Holiday homes and rentals in Iceland
Iceland’s capital city, Reykjavik, is on the coast in the south-west of the island, and while most of the country’s residents make their home here, do make sure to venture out further – much further! Holiday homes in Iceland are available for you almost everywhere outside of the Vatnajökull National Park, giving you the chance to explore the whole of this extraordinary island. Consider booking your holiday in the villages around the outer edges of the country to experience the true Iceland and to access the many incredible natural phenomena it has to offer.Traditional Icelandic holiday homes
Iceland is breathtaking, and it’s also cold, so it’s natural that the holiday homes are built both with large windows to give the greatest vista of the staggering beauty of the country, and cosy, warm and comfortable interiors. Many Icelandic holiday homes are made from wood, as this is a common building material in Iceland. Reykjavik features attractive, modern and, of course, warm properties in the centre of this fascinating city. Don’t delay – book today and visit this country of outstanding natural beauty.

The area and getting around
A land of fire and ice
The natural incongruity of fiery volcanoes and the icy glaciers make Iceland unique, and truly extraordinary. Ever wanted to jump into a warm water lake and then get out and roll in snow? Here’s your chance! Hike across ancient volcano flows and marvel at glacial rivers, then visit one of its peculiarly beautiful jet black beaches.
Travellers and activities
Stepping off the beaten track in Iceland must be done with care, and a guide. But the rewards are amazing and the memories you’ll make will last a lifetime. Iceland is an incredible place for hikers of all fitness levels – just ensure your guide knows what you are capable of. For those interested in watery adventures, consider diving or snorkelling in the Silfra rift, where you can swim between two tectonic plates, that of North America and Eurasia – the only place on the planet where this is possible!Iceland for couples
If romance blossoms in beautiful surroundings, you’re going to be in the perfect location for love in Iceland. Take a tour around Gullfoss where a truly spectacular waterfall, viewable on two levels, sparkles with a colourful rainbow when the sun shines through the spray. Nauthólsvík geothermal beach in Reykjavík has soft, golden sand and a warm lagoon and hot tubs – a relaxing way to spend your day together. Finish your day with a delightful Icelandic meal then when the night falls, and from late August to mid-April, watch the Northern Lights dance across the sky!
Most of Iceland’s population live in its capital city, Reykjavik, and the city runs almost entirely on eco-friendly geothermal power!
