What to Do in Iceland

  • Blue Lagoon Iceland 1

    Swim in the Blue Lagoon

    The milky, warm turquoise waters of the Blue Lagoon are world-famous, surrounded by a black volcanic landscape. Couples can soak up the healing properties together, enjoy in-water massages, rub on a natural face mask, and swim out to the bar to enjoy strawberry champagne for a toast to a new life together.

  • Northern Lights Vik Iceland

    Watch the Northern Lights

    The northern lights can be seen anytime from September through early April on cold, clear nights with aurora activity present. Winter is the best time thanks to the long hours of darkness. Head to any spot away from city lights or join a tour that will take you to the best places for viewing.

  • Gullfoss Waterfall Iceland

    Gaze at Gullfoss Waterfall

    Often called Iceland’s own version of Niagara Falls, Gullfoss, or Golden Falls is a powerful waterfall cascading down in two steps, plunging for 72 feet and the other for 36, into a more than mile-long canyon below. Located along the Golden Circle tourist route, there are several trails that provide an up-close look.

  • Black Sand Beach Reynisfjara Iceland

    Walk the Black Sand Beaches

    Iceland offers a number of velvety black sand beaches like Reynisfjara along the south coast near the town of Vik. It’s famous for its basalt columns and sea stacks that majestically rise from the Atlantic. Just across from Jokulsarlon Lagoon is another black sand beach with chunks of ice scattered about like gems.

  • Ice Cave Skaftafell Iceland

    Explore an Ice Cave

    Found in Iceland’s glaciers, the ice caves are one of the most impressive wonders of nature with tours available that will bring you through long, frozen chambers beneath a brilliant cathedral of electric-blue waves. The ice glows blue due to a lack of air bubbles and it’s absolutely mesmerizing.

When to Visit Iceland

There are reasons to visit Iceland in every season, with attractions like the waterfalls and hot springs enjoyed year-round. Winter is surprisingly mild with temperatures hovering right around freezing, ideal for catching the northern lights and taking ice cave tours. In the spring lupines are blooming, lambs frolic, and the summer crowds have yet to arrive. Summer is the high season with endless hours of daylight and the most activities available, but you’ll need to book well in advance and plan to pay higher prices. Visitor numbers start to fall along with the temperatures in autumn – by late September the aurora might make an appearance.

What is the best honeymoon destination in Iceland?

The best honeymoon destination in Iceland depends on what you’d like to enjoy. With so much to see, you might want to split your time between a couple of different places. The largest city and capital, Reykjavik, offers the most fine-dining, shopping, and cultural attractions. You’ll find 5-star luxury hotels along the famous Golden Circle tourist route that will also put you close to natural attractions, hiking, and other activities, without being too far from the city. Or consider a secluded vacation rental on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. It’s filled with stunning wonders, including waterfalls and black sand beaches while being far from the crowds.

Where should I stay on my honeymoon in Iceland?

There have been an increasing number of luxury properties popping up in Iceland in recent years, many of which offer the best of the best for honeymooners. If you want something unique you can even spend the night in a hanging bubble surrounded by nature. Or, for something more traditional, consider a hotel right on the Blue Lagoon. There are also remote hotels in the countryside ideal for watching the Northern Lights, some of which include geothermal hot tubs and telescopes.

 

 

What are the essential things to do on a honeymoon in Iceland?

Waterfall-hopping is an essential for everyone, with dozens of breath-taking cascades to discover. Take a hike to discover the magnificent landscapes that can’t be seen by car or an ice cave tour in the winter. Of course, you’ll have to soak in the Blue Lagoon, but you might visit some of the more remote hot springs too. Globally known for its high-quality foods enjoy a romantic gourmet meal and a food tour in Reykjavik to sample an array of tasty offerings. Taking in the view from the top of the nearly 243-feet-high Hallgrimskirkja Church is also a definite must.
