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.

                                                          Had a lovely stay. Dagny was great to deal with throughout the booking and arrival process. The house is really nice and has an old world feel to it. It is in a good location for the old town and accessing the major road system. Nice and quiet and the beds were really comfortable. It had all we needed for self catering and we were very cosy once we returned from our travels each day. Although only ten minutes from the airport we never heard it at all so I assume all flights went away from the town and out to sea. All in all we had a very good stay and would recommend it to travellers. Thanks Dagny.

                                                          Modern and Comfortable

                                                          4 of 5
                                                          The property is sleek, well appointed and maintained, light and airy, very comfortable and fairly priced. I communicated with the owner via email and found the owner very friendly and personable. The kitchen has everything that you will need. There is ample parking and a nice view of the Pearl in Reykjavik from the kitchen window. A car is needed since the property is in the suburbs of Reykjavik but it is an easy 15 minute drive to the city. A half mile away is a grocery store and a wonderful café with great sandwiches, coffee, tea, and baked goods. I would recommend this property to any friends that wanted to visit Reykjavik or surrounding sights. There are only two small suggestions. We had a GPS that gave our final destination as a street parallel to the property. Written directions from the airport in an email would be a helpful backup in case of GPS malfunction. The washing machine and dryer had instructions in Icelandic. A translation of the instructions would have made the task easier and more efficient. All in all, our group would go back again and we will recommend the property.

                                                          Good House In A Great Location!

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          A family of four (2 adults + 2 teenagers), we spent one week at this cottage which is approx. 2 hours from Reykjavik and 2.75 hours from Keflavik Airport. The accommodation (open plan + a (very!) small toilet / shower-room + hallway downstairs, and three separate bedrooms upstairs) was modern, clean, tastefully furnished, well equipped and in immaculate condition. Some points which potential visitors may find useful to know: (i) the rental conditions call for the property to be thoroughly cleaned (included changing the linen on the beds) before departure (it would be useful to have this called out before booking); (ii) the stairs are steep and could be difficult for less physically able people to manage; (iii) the tv / dvd player is located on the upper floor on the area immediately outside the bedrooms; (iv) semi-detached, the cottage is one of several properties within close proximity, in a small development. The house is ideally located beside some beautiful coastline with 2 good cafés within a short walk. The surrounding countryside (including the national park) is - like everywhere else in Iceland - stunning! Supermarket shopping is some 30 minutes away (if travelling from Reykjavik it is recommended to stock up at Borgarnes, en-route). Gestur's communication, before our holiday, was generally very prompt and, on the one occasion that we really needed to speak to him whilst on-site, he again responded quickly and was very helpful. We took advantage of his offer to hire us a car - an arrangement which worked well. In summary, we had a fantastic holiday and found this house a good base from which to explore this area of Western Iceland.
