Iceland is an island country in the North Atlantic Ocean, north west of the British Isles on the edge of the Arctic. Geologically active volcanoes, hot springs and pools; mountains, glaciers and geysers, make Iceland a fabulous adventure holiday destination.
Natural eruptions of lava, gushing geysers, hot springs, searing fissures and slow, grinding glaciers are so dramatic, that at times they seem ethereal.
Contrary to its name, Iceland has a fairly mild climate thanks to the Gulf Stream. Between June and July, there is almost 24 hours daylight. Northern Lights sightings are best viewed between November to February. Bird watching is best done between May and June; while botany visits are best scheduled from June to August.
Reykjavik the country’s capital, makes a vibrant and charming city break. This green destination must contain the world’s highest concentration of dreamers, authors, poets and musicians; whom you’ll meet on the high-spirited runtur, or weekend pub crawl.
Northern Lights and Whale Watching are experiences that enthral the imagination. The lights can easily be seen on dark Arctic winter nights and astronomers help you examine the night skies in greater detail.
Marine and animal enthusiasts can encounter the Arctic Fox, mink, mice, rabbits and reindeer. Polar bears can be commonly seen, travelling through mainly on icebergs to Greenland.
Iceland is a experience destination of refreshing surprises, that’s truly worth your while.
