    Pocket Guide: Iceland

    Iceland is a country that turns the world on its head. Frozen landscapes battle fiery volcanoes, the sun rises at midnight and an ancient Viking heritage splices with contemporary Nordic design to create a destination like no other. Head to the capital Reykjavik and soak up Iceland’s vibrant nightlife and music scene, or just explore the country’s array of contemporary museums, bars and cafes. The more adventurous might want to discover the breathtaking trails and glacial mountains of Vatnajokull National Park. Whatever you do, you’ll find something to take your breath away when you book a hotel on this unique, secluded island.

    Areas & Neighbourhoods: Where to Stay in Iceland

    Reykjavik — Backed by snow-capped mountains, book a hotel in the picturesque harbour city of Reykjavik: Iceland’s capital. Discover numerous world-class art galleries and museums, such as the National Museum of Iceland. The city is also renowned for its nightlife, and many of its daytime cafes step up a gear or two to transform into buzzing bars in the evening.

    Vatnajokull National Park — Vatnajokull National Park offers over 8,500 square miles of breathtaking mountain peaks, uninterrupted forests, glaciers, freshwater lakes, hiking trails and ice caves. Just be sure to plan your visit in advance, as the weather can be unpredictable, particularly in the highland areas and during winter months.

    Akureyri — The so-called ‘northern capital’ of Iceland, Akureyri may be small but it certainly packs a punch. Host to over three dozen annual events and festivals, covering everything from snowboarding to medieval crafts, book a hotel in this traditional fishing port that is also famous for its fabulous seafood restaurants.

    Blue Lagoon — Situated 30 miles south of Reykjavík, the Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland’s most iconic and famous sites. Geothermal vents heat the water here to delicious temperatures, and minerals from deep inside the Earth colour it a striking electric blue. Take a dip in the steaming lagoon and you’ll come away feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

    Things to See with a Hotel in Iceland

    It is the natural majesty of this sub-Arctic nation which really has people coming in their droves. From the contrasting sapphire waters and lush green forests of the Blue Lagoon, to whale watching tours from the northern town of Husavik, this is not the time to forget your camera! The tour de force is undoubtedly the Aurora Borealis. Best seen in the winter, Iceland is one of the most accessible destinations to witness the sun’s cosmic rays colliding with Earth’s magnetic field to create this heart stopping display of atmospheric light.

    Things to Do with an Iceland Hotel

    Beyond the natural wonders of this unique nation, Iceland’s many small towns offer a unique taste of local life. That said, due to its accessibility and size, the capital Reykjavik perhaps draws the most visitors. See it at a leisurely pace with a City Sightseeing hop-on, hop-off bus tour, pausing to see the sights or to check out the futuristic window displays in the shops. If you’re a TV buff, why not book a tour of the Game of Thrones filming locations? Taking you beyond the city limits, you will find these tremendous landscapes even more impressive in real life.

    "great stay!"
    Absolutely perfect location. Walking distance to everything in Reykjavik! Just around the corner from the streets with all restaurants and shops. But around the corner meaning you don't get the noise from all the bars all night long. Our room was on the top floor though so that made it extra quiet. The deluxe room was a great size and the hotel amenities were great.

    Wonderful experience. Andrea at the front desk was beyond helpful, giving us tips on sightseeing, helping make dinner reservations and responding immediately to any needs we had. Everyone at the hotel was so pleasant, our room was clean and modern and you could not beat the location.

    "Hotel was undergoing renovation while we stayed."
    We visited for a week and chose this hotel. Very nice, I would stay there again - even though they were undergoing renovation, it was a nice place to stay - breakfast buffet was very good - plenty of variety and I recommend getting it with your hotel package - it saves one meal a day that you won't have to eat out, which is not cheap in Reykjavik.

    "Nice hotel, but a bit noisy on first floor"
    We had a good experience. The room is big and very comfortable, it is in a good central location and the breakfast is the standard in Iceland. The only little problem was with the noise coming from the bar by the lobby of the hotel, which disturbed us a little (if you want a more silent room, do not stay on first floor).

    "Beautiful Location, Comfy Hotel"
    Very pleased with the comfortable room. I arrived late after a long drive and it was a relief to have a warm shower and bed. The hotel was fairly quiet until people started moving around in the morning. The setting was lovely, with a small farm surrounding the place, a view of the water, and mountains rising beyond - I took my cup of coffee outside with me in the morning to admire it all. The staff was very helpful and arranged a whale-watching tour at the last-minute for me (which was a fantastic experience and I was lucky enough to see eleven humpbacks!). Only a short drive to charming Akureyri.

    "Nice apartment in a convenient location"
    This is our second stay at Golden Circle Apartments, and loved it again! The location could not be better, within walking distance to Fontana spa and Linden restaurant (pricey, but highly recommend!). Also, very close to all the major sites withing the Golden Circle. We arrived to Iceland at 4am (two families of 4 each with young kids) and wanted to have an option to check in early. The staff was more than accommodating - they offered two apartments for us in the same building and let us check in early. The apartment was bright, spacious, and clean. It's not luxurious, but everything we needed was included. The kitchen was well-stocked, so we were able to have breakfast at home. Our apartment was on a second floor (no elevator) - this was not an issue for us, but might be for some. If that could be the case, ask for an apartment on the ground floor. Overall a great experience and would definitely stay there again.
