Geologically the world’s newest country, Iceland is one of the world’s top holiday destinations for experiencing geographical wonders.
Both fire and ice have shaped the other-worldly landscape that dominates the island, Iceland attracts visitors looking for extreme adventure, breath-taking scenery and indulgent spas. Whether it be relaxing in the thermal waters of the Blue Lagoon spa, snow-mobiling across glaciers, partying with the nocturnal vodka-gulping locals in Reykjavik or soaking up the Northern Lights from your private Jacuzzi – you cannot beat the fascinating geology and quirkiness of this country.
Highlights include the towering waterfalls of Gullfoss, Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss, walking (or diving) between two tectonic plates, being awe-struck by thundering Atlantic surf on the deserted black beach at Reynifjall, swimming in glacial rivers, super-jeeping through Mordor-esque valleys of black ash and white snow, and trekking up the now world-famous volcano, Eyjafjallajökull.
Our tried and tested accommodation will reassure you that there’s plenty of time for rest and relaxation during a luxury holiday in Iceland.
Set in rural isolation on a glacial river, Hotel Ranga is the perfect place to watch out for the Northern Lights from the comfort of your own outdoor jacuzzi. During the summer months Hotel Ranga is also an excellent spot to try your hand at Icelandic salmon fishing and enjoying the fresh produce and local ingredients that are expertly cooked and served at the hotel’s acclaimed gourmet restaurant.
In Reykavik, the minimalist and chic splendor of Hotel 101 is the ideal backdrop from which to explore this tiny city, jam-packed with the unexpected from world famous DJs to boutique shops and endless culinary delights. If art deco is more your style then the centrally located Hotel Borg is elegantly furnished to retain an air of the 1930s with a modern twist.
