Iceland is a land of contrasts and famous for its hot springs, waterfalls, volcanos and glaciers. Rarely does anyone go to Iceland for a city break - instead, the most popular attractions are the natural wonders that are easily reached by using a rental car.

Regardless of the length of your trip - days, weeks or months - Iceland has plenty in store for all seasons.
