See some of Europe’s greatest natural wonders in Iceland, the “Land of Fire and Ice.” Despite an inhospitable environment formed by volcanoes and glaciers, Iceland has been settled since the ninth century. Walk on glaciers, relax in hot springs and learn about Iceland’s rugged history.
Glaciers cover 11 percent of Iceland’s area, so any itinerary should include these vast ice masses and the terrain they have shaped. Trek into Vatnajökull National Park, the site of Iceland’s largest glacier. Join a tour to step out onto the glacier, which is punctuated by volcanoes. Hvannadalshnúkur, Iceland’s highest peak, is located here. Head into the park’s northern reaches to find one of Europe’s most powerful waterfalls, Dettifoss.
After your icy trip, get warm in one of Iceland’s hundreds of natural and manmade hot springs. The most popular is the Blue Lagoon southwest of Reykjavik, which steams among craggy volcanic rocks. Go farther west along the Reykjanes Peninsula, which is rife with lava fields. After exploring this area, travel to the peninsula north of Reykjavik to see Snaefellsjökull, perhaps the world’s most famous volcano due to its role in Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth.
While Iceland’s terrain is still being formed, its human history is some of the oldest in the Western world. Visit Þingvellir National Park, where one of Europe’s oldest parliaments was formed in A.D. 930. Head into the northwestern Dalir region, where Leif Erikson, the first European to arrive in America, was born. A statue of Erikson stands in front of the Hallgrimskirkja in Reykjavik.
Iceland is sparsely populated, with half of its inhabitants in Reykjavik. Nonetheless, its road network is extensive. For the most comprehensive view of the country, follow the Ring Road. This loosely parallels the nation’s perimeter, passing through Reykjavik and skirting most of the country’s main attractions. To reach Iceland, fly into Reykjavik’s international airport or take a ferry to Seyðisfjörður from mainland Europe.
Very good location - however, our room had a few light fixtures that did not work. We had to ask the staff to replace them - which they did. However, I think they should inspect every room carefully before a new guest moves in
Excellent, I booked on this hotel for my girlfriend's birthday and she loved it, very clean and comfortable. The reception team was very kind, we arrived in town before the check in time and they sent us a message letting us to know that the room was ready in advance. Our studio was amazing. Highly ...
Beautiful hotel in a picturesque location - great for the glacier lagoon and National Park - with very friendly staff. Rooms were lovely with great showers! Restaurant and bar really good with an excellent breakfast. Also with it’s own waterfall! Best hotel we stayed in in Iceland.
Great value. The rooms have two convection stovetop burners, a small dishwasher, a small fridge, and various pots/ pans/ other cooking utensils. The shower is a bit wonky, and the toilet is uncomfortable to sit on, but these were small gripes. Overall, this place is a must when looking to do Iceland ...
This property is perfectly located and the check in staff was friendly. We landed early and were able to check into our room by 10am. Our only negative was that the wait staff in the restaurant was unfriendly and unhelpful, which was surprising.
