Icelandic tourism has exploded in recent years, and for good reason. The volcanoes, glaciers and hot springs are just some of the ethereal experiences Iceland has to offer. They have been voted friendliest country to visit, which, as you probably know, makes a huge difference in a trip to a new place. In addition to seeing the magnificent landscape, this trip takes you on a tour of Reykjavik — Iceland’s largest city. You will then spend 10 days travelling around the island, ending back in Reykjavik with memories that can’t be had in any other country. Can’t make the last-minute deal? We’ve got four other options for visiting Iceland that you can take any time of year.
