Iceland Weekend Break Overview
Become acquainted with the city sights and spectacular surrounds of Iceland’s other-worldly capital, Reykjavik.
- 2014-01-01 - 2014-12-31
Spend an extended weekend getting to know quirky and entrancing Reykjavik.
Uncover the sights and delights of the world’s northernmost capital city on this extended weekend jaunt in Reykjavik. Explore the city’s eclectic galleries and live music venues, learn about Icelandic lore and legends at the National Museum, or – when the evening air starts getting a little too brisk – sample some local delicacies in one of the cosy restaurants lining the streets. Take in the dramatic falls of Gullfoss, wander through the steaming terrain of the Geysir geothermal field and top it all off with a soak in the Blue Lagoon. Alone and adrift, way off the European mainland, Iceland’s isolation has given rise to a unique natural landscape and cultural eccentricity that will thrill and enchant those joining this special little adventure.
What's included in this trip
Iceland Weekend Break SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Get a feel for this scenic little capital with a wander through the atmospheric city streets, chock-full of kooky street-art and intriguing sculptures against stunning mountain vistas. Suss out the thriving local music scene and countless dining options by night.
Discover some of Reykjavik’s lesser-known quirks and attractions on a guided walk of the city, before heading out to see some of the surrounding natural phenomena. Gawk at thundering Gullfoss, dodge Strokkur Geysir’s intermittent upsurges of steam, and peer over Thingvellir’s deep ravines.
Spend the day at your leisure, perhaps setting out for some whale-watching or horse-riding, visiting any of the invariably off-the-wall galleries and exhibitions (the Phallological Museum, anyone?), or knocking back a coffee in any number of quaint cafes.
Maybe head out for a dip in the phantasmagorical Blue Lagoon before this memorable Icelandic weekend draws to a close.
