With the independence provided with this lcelandair holiday package, the how, when and where of exploring Iceland is completely up to you, behind the wheel, with unlimited mileage.

The rumours you’ve heard are true – there is a LOT to do in Iceland, and much of it is outside the beloved capital city of Reykjavik. There’s no better way to explore at your own pace than with a car rental. So where are you headed first?

Why not start a bit differently and first make your way to East Iceland? The region’s newly-discovered attraction is Stuðlagil, a canyon of basalt columns and gorgeous surrounding scenery accessible during the summer months, and not even known to locals previously, but since has left quite an impression on Icelanders and tourists alike. Also check out the Vök baths in Egillstaðir, a collection of serene geothermal floating pools on the gorgeous Lake Urriðavatn.

Journey north to North Iceland where outdoor activities and adventure abound from ice climbing to ice fishing, and river rafting to skiing. Be sure to visit Lake Myvatn National Park, and of course treat yourself to a nice dinner in Iceland’s “Capital of the North,” the town of Akureyri.

The Westfjords are an absolutely gorgeous must see, especially in the summertime when travel is more accessible. Looking for sea monsters during a whale watching tour in the fjords? Those may be harder to find than Iceland’s legendary elves, but tales of sea monsters have played a colourful role in Icelandic folk culture for centuries, and today these elusive creatures have been given a worthy home at the Icelandic Sea Monster Museum, located in the village of Bildudalur on the shores of Arnarfjörður fjord. Spend some time in the region’s cultural and population center of Ísafjörður. If skiing is your thing, the month of April brings the annual Fossavatn Ski Marathon, a festival of cross-country skiing that’s suitable for the whole family.
