Iceland is one of Europe’s fastest growing tourist destinations and with so much beauty, variety and culture, it’s no wonder that tourists keep returning to the island. If you haven’t yet been and are wondering if Iceland is for you, be inspired our top 5 reasons to travel to Iceland:



  • For a trip that’s suitable for any age or traveller. Whether you’re travelling with children, with friends, as a couple or going solo, Iceland is the perfect destination. Children and adults alike will be blown away by the dramatic cliffs of the fjords or the thrill of seeing a whale up close.

  • For a culture trip. Reykjavik is well known for its artsy atmosphere and you will notice this as soon as you step foot in this cool city, with cool bars, cafes, museums, galleries and shops around every corner.

  • For delicious food. Stay in Reykjavik for a taste of haute cuisine in any of the cool, minimalistic restaurants that are becoming famous here, or go off the beaten track; going on a fishing trip in the afternoon to catch your evening meal. Iceland’s fresh seafood is unbeatable and this alone is well worth the trip!

  • For an experience of Iceland’s animals. See the wild ponies that roam the fjords here as you hike around this incredible location. Visit the westman islands to see the famous puffins that live here in their hundreds. Go on a once in a lifetime cruise to see the whales and killer whales that live in the waters surrounding Iceland.  

  • For more natural beauty than you’ve ever seen. Visit one of the many stunning waterfalls, fjords, villages, beaches, cities or forests here, which are almost entirely untouched. Godafoss, meaning ‘the waterfall of the gods’ is just one unmissable spot, why not have a picnic here to truly enjoy it. The black sand beach is just one example of an incredible Icelandic cove, with so many more, such as Diamond Beach.

Start planning your Iceland nature tour

A truly unique island in northern Europe, Iceland’s natural landscapes will leave you in awe. Its raw beauty comprises deep, dark valleys, active volcanoes, black-sand beaches, and stunning fjords. The untouched landscapes here makes Iceland one of the best places in the world to see nature at its finest.

What makes Iceland's nature unique?  

Iceland’s varied landscapes, from the dramatic cliffs of the craggy coastline, to the vast, remote mountain ranges in its centre, make it a truly special place for nature lovers. It has two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the Vatnajökull National Park where volcanoes are notoriously active and gorgeous waterfalls tumble down vertiginous cliffs. 

The best national parks and natural sites in Iceland  

Iceland is known for many natural sites, such as the black sand beaches at Vik, and the many icebergs at Jökulsárlón. Whether world-famous or lesser-known, here are some attractions you should visit on your Iceland tour. 

Take a bath in Laugarvatn Fontana 

Laugarvatn Fontana is the perfect place to stay warm in an often cold country. These geothermal pools are built on top of natural hot springs, so strip off and jump in for a relaxing bath. Here, you also have the chance to bake bread in the ground around the pool, as geothermal waters bubble beneath the surface of the soil, hot enough to make a traditional steamed loaf. 

Visit the Askja calderas

The Askja is a complex of nested calderas located in the highlands of the Dyngjufjöll mountains. Visit the vast craters, then admire the Drekagil canyon nearby, also known as the “canyon of dragons”. Situated in quite a remote area of Iceland, the roads to the Askja are open from June to October. 

Be amazed by the northern lights 

While most natural attractions around the world are physical sites, the northern lights are a slightly less tangible highlight. Often the reason many visitors come to Iceland, the northern lights, or aurora borealis, is a stunning natural phenomenon, where threads of green light dance across the skies. 

Stand beneath the Seljalandsfoss Waterfall  

Located on the south coast of Iceland, Seljalandsfoss has a 200-foot drop over a cavernous cliff. And while Iceland has many waterfalls to visit, the beauty of this one is that you can walk (almost) a full circle around its thunderous base.

Take a hike along Reykjadalur  

This moderate hike in the Reykjadalur Valley, meaning "hot river", is perfect if you want to stay active without breaking into a serious sweat. The moderate trail will take you across beautiful hot springs and through plains with great views of the surrounding mountains. 

What's the best time of year to experience Iceland's nature? 

To experience all the best things Iceland has to offer, plan your nature tour for between September and October. These months offer the best access to the country’s natural landmarks, and it’s likely you’ll also get to see the northern lights.
