Iceland is a wild, rugged country offering exciting trips that connect you with nature you simply won’t find anywhere else. Tour the famous Golden Circle, with its stunning glaciers and waterfalls, or head west for a visit to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Don’t miss the gorgeous iceberg-filled Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, one of the country’s most popular attractions.
Only a fraction of visitors to Iceland make it across to the far-flung west, and the lack of tourists make its landscapes and villages a dream to explore.
Learn about the devastating effects of a volcano eruption which rocked the Westman Islands in 1973, leaving large swaths of town buried beneath ash and lava and earning the moniker “Pompeii of the North”.

The Blue Lagoon is most easily visited on your way to or from the airport using a bus transfer that departs every hour.
