Island

Iceland, from geysers and volcanos to delicious sea food

The world has  a strong connection to Iceland from the Icelandic sagas to today.
It is, as a travel destination, incredibly exciting, varied and magnificent. We typically associate the country with geysers, hot springs, beautiful waterfalls and, yes, generally magnificent scenery, but the country is also exciting culture and great experiences.

Iceland is halfways between Europe and the US.

Your flight will take you to a really different place. As the island lies just between Europe and North America and is roughly nothing more than a few volcanic rocks with glaciers on top, volcanoes and black rock deserts, Iceland’s culture has been influenced by both America and Europe.

Although travel to Iceland is most popular during the summer months, the other seasons are also becoming increasingly popular. Come to Iceland in the winter and experience something truly magical.

Island, fra geysere til 4 hjuls adventures og lækker mad

Island har vi et stærkt bånd til fra de islandske sagaer og frem til idag.
Det er som rejseland utroligt spændende, varieret og storslået. Vi forbinder typisk landet med gejsere, varme kilder, smukke vandfald og ja generelt storslået natur, men landet er også spændende kultur og store oplevelser.
Din flyverejse vil føre dig til et virkelig anderledes sted. Da øen ligger lige mellem Europa og Nordamerika og grovt sagt ikke er meget mere end et par vulkanske klipper med gletchere på toppen, vulkaner og sorte stenørkener, er Islands kultur blevet påvirket af både Amerika og Europa.

Selvom rejser til Island er mest populære i sommermånederne, bliver de andre sæsoner i stigende grad også populære. Kom til Island om vinteren, og oplev noget virkelig magisk.

Der er en speciel atmosfære over Reykjavik, en blanding af både by og landsby. Selvom det samlede befolkningstal for Reykjavik og omegn kun er godt 180.000 mennesker, tænker islændingene større og er yderst innovative også i fohold til at tage godt mod gæster, udvikling af turisme og tilbud, og det kan ses og opleves.
