Iceland is closer than you think – and more fun than you’ve ever dreamt of. This mid-Atlantic island is the USA’s closest European neighbor. With a flight time from New York only a jet lag-free 4.5 hours, you’re ready for action as soon as you arrive. And no matter the season, there’s always more than enough waiting for you to do.
The chilliest thing about Iceland is its name! In January, the average temperature in Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital, is higher than that in New York. And Iceland’s welcome for tourists is always warm. Almost everyone speaks fluent English and Icelanders aren’t really given to formalities. After all, even the telephone directory lists people by their first name.

Reykjavik is a city where you’ll feel safe to walk the streets. Cozy, charming, a “village feel” and friendly people. But as much entertainment, action and things to do as a metropolis of millions. And with all the modern conveniences, a high quality of life and world-class services. Even so, it’s still only a 15-minute cab ride between downtown and wild nature, where you’ll feel you’re the only person on Earth. Iceland is the ideal place for taking a break and setting foot on a European outpost with an exciting, lively, and ancient – but living culture all of its own. You’ll feel at home – free to walk around, shop, admire, explore. It’s a place you could go on discovering forever.
