Iceland is quite unlike anywhere else. Isolated in the far North Atlantic, the country feels incredibly remote, yet is barely three hours flying time from London.

Reykjavik is the world's most northerly capital, and a vibrant, cosmopolitan city despite its small size. With boutique hotels, excellent restaurants and notoriously good (all) nightlife, it's a fantastic city break in its own right.

The real selling point of Iceland, however, is the desolate beauty of its wild landscapes. The forces of nature that have defined this young island are still very active - volcanoes, geysers, hot springs, mighty rivers and waterfalls continue to shape the landscape. Pristine landscapes of fjord, mountain, glacier, and moss-covered lava fields still dominate most of the island.

Snaefellsnes is one such area - a starkly beautiful peninsula jutting into the North Atlantic on Iceland's western coast. We love the Hotel Budir here; ideal for a windswept romantic retreat, and for adventure activities and whale-watching too.

Iceland offers a huge range of outdoor activities from fishing for sea trout or river salmon, horse riding, sea kayaking, whale-watching, hiking or snowmobiling on the glacier-topped volcano that dominates the tip of the peninsula. Iceland is the perfect destination for an adventure holiday.
