Iceland’s secluded guesthouses and remote retreats make it the ideal location for a unique, romantic honeymoon.
A winter honeymoon in Iceland, between October and March, offers the chance to experience something very special – the magical Northern Lights. We recommend the superb Hotel Ranga (pictured above) for a romantic Northern Lights getaway. This cosy four-star rural retreat sits on the banks of a picturesque salmon river with a backdrop of glaciers and mountains. In the evenings, sit back in the hotel’s outdoor geothermal hot tubs, and cross your fingers for a performance of nature’s most incredible light show.
For a summer honeymoon, we recommend taking to the open road on an Iceland fly-drive for the chance to discover the country’s rugged, natural beauty at your own pace. Travel full circle in just ten days and encounter the volcanoes and glaciers of South Iceland before driving the east coast where narrow fjords carved by Ice Age glaciers create calm natural harbours. Continue north to Husavik – Iceland’s whale watching capital – where between June and mid-August boats make an extra evening trip in search of minke and humpback whales under the midnight sun.
Year-round, add on a night or two in Reykjavik, the world’s northernmost capital which offers a thriving cultural scene and an abundance of first class restaurants. For special occasions we recommend the art-deco Hotel Borg and the funky Hotel Marina.
Of course no honeymoon in Iceland would be complete without a trip to the Blue Lagoon, where wedding day stresses and strains can be eased with a soak in the healing geothermal waters.
