Great last minute deals to Iceland to grab
A country of dramatic contrasts
Thinking of a last minute holiday? Then think of Iceland. Think of Iceland and you must think of the elements. Contrary to its cold name, Iceland is also a place of heat thanks to its extensive volcanic activity. With so many last minute holidays in Iceland available, now is the right time to visit this magical and mysterious landscape distinguished by such varied natural phenomena. Iceland is a place of natural contrasts, as well as a hive of great cultural activity and history.
A capital place to begin
Perhaps the best place to start your last minute holiday in Iceland is the country’s capital, Reykjavik. While the city is not vast and has only 120,000 residents, it is a place with a big heart and attitude. Famed for its night life - particularly at weekends when locals go out very late - museums and architecture, it is a must-see location. Sights high on your itinerary should be the CIA.IS, Center for Icelandic Art, which has general information on Icelandic visual art, and a visit to the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa near the city.
Once you’ve enjoyed the culture of the capital city on your last minute deal in Iceland, there is still so much of interest in the rest of the country for the serious culture vulture. You will be drawn to the various festivals held in the east of Iceland celebrating music and creative arts. For the country's famous and influential sagas, head to West Iceland. Sagas are the ancient legends that were handed down through the generations.
A landscape where fire and ice battle it out
Suitably satisfied by city and cultural life, you must explore the rest of Iceland. The country is divided up into various regions, each with its own particular qualities. The coastline of East Iceland is a must-see, and it is here that the largest forest of Iceland is found. West Iceland, meanwhile, is where you will discover amazing waterfalls and grumbling volcanoes. In Iceland's north west you will find the Westfjords, a veritable wilderness and the perfect retreat for quiet. If it's top class seafood you desire, then you should head south to the eateries of the seaside resorts. Geothermals are perhaps one of Iceland's most famous assets and the Reykjanes peninsula is home to them, as well as volcano craters and hot springs.
