Think of Iceland and there are several familiar associations: hip Reykjavík, the beautiful therapeutic Blue Lagoon, or perhaps our musical exports Björk or Sigur Rós. But this land of boiling mud pools, spurting geysers, glaciers and waterfalls is also an adventure playground. Its breathtaking landscape is an inspiration to artists and photographers. Iceland is the least densely populated country in Europe, with a pure, unpolluted and truly magical landscape. Iceland’s summers are surprisingly warm, lush and green, with days lengthening until midsummer, when the sun dips down to the horizon but never sets. During winter you can marvel at the amazing, undulating green, blue, yellow and pink lights of the aurora in the night sky, and the winters are not as cold as you might imagine. Regardless of when you visit, you can be assured of the warmth of the Icelanders’ welcome and their desire to share their culture and make every effort to ensure that your stay is a pleasant one.

 



Reykjavik (Keflavik)Reykjavik (Keflavik)

With a community of 200,000 people, the Icelandic capital alone is home to around 63% of the country’s population. This cosmopolitan city stretches along a sheltered bay, just a few kilometres from the Esja, Hengill and Bláfjöll volcanoes. Its name, which literally means ‘bay of smoke’, derives from the proximity of hot springs. Welcome to a lively and hospitable city!
