Luxury travel Iceland: Iceland, renowned for its other-worldly landscape, unique language and a people who believe in elves, would be one of the most fascinating destinations in Europe. Notoriously expensive, this Scandinavian country packs so much within its borders- headline-grabbing volcanoes, spectacular geysers, imposing glaciers, the enchanting Northern Lights and the sweeping valleys that make up Iceland has made it a favourite location spot for epic productions like the Game of Thrones.

An island country located in the northern Atlantic and one of the countries on the northern tip of Europe, Iceland is believed to have had its first settler in a certain Ingolfur Arnarson. As an aside, Icelandic names are distinctive that way- with a ‘son’ appendix for sons and a ‘dottir’ for daughters following the names of the fathers. With Scotland and Greenland as its neighbours, the harsh climate of Iceland has in a way, safeguarded its isolation from the rest of the world for a very long time. This has allowed for a complex structure of legends and mythology to develop, distinguishing Icelandic culture from most of Scandinavia.

For horse lovers, the Icelandic horse is also world-famous for its gait, the tolt and the flying pace. Icelandic horse connoisseurs go to Iceland to experience the Icelandic horse in its home environment. Even beginners would be able to experience the tolt during a half-day ride. More experienced riders can take more complex rides stretching over several days and going across a greater variety of landscapes.

Riding a snowmobile is also one of the ‘must-do’ things in Iceland. While dog-sledding is available, this is better done in Greenland, the capital of dog-sledding and which can be done in a combination itinerary designed by Urbane Nomads.  The Northern Lights count as one of the main attractions of Iceland and is available, together with riding the snow mobile and glacier trekking, in the winter. Heli-skiing fanatics would have seen many a photo of a heli-skier going down a slope that stretches seemingly into the sea. There are many several virgin slopes in Iceland, owing less to the gradient of the slope than it is to the sheer number of slopes available in Iceland.

Summer activities include hiking, whale watching and trips to Greenland, which are more easily accessed in the summer.

Urbane Nomads also offers incentive trips to Iceland, ranging from luxury wilderness camping to glacier trekking interspersed with lunch break in ‘secret spots’.
