travel highlights iceland

Animal watching
Iceland is a perfect spot for animal watching. Starting with whale watching. There are more than 20 different species around Iceland, from Humpback to Orca. But it is also perfect for bird watching - here you can see the Atlantic puffins Iceland is famous for.

Aurora Borealis
You need a little bit of luck to see them, but from September till April the chances are good to witness the Northern Lights. When the weather and Aurora forecast are right you can see them anywhere on the island outside the cities. Just keep looking for really dark spaces and be patient. And if you are not lucky, visit the Northern Lights Museum in Reykjavic, where you can learn a lot about this miracle.

Blue Lagoon
Blue Lagoon, Iceland's most famous travel highlight, is a natural hot spring built into a geothermal Spa. Here you can enjoy the warm, milky blue water while sitting in the middle of an snowcapped vulcano landscape.

Golden Circle
On a Golden Circle tour you can combine visiting three of Iceland's main sights: start your tour with Thingvellir National Park. Here you can witness the result of the tectonic plates moving a few centimeters every year. Then your trip will bring you to Geysir, where water is shot up in the air for 30 meters every few minutes. Your journey will then proceed to Gulfoss, the golden waterfall. 

Jokulsarlon lagoon
Iceland's glacier lagoon is one of the islands true highlights. Even during summer you can enjoy the impressive icebergs arising from the sea. Take a guided walking tour or a boat trip to get the best possible impression of this area.

The 'smoky bay' has all the advantages of a capital city in a quite relaxing atmosphere created by, among other things, the beautiful old houses. Icelandic people work hard and party even harder, so it is no surprise that there is great nightlife in Reykjavic.
