Iceland holidays

Iceland may be part of Europe but its far northerly location, epic natural wonders and distinctively unique architecture truly put it in a world of its own. This is a land where waterfalls and geysers create swirling mists and craters carve deep impressions in the landscape. With a city break to the capital, Reykjavik, you can experience this inspired island for yourself.

Golden moments

The natural wonders of Iceland are world famous, and you can discover them all by following the Golden Circle. This trail takes in the colossal Gullfoss waterfall, the 70m high Geysir and the volcanic crater lake of Kerid. The tour also takes in the Thingvellir National Park, where the first Icelandic parliament was formed way back in 930.

Enchanting water

Iceland is surrounded by the cool blue tones of the northern Atlantic Ocean. This deep body of water hosts a remarkable range of whale species. Get a boat trip from Faxafloi Bay and see if you can spot grey, minke and pilot whales gracefully breaking the water’s surface. For an even more relaxing event in the water, it’s well worth a visit to the Blue Lagoon, a beautiful geothermal spa close to Keflavik Airport.

Explore the city

Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik, is home to a roll call of fascinating attractions and architecture. That starts with the Hallgrimskirkja. The largest church in Iceland, its jagged edges reach skywards. It’s also well worth visiting the National Museum of Iceland. Here, you’ll find bronze figures and ancient manuscripts, taking you on a story of the country across the ages, from 800 to the present day.
