Activities and tours - Iceland accommodation

The country of Iceland is defined by its landscape. Dramatic and enchanting this land is known for its volcanoes, geysers, lava fields and hot springs. One of the most popular tourist attractions in Iceland is the famous 'Blue Lagoon' - a body of thermal water said to have restorative and healing powers. The Blue Lagoon is a great day-trip destination, providing relaxation and fun in equal measure for young and old alike! During your stay in our Iceland accommodation you could also take the opportunity to visit some of the other incredible natural phenomena typical of the Icelandic landscape.

Iceland apartments and cottages

There are many fantastic areas of natural beauty which we would recommend you try to visit whilst renting our holiday cottages and apartments in Iceland, including some incredible waterfalls and unique geological formations. Amongst all these natural sites lie some man-made monuments which would also be well-worth a visit whilst self-catering in Iceland with NOVASOL. Arguably one of the most famous is the easily distinguishable 'Hallgrimskirkja' in Reyjavik. Towering to around 73 metres high it is among the tallest structures in Iceland.

Explore the country’s exciting capital of Reykjavik

Even if not staying in the capital city itself, we would suggest spending at least a day in Iceland's capital city of Reykjavik. The city is vibrant and cosmopolitan, offering a variety of uniquely Icelandic and more global cultural attractions and exciting experiences and attractions in wait. The city plays host to music festivals and concerts throughout the year, as well as a number of traditional and customary events, which make self-catering in Iceland a good choice at any time of year. You could also explore the country's fascinating Icelandic history and heritage during a visit to the National Museum of Iceland.
