Pack your thermals and fly into Iceland
Contrary to its name, only a small percentage of Iceland's landscapes are glacial. The island nation is arguably one of the most beautiful in all of Europe with a mix of wild rivers, geothermic hot spots, arctic coastline and rugged highlands. Come on board a Qantas, Cathay Pacific, British Airways or Scandinavian Airlines flight, disembarking at Keflavik Airport around half an hour from capital city Reykjavik.
Take a tour of Iceland's natural beauty
Join a tour and see one of the most popular attractions in Iceland, the Golden Circle – a 300 kilometre stretch reaching from Reykjavik into Central Iceland with major stops at Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss Waterfall and the Haukadalur geothermal geysers. Other sights not to miss include the Blue Lagoon and the Aurora Borealis, easily accessed by joining a tour.
Drive the Ring Road with a hire car
Tucked between Greenland and Western Europe in the North Atlantic Ocean, Iceland is something else. When the snow melts and the warm weather returns, book a hire car and see Iceland by road to fully appreciate its natural assets. Travel on the Ring Road (Route 1) to take in the entire country and watch the landscape morph before your eyes.
