Smith Exclusive: four nights for the price of three
Discover boutique hotels in Iceland
There's no shortage of dramatic scenery in this island nation, where, if you're lucky, you may be treated to a dazzling night under the awe-inspiring Northern Lights. Visitors can also soak in a geothermal lagoon, hike up a volcano under the midnight sun, or catch a concert in buzzy capital Reykjavík. In warmer months, make a loop of the island to visit majestic waterfalls, rugged fjords, glittering ice fields and bubbling hot springs; along the way you'll also see fishing villages, diminutive hamlets and signs of huldufólk (hidden people).

Once a sleepy fishing village, Grindavik shot to prominence with the creation of the Blue Lagoon, a bright-blue geothermal pool surrounded by an 800-year-old lava field.
Located on the edge of the Arctic Circle and surrounded by a volcanic landscape, Reykjavík has developed its own fascinating and wonderfully idiosyncratic sense of style.
Northern Iceland’s Troll Peninsula (Tröllaskagi) lies between the fjords of Skagafjörður and Eyjafjorður; its dramatic landscape is sprinkled liberally with mossy meadows, remote farmhouses and natural hot springs.
