The options here really do cater for every kind of traveller, from non-stop exertion to total relaxation. The trek from Landmannalaugar to Thorsmörk is popular with domestic as well as tourist hikers and is one of the most well-loved in all of Iceland. It is perfect for an experienced hiker who knows they would enjoy days out in the wilderness, and nights in huts under the stars. Each day provides different challenges, from steep declines, scaling uphills, narrow gorges and wading through streams.

Reykjavik is a name which conjures up visions of the pristine beauty of Iceland itself, and the capital has a lot to offer. A compact city, Reykjavik has lots to offer travellers of all kinds. From local pubs to fine dining, excursions into the wilderness or a stroll through the Hljómskálagarður Park – there really is something here for everyone.

Animal lovers should consider the Helka adventure. Iceland is a nation with strong traditions and connections to their sometimes pint-sized horse. This offers you a wonderful opportunity to live that history yourself! And if you’ve been drawn North to catch a glimpse of some of the world’s most majestic creatures, then the unmissable whale spotting trip is a must!

A major draw for many tourists is experiencing the arctic while always being close to civilisation and a warm bed! If that’s piqued your interest, then the Jokulsarlon trip or the longer excursion to Greenland will give you a taste of the icy magic of the true North. And if you want a taste of all of this, then the 10-day family holiday is for you. Offering you a bespoke and unforgettable time, you and your family will enjoy all that Iceland has to offer.
