Iceland Holidays 2020

Cinematic landscapes feature an abundance of natural wonders near the top of the planet. Holidays in Iceland offer epic adventures, rich culture and photo opportunities in spades.

From incredible marine life in the north to the south’s gushing geysers and dynamic Reykjavik, Iceland holidays are nothing short of extraordinary. Volcanic landscapes host geothermal lagoons and night skies feature the spectacular Northern Lights. It’s not all about the great outdoors though, with a cultural scene that includes live music, literary marvels, handicrafts and an innovative dining scene.

Adventure Activities in Iceland

Visit Iceland in winter and you can zip through snowy forests on snowmobiles, try ice caving and snowboard across the mountains. The warmer months bring rafting, kayaking and hiking across otherworldly landscapes. For adrenaline-hunters, extreme sports like heli-skiing and skydiving serve up thrills you’ll never forget.

The famous Golden Circle is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Iceland’s natural phenomenons.

  • Known as Strokkur, Selfoss Geyser is one of the top attractions of the Golden Circle sightseeing route. It erupts dramatically every 10 minutes or so, blasting water up to 30 metres in the air.
  • Eyjafjallajokull volcano is 1,651 metres tall and last erupted, famously, in 2010. With hundreds of years between eruptions, it’s quite safe to visit now and you’ll find the visitor's centre in the town of Hvolsvollur.
  • Take a tour to set your eyes upon the breathtaking Hoffellsjokull Glacier. It’s located in Vatnajokull National Park, which features numerous nature trails for hiking.
  • One of the mightiest waterfalls in the country, Godafoss is 30 metres wide and falls from a height of 12 metres. It flows over a horseshoe-shaped rock and its nickname is, ‘Waterfall of the Gods’.
  • Kerid Crater is around 3,000 years old. Take the path to the crater’s edge, encircling striking red slopes and blue-green waters.

Dive into adventure, explore natural wonders and discover fascinating history on Iceland holidays that offer something for everyone.

  • The National Museum of Iceland provides the perfect introduction to the country. Collections range from 1600 to the present day and include the 13th-century Valþjofsstaðir church door.
  • Visit Reynisfjara, which is Iceland’s most famous black sand beach. Atlantic Ocean waves thump powerfully on the black shore amid stunning lava formations.
  • The rotating glass dome of Perlan is an iconic landmark in Reykjavik. The museum puts you up close to Iceland’s wonders, with interactive exhibits of volcanoes, oceans, glaciers and ice caves.
  • Muds pools and steam vents add to a mystical atmosphere at Gunnuhver Hot Springs. It’s named after the legend of an angry ghost, Gudrun, whose spirit was trapped in the hot springs by a priest.
  • You’ll see Iceland’s tallest church, Hallgrimskirkja, from nearly every corner of Reykjavik. The design was inspired by basalt rocks and it took 40 years to complete.

From cosy cafes to the Northern Lights and steamy thermal hot springs, holidays in Iceland turn on the romance.

  • The milky-blue water of the Blue Lagoon is surrounded by black lava fields. Sink into water that sits at 39°C year-round and nourishes your skin with natural silica. The spa also features steam rooms, saunas and a world-class restaurant.
  • Whale watching tours run all year in Iceland, however, the high season is between April and October. Expect to spot Minke, Sperm, Pilot and Humpback whales, as well as porpoises, orcas and marine birds.
  • Stroll through the incredibly scenic beauty of Thingvellir National Park. Along with waterfalls, rivers and lava fields, it holds historical value as the world’s first democratic parliament, established by the Vikings.
  • Icelandic horses are known for their friendly, intelligent nature and they’re adorable too! Take a horse riding tour through volcanic landscapes and rugged wilderness.
  • Home to Europe’s biggest glaciers by volume, the Vatnajokull region is a true winter wonderland. Breathtaking ice caves are naturally formed and discovered each year, with icy crystals that range from blue to dazzling white.
Nightlife in Iceland

Nightlife in Iceland

For a small city, Reykjavik truly knows how to party, and the spotlight is always on art, culture and nature.

  • Iceland is one of the best places in the world to see the aurora borealis, so you can tick the Northern Lights off your bucket list. The best time to see the dancing, neon wonders with an expert tour guide is from September through to March.
  • Laugavegur is the main shopping, dining and bar-hopping street in Reykjavik. Take your pick from live music venues, artsy cafes and trendy drinking holes just off the main strip.
  • The Harpa Reykjavik Concert Hall and Conference Centre is an award-winning landmark. Check the schedule for a wide variety of performances including by the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and the Icelandic Opera.
  • Kaffibarinn is one of the city’s most popular hangouts. Two floors feature a chilled-out vibe until live DJs kick off the fun with house, hip hop and indie music. Get there early to avoid the queue on weekends.
  • Are you a film buff? Iceland’s first art house cinema, Bio Paradis, is the place to catch independent films, shorts and documentaries.
