Iceland Discovery SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Whether bathed in 22 hours of sunlight or hidden under a shroud of darkness, Reykjavik always shines with life, creativity, beauty and warmth of character.
The small town of Hvolsvollur lies in a sparse, green valley with snow-capped mountains looming in the distance.
Alive with cliffs full of birds, remarkable black-sand beaches and tumultuous waters, Vik may be small in size but it's big on beauty.
Set on a picturesque harbour, Hofn is on the Ring Road that circles Iceland and is close to Vatnajokull, Europe's biggest glacier.
Sitting on the banks of the Lagarfljot River and close to Iceland's largest forest, Egilsstadir is a relatively new town that was established in 1947.
Active volcanoes, lush wetlands and an abundance of birdlife surround Myvatn, making it an intriguing place to visit due to its unusual landscape.
Hrutafjordur is a tiny village in northwest Iceland with a notable church and a stunning locale.
Snaefellsnes is both a peninsula brimming with fjords, glaciers, lava fields and sea cliffs, and the setting of Jules Verne's 'Journey to the Center of the Earth'.
Reykjavik, the world's northernmost capital, has an enviable music scene, intoxicating geothermal pools, great restaurants and excellent museums and galleries.
