Nature in all its bountiful, beautiful glory is just the start of the adventure in Iceland…
Book flights to Reykjavik and touch down in the most sparsely-populated outpost of Europe. It feels like it too: yawning vistas of scrubby farmland, black-as-night ribbons of sand, lakes that stretch for miles, and roads that really do feel like they are going to nowhere. And then you find a rainbow-making waterfall, or a herd of fuzzy, friendly Icelandic horses, or a hot pocket of spring water where even winter melts away. The beauty of Iceland is that every visitor discovers a different destination.

With an explosion in services from the UK, the Icelandic capital has never been easier to fly to…
Low-cost flights have really opened Iceland up to UK visitors, while the national carrier has also expanded its services in recent years.
Icelandair flies daily from London Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester, and Glasgow. Additional services operate from Birmingham and Aberdeen, with a flight time of about three hours. WOW is another local carrier with flights from Gatwick. Both airlines offer onward connections with stopovers, meaning you could combine a trip to the USA and Canada with your Reykjavik flight.
British Airways has relaunched flights from London and easyJet has multiple weekly services from London’s Gatwick, Stansted and Luton, as well as Manchester, Bristol, Belfast, and Edinburgh.

You’ve found the cheapest flights, so take your travel superhero status up a level and book a brilliant hotel too…
The wilds of Iceland are ravishing, but for a hip urban scene, amazing restaurants and cool nightlife, it has to be Reykjavik. The nation’s capital is a sprawling centre of all things cultural, economic, gastronomic, financial, retail and, well, everything, in Iceland. Reykjavik is probably the only destination on this vast island where you can get around easily without a car. Book a hotel in the compact city centre, using tour companies to see the sights outside Reykjavik, and you can ditch the car keys during your break (handy, when you clock the amount of friendly bars along Austurstraeti - that’s a street in downtown, close to the main streets of Laugavegur and Bankastraeti).
Downtown is the only location worth considering for your stay in Reykjavik. Here, you get bags of Scandinavian style and great views at the luxury end of the market, and good facilities, convenient locations and reasonable prices in the budget hotels.
Book well in advance and compare the best deals on TravelSupermarket to make savings on your stay in the Icelandic capital.
