Look forward to...

Quad biking across eerie rugged landscapes in one of the world’s largest and most breathtaking national parks.

Warming up in the comfort of your outdoor hot tub and watching the phenomenal Northern Lights.

Scuba diving in the watery chasm between two tectonic plates.

Shopping in the stylish city. Your boutique hotel is steps away from renowned shopping street Laugavegur.

If  the world 'Iceland' has you thinking 'cold' and 'mysterious', you're right, but in a good way. What you don't know is that the capital Reykjavic is the ideal spot for a weekend of cool urban chic and hot natural springs.

Quad bike across the rugged landscape, watch the northern lights and scuba dive between tectonic plates: totally unique activities surrounding a city we consider to be among the most cutting-edge in Europe.

From soaking in bubbling thermal pools to tackling dramatic frozen glaciers, you're never in danger of running out of things to do. Looking for action? Snowmobiling and ice climbing are just two days well spent, if diving between tectonic plates isn't your thing. Skiers will be challenged; and for a more laid back weekend, relax your aching muscles in hot natural outdoor baths after a hard day's shopping in the city's hip designer stores.

Stay in the cutting-edge Hotel 101 all year round. Spend summer days hiking the rugged landscapes of Thingvellir national park, and watch bright, multicoloured sunsets, so extraordinary you'll probably start to think you're on the moon. For great Kodak moments you must see Hallgrimskirkja Church, Reykjavik's highest and most imposing structure, as well as Vatnajökull Glacier. The landscape forms here are some of the most beautiful in the world. The mix of blues, whites and practically neon pinks as the sun sets will leave you with some professional - looking photographs even if you're just a beginner.
