With an abundance of natural features including mountains, waterfalls, volcanoes, geysers, hot springs and glaciers – a journey to Iceland is nothing short of a breath-taking experience. Iceland is situated within the Arctic Circle and is relatively isolated from the rest of the European continent. A journey to this fascinating nation will offer many unique opportunities and can be enjoyed either as part of a land-based tour or an ocean cruise.

One of the most popular reasons for traveling to Iceland is to admire the Northern Lights, otherwise known as the Aurora Borealis. This dazzling display in the sky is brought about through particles from the sun colliding with gaseous particles in the earth’s atmosphere. With fully dark nights, the best time to see this unbelievable natural phenomenon is between September and April.

In addition to the natural elements, the Icelandic capital of Reykjavik offers a cosmopolitan city experience. Colourful houses combine with quirky shopping outlets, sumptuous dining venues, a range of fascinating museums, and landmarks including the City Hall and Reykjavik Cathedral. Reykjavik is also home to a number of geothermal swimming pools, which provide an ideal way to warm up on a cold day.
