Whether you’re a budding explorer or just looking for a unique holiday, Iceland can provide you with the extraordinary landscape needed for an unforgettable holiday. This island has much to offer, from exploring the city of Reykjavik, to bathing in the famous Blue Lagoon, or even marvelling at the stunning landscapes, mountains and northern lights.
The Blue Lagoon
We apologise for starting with the most popular attraction, but there’s a reason it’s number one.
The Blue Lagoon is possibly Iceland’s most famous attraction, making it a popular choice with tourists visiting the island. Situated in a vast lava plain, visitors can soak in the geothermal seawater or relax in the sauna, steam room and waterfall. A range of in-water massage and treatments are also available.
This black pebble beach offers some stunning sights for any keen photographers. Looking out to the sea from the shore, you’ll see the spectacular structures from the basalt sea stacks. The area is very popular with birdlife, including puffins, fulmars and guillemots. However, the waves are especially strong and unpredictable here, therefore people are advised to take extra care.
The Golden Circle
Every holiday to Iceland must include The Golden Circle Tour. It’s the rules! The tour will take you to see the beautiful Gullfoss waterfall, the Geysir hot spring and the old parliament in National Park Þingvellir. And if these sights weren’t enough, add the experience of snowmobiling on Langjökull glacier.
The Hallgrimskirkja Church
The Hallgrímskirkja is a Lutheran parish church located in Iceland’s capital, Reykjavík. The Church is Iceland’s largest hence why the tower can be seen from almost everywhere in the city.
Before you adventure inside, make sure you take some amazing photos of this buildings unique structure and surroundings.
See the Northern Lights
It’s doesn’t take a genius to see why the northern lights are on most peoples bucket lists. Although one of the most unpredictable attractions in Iceland, if you’re lucky enough to see this spectacular display, it’s a sight that will take your breath away.
There are many factors which can alter your chances of seeing them, for example the season, weather or location. The best season to visit Iceland for the northern lights is September to mid-April. However, sometimes you just have to be in the right place, at the right time.
