Holiday homes in Iceland

Holiday homes in Rejkjavik's vibrant centre

Iceland's range of holiday apartments is as varied as the island's scenic wealth. Especially in the capital Reykjavik there are many spacious apartments and holiday flats from which you can explore the city. The numerous accommodations near the port of Reykjavik offer a particularly beautiful view of the offshore islands and the rough North Atlantic. These are predominantly typical country houses in the classical style, which rarely accommodate more than 3-4 parties.

Peace and relaxation on the coast

Those who are looking for a holiday flat or a holiday home on the volcano island, but do not necessarily want to live in the capital, will also find it in the cities along the west and north-west coast. A holiday home just a few kilometres from the coast in the interior of the country promises peace and relaxation. There are spacious farmhouses which house private apartments and serve as a starting point for discovering the breathtaking nature.

Traditional houses deep in the heartland

On the other hand, you will experience complete seclusion deep inland in places such as Hunavatnshreppur or Eyjafjardarsveit, where the often traditional wooden houses are in the immediate vicinity of crystal-clear lakes or nestle against rugged mountains. However, if you want to enjoy nature in a holiday home surrounded by mountains, lakes and glaciers, remember to book an off-road rental car early.

Holiday in Iceland

Travel and locomotion

Arrival by plane or ferry

You can travel to the most remote island in Europe either by ferry or plane. The international airport in Keflavik is only 65 kilometres from the capital Rejkjavik and is regularly visited from all major European airports. Regular flights from Germany depart from Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Münster, Dresden, Nuremberg, Cologne, Munich, Berlin and Frankfurt. Alternatively, you can take the ferry from Denmark, which leaves Hanstholm in summer and Esbjerg in winter.

By plane or car across the country

On Iceland, flying is like driving a taxi. Longer distances across the island are therefore often covered with smaller machines. There are also several national long-distance bus lines, which also have a round trip ticket in their programme, which is particularly interesting for tourists. However, if you want to be as flexible as possible and explore the island on your own, you will need a rental car. Since many of the pistes on the island, which are off the surrounding ring road, are not paved, you should always rent a four-wheel drive vehicle. Otherwise you may not be able to reach your holiday home in the countryside.

Climatic conditions & regular events

Worth a trip all year round

Despite the proximity of Iceland to the Arctic Circle, the climate on the island is surprisingly mild, which the islanders owe above all to the warming Gulf Stream. From February to April the island attracts with lots of snow, icy waterfalls and mysteriously steaming thermal springs. Between the end of June and the middle of August the island is in high season, especially as the mild summers get by on average with only 10 rainy days. In addition, the mild temperatures of up to 16°C allow the relaxed exploration of the island. In order to get a holiday home in a good location during the season, however, you must book early, because these are quickly fully booked.

Regular events attract visitors

The 17th of June is a must for all Icelanders, because on the national holiday the small people celebrate their independence on the streets and welcome visitors. The midsummer night on 21 June is also a magnet for visitors to the island, especially as the sun does not set on this day. This spectacle is best observed in the north of the island. Other events worth visiting are the Rejkjavik Marathon in August and the International Film Festival in September.

According to official surveys, over 75 percent of people in Iceland believe that there are elves. It's not for nothing that the country has an official ivory commissioner.

Top 5 travel tips

1. Visiting the capital of the elves

The city of Hafnarfjördur lies in the middle of a mystical landscape of lava hills and is home to 26,000 human inhabitants and the largest colony of magical creatures on the island. On Iceland, the town is considered the capital of the elves, and you can follow in their footsteps in Hafnarfjördur thanks to a city map designed by Erla Stefánsdóttir. Another attraction is the traditional Viking festival at the winter and summer solstice.

2. Northern lights in the night sky

The northern lights have had a fascinating effect on people for thousands of years, which anyone who has seen them with their own eyes can confirm. The spectacle of the ghostly rolling green, red and blue lights can be observed from August to April in the skies over the whole of Iceland.

3. Experience Rejkjavik on your own

The capital of the volcanic island is characterized by its typical colorful houses and invites you to discover the history of the city and the myths of the country. In the many small cafés, bistros, boutiques, bars and restaurants both night owls and gourmets get their money's worth. Those who have their holiday flat right in the city centre will of course enjoy a home advantage during the nightly rambles through the bars.

4. The golden waterfall

The Gulfoss waterfall is one of the most impressive waterfalls on the island. It feeds itself from the glacial river Hvitá and plunges into a 2.5 kilometre long and 70 metre deep gorge. Daring adventurers can take a small path close to the thundering water masses and enjoy a breathtaking view over the landscape.

5 Icelandic bathing culture in the Blue Lagoon

Already in the Middle Ages the islanders appreciated their hot springs and took a pleasant bath at the Blaá Lonio, the Blue Lagoon. The deep blue lava lake near the capital Rejkjavik is framed by black sandy beaches and offers a wide range of wellness facilities with steam baths, massages and saunas. The bathing is particularly impressive in winter, when the surrounding landscape is covered with snow.
