Iceland Holidays

Imagine driving through a land where volcanoes loom above vast icecaps or hiking through moss-clad lava fields to a waterfall crashing over 100m-tall cliffs. Imagine a coastline where black-sand beaches stretch as far as the eye can see, or where colourful fishing villages lie scattered like confetti through majestic fjords. Iceland's natural wonders and vibrant culture can be explored year round – from summer under the midnight sun to winter in the glow of the northern lights.

The world's leading operator to the Land of Fire and Ice, we've been creating Iceland holidays for 40 years. You won't find a more comprehensive or exciting collection of holidays to Iceland available anywhere.

Now is a great time to head to Iceland with the recent volcanic activity on the Reykjanes Peninsula showcasing the extraordinary geological make-up of this country, which is open and safe to visit. Travel writer, William Gray, talks to the experts to find out why.

Now is a great time to visit Iceland

“We had a fantastic time in Iceland. Thank you for your quick change in sorting out our last hotel after our original one closed due to volcanic activity. We managed to go to the Blue Lagoon without any worries which we loved and actually seeing all the lava fields and recent volcanic activity was amazing, certainly something you don’t see every day!”
Holly Madill, Iceland Self Drive, March 2024

“We wondered if we would even get to the Northern Light Inn just outside of Grindavik, the town evacuated last November, and were rerouted along roads unaffected by lava flow and through police check points and across a still-smoking lava field, to find a busy hotel with cheerful staff, lots of guests with children, and a great restaurant. On the hill outside, earth moving vehicles were still working on a lava barrier. It was fascinating – and at no point did we feel unsafe. Great trip with an unexpected twist at the end.”
Erik, Iceland Self Drive, June 2024

Planning a trip to Iceland

On a self-drive holiday choose winding coastal routes, easy-going circuits linking popular highlights or spectacular 4WD routes in the interior.

Visit in the winter months and our northern lights holidays offer the electrifying prospect of the seeing the aurora borealis as well as the opportunity to hike on glaciers, go snowmobiling or take an adrenaline-filled Superjeep ride off the beaten track. A winter self-drive is surprisingly accessible and of course, it’s less busy than summer, so you might well find a natural wonder all to yourself. Meanwhile, our small-group escorted tours take you in search of everything from orcas to ice caves.

When to Go to Iceland

Despite its name and close proximity to the Arctic Circle, Iceland is not a frozen frontier perpetually locked in ice – a branch of the Gulf Stream brushes its southern and western coasts bringing mild Atlantic air across the country. This not only moderates the climate, but can also create changeable weather. You really can experience all four seasons in one day!

Iceland is a year-round destination, punctuated by two heavenly highlights: the midnight sun in summer and the northern lights in winter. But every season has its special appeal.

Iceland makes a brilliant location for a winter break. Spend a weekend away based in the secluded countryside, perfect for northern lights hunting at night and exploring the sights by day.

Spend your summer exploring under Iceland’s midnight sun. Travel one of the world’s classic drives, Route 1 – an irresistible loop around the Land of Fire and Ice with our Around Iceland holiday.
