On our exceptional Short Breaks in Iceland you will stay in the world’s northernmost capital, Reykjavík. This colourful city has become a cosmopolitan hub for inquisitive travellers. Framed by incredible landscapes, it is a perfect base for exploring scenic Iceland. Whatever season you choose to visit, you will be welcomed by some of nature’s most astounding phenomena. In the summer months, the soothing glow of the Midnight Sun spreads light across the dramatic countryside on Short Breaks in Iceland. In winter, however, a blanket of snow covers the ground and the dark night sky plays host to the mesmerising Aurora. Why not head out in search of this stunning phenomenon on an optional guided Northern Lights chase? Give yourself the best possible chance of enjoying a sighting thanks to the expert knowledge of our local guides. Speak to a member of our travel team to add the Northern Lights tour to your itinerary.

Branded the ‘Land of Fire and Ice’ due to the country’s exciting contrasts of bubbling mud pools, rumbling volcanoes and tremendous glaciers, scenic Iceland excites visitors with its intensity. Not only will you find the natural environment mind-blowing, you will also have the opportunity to explore fascinating museums and galleries as well as sampling the chic pavement cafés and restaurants of Reykjavik. Contemporary culture and Viking history merge together, making this city one of the most alluring on earth. During our Short Breaks in Iceland, visit the legendary Blue Lagoon, the historic Golden Circle, Geysir Hot Springs and, if you travel in the summer months, set out to sea in search of a range of whale species. You can even opt for an adventure inside a volcano (May to September) for the ultimate geo-tourism treat! If you would like to join our cetacean excursions, or explore the magma chamber of Thrihnukagigur Volcano, speak to one of our advisers about adding additional experiences to your break. You'll find out more about the range of optional activities on offer here.
