeing whales between the months of June and August; up to 11 species of whales arrive in the area around Húsavík to feed during these months.
  • Marvel at the Northern Lights
    Between September and April, the skies are lit up with the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights. Head into the wilderness on a guided tour to try and spot this incredible natural phenomenon. You are not guaranteed a sighting, but your best chance to see them is when there’s a clear night sky.
  • Take a guided tour around the Golden Circle
    This popular tourist route encompasses some of South Iceland’s most beautiful sites. You’ll see the Geysir, Thingvellir National Park rift valley, the greenhouse village of Hverageròi as well as other sites.
  • Visit the Blue Lagoon
    The Blue Lagoon, one of Iceland’s geothermal spas, is an unmissable attraction. You’ll need to splash out on a ticket but it’s certainly worth it. Take your bathing suit and laze around in the hot water which averages between 37 and 39 degrees Celsius.
  • Walk around Þingvellir
    Iceland’s first national park, Þingvellir, was named a Unesco World Heritage Site in 2004. It has historic worldly importance as it was the first democratic parliament ever established. While there isn’t much evidence left of the Vikings who lived in Þingvellir, but the park’s beauty is undeniable.
