Holiday rentals and lettings in Iceland

Iceland, a force of nature

Iceland’s capital city, Reykjavik, is on the coast in the south-west of the island, and while most of the country’s residents make their home here, do make sure to venture out further – much further! Holiday rentals in Iceland are available for you almost everywhere outside of the Vatnajökull National Park, giving you the chance to explore the whole of this extraordinary island. Consider booking your holiday in the villages around the outer edges of the country to experience the true Iceland and to access the many incredible natural phenomena it has to offer.

Traditional Icelandic holiday rentals

Iceland is breathtaking, and it’s also cold, so it’s natural that the holiday lettings are built both with large windows to give the greatest vista of the staggering beauty of the country, and cosy, warm and comfortable interiors. Many Icelandic holiday rentals are made from wood, as this is a common building material in Iceland. Reykjavik features attractive, modern and, of course, warm properties in the centre of this fascinating city. Don’t delay – book today and visit this country of outstanding natural beauty.

The area and getting around

Explore this county of natural beauty

While it’s possible to reach the island of Iceland by water, it’s a 47-hour ferry journey from neighbouring Denmark, and while this is an incredible journey in itself, and arguably one we should all make in our lifetime, it’s not how most visitors arrive! The majority fly to Keflavik Airport just outside Reykjavik, but don’t worry if your final holiday destination is on the other side of the country, as Iceland is well set up for internal flights. What we can promise is that no matter where you choose in Iceland, you’ll see some of the planet’s most spectacular natural features: glaciers, geothermal and volcanos, and if you visit outside of summer –the Northern Lights – don’t forget your camera!

A land of fire and ice

The natural incongruity of fiery volcanoes and the icy glaciers make Iceland unique, and truly extraordinary. Ever wanted to jump into a warm water lake and then get out and roll in snow? Here’s your chance! Hike across ancient volcano flows and marvel at glacial rivers, then visit one of its peculiarly beautiful jet black beaches.

Travellers and activities

Iceland for adventure lovers

Stepping off the beaten track in Iceland must be done with care, and a guide. But the rewards are amazing and the memories you’ll make will last a lifetime. Iceland is an incredible place for hikers of all fitness levels – just ensure your guide knows what you are capable of. For those interested in watery adventures, consider diving or snorkelling in the Silfra rift, where you can swim between two tectonic plates, that of North America and Eurasia – the only place on the planet where this is possible!

Iceland for couples

If romance blossoms in beautiful surroundings, you’re going to be in the perfect location for love in Iceland. Take a tour around Gullfoss where a truly spectacular waterfall, viewable on two levels, sparkles with a colourful rainbow when the sun shines through the spray. Nauthólsvík geothermal beach in Reykjavík has soft, golden sand and a warm lagoon and hot tubs – a relaxing way to spend your day together. Finish your day with a delightful Icelandic meal then when the night falls, and from late August to mid-April, watch the Northern Lights dance across the sky!

Most of Iceland’s population live in its capital city, Reykjavik, and the city runs almost entirely on eco-friendly geothermal power!

Top 5 travel tips in Iceland

1. A beach of diamonds?

Iceland’s famous ‘diamond beach’, known locally as Breiðamerkursandur, is a jet-black beach scattered with glittering pieces of ice as big as rocks, washed up from the passing icebergs. Visit this stunning beach for an unforgettable experience!

2. Experience the iceberg lagoon of Fjallsárlón

Take a guided boat trip across Fjallsárlón lagoon and come up close and personal with icebergs as they drift around the lake. With the Öræfajökull glacier, Iceland’s tallest volcano, soaring above the lake this is an incredible example of Iceland’s ‘Fire and Ice’.

3. See the stunning Seljalandsfoss waterfall

Seljalandsfoss is a 60 metre high crashing waterfall with a spectacular aura when the sun shines. Visitors can reach a cave behind the waterfall for amazing views of the crashing waters.

4. Watch as The Great Geysir erupts

The Great Geysir is the first ever known to have been recorded in print and it gives its name to all the other geyser’s in the world. Although it sometimes falls silent, when active its spectacular eruptions of boiling hot water can reach as high as 170 metres!

5. Unwind in the Myvatn Nature Baths

Drawing on the natural magic of Iceland’s geothermally heated waters, Myvatn offers visitors the opportunity to swim and relax in the natural mineral spa.
