For the past twenty years we have travelled to Iceland dozens of times, mesmerised by the beauty of the country and its unique inhabitants. Perched in the North Atlantic, battered by millennia of tough weather, lying on top of some of the world's most active geological features, Iceland has become an absolute must for international travellers to visit.
Described by The Lonely Planet travel guide as the top destination to visit in 2010, Iceland remains one of our favourites.
"You've always wanted to explore this magical, mysterious land, explore volcanoes and ice caps and bathing in hot springs? Then 2010 is your year," states Lonely Planet. And if you didn't make it in 2010, then 2012 will do just fine!
Nowhere are so many wondrous attractions enjoyed by so few visitors; Iceland is not yet plagued by crowds, although accommodation can be tough to find during the peak summer season of July and early August, but there are still relatively few visitors. And the countryside remains its pristine best for all to come and see.
We have been to Iceland dozens of times to meet suppliers, inspect hotels and visit every nook and cranny of this remarkable country. We want to ensure that we are on top of all new tours, hotels and possibilities for travellers visiting the "Jewel of the North Atlantic", and can make sure that your vacation to Iceland is the perfect trip for you!
Iceland offers visitors a raw and accessible natural environment, a vibrant nightlife and solitude if you want; come and explore for a week or two; visit the fjords, geysers and glaciers; tour small fishing villages or large towns; enjoy some of Iceland's best accommodation, and savour its magnificent food.
If time is at a premium, why not consider stopping over for a couple of days on your way to or from Europe? Icelandair offers great connections from North America to mainland Europe, the UK and Scandinavia.
