Let Us Plan Your Travel to Iceland

Iceland is often ranked among or at the top of lists of countries with the happiest citizens, and once you visit, you’ll understand why. The beauty here is so striking, it’s hard to believe it’s real. Soaring volcanic mountains rise from barren volcanic landscapes while magnificent waterfalls seem to be around nearly every corner. Just gazing out at the scenery alone is enough to melt stress away, but Icelanders take it up a notch by soaking in hot springs which can be found throughout the country. While the Blue Lagoon is the most famous, containing milky turquoise water that ranges from 98- to 102-degrees, there are countless tranquil hot springs where few visitors venture, providing an especially relaxing soak.

Outdoor adventure abounds here as well – you can hike across a glacier, or even enter an ice cave to marvel at brilliant blue frozen ceilings studded with stalactites before crawling into a frozen chamber under a cathedral of translucent blue waves.

There are Jeep tours that will get you out into the most remote places, and you can even snorkel through a crack between the North American and Eurasian continents. Ride an Icelandic horse, go sea kayaking or join a whale watching tour – Iceland is the whale watching capital of Europe.

While most people come to enjoy the outdoors, the capital city of Reykjavik is a delight to explore with its compact downtown, colourful street art and interesting museums, including one of the world’s most unusual: the Phallological Musuem.

Where to visit in Iceland

Our travel experts have collated their top recommendations of where to visit in Iceland.

  • Reykjavik

    Reykjavik

    While Iceland’s capital may be small, it has a highly walkable, compact downtown with colorful street art and lots to see and do. One of its most iconic landmarks, Hallgrimskirkja Church stands out on the skyline and offers a panoramic vista of the city’s multicolored rooftops and surrounded mountains from an observation deck near the top. From here, you can stroll down the road that leads directly down to the waterfront, popping into unique shops like the Tonar 12 music store and the enjoy a world-famous hot dog at Bæjarins Beztu.

  • Vik

    Vik

    The tiny town of Vik is home to a population of only around 300, but it makes a great base for exploring attractions on the South Coast, including jet black sand beaches, unique hexagonal basalt columns, with bizarre sea stack formations pounded by the waves just offshore. On the small peninsula of Dyrholaey near the edge of Vik are dramatic cliffs where puffins can be seen during the summer. In town is a beautiful white church with a red roof that sits atop a hill. It’s not only photogenic itself, but from here you’ll enjoy a magnificent panoramic view.

  • Golden Circle

    Golden Circle

    The Golden Circle is Iceland’s most famous tourist route. Visitors can stand between two continents and visit Law Rock, the spot where parliament met for over 850 years to legislate, surrounded by a spectacular landscape. You can watch in awe as Strokkur geyser erupts, skyrocketing 100 feet every 5- to 10-minutes and marvel at Gullfoss Falls, the country’s own version of Niagara Falls which cascades powerfully down in two stages, plunging for a total of 105 feet into a rugged canyon below.

  • Akureyri

    Akureyri

    Akureyri is often referred to as the “Capital of the North.” For those who plan to explore Northern Iceland, its’ the perfect base. A laid-back city with a population of around 18,000, it lies under snow-dusted peaks at the head of the country’s largest fjord. From here, you can take a number of exciting day trips, including Godafoss Falls, the “Waterfall of the Gods,” Lake Myvatan with its bubbling mud pools, steam vents and geothermal caves, and the Lake Myvatn Nature Baths, a tranquil alternative to the Blue Lagoon. Back in town, you’ll find plenty of shops, bars and eateries to enjoy.

  • Grindavik

    Grindavik

    Grindavik is one of the closest towns to Keflavik Airport, located on the Reykjanes Peninsula. It boasts a dramatic setting of lava fields lying right next to the Atlantic, though it may best be known for the famous Blue Lagoon, which is right at its doorstep. Here you can soak in warm, milky turquoise waters, scoop up a handful of silica to make your own revitalizing skin mask and swim out to a bar in the middle to sip strawberry champagne, beer and other beverages. There’s a fantastic restaurant, gift shop and hotel on-site too.

  • Hofn

    Hofn

    The town of Hofn is more of a small fishing village, home to only around 2,000, but after driving through miles and miles of empty landscapes, it’s almost feels like a metropolis. It’s a popular stop along the Ring Road as well as being a good base for outdoor adventurers with the area surrounded by soaring mountains and wide rivers. It’s particularly popular among those who want to explore the glaciers, with the largest in Europe, Vatnajokull, within clear view.
