Iceland never ceases to amaze - the mouth-watering scenery is an adventure in itself, with volcanic craters, lava flows, hot springs and geysers, glaciers and stunning waterfalls offering a new view around every corner.
We have been arranging Iceland holidays for almost 30 years and are the largest tour operator in the world to Iceland. Our tailor-made service ensures that we can put together an Iceland holiday that is right for you.
We offer year round holidays to Iceland. In summer, take advantage of the long daylight hours, high season being June to August. The best months for wild flowers are from mid-June to August and for birds May and June. If you want to travel through the uninhabited interior of Iceland, you should plan to visit early July to end September when most of the highland tracks are open. In winter, take advantage of this quieter time of year to enjoy autumnal colours, wintry landscapes and the allure of the northern lights.
Bursting with mountains, waterfalls, volcanoes, glaciers, hot springs and geysers, there is no part of Iceland that should be left unexplored. Whether you are whale watching, snowmobiling on a glacier, swimming in a hot outdoor pool, river rafting or horse riding, there is something for everyone at any time of the year.
From late August until mid-April, the spectacular northern lights can often be observed. Displays can vary in intensity from a glowing curtain of greenish yellow lights dancing in the distance to a spectacular, multi-coloured fusion stretching across the sky.
Iconic Iceland Attractions
The world-famous Blue Lagoon is conveniently located to the airport, so a dip here on departure or arrival is a must. Iceland's most popular trio of natural wonders, known as the Golden Circle, encompasses the double-tiered waterfall of Gullfoss, the geothermal hotspot Geysir with its erupting plumes of water and tectonic beauty spot Thingvellir National Park.

Iceland's Wildlife & Nature
Iceland offers exceptional opportunities for whale watching (April-October) and horse riding (year round). The Icelandic horse is a pure breed with five gaits.
