A country of sharp contrasts, where fire and ice happily co-exist; where dark winters are offset by the summer’s midnight sun; and where an insular existence and matchless natural wonders have spurred a dynamic, unique cultural scene.

"Iceland may be famous the world over as one of the best spots to catch the elusive Northern Lights, but there’s so much more to explore."

More than just a destination, Iceland is a bucket-list beauty and a real adventure every step of the way.

From its rugged good looks and outstanding contributions from Mother Nature, it’s no wonder the Icelandic people are some of the world’s most creative.

Creating special moments

  1. Ice Adventures

    Ice Adventures

    Experience unspoiled nature and a unique setting on a private tour of Jökulsárlón Ice Lagoon, where huge icebergs calve off Europe’s largest glacier. So incredible are the icy landscapes here, it’s one of Iceland's most popular movie locations, too.

    Movie Star Looks

    With its enormous basalt stacks, roaring Atlantic waves and stunning panoramas, Reynisfjara is the most beautiful of Iceland’s black sand beaches; its south coast location so spectacular, it was also the setting for Game of Thrones’ Eastwatch-by-the-sea.

  3. Mush Mush

    Mush Mush
