Another must-see attraction is the stunning Gullfoss waterfall, which cascades down two tiers into a deep canyon. And no trip to the Golden Circle is complete without a visit to the geothermal area of Geysir, where visitors can witness the spectacular eruptions of the hot springs. From charming boutique hotels to lavish lodges surrounded by untouched wilderness, there are plenty of options for those seeking a high-end tour of The Golden Circle. Take a dip in natural hot springs or indulge in personalized spa treatments while admiring the breathtaking beauty of Iceland’s natural landscapes.

Known for being one of the most LGBTQ+-friendly countries in the world, same-sex marriage has been legal in Iceland since 2010, and the country was the first in the world to elect an openly gay head of state. Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity is illegal, and the country has a vibrant LGBTQ+ population.
Nestled in a secluded valley, the Seljavallalaug Hot Spring is a true hidden treasure that promises a serene and distinctive experience. Constructed in 1923, this is one of Iceland’s oldest swimming pools, and it is supplied by a natural hot spring. The pool is enveloped by breathtaking mountains and is an ideal spot to unwind and appreciate the splendor of Iceland’s countryside. It’s worth mentioning that the pool is not maintained by the government, and it’s the responsibility of visitors to keep it tidy.
Nestled in Iceland lies a hidden treasure known as Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon. This natural wonder offers a one-of-a-kind hiking experience, with breathtaking views that will leave you in awe. The canyon stretches for about 2 kilometers and is up to 100 meters deep, with a river flowing through its base. As you hike along the canyon’s edge, you’ll be treated to stunning vistas of the surrounding mountains and waterfalls.
Nestled in the western region of Iceland lies the stunning Hraunfossar Waterfall, a true hidden gem waiting to be discovered. This natural wonder is composed of a series of small waterfalls that cascade out of the lava fields, creating a breathtaking sight to behold. The falls are surrounded by lush greenery, providing a tranquil and serene environment for visitors to enjoy. Wooden walkways allow for easy exploration of the falls from various angles, making it a photographer’s dream and an ideal spot to unwind and soak in the beauty of nature.
Iceland is a prime destination for those seeking to witness the awe-inspiring Northern Lights. The best time to catch this natural phenomenon is during the months of September to April when the nights are the longest and the skies are clearest. To fully experience the beauty of the Northern Lights, it’s best to venture away from the bright lights of the city and head to locations such as Skaftafell National Park, Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, and the remote Westfjords.
With a variety of deluxe accommodations to choose from, including private cabins, boutique hotels, and lodges with breathtaking views, you can indulge in the ultimate level of luxury during your Northern Lights experience. Some of these accommodations even offer unique amenities like private outdoor hot tubs or observatories, allowing you to witness the beauty of the Northern Lights in style.
Iceland is a land of adventure and relaxation. While the Northern Lights is a must-see attraction, there are plenty of other thrilling activities to enjoy. Take a ride on a dog sled, hop on a snowmobile, or hike across a glacier. If you’re looking for a more laid-back experience, treat yourself to a luxurious spa treatment or soak in one of Iceland’s many natural hot springs. Whatever your preference, Iceland has something for everyone.

Keflavik International Airport is the primary hub for international flights, with many airlines offering direct flights from major cities in Europe, North America, and Asia. Some of the airlines that fly to Iceland include Icelandair, WOW Air, Delta, United, and British Airways.
For those seeking a more unique and picturesque way to travel to Iceland, ferries are a great option. Smyril Line is the primary ferry operator, offering a weekly service from Denmark to Iceland with stops in the Faroe Islands. The journey takes approximately three days and provides breathtaking views of the North Atlantic Ocean. While there are occasional ferry services from other countries like Norway and Germany, they are less frequent and may require multiple transfers.
While Iceland does have a public transportation system, it is limited compared to other countries. The main form of public transportation is buses, which operate in and between cities and towns. The largest bus company is Strætó, which offers both local and long-distance routes.
