Iceland Holidays

 

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.

Iceland Holidays

We have been arranging Iceland holidays for 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.

Northern Lights
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.

Why Choose Discover The World
With 30 years of experience in arranging holidays to Iceland, we know this country inside out and can offer you advice and specialist knowledge to ensure your Iceland holiday is the best it can be.

Getting Around Iceland
This country really is a pleasure to drive around, with quiet roads and magnificent scenery around almost every bend. On an Iceland fly drive holiday, with your own vehicle and the comfort and convenience of pre-booked accommodation, you can enjoy the freedom to explore at your leisure.

Enjoy exploring Iceland on an escorted holiday in either the summer or winter in the company of a knowledgeable guide and with like-minded travellers.

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. They are sure-footed animals that are gentle, spirited and eager to please the rider offering the perfect method of exploring Iceland’s exceptional and varied scenery.

Reykjavik City
City breaks to Reykjavik are popular all year round. In summer you can wander through the city and explore the surrounding countryside, or attend one of the many summer festivals. In winter marvel at the Christmas lights and festive celebrations and search the night skies for the northern lights. With a wealth of natural wonders (including the Blue Lagoon spa on your doorstep) you can explore by day and indulge in fine dining at night. Whatever time of year you travel to Reykjavik you can also learn how to party the Icelandic way in the thriving capital city of Iceland!
