Alongside its stunning natural beauty, breathtaking landscapes and Nordic icy views, Iceland allows visitors to tick some of the world’s best sights off their bucket list. Here are some of the top sights to see during your 2023 Iceland holiday.
The Golden Circle
Iceland’s Golden Circle is easily one of the country’s most iconic and beloved sightseeing routes. Sometimes referred to as the ‘the Golden Triangle’, the route consists of three beautiful locations: the magnificent Gullfoss Waterfall, Geysir Geothermal Field, and Thingvellir National Park. These sites are renowned across the world and are all as spectacular as they are unique. None of them is further than a two hour's drive from Reykjavík, and thus all three can be visited within a day.
The Northern Lights
The bright, dancing colours of the Northern Lights, or Aurora borealis, are as mysterious to some as they are beautiful. Shades of red, blue, green, yellow, and violet can be seen in the night sky, enchanting viewers and making unforgettable memories. Our Iceland northern lights tours take you away from the city lights of Reykjavik into the rural landscape of Iceland to get a clear view of the phenomenon.
The Blue Lagoon:
The milky blue water of the Blue Lagoon is something everyone should see at least one in their lifetime. The body of water is a geothermal spa found on the Reykjanes Peninsula in southwest Iceland. The combination of the warm water and the rich mud, which can be literally scraped off the bottom of the ground and used as a natural clay mask, is believed to fully rejuvenate the body, mind, and skin.
