Up and Coming Destinations
Reykjavik is a vibrant ancient city with a full range of nightlife while being surrounded by an incredibly varied countryside.
Due to its unusual daylight patterns and location it is still an up and coming destination. In winter there is only a few hours of light (this though offers a great opportunity to see the Northern Lights) and in the summer the sun hardly sets.
The landscape is infectious; you can fill your days with glacier trekking, whale watching, climbing, and Viking festivals. For those that cannot sleep try a little midnight golf. Then relax and enjoy the peace and quiet by heading to the volcanic Westmann Islands.
The Islands do become hectic in August when the National Festival is held and thousands descend on the area for four days of big stage concerts, bonfires and fireworks. Try your hand at the ancient art of “Scaling” and watch the Puffin’s circle their precarious homes.
High season is Mid June to August, but avoid the crowds and see the Northern Lights by coming in between September and March and you will not be disappointed.
