The Snaefellsnes Peninsula
One of Iceland’s most beloved landscapes -- the Snaefellsnes Peninsula.

Iceland is one of the world's hippest destinations, offering a getaway like none other.

And it's closer than you think – and more fun than you’ve ever dreamed 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.

When traveling to Iceland in winter you should bring along clothing similar to what you would wear at the same time of year in the US northeast. For summer you might want to bring along lightweight woolens, a windbreaker, sneakers and sturdy walking shoes if you plan to go hiking. Always bring a swimsuit - year round.
