Holiday lettings in Iceland - discover the magic of this Nordic wonder
Situated in the North Atlantic Ocean, the mysterious nation of Iceland is a wondrous destination full of opportunity for natural exploration as well as a vibrant cultural scene. Here you can find anything from cosy city apartments to wooden cottages by the sea. Swim in geothermal lagoons and witness the Northern Lights in this stunning Nordic nation.
The climate and weather in Iceland
Unlike most of Europe, Iceland only has two distinct seasons - summer and winter. Summers bring mild weather with temperatures reaching a high of around 15 degrees. Winters are cold with frequent snowfall. Daytime temperatures rarely get above 2-3 degrees - nights are significantly cooler.
One of the primary reasons people visit Iceland is to witness the spectacular Northern Lights - otherwise known as the Aurora Borealis. The best time to see the Northern Lights in Iceland is between the months of September and March. Though the months of November, January and February are the darkest, these are also the months with the most snow which can prohibit visibility.
Arts and culture in Reykjavik
Reykjavik is a wonderful locality to base yourself and rent a holiday house when you visit Iceland. Not only are many great natural spots locates nearby, but it is also a worthy destination in its own right. Hallgrímskirkja Cathedral is like no other you'll see. The triangular shaped church is the biggest in Iceland and the 6th tallest structure in the country.
Other notable attractions in the city include the National Museum of Iceland, Reykjavik 871 (a collection of old Viking buildings) and the National Art Gallery, home to works of art from some world-renowned names. The Living Art Museum is a great choice for those looking for something a little more experimental.
What to see and do in Iceland
While there is a great deal of metropolitan culture to appreciate, primarily in the nation's capital Reykjavik, the main draws for most visitors are the stunning landscape and the outdoor opportunities. No visit to Iceland would be complete without some rejuvenation in a geothermal spa - volcanically heated pools of natural salt water. The most frequented, and for good reason, is the Blue Lagoon - its proximity to the capital makes for the perfect half day trip. For those feeling adventurous, hiking is a very popular activity, though routes can be challenging and it is advised to prepare well.
The Gullfoss waterfall is one of the country's natural highlights. This double 32m high waterfall is located in the south of the island, just over an hour's drive from the capital. Heading further east, you'll discover Europe's largest glacier, Vatnajökull. Not only that, you'll also get to witness Europe's most powerful waterfall and the highest mountain in the country.
