Imagine passing by bubbling hot springs blanketed by a blue mist, waterfalls hitting black sand surrounded by rugged fjords and driving for miles amid lava formations with not a soul in sight. This could be an image of life on the Moon or some other planet yet to be discovered, but this fascinating place does exist on Earth – it’s called Iceland. Many travellers who come off a flight to Iceland are so enchanted by the place that they would rather keep it a secret than spread the word and have other tourists discover this serene and sparsely populated land.

Iceland’s population amounts to just under 300,000, most of which is concentrated either in or around the capital, Reykjavik.This buzzing city is quickly becoming a popular destinations and surprisingly boasts some of the best nightlife in the region.

Iceland climate

As its name suggests, Iceland is cold, but not as cold as might be expected because the climate is regulated by the passing warm waters of the Gulf Stream. The summer temperature in Reykjavik ranges from five degrees Celsius at night to as high as 25 degrees during the day. The average January temperature is -0.5 degrees. The south is the wettest part of the country, but snow is rare. Coastal areas tend to experience winter gales and are generally windy.

Getting around Iceland

Domestic Iceland flights are available from Reykjavik to various destinations from Air Iceland and Eagle Air. Flying – especially in the winter – is the easiest, quickest and often the cheapest way to get around.

Iceland Air also connects with bus services, to provide travel to destinations not served by flights.

Other than flying, the only reliable way of getting around is by bus. There is no train service in the country and, though car hire is available, this is not a recommended means of transport, due to ice and poor roads. The bus network is extensive. Advance purchases are not necessary and tickets can be bought from the driver.
