Iceland Holidays

Iceland is one of the most beautiful and unique countries in the world, boasting dramatic natural landscapes such as snow-topped mountains, lava formations, glaciers, waterfalls, thermal baths, and geysers. The country boasts Europe’s largest waterfall and glacier and offers a number of incredible once-in-a-lifetime experiences, as well as charming cities and cultural sites. Brightsun Travel offers cheap holiday packages to Iceland.

Book a holiday to Iceland and look forward to taking a dip in the dazzling Blue Lagoon, embarking on the Golden Circle tour of the country’s south coast, and taking part in a whale watching excursion. Iceland is perhaps best known for being a fine place to spot the aurora borealis, aka the northern lights. If you’d like to witness this natural phenomenon, we recommend that you visit in winter between October-March.

Top Destinations In Iceland



Reykjavik overlooks Faxafloi Bay in the south-west of Iceland. The city dates from the ninth century when sea-fearing Vikings established a settlement they called the Bay of Smoke. Reykjavik has grown into a large, modern city, but still retains typical Nordic charm. Buildings are painted in vivid colours to brighten the long, dark winters. Luckily, Reykjavik is far from dull. There are plenty of exciting activities and a busy nightlife with restaurants, clubs and regular live events including the Iceland Airwaves Music Festival. The location is ideal for exploring Iceland's distinctive landscape that's still being shaped by live volcanoes.

Top Things to Do in Iceland

Reykjavik's bewitching natural scenery dominates the city. The Haligrimskirkja church features a revolving glass dome to capture maximum daylight while keeping the landscape in view. The Perlan science museum has a glass domed roof and a planetarium. There are many museums and art galleries devoted to Viking culture and ancient poetic sagas.

Everyone visits the Blue Lagoon, a mineral-rich lake that's surrounded by mountains. It's warmed by the local power station, demonstrating Reykjavik's determination to be one of the world's greenest cities. The Golden Circle includes Iceland's most popular landmarks. The Thingvellir National Park is where two tectonic plates are located; at the point where their edges meet there is a deep lake where diving and snorkelling is an unforgettable experience.

Iceland has numerous geo-thermal geysers, including Strokkur, which erupts to a height of 20 metres every few minutes. Iceland is famous for its waterfalls, most notably the Gullfoss, which flows over two wide, deep ridges, and the semicircular Hravnfossar in the desolate Borgarfjordur region. Iceland is an ideal place to view the northern lights, Aurora Borealis. One of the most popular outdoor activities is watching whales swimming in the Atlantic Ocean.
