If you like the sound of jaw-dropping natural wonders and a thriving cultural scene, then you’ll love Iceland.

Known as the “Land of Fire and Ice”, this compact Nordic nation is home to towering volcanoes, dazzling glacier lagoons, and expansive lava fields. Along with steaming geysers and bubbling mud pools, you’ll also find a number of hot springs at just the right temperature for bathing.

Iceland’s vast land and seascapes are also home to a variety of wildlife. You could go looking for whales on a boat trip, see seals basking on the shore, or enjoy watching puffins on the sea cliffs.

It’s not all about the spectacular scenery and opportunities for wildlife watching though. In fact, even without the captivating natural landscapes surrounding it, the capital makes for a memorable city break.

Visit Reykjavík and you’ll encounter quirky museums and a mouth-watering foodie scene. There are even more cultural experiences waiting for you in the charming towns and villages dotted throughout Iceland’s countryside.

The main route around Iceland, known as the “Ring Road”, is 1,332 kilometres (828 miles) long. And while it’s possible to drive it in as little as 24 hours, this is definitely not recommended.

Instead, it’s best to give yourself at least 1 week in Iceland to make the round trip. Although, 10 days is even better as you’ll have plenty of time for sightseeing along the way.

Or you could spend 2-3 weeks in Iceland. This will let you enjoy an even more leisurely pace, with lots of time for detouring off the Ring Road to uncover hidden gems.

Find out how long it takes to drive around Iceland on our experts’ blog.

Iceland’s relatively small size means you can travel around the entire country in just a few days if you choose. But if you really want to get to know the country, we recommend allowing time to tour its distinct regions at a leisurely pace.

Indeed, this breathtaking island nation is packed with top spots and off-the-beaten-path treasures. So if you don’t have time to explore them all you can always come back on a return trip.

These are Iceland’s regions:

Here are a few of the best places to go in Iceland:

  • • Reykjavík – The country’s capital city and exciting cultural hub
  • Blue Lagoon – Iceland’s most iconic geothermal pool
  • • Golden Circle – A sightseeing route that combines 3 top attractions in South Iceland
  • • Diamond Circle – Similar to the Golden Circle, but this route is quieter and located in the north
  • • Snæfellsnes peninsula – Home to Kirkjufell, one of Iceland’s most iconic mountains
  • • Diamond Beach – A ribbon of black volcanic sand scattered with glittering chunks of ice

When you visit Iceland with Nordic Visitor, you can choose from a range of expert-curated 3 to 21-day itineraries. So there’s something to suit most timeframes, but with so much to see and do you’ll want to spend as long as you can here.

Anything from 1 to 3 weeks tends to be a good length of time for a trip to Iceland. This is because the longer you have, the deeper you’ll be able to delve into the sights and sounds of this incredible country.

With 7 days in Iceland, you’ll be able to take in a lot on an express Ring Road itinerary. Or instead, take things at a more relaxed pace and choose to explore a couple of regions in more depth.

For instance, you could tour the attractions along the Golden Circle driving route from Reykjavík, before uncovering the natural wonders of Iceland’s south coast. You could also head west to explore the Snæfellsnes peninsula, home to Iceland’s oldest national park. Or visit the wildlife haven of the Westfjords, home to puffins and Arctic foxes.

If you have time for a 2-week or 3-week break in Iceland, you’ll be able to enjoy a leisurely trip with plenty of time to stop in each place along the way. This makes 2 to 3 weeks perfect if you’re seeking off-the-beaten-path experiences in Iceland.

That said, if you don’t have weeks to spare, you’ll still have a memorable getaway with as few as 3 or 4 days in Iceland. This length of visit is ideal if you’re arriving on an Iceland stopover, or if you'd prefer a short break. You can tour Reykjavík’s attractions, bathe in the Blue Lagoon, or even chase the northern lights in winter.

You’ll find recommended itineraries and advice for how many days you need to spend in Iceland in this blog. But if you’re not sure what trip duration is best, you can get in touch with us.

Deciding when to visit Iceland depends on when you can travel, and the things you’d like to experience on your trip. Thankfully, Iceland is a great year-round destination, so you’re guaranteed to make lifelong memories no matter when you visit.

To take advantage of the year’s best weather, travel between April and September on a summer tour of Iceland.

The days are at their longest at the height of summer – June, July and August – when you’ll encounter a phenomenon known as the “midnight sun”. So come during these months if you want to maximise the time you spend outdoors, soaking up the scenery.

It’s also good to know that you can experience Nordic Visitor summer itineraries during the “shoulder season”. This includes April, May and September.

Choose to visit at this time and you’ll still benefit from mild weather and plenty of daylight hours. Plus, there’s the added bonus of being able to enjoy popular attractions when there are fewer visitors around.

These are some of the top things you can do in Iceland during summer:

  • • Hiking in beautiful scenery
  • • Exploring the highlands
  • • Enjoying off-the-beaten-path adventures
  • • Going to art and music festivals
  • • Wildlife watching

On the other hand, you can relish a different kind of adventure on an Iceland winter tour, from October to March. Imagine marvelling at waterfalls encased in ice, or trying activities like snowmobiling by day. Then, come evening, chasing the aurora under winter’s dark skies.

An added bonus of travelling at this time of year is that you can join the locals in their joyous Christmas and New Year festivities. Plus, in December, January and February, you’re more likely to be treated to the mesmerising sight of Iceland’s volcanic landscapes dusted in snow.

Here are some recommended winter activities in Iceland:

  • • Hunting for the northern lights
  • • Celebrating Christmas or New Year
  • • Ice caving in a glacier
  • • Snowmobiling
     

For more in-depth information about the best time to visit Iceland, make sure to read this guide and check out when to travel.

The best time for a northern lights tour in Iceland is in winter, from October to April.

At this time of year, the skies are at their darkest so you’ll see the flickering lights of the aurora more clearly. What’s more, winter’s longer nights will give you a higher chance of spotting the northern lights.

Check out these handy guides to find out more about the aurora borealis:

If you’re a citizen of the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand or the Schengen Area, you don’t need to apply for a visa to visit Iceland. But to enter the country, you must have a passport that’s valid for at least another 3 months from your date of travel.

If you’re arriving in Iceland from another country, you may need a Schengen visa. This type of visa allows you to visit and stay in the Schengen Area member countries for up to 90 days.

You can find out more about visa requirements and getting to Iceland in our travel guide.
