Reykjavik

Reykjavik, Europe’s most northerly capital, is a cool, compact city, where just about everything you need can be found in one place: Laugavegur street in the heart of the colourful 101 District. Discover concept stores selling chunky Icelandic knitwear, craft beer bars and hotdog stands, and outdoor attire retailers where you can get kitted out in style.

Set against a mountainous backdrop, bordered by wild seas and surrounded by mile upon mile of open, beautiful landscape, this is one bewitching city. Tours from here are in abundance, from exploring the Golden Circle's magnetising scenery to bathing in the waters of the misty Blue Lagoon, and even whale watching off the coast.

West Iceland


Reykholt in West Iceland combines fire and ice, with its unique situation between a glacier - Langjökull, Iceland's second largest, and explorable by Jeep, snowmobile or hiking - and a lava field. It's a superb place to view the Northern Lights without light pollution, as on average, they make an appearance three times a week.

The area is home to a plethora of natural wonders, with the ancient Snorralaug geothermal pool right on your doorstep and Europe's most powerful hot spring, Deildartunguhver, only six and a half kilometres from the hotel. The distinctive Hraunfossar & Barnafoss waterfalls are only a 15-minute drive away and the jaw-dropping Icelandic sagas of Borgarfjordur are 43 kilometres away.

South Iceland


Just a 25-minute drive from your South Iceland base of Fosshotel Hekla, you'll find Hella, a small town set on the shores of Ytri-Rangá river. From here, you could explore on horseback or take an off-road tour to get to know the stunning surrounds: the Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls are particularly dramatic sights, Dyrholaey peninsula is a rugged hotspot offering incredible sea views, and the village of Vik enchants with its black-sand beach and surreal mountainous backdrop.

Skaftafell National Park and the breathtaking Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon are classic bucket-list attractions spilling with splendour.

Good to know

The Northern Lights are usually visible from September until the end of April. Please be aware that they are a naturally occurring phenomenon, so whilst we hope you'll get to see them, we can't guarantee they'll oblige.

Please note that should the hotels listed here be unavailable, you will stay in another of similar standard.
