Get a Great Value Holiday As Now is the Time to Go to Iceland and Save Money!

One of the amazing advantages for tourists is that Iceland is incredibly different to the rest of Europe and yet is only a short flight away. The major attractions of Iceland are natural – stunning waterfalls, steaming geysers, dazzling glaciers and of course the beautiful Northern Lights.

One of the big decisions for travelers is deciding when to go to Iceland. Summers in Iceland are quite warm and winters are not quite as cold as you might think, though obviously warm clothing is a must. Some days can start out warm and quickly descend into a veil of fog, wind and ice so you should always come prepared for every type of weather. The high season in Iceland is from June to August and so prices may be inflated at this time of year. To keep up to date on daily weather conditions call the Icelandic Meteorological Office locally on 902 0600.

Some of the must-see parts of Iceland are the capital Reykjavik which is the most northerly capital city in the world. Reykjavik is famous for having an excellent nightlife so be sure to head out after dark. During the day visit the amazing Blue Lagoon spa which makes use of the healing power of the geysers and stroll through the pretty streets with their coloured buildings. More geysers and waterfalls can be seen in the Golden Circle and the various national parks such as Skaftafell National Park which is the largest national park in Europe. The West Fjords is another area of rugged beauty which is well worth seeing, while the Vestmannaeyjar are a group of volcanically active islands in the south of the country. If you go to the North of Iceland there are impressive lava fields to be seen. Get yourself a good four by four car and you can visit all of these different areas without trouble.

Among the great discounts on offer are with Iceland Air which has a number of special packages. You can enjoy a Northern lights Special (a city break which includes a Northern Lights tour hunt) for £269 from London, and this is valid up until Christmas. Another good deal run by Iceland Air is for the Iceland Airwaves festival. You get plane tickets, hotel accommodation and entry fees to the concert for the cost of £369. Iceland Airwaves takes place from October 14-18 annually and includes more than 100 Scandinavian and North American acts.
