Frequently asked questions

What is there to see and do in Reykjavik?

There are plenty of attractions in Reykjavík, including Hallgrimskirkja church, Harpa Concert Hall, the Old Harbour, and multiple shopping streets, museums, galleries, theatres and live entertainment venues. There are also numerous sculpture gardens and parks, along with avenues lined with street art, restaurants and cafes.

What can I see and do on a day tour from Reykjavik?

There is no shortage of activities during the day while spending the night in Reykjavik. You can journey throughout the Golden Circle, visit the famous Blue Lagoon, see the dramatic sights of the South Coast or explore the beautiful Snaefellsnes peninsula. Alternatively, you can spend your time doing an adventure tour such as heading out to sea for whale watching, exploring trails while horseback riding, going snorkeling in Iceland's pristine waters, driving an ATV on the black sand beaches, or traversing a glacier on a snowmobile tour or by going glacier hiking.

What is there to see and do in Akureyri?

Akureyri is the second largest town in Iceland and has a number of shops, galleries, cafés, and swimming pools, as well as the iconic Akureyri church. There is also an excellent botanical garden, a famous ice cream shop and an active music and art scene. Beautiful mountain and fjord views can be seen from central Akureyri, and in winter the town boasts the best ski area in the country, Hlidarfjall. Nearby, there are many natural attractions, such as Godafoss waterfall.

What is there to see and do at Lake Myvatn?

Lake Myvatn itself is known for its stunning flora and fauna, but surrounding it are multiple craters and beautiful rock formations. Visit Skutustadagigar craters, hike around Hverfell mountain, walk the trails of Dimmuborgir lava field, bathe in the Myvatn Nature Baths, admire the colors of Namaskard pass, and visit the famous Grjotagja cave. You can also visit the crater Viti in Krafla volcano or go see Europe’s most powerful waterfall, Dettifoss.

What is there to see and do in the Westfjords?

The Westfjords are the most remote area in Iceland and are hard to access during wintertime (but great for backcountry skiing). In summer, however, you can kayak the fjords, hike its table-top mountains, visit a number of interesting museums or go hot spring hunting. Also available to you are bird watching, spotting seals on the red sands of Raudasandur, and, of course, admiring Dynjandi waterfall, the crown of the Westfjords.

What can I see on the South Coast of Iceland?

Iceland’s South Coast has many popular attractions, including the waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss. Seljavallalaug pool, Reynisfjara black sand beach and Solheimajokull glacier all draw travelers to the area as well. The villages of Vik and Kirkjubaejarklaustur can also be found there, as can the Reynisdrangar sea-stacks, Dyrholaey cliffs, the Skaftafell Nature Reserve and Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon.

What can I see and do on Snaefellsnes peninsula?

Snaefellsnes Peninsula is often called 'Iceland in miniature' because it is home to an incredibly diverse array of natural features. These include a glacier and a volcano, craters, lava fields, caves, waterfalls, black and white beaches, beautiful fishing villages and so much more. Hike on Snaefellsjokull glacier, photograph Kirkjufell mountain and Budir black church, stroll down Djupalonssandur black sand beach and take in the stunning views in all directions at Gatklettur rock by Arnarstapi and Hellnar shore.

What is there to see and do in East Iceland and around Egilsstadir?

If you like hiking, you have plenty of options in the rugged mountains in East Iceland. Hike up Mt. Snaefell, into the mountain ranges Kverkfjoll and Dyrfjoll, the stunning Hafrahvammar canyon or Laugarvalladalur valley with a spectacular natural hot spring waterfall. For shorter hikes, walk through Iceland’s largest forest, Hallormsstadaskogur, and try to spot a monster in Lake Lagarfljot. Alternatively, trek up to Hengifoss waterfall, visit the colorful town of Seydisfjordur or go on a super jeep tour to Askja in the Highlands.

What is there to see and do around Skaftafell?

Skaftafell used to be a national park in its own right until it was expanded and merged with Vatnajokull National Park. Multiple glacier hiking tours run from there, as well as to nearby Svinafellsjokull glacier. A campsite and service center is located in Skaftafell, where travelers can rest before continuing on their journey.

What is there to see and do in the Icelandic Highlands?

The Highlands are the wildest and harshest landscapes you’ll find in Iceland. There are lakes, mountains, rivers, waterfalls, glaciers and volcanoes throughout. Popular areas include Landmannalaugar, Thorsmork, Kerlingarfjoll, Hveravellir and Viti Crater in Askja Caldera. Traversing the Icelandic highlands is only for the most experienced hikers and travelers as it is nearly completely inhabitated, far from modern comforts, and the weather is significantly colder than along the coastline.
