Holidays to Iceland

ICELANDIC EXPERIENCE: 3 EXCURSIONS YOU CANNOT MISS

Iceland. Ah yes; the land of ice and fire. Situated on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, and despite its chilly name, Iceland is HOT when it comes to a great choice of holiday destination. As a hot spot for volcanic activity, Iceland presents an adventure with a difference. Home to some of Europe's biggest glaciers, active volcanoes, geothermal hot springs, cave explorations, and skiing, a trip to Iceland is not one you will ever forget!

Getting to Iceland

Iceland is continuously increasing in popularity as a tourism destination and with regular direct flights from Dublin to Keflavik Airport it is easier to get to than ever.

Here at Abbey Travel, we offer packages to Iceland with 3 or 4 nights B&B accommodation in 3 or 4 star hotels, as well as return airport transfers and a range of excursions.

The only way to really experience and make the most of your time in Iceland is on one of the many excursions on offer.

Here are three of our favourites…

CITY TOUR OF REYKJAVIK

Did you know that Reykjavik is the world’s most northerly capital city? A truly fascinating city, Reykjavik is rich in landmarks, places of historical significance, magnificent landscapes, and natural wonders…not to mention a colourful culture which is peppered with surprising diversity. With restaurants, museums, galleries, and theatres aplenty, this three-hour city tour does not disappoint. It is the best way to see the entire town, including the old town, the parliament, the Cathedral, the harbour, the National Museum, The Pearl and Hofdi House.

SUPER JEEP SAFARI

If a city tour doesn’t sound exciting enough for you, how about a four-hour Super Jeep Safari? On board a 4x4 Super Truck, the safari brings you through an enchanting volcanic wonderland on the outskirts of Reykjavik. You will be greeted by lava fields (which abound in strange colours and rock formations), hot springs, steep cliffs, as well as the tip of Reykjavik’s Peninsula, where you will see where the Mid Atlantic Ridge rises from the ocean to become part of the land – one of the true wonders of the world.

EVENING NORTHERN LIGHTS AND THE BLUE LAGOON TOUR

In a previous blog post, we have spoken of our love of the Northern Lights. If you decide to take one of our chartered flights to Iceland in April, you will be in with a good chance of seeing the unforgettable Northern Lights. Without a doubt, the swirl and dance of the stars is one of the most wonderful natural phenomenon’s you will ever witness. This trip is followed by a trip to the Blue Lagoon – a man-made oasis in the lava. You will have the opportunity to take a dip in the pleasantly warm mineral-rich (and supposedly, healing) waters.

Other excursions include Golden Circle Tour, The Friendly Icelandic Horse Riding Tour and the South Coast Tour…which our team can tell you all about! They are also GREAT!

* Please note the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and sightings are subject to the correct atmospheric conditions and cannot be guaranteed.
