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.

Small balcony for the rare occasion that it's warm enough to sit outside but also to give fresh air. The kitchen had everything we needed, the sofas and bed were comfortable. And the location is perfect. Easy stroll to the main part of town, many bars and restaurants nearby. Nearest supermarket it's about 5-10 minutes walk although there is a small general store just up the hill from the apartment. I would highly recommend it.

It was very spacious and warm, which we needed with the weather being so cool; we only lit the fire on one night and that was mainly for the aesthetic. It's in a very quiet area with the only noise from birdsong. We received an information pack before we arrived which included everything you could need - including the location of the elusive cutlery drawer! The cabin is situated on the route of the golden circle and the far ranging views were amazing. The nearest town is Selfoss which is about 10 mins by car and has takeaways and supermarkets. The location was such that you were in easy reach of quite a few of the sites with amazing scenery on the way. We visited the waterfalls, Reykjavik and went horse riding at Nuphestar. If we return to Iceland I would definitely come back to the cabin.
