‘Iceland’ is pretty hot right now. (And we don’t just mean its natural springs). Sick of cloudy days and dismal evenings? How about some late summer days with 20hrs of straight daylight and a non-stop party atmosphere to go with it? Yep, this is a city break with a big difference. Not many capital cities just a stones throw away can boast bubbling thermal pools and dramatic frozen glaciers, and this is just the tip of the iceberg…
Quad bike across the rugged landscape, scuba dive between tectonic plates, or head into the wild on a snowmobile (ok maybe wait for the snow to return first). And if that isn’t your thing how about a more laid back weekend break spent immersing yourself in the nightlife, art galleries and designer boutiques of achingly cool Reykjavik?
As night falls, another type of adventure begins – Icelanders are experts in the cutting edge nightlife. Staying in the fashionable Hotel 101 you’ll be very well placed to make the most of this city’s hotspots. And to make sure you track down the best restaurants, bars and clubs get a helping hand from Black Tomato and their local knowledge service.
