The best things to see and do in Iceland

Iceland is known for its stunning and dramatic nature. From the towering geysirs, to the adorable puffins venturing along the coastline, you’re never shy of first experiences.

With the winter months fast approaching, now is the best time to discover Iceland and all it’s beauty. We’ve provided a handy must-see list of places to visit during your stay below.

Game of Thrones tour

Game of Thrones fans won’t want to miss this tour! Taking you to a plethora of stunning filming locations seen in the epic fantasy show of the century.

Trace the footsteps of your favourite characters through beautiful scenery where the characters loved, fought, and marched onwards to claim their rightful destiny – though with far fewer dragons!

This tour takes you to a variety of locations and you’ll get to experience these natural wonders just as the cast members did. Take in the majestic sweeping views, feel the spray of the dancing waterfalls, capture the distant panoramas, and experience the stunning stillness and solitude of the land.

Golden Circle tour

Iceland is well known for its stunning natural landscape, so it’s no wonder there’s plenty to discover on your trip. For an all round day-tour to experience most of the dramatic views, make sure you book a Golden Circle tour.

A full day excursion, the guided coach trip will take you to several highlights, including Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss Waterfall and Strokkur Waterspout where you’ll fully experience the epic bubbling geysirs.

No matter what time of year you visit, you’re guaranteed to be blown away by the views. But if you’re travelling during the winter months make sure you wrap up warm. Recorded temperatures in the area can reach as low as -11 degrees Celsius!

Blue Lagoon

For a more relaxing time, visiting the Blue Lagoon is a must. The picturesque natural hot spring is the perfect Instagram moment. Surrounded by mountains, the water is naturally sky blue, and the warm temperatures keeps you feeling cosy as you float along in total bliss.

For an extra spa treatment, take advantage of the natural clay masks on offer, and feel your worries float away.

Visit Reykjavik

The capital city of Iceland, Reykjavik, is a must-visit. With a population of only 135,000, it’s one of the smallest capitals in the world, but by no means the least exciting. Surrounded by beautiful waters and mountains, it’s easy to spend your day taking in the natural views. But make sure you head in to town for the quaint shops, restaurants, and bars.

If you’re looking to experience the natural cuisine, there’s plenty of places offering traditional rye bread and salted fish. If you’re feeling extra adventurous we recommend trying the fermented shark, a staple of the Icelandic people, particularly during the winter months.

A short walk out of town is the Natural Museum of Iceland, which includes one of the world’s largest indoor ice caves. A definite to take part in as you’ll be guided along learning more of Iceland’s history in a truly immersive way.

Puffin sightseeing and Whale Watching

To discover the wildlife of Iceland, we highly recommend booking a puffin and whale watching tour. These magnificent creatures – both big and small – are incredible to see in person. Whether they’re waddling over the rocky landscape or wadding through the icy waters.

See both during your stay here.

Northern Lights

An honourable mention of course has to be made to the Northern Lights. A stunning natural phenomenon, scientifically known as the Aurora Borealis. Visible throughout the northern territories, especially Iceland.

Guided tours are available throughout the year, though we recommend visiting between November – March for the best views.
