Last-minute tips before you plan your trip
Iceland offers a stunning environment that feels like the end of the earth with Volcanoes, waterfalls, fjords, geysers, hot springs and welcoming locals all packed into a quirky island about the size of Ireland. Despite its small size, this unique island nation, technically considered a part of the European economic zone but culturally and geologically worlds apart from anywhere else, offers a diverse and constantly shifting landscape that has become a preferred destination for people from all over the world.
With an Evaneos local agent, you can not only choose the exact spots you want to see, but also work in some off the beaten path excursions. After you take in the quaint towns and stunning national parks that have catapulted Iceland to the top of must-see lists in the last few years, relax in cosy accommodation and soak in the geothermal hot springs.

Wondering where to see Puffins, Iceland’s adorable birds that populate its basalt beaches, or the best time of year to watch whales splash in the ocean? Your local agent knows every possible activity in the whole country. Previous travellers have spent their days in Iceland:
