Hei­d­mörk Na­ture Re­serve

“Sit­u­ated on the south­east out­skirts of Reyk­javík city is Hei­d­mörk – a won­der­ful recre­ational area with many trails lead­ing through a vast ex­panse of bushy veg­e­ta­tion and lava for­ma­tions. Some of the park’s most notable fea­tures are the Raud­hólar or ‘Red Hills’ – the rem­nants of a clus­ter of pseu­docraters in El­l­i­daárhraun lava field. Hei­d­mörk is a favourite with the lo­cals, es­pe­cially for sports en­thu­si­asts, those with chil­dren and cou­ples look­ing for a ro­man­tic re­treat!” - Visit Reyk­javík

South­ern Ice­land Glaciers

“Dis­cover the scenery of South Ice­land on this full-day tour from Reyk­javík. Jour­ney past lava fields, ice­bergs and glacier lakes as you ex­plore the Sól­heima­jökull and Mýrdal­sjökull glaciers. Keep your cam­era poised as you ad­mire the black sand beaches and dra­matic rock for­ma­tions of Vik, as well as the mighty Sko­gafoss and Sel­ja­lands­foss wa­ter­falls.”

Golden Cir­cle

“If you can’t spend a full week driv­ing Ice­land’s Ring Road (which cir­cles the coun­try), rent­ing a car and driv­ing the smaller Golden Cir­cle route on your own is a per­fect op­tion. Driv­ing the Golden Cir­cle is a pop­u­lar day trip for vis­i­tors to Ice­land. The 300km route cov­ers many beau­ti­ful land­marks in a short pe­riod of time.”

North­ern Lights

“The north­ern lights are one of the big­gest draws to vis­it­ing Ice­land, how­ever they are also one of the most elu­sive and un­pre­dictable at­trac­tions this coun­try has. Al­though it would be great to eas­ily pin­point a how to see them, there are a lot of vari­ables to con­sider for see­ing them: sea­son, weather, length of stay, lo­ca­tion and luck. Of course, there are lots of fan­tas­tic things to do in Ice­land and it’s al­ways best to think of see­ing the north­ern lights as an added bonus.”
