Best things to do and see in Iceland

What popular events take place in Iceland?

If you’re looking for Iceland flight deals through momondo, you should check out flight dates that may coincide with some of the country’s best and most famous events throughout the year. During either January or February, locals celebrate the ‘feast of Þorri’, a winter festival named after the Old Icelandic Calendar. People come together to eat local foods, including salty fish-based snacks. Some local delicacies include fermented shark and sour ram testicles. If that’s too much for you, a more relatable event might be the Reykjavik Art Festival, taking place annually from 18 May to 3 June and celebrating, amongst others, music and visual arts with a particular focus on innovation. Every 21 June, Icelandic natives gather to celebrate Summer Solstice. It’s a very special day in Iceland, not just due to the traditional Pagan celebrations, but also because the sun doesn’t set in what is known as the ‘midnight sun’. You can also check out the Secret Solstice music festival, held in Laugardalur Park in the centre of Reykjavik.

Is Iceland known for specific food/cuisine?

Iceland is a great place to visit, and the local cuisine just makes the experience better. During your visit, you must try local delicacies to know the real Iceland, and you won’t be disappointed when you do. The region’s traditional fare is predominantly prepared from seafood and lamb and can be classified as one of the healthiest cuisines in the world. Hangikjot is smoked lamb served with potatoes, white sauce, peas, and pickled red cabbage. Kjotsupa is a lamb-based soup that comes with vegetables such as carrots, potatoes, and onions. When it comes to fish, Atlantic cod is a popular dish amongst locals, whilst langoustine soup is the signature dish of the Saegreifinn Restaurant in Reykjavik. Some hearty fish dishes dominate the Icelandic menu, and Plokkfiskur, or fish stew in English, is the country’s national dish: a simple but tasty mix of cod, vegetables, flour, and milk. It goes particularly well with locally made rye bread, a speciality in these parts. For freshwater fish, look no further than Arctic Char, which can be cooked in a variety of ways and is usually served with vegetables or fries.

What can you see and do in Iceland?

Iceland is a highly popular tourist destination, and rightly so, as it has some of the most stunning natural landscapes in the world. Booking flights to Iceland will enable you to experience the amazing scenery for yourself. You can find cheap flight deals to Reykjavik from London, Edinburgh, Birmingham, and Glasgow, amongst others. A great start to your trip could be to follow the ‘Golden Circle’, a well-known route taking you past some fantastic sites, including the iconic Strokkur Geyser and the Gulfoss Falls waterfall. Iceland is also famous for its geothermal natural baths, with the Blue Lagoon at the top of most visitors’ bucket list and a great place for an early morning soak. Should you visit in winter, you can even watch the sunrise while relaxing in the pools. Everyone should aim to witness, season permitting, the incredible Northern Lights. March and September tend to produce the brightest phenomenon. The region is also a great place for a spot of whale watching, while the capital of Reykjavik has a great cultural centre waiting to be explored.

What passport or visa requirements are there when visiting Iceland?

If you’re travelling to Iceland from the UK, you must provide a passport that is valid for at least three months after the date you depart Iceland. As a UK citizen, you are permitted entry for 90 days on a tourist visa.
