Iceland Holiday Ideas

See the stunning scenery of Kirkjufellsfoss with our Iceland Holiday Ideas

Iceland is a magnificent country – like nowhere else on earth. Here you can experience lunar landscapes, explosive volcanoes, enormous glaciers and spouting geysers. This is also, of course, an ideal place to see the Northern Lights, to enjoy a romantic break, to see Whales and other creatures of the deep and, in short, come face-to-face with the power and the beauty of nature.

These many attractions make Iceland the perfect holiday destination but they also make it very hard to decide exactly what you want to see and do on your break in the Land of Fire and Ice. That’s why we’ve put together this handy page, showing you the different types of holidays and experiences available. Simply take a look at our Iceland Holiday Ideas and find the ideal itinerary for you! Don't forget that we do tailor made holidays so if you can't find anything which suits you, give us a call on 0333 800 2033 and we can put together your dream trip!

Natural Attractions (holidays for all)

Our Iceland Holiday Ideas demonstrate the sheer power of nature

The first of our Iceland Holiday Ideas focuses on the most prominent feature of this beautiful island – its natural attractions. From the world famous wonders of The Golden Circle to the more remote attractions of the Diamond Circle, you’ll find geysers, waterfalls, lava fields, volcanoes and glaciers at every turn.

If you are short on time but big on expectation, our Iceland Holiday Ideas feature year-round short breaks which let you admire the most famous natural attractions over just four or five days. You can travel on a celebratory New Year’s Eve itinerary or combine natural exploration with whale watching or Northern Lights hunting.

Those who want to spend a week or two exploring Iceland’s natural attractions have a choice of self drive or escorted breaks. Our self drives come with thoroughly researched itineraries to ensure you see the very best of the areas you visit. Travel at your own pace, pick and choose the attractions you want to focus on and relax, safe in the knowledge that your accommodation is pre-booked.

If you prefer to sit back and let the attractions come to you, take a look at our escorted Iceland Holiday Ideas. Ranging from seven to 14 days, these fabulous breaks take you to see all of the major sights as well as those a little off the beaten track. Opt for a tour of the north, savour a tour of the south or combine both on a blockbusting two week extravaganza. Our expert guides are there to ensure you have a holiday you’ll treasure forever.
