Make a holiday rental home or accommodation in Iceland your home away from home

Iceland is a sensational country that cannot possibly be accurately described in words, and by far the most beautiful in Europe. Mother Nature's phenomenal playground is truly magical, and although that word is bounded around far too easily, Iceland is possibly the only place in the world to which the word genuinely applies. The gushing geezers, staggering rock formations, giant waterfalls, ancient volcanoes, vast glaciers and awe-inspiring Northern Lights of Iceland combine in a landscape that would seem far-fetched in a fantasy novel.

Things to do in Iceland

Iceland holidays never cease to amaze. The dazzling, unspoilt wildernesses that you will see on Iceland holidays are absolutely sublime, and one of the best ways to explore is on foot, walking in Iceland. As well as walking in Iceland, there are many ways to explore the sensational scenery, whether on a horse, by 4x4 or by snowmobile. After a long day exploring the countryside, a quick visit to the Blue Lagoon, a man made reservoir of naturally hot geothermal waters, which are thought to have healing powers, is a magnificent way to relax and mull-over all that you have seen whilst on your Iceland tours.

There is just so much to do and so many tourist attractions in Iceland to discover. The geysers, waterfalls and natural hot pools are a joy to discover, and the Iceland Northern Lights have to be seen to be believed during the winter months. Salmon fishing holidays in Iceland are some of the most exciting in the world and there is nowhere finer to go whale watching, which is one of the most famous things to do on an Iceland trip. White water rafting holidays to Iceland are certainly not for the feint hearted either!

There are endless natural tourist attractions in Iceland. The Northern Lights are simply unbelievable, and should be seen by everyone during their lifetime. The Vatnojokull Glacier, Gullfoss Waterfall, Stokkur Geyser and Domadulur Valley should feature on any tours of Iceland.

Places to visit on holiday in Iceland

Reykjavik is the capital of Iceland, and a magnificent place to be based during your Iceland trips. Reykjavik is a city that cannot fail to endear. The sub-arctic city is absolutely incredible, and the sunny summer nights are a joy, yet there are always reminders that life can be harsh here.

Weather in Iceland

The summer in Iceland is far warmer than you may imagine. Running from May until September, the Iceland summer sees daily temperatures reaching around 15°C, as the snow melts and the meadows are filled with flowers and the sounds of birds. This is the best time for holidays walking in Iceland, and even during winter, daily temperatures are usually a little above freezing.

Travel to Iceland

It is fantastically easy to start Iceland holidays. Flights to Iceland arrive from London, Glasgow (GLA) and Manchester (MAN) as well as Edinburgh in Scotland. Iceland is not as far from England or any part of the UK as you might think, taking just a couple of hours to get you there.

Convenient for walking into the city or to the harbour, with a supermarket next door and tour and airport pick up point right outside the door. There was everything we needed in the kitchen and we especially liked the coffee maker!

The view is lovely, especially in the mornings. There is ample hot water for the shower, which is very large and has a nice "rain shower" head. There are shelves in the shower, which I find typically lacking in European showers, to hold soap, shampoo, etc. Bottles of Aveda shampoo and conditioner were provided. The bedroom is spacious and the bed comfortable. The pull out sofa bed was also comfortable and easy to convert. There is ample storage throughout the apartment. It was very nice to be able to cook some meals, as restaurant prices are higher in Iceland than we have found travelling elsewhere around the world. There are enough pots and pans for most home cooks, along with basic spices and utensils. There is a corkscrew. The dishwasher was a real luxury. The clothes washer and dryer both came in very handy and worked well. They hold 6kg per load, which is large for Europe. Laundry detergent was provided. The Wifi worked well and it was fantastic to have a secure, covered parking space, as parking is not free in the city center. The main areas of interest to tourists are very close by, from only a few minutes by foot to about 30 minutes to the area where the whale watching boats depart (this is at a typical walking pace). The buses are less than five minutes by foot. There are plenty of places to eat nearby and a Bonus supermarket about 5-10 minutes away (best prices by far). The only negative, and it is a minor one considering the rest of the apartment's positive aspects, is that there were crumbs on the couch and table from the prior occupants. Instead of relying on people to properly clean the apartment after staying, I would suggest including a non-optional cleaning charge and have the entire apartment deep cleaned by a professional. As of now, a professional does do the "heavy" cleaning, such as the bathroom, laundry, etc. but renters are allowed to wipe down the counters, vacuum, etc. when they leave to avoid a 30 euro cleaning fee. All in all, this apartment exceeded expectations and we would gladly stay here again and have already recommended it to friends and colleagues. Finally, I cannot say enough good things about Bjorn. He was very prompt, patient, and courteous. His employers are very fortunate to have him as their representative.
