Iceland, a land of captivating beauty and boundless wonder, has been making headlines, topping bucket lists, and enchanting nature lovers from around the globe. It’s a destination where the talents of nature seem endless, a place where dreams of witnessing the Northern Lights come true.
For those who have yearned to behold the ethereal Northern Lights from a young age, an Iceland vacation was likely a lifelong aspiration. The image of the aurora borealis holds a universal allure, reminding us of the awe-inspiring mystery of life on Earth and the almost magical way everything fell into place for us to inhabit this wondrous world.
We invite you to explore this enigmatic country within the embrace of a safe and intimately guided travel experience. Journey to Vatnajökull National Park and witness the ongoing battle between the frozen ice cap and the simmering volcanic activity below. Explore the Diamond Circle, home to the famous Lake Myvatn, shaped by explosive eruptions, and experience the stark contrast of Dettifoss, a thunderous white waterfall.
From delving into Viking legends and bathing in steamy springs to cruising past icebergs and exploring charming farm towns, Iceland offers island life like no other. With colossal glaciers, a volcanic landscape, and the mesmerizing Northern Lights, Iceland is a realm of unparalleled and otherworldly beauty.
Our most sought-after trip, “Fire and Ice,” will have you soaking in the soothing waters of the Blue Lagoon, savoring local cuisine, and encountering pony-sized horses in Skaftafell. It’s time to check this breathtaking destination off your bucket list with Inescape Travel.
For fans of Game of Thrones, Iceland offers a chance to “spot the filming location” from the arrowhead-shaped Kirkjufell peak to the bubbling geothermal vents at Hverir and the Svínafellsjökull glacier tongue. These are the landscapes that have been immortalized on the screen.
We believe that no trip is complete without delving into the culture, cuisine, and stories of the people. Iceland’s sparse population is clustered around Reykjavik, a warm huddle in a solitary world. It’s a living reminder of a time of daring migrations. Explore the vibrant local drinking culture, savor the tender Icelandic langoustine, and visit quaint villages where horseback rides and Viking fantasies come to life.
Iceland, a land powered by clean energy, showcases the potential of sustainable living. Slip into a geothermal pool and feel the warmth; here, luxury is not a man-made construct but a gift from nature.
Greenland may be icy, but Iceland is a land of lush greenery. And remember, part of it is named the Golden Circle for good reason.
Calling all nature enthusiasts, adventure seekers, and fearless travelers. Iceland may be cold, but that’s precisely the point. Here, you’ll witness glaciers, geysers, and geothermal wonders in abundance. Experience a land painted in natural colors: azure at the Blue Lagoon and icy Jokulsarlon, shades of green on the rolling hills by Skogafoss, and the striking black sand beaches hugging the coast. And, of course, the magical dance of the Northern Lights across the Arctic sky!
This well established tourist route is an excellent way to sample three of Iceland’s most essential sights in one easy day trip from Reykjavik. You’ll see Strokkur, the famous Icelandic geyser that erupts every 10-15 minutes, as well as Thingvellir National Park, a rift valley famed as the location of the first Icelandic parliament and for its clear views of the continental divide. But perhaps the most awe-inspiring of the three is Gullfoss, an awe inspiring 32m two-stage waterfall guaranteed to take your breath away.
It’s hard to imagine a more spectacular place to kick back than Iceland’s most famous geothermal spa. Located a short distance from Keflavík airport, the Blue Lagoon is so called for the distinctive milky blue colour of its waters, which are said to have rejuvenating powers. Add to this the balmy temperatures and – of course! – a waterside bar, and you start to see why it ranks amongst the top attractions in Iceland.
A short way from the village of Vík on Iceland’s south coast you’ll find Reynisfjara beach, better known to the English-speaking world as Black Sand Beach. Famed for its striking black sands and its hexagonal basalt formations, this is a truly spellbinding sight and a true Iceland travel essential. Legend has it that distinctive rocky towers offshore are said to be the remnants of trolls, turned to stone by the break of dawn.
When it comes to whale watching, Iceland is one of the best and most reliable destinations in Europe. Its waters are home to 23 different species of whale and dolphin, including orca, minke and the magnificent humpback. A variety of operators based mainly in Reykjavik and Húsavík offer tours year round, though if you really want to sight a whale then come in summer, when the success rate is over 90%!
Full of friendly inhabitants, a fabulous café scene and top class nightlife, Iceland’s capital is an essential stop on any good Iceland travel itinerary. Stroll its picturesque waterfront, take your pick from its scores of excellent restaurants and mingle with the locals in the Reykjavik pubs. Don’t miss the chance to visit the iconic Hallgrimskirkja church, a city landmark with a tower offering the city’s best views.
