A holiday house on Iceland: Vacation in stunning nature
When vacating in a holiday apartment or house on Iceland you are guaranteed stunning nature experiences. Fjords, waterfalls, lakes, rugged coasts, black beaches and bizarre volcanic landscapes characterise the harsh island, Europe’s outpost in the North Atlantic. So take a seat on the terrace of your designer house with its unique view of the lake, warm up in the hot pot of your block house at the foot of the snow-covered mountains or start an expedition to the renowned glacier at the Snaefellsjökull. Outdoor and nature enthusiasts will be thrilled by the locations of the holiday apartments and houses on Iceland.
A bath in the hot pot
Another great characteristic of most holiday apartments and houses on Iceland are the typical hot pots. The Finns have their saunas, the Icelanders their hot pots. Iceland is a volcanic island which simmers strongly subsurface. The hot water which shoots to the surface in the countless geysers is used by many Icelanders for heating their homes and filling up their swimming pools. Subsequently it is common that almost every house has a pool with hot water at the front door – a so called hot pot. This is the right place to be when a heavy storm sweeps over the island or when snow covers the cold lava wasteland. However, the climate on Iceland is not arctic. The summers can be pleasantly warm and the winter temperatures usually range around zero degrees. But anyway no one comes to the island to get a tan. The landscape is ideal for rafting, glacier tours and hiking trips, during summer under the never-ending midnight sun and winter lit by the stunning northern lights. Time now that you book your place in a hot pot, together with a holiday house on Iceland, for example in Hellnar, West Iceland.
Travelling to your holiday house on Iceland
The largest volcanic island of the world is situated just below the northern polar circle, around 1,000 kilometres to the northwest of the Norwegian coast in the Atlantic. The island has 320,000 inhabitants of whom almost one third lives in the capital Reykjavik. The only international airport is Keflavik. During summer the airport is served from Germany, for example from Frankfurt, Berlin, Hamburg and Munich. For transfer from the airport to your holiday apartment or house on Iceland we recommend a rental car. The lovely place Grímsnes in South Iceland can be easily reached in around 1 hour.
