DISCOVER THE NATURAL WONDERS OF ICELAND

Holidays in Iceland don’t have to be long. The country’s capital city of Reykjavik is only a 3-hour flight away from the UK, so short breaks to Iceland are becoming more and more popular with British holidaymakers.

This means that in just a few hours you can be enjoying the naturally warmed Blue Lagoon, visiting local sights such as the Harpa concert hall, going whale or puffin spotting and even getting a glimpse of the glorious Northern Lights.

Make sure to visit at least one of the natural wonders in the famous Golden Circle, including Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir and Thingvellir National Park.

Icelandic Culture

Other than the country’s unmatched natural beauty, holidays in Iceland also have plenty to offer its visitors in terms of culture. Although Reykjavík is small compared to a lot of other European capitals, the city is actually buzzing. Take the time to explore it and you will find museums, art galleries, live music venues, restaurants, bars and cafes, as well as plenty of independent boutiques and small shops.

You can also visit Akureyri, nicknamed the “Capital of North Iceland”. Recently it has been attracting visitors with several bars and reputable restaurants, its unique arts scene, including an annual medieval festival and historical significance.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO GO ON HOLIDAY TO ICELAND?

Holidays to Iceland depend a lot on the weather and each season has its own benefits and disadvantages. For example, summer months are much warmer (around 13C) and you can still see sunlight at midnight.

If you want to see the Northern Lights your best bet is to go on holidays to Iceland during the winter months. It’s also the best time to see snow-covered landscapes around Iceland – but make sure you dress warm as temperatures can easily drop past sub-zero!

The cheapest deals for holidays in Iceland can usually be found from October to March. Shorter days and colder weather means that less holidaymakers are visiting, so hotel and car rental prices are much lower than other times. On the plus side, that’s easily the best time to go aurora-spotting.
