Iceland Short Breaks

Make an enquiryArrow

If you're looking for a short break with a difference then Iceland has so much to offer, whether it's to experience the country for the first time or simply as a quick reminder of its many charms.

Visit the world’s most northerly capital Reykjavik - a compact city full of life at any time of year with a calendar of events reflecting Icelandic culture as well as international 'cool'. But this city offers much more than a typical city break, with its proximity to an abundance of natural wonders.

Although Reykjavik is often considered as the first choice for a quick weekend or a mid-week escape, with fascinating places such as the Snaefellsnes Peninsula and the stunning south west region with just an hour or two of the capital, a short stay in the countryside is definitely worthwhile to immerse yourself in some of Iceland’s most iconic sights and dramatic scenery and very easy to arrange. And close to the international airport is the famous Blue Lagoon, the ideal place for a weekend of pampering!

With vehicles available from either Keflavik Airport or Reykjavik, as well as other locations throughout Iceland, a short break with car hire is a popular choice. You can choose to stay either in Reykjavik, out in the country, or a combination of the two!


Our suggested short break itineraries typically range from 3 to 4 nights, with a flexibility allowing you to add in as much or as little activity as you wish – you can fill your holiday with exciting new adventures, pick one or two special experiences, or simply soak up the scenery and natural wonders, taking each day as it comes.
