For an escape with real Icelandic authenticity, an immersive stay in a traditional farmhouse is hard to beat. The trend of farm stays has really taken off over the past few years, and the island is peppered with cosy homestays that bring creature comforts together with the raw of the outdoors. Icelandic farm holidays are of course famed for their idyllic locations, nestled between thundering falls and grumbling glaciers, or steaming volcanoes and black sand beaches. Some have natural hot pools which guests can huddle in by twilight; others open to killer views of raging waters and hulking mountains.
But all run a bunch of tours that bring Iceland’s wonderful geological oddities to the fore, from glacier hikes and geyser spotting to volcanic hikes and even horse riding. All this, plus breakfasts of just-baked breads and jams (as well as Iceland’s famous Skyr – a sour yoghurt enjoyed with berries), and daily menus of superb home-cooked food, make Icelandic farm holidays a truly treaty getaway.
