Luxury Holidays in Iceland

If ever there was nation shaped by the forces of nature, it’s Iceland. The elements of wind, fire and water have buffeted, sculptured, and pummelled this island, leaving Arctic glaciers, smoking geysers, volcanoes, and fjords in their trail. And yet, it is more than rugged natural wonders that lure guests to Iceland. Lightfoot Travel can tailor-make a luxury holiday to Iceland for you using knowledge gleaned from our own travels.

Cool Reykjavik is one of our favourite small cities in Europe. Hip boutique hotels, an electric nightlife scene, leading art galleries, super-friendly locals and a unique Nordic way of life contribute to this captivating capital city. We recommend Reykjavik as an essential stop before heading out to the wild surrounding lands.

If you’re the adventurous type, you’ll love the Reykjanes Peninsula. This UNESCO Global Geopark is Iceland’s most jaw-dropping outdoor playground and home to the geothermal spa Blue Lagoon. The stark contrast between the neon blue water and the dark volcanic rocks here is an awe-inspiring, as is the steam that rises like a smoke machine.

You’ll also find some of the finest hiking in the world and a fascinating geological history.

Ancient volcanic eruptions have scarred the landscapes, scattered geothermal pools mix with Arctic winds, and the aurora borealis lights up sky and stark tundra beneath. Experiences in Iceland can range from glacier caving and walking to whale watching, from fjord boat tours to just relaxing in a natural hot spring pool.

Luxury Family Holidays in Iceland

Chasing the Northern Lights, going husky dog-sledging, capturing images of volcanoes and glaciers on a photography expedition, or exploring the eclectic Reykjavik, a family holiday in Iceland offers a fascinating geological history and cool Nordic culture for travellers of all ages. Let our Lightfoot Travel experts devise a wholly customisable itinerary in this winter wonderland.

Make the most of the long summer days to explore Iceland’s geothermal and natural wonders like the famed Strokkur geyser and the spectacular Gullfoss waterfall in Thingvellir National Park.

Swimming in the country's geothermal waters is a favourite activity of the Icelandic nation. Soak up the minerals in the geothermal spa Blue Lagoon, then take an exciting helicopter tour to marvel at the Vatnajokull Glacier, Europe’s largest glacier, from above. Depending on the season, head out on a whale watching cruise – kids and adults alike will love catching sight of mink whales, white-beaked dolphins and humpback whales.
