Places to Visit in Iceland

Every corner of Iceland has something special to offer. For first time visitors or for those taking a shorter trip, the southwest is a jam-packed place to start. Spending a night or two in Reykjavik, it’s then time to hit the road to explore the highlights of Iceland’s iconic Golden Circle, where you’ll find glaciers, thundering waterfalls and the Silfra Fissure, ending with a relaxing soak in the legendary Blue Lagoon.

Places to visit

For those looking to get under the skin of the country and explore the best places to visit in Iceland; the Snaefellsnes Peninsula in the west offers beautiful stretches of coast and is famed for its horse-riding. The north is home to heli-skiing in the winter and whale watching in the summer, with Mars-like landscapes and hidden thermal lagoons. The east is wonderfully remote, where you’ll find striking fjords and vast puffin colonies, whereas the south coast is home to enormous glaciers, black sand beaches and the spectacular Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon.
