Holidays in Iceland
The Autumn of 2011 and the early months of 2012 are being hailed as the best time for the last 50 years to see the Northen Lights - now we have not always placed a great deal of faith in the weather forecasters but, if they are right, this means that it is an ideal time to visit Rekkjavik and enjoy the many wonders of an Icelandci holiday.
Background on Iceland
Iceland offers a variety of natural wonders - glaciers, geysirs, thermal pools and of course at certain times of year the spectacle of the Northern Lights. There is a multitude of activities on offer - from horse riding to diving, whale watching to bird watching, 4x4 adventures, national parks to hike in and of course swimming.
The Blue Lagoon is a must for anyone visiting Iceland and is conveniently located near to the airport making it an easy trip to do on your last day - you can relax in the warm waters enjoying the last moments of your holiday before heading back.
Reykjavik itself has many superb restaurants where you can taste some of the local specialities, excusive shops and boutiques and a good choice of hotels. The nightlife is reputed to be one of the best in Europe.
