Iceland

Known as ‘The Land Of Fire and Ice,’ Iceland is a luxury travel destination for all holiday makers with a thirst for adventure. Trade picture-perfect beaches and year-round sunshine for towering glaciers, beautiful national parks and, of course, the Northern Lights and you won’t be disappointed.
  
Iceland’s long list of nature reserves is sure to excite any explorer. Lush and green in the summer with blankets of snow arriving during the colder months, you can spend your days chasing arctic foxes at Hornstrandir Nature Reserve or head to the west and walk on the black sands of Djúpalpón Beach at Snæfellsjökull National Park… the choice is yours.
  
Locals are known for their warm and welcoming nature, and with 60 percent of the population living in the capital of Reykjavík, you’re bound to make a new friend or two if you’re here for a European city break. Culture is in abundance with various museums and landmarks dotted around the streets. This culture spills out to the rest of the country which in turn makes the destination a melting pot of unforgettable experiences. From live music playing in the cities and towns, to homemade souvenirs and a cuisine that can easily see you tucking into grilled puffin and whale steak, you’ve never been anywhere quite like this exquisite Nordic country. Luxury hotels act as wonderful bases to explore with gourmet restaurants found in many along with elegant rooms and suites.

Venture further afield and hotels become hubs of wellness. Think geothermic hot springs, morning yoga, traditional saunas and a wealth of treatments available to book. No doubt a soothing massage or relaxing facial will be much needed after a day or two exploring the national parks or discovering the icy temperatures. Quiet and secluded, if you’ve come on holiday to escape with loved ones or take some time out for yourself, you have many options to choose from when it comes to Iceland.
 
WINGED BOOTS WISDOM
 

The best time to see the Northern Lights is between September and March thanks to clearer skies and cold yet dry weather conditions. In and around Reykjavik is the best place to catch a sighting, and make sure to bring your camera so you can hold on to the memories.

THINGS TO DO IN Iceland

Iceland in a Nutshell

Adventure Awaits
 
  • The Northern Lights certainly ranks highly on the list of the most stunning natural phenomenas in the world, and Iceland is one of the best countries to see the Aurora Borealis. You can spy on them in Reykjavík, or alternatively head to the peninsula of Seltjarnarnes just 10-minutes away from the capital by car.
  • Snæfellsjökull National Park is a must for intrepid explorers. Whale watching, various hiking trails and the chance to relish the signature Snæfellsjökull glacier ensures an adventurous getaway of the highest standard. There’s even a beach here with black sands which you’ll definitely talk about for years to come.
  • For sightseeing make sure to embark on a tour of the Golden Circle. You’ll go through three of the most popular attractions in the country: Gullfoss Waterfall, Geysir Geothermal Area and Thingfellir National Park.
 
Tastes To Try
 
  • For amazing dishes in Reykjavik, head to Grillmarkadurinn. Puffin burgers, whale steak and monkfish skewers are sure to please your palate, and if you simply can’t decide on one dish to try, then the tasting menu is sure to go down a treat.
  • Perlan is one of the most striking buildings in Reykjavik thanks to its glass dome roof. Plus, it has a revolving restaurant where you can enjoy panoramic views of the city. A seasonal four-course menu as well as a banquet of traditional delicacies ensures every member of the party is satisfied.
  • Lava Restaurant at Blue Lagoon will have you feasting on fresh Icelandic ingredients for lunch and dinner complemented by stunning views of Grindavik. If you’re here for a spa day, you can even enjoy your meal in your bathrobe to prolong the pampering.
 
Don’t Forget Your Kit
 
  • Located in Grindavik, Blue Lagoon is a haven of wellness. Make sure to bring a swimsuit as you’ll be soaking in the mineral-rich waters for hours, with plenty of spa treatments on the menu such as signature massages and rejuvenating facials.
  • 10 percent of Iceland is covered in glaciers so you can expect hiking and ice climbing to be in abundance. A variety of tours are available to book that cater for complete beginners right the way through to pros.
  • Amp up the luxury of your next ski trip with heli-skiing. The chance to jet down the mountains of the Troll Peninsula is already brilliant, but the fact you’ll be going back up to the top via helicopter makes it even better.
