Iceland

Iceland’s landscapes are dazzlingly dramatic, with hot springs, waterfalls, glaciers, geysers and black-sand beaches waiting to be discovered. The lifestyle here is relaxed but also very active; the daytime attractions of ice climbing, hiking and snowmobiling abound and the vibrant nightlife scene in Reykjavik run until the early hours.

At a glance

In Iceland you can walk from Europe to North America in seconds at the Reykjanes Peninsula which spans a gaping rift between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates.

You can also swim in geothermal baths, the famous Blue Lagoon and find a hugely tolerant and welcoming society.

At Out Of Office we are able to plan and customise your perfect trip. From snowmobiling on an Icelandic glacier to a helicopter ride over a waterfall, simply let us know what you want to do and we’ll plan the perfect getaway to Iceland.

Travel Information

A country known for its incredible geological features including incredible waterfalls, exploding geysers, awesome glaciers, and hot natural springs! The capital city Reykjavik has lots to offer as well. A nice addition to all the nature you will be experiencing, take a stroll along the harbour where you’ll see all the fishing boats come in and out. For those who like art, take a stroll along Skólavörðustígur where you will find many galleries. You’ll then reach Hallgrímskirkja which is Reykjavik’s famous concrete church. We recommend a visit to the Einar Jónsson Museum where you’ll find many unusual sculptures.

There are plenty of wonderful authentic restaurants for you to try in Reykjavik along with many cute cafes, which are great for breakfast. Of course, you can’t miss the splendid nature and wildlife. Due to Iceland sitting on top of a fault line, where tectonic plates meet, it has many geological formations including waterfalls, geothermal springs, geysers, glaciers and mountain ranges, so a fantastic place to visit if you love geography and nature.

It’s a must, and close to the airport so you can either start or end your trip with a visit to the world-famous Blue Lagoon Geothermal Spa. The water is said to have age-defying natural minerals and has also known to have healed several medical skin conditions. Due to the geothermal activity which occurs directly below, the water is naturally heated to a toasty 38 degrees centigrade.

Head out to sea for a spot of whale watching. Húsavík is Iceland’s whale watching capital and is home to many different species including humpback, Minke and killer (orca) whales. It is also common to spot Dolphins and Porpoises in the Icelandic waters so make sure you have your camera at the ready.

For those looking for an active adventure, a glacier trek is perfect. There are lots of glaciers in Iceland for you to choose from. A professional guide will take you up on top of the glacier and will safely guide you through it, and will point out many of the interesting features. An experience you won’t find in many other countries.
