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.

Nothing missing so it really was a home from home. Sofia the owner has also made sure that the apartment is equipped with all the little household essentials that a short stay traveller might need but wouldn't/couldn't/didn't bring with them. Warm and cosy - genuinely somewhere you would enjoy spending time. Location is perfect - within 10/15 minute casual walk of the old town and close to supermarkets/restaurants etc. This apartment made our trip over the Christmas really enjoyable. We had a small issue with the wifi password and mailed Soffía about it - she and her partner called in to the apartment about 20 mins later to help us sort it out and then stayed and gave us a load of information on where to go and what to do in Reykjavik - a very nice touch. If you stay here (and you'll be glad you did if you do), you really should try the hot-tub on the balcony - whatever the weather - it's a bit of a special experience - particularly if it's snowing which it was when we used it. 2 adults and 3 kids ranging from 11 to 16 years - plenty of space with lots to do. It was a really good experience and if we ever go back to Reykjavik, we'll definitely look to stay here. Enjoy!

Could be suitable for any time arrival as has keysafe and nearby 24 hour supermarket. The apartment access is ground floor .. we took a few minutes to find the entrance as we thought first floor meant up stairs (UK speak). Enjoyed nearby park for walk to city and swimming pool. Good information prior to arrival, and helpful and friendly response from on site contact when we left an item..Unfortunately we did not meet them during our stay, but thank you. We would recommend the place.

We found the property in a very good shape and Jakob was very fast in responding to any questions. The cottage is in a quiet area with superb panoramic views over a fjord. A lot of nature attractions are reachable during one day trips (car is needed). Highly recommended.
