An arctic wilderness dotted with geothermal lagoons, cloud-shrouded volcanic peaks, glacial rivers and geysers. Reached by a short flight from the UK, Europe’s least densely populated country exudes an air of dramatic mystery. Picturesque fishing villages invite a visit, while those seeking adventure can go snowmobiling on the Mýrdalsjökull Glacier, camp on the ice, take a helicopter flight, go dog sledding or explore remote hideaways by Super Jeep. The thrill of the wild is matched by the vibrancy of Reykjavik with its Icelandic designer fashion and craft shops, cutting edge galleries, eclectic collection of restaurants – Icelandic Tapas is a revelation - and full-on nightlife. Stroll the streets to discover an enchanting mix of old and new, the small painted houses rubbing shoulders with ultra-contemporary hotels and the stunning glass opera house.
