Looking for a fantastic adventure getaway? Why not try Iceland? Why Iceland, you may ask? Well, why not? There are piles and piles of surprise after surprise to this beautiful and mystical country than you can imagine.
And especially if you’re fond of those adventure tours, Iceland is truly for you. If you want to ask how to get there, simple: the major gateway in Iceland is the (KEF) Keflavik International Airport—that is only roughly 50 minutes from the capital city of Reykjavik. The flight times are only about 5 hours from New York and only 3 hours if you’re from London. Icelandair Airline has direct flights from numerous North American as well as European cities, plus, the Wow Air (budget carrier) also operates several routes in Europe, most especially during the summer months.
How to get around Iceland
The “Ring Road” or Route 1 is considered as the central highway which encircles the island and joins most of the communities there. Be reminded that there are no trains in Iceland, so most tourists opt for exploring the countryside either by bus, on a private tour or via rental car as part of the guided tours they choose. Eagle Air as well as Air Iceland provide the domestic flights right from Reykjavik Airport to the several locations surrounding the country.
Just in the capital city of Reykjavik alone, you could already do your very own sightseeing trip by foot. Take note that Reykjavik is also the beginning point of most well-anticipated adventure tours in Iceland that surrounds the whole countryside, and these involve horse riding trips, amazing whale watching tours, 4x4 jeep safaris, and enjoyable and entertaining private tours around the country.
As English is spoken everywhere in the country, no worries for visitors getting around and exploring Iceland.
There are high seasons, shoulder seasons and low seasons to visit Iceland.
The high seasons are the busiest months in the country—from June-August. The shoulder seasons are in May and September if you wish to save money and avoid the crowd. Then the low seasons are those from the middle of February up to early April as the best time to visit when the daylight begins to increase, plus the climate is really stable.
