Why Iceland is the Perfect Holiday Destination

People traveling to Iceland normally have a clear idea of what they want to experience. The trigger for a trip to Iceland can be diverse: visiting friends, a photo excursion, participating in a conference, or coming for work, are just some of the possible reasons. However, most visitors come to Iceland to enjoy their holidays. Iceland’s unique nature and untouched expanses attract ever more guests from all over the world each year.

Why Choosing a Holiday Home is the Best Option in Iceland?

If Iceland’s nature and unspoiled wilderness are at the heart of your trip, our excellent Roof ‘n’ Route and holiday homes offer the perfect accommodation for discovering all parts of Iceland. Why only make day trips from the hotel returning each evening, if it is possible to start the experience already at the holiday home? Marvelous nature, undisturbed views and full freedom for body and mind around the clock? This abundance of possibilities opens up with our holiday homes, which you will find in different regions of Iceland. With the “Roof ‘n’ Route” concept, for example, you can spend a few days and nights in our holiday home in the Golden Circle and then continue your vacation in Hamragil in the north of the island. Are you more interested in the West Fjords? Add our holiday home Tvera in the West Fjords to your travel plans and discover the oldest part of Iceland, geologically speaking.

Unforgettable Nights in Iceland: Northern Lights and Hot Tubs

Visitors in Iceland should not only consider the days, but also the nights. While the summer nights offer seemingly never-ending twilight moods, the long nights of winter bring the chance for Northern Lights. Enjoy a “private Northern Lights performance” in one of our holiday homes! Thanks to its favorable location in the midst of untouched nature, you can enjoy the spectacle without light pollution. If it gets too cold during the Northern Light Show, just jump into the hot tub and enjoy the night sky with the dancing lights. The pleasantly warm geothermal water will caress you. An experience you will never forget!
