Holidays to Iceland give you snow-capped adventures for less

Iceland's glacial landscape might seem like a world away, but cheap holidays to this outdoor-centric spot are only two hours and 40 minutes off.

Iceland is a destination known for its landscapes – icy, beachy and mountainous all at once. Few other places on this earth exist where you can scale a glacier in the morning and by the afternoon be lounging by the beach, though we'll admit it does help that some of these shores are heated up by geothermal springs. Even the sky is special, courtesy of the Northern Lights. Experiencing this dynamic spot doesn't have to mean returning home from your holiday with an empty wallet – Iceland is packed with cheap activities both of the natural and manmade variety.

Reykjavik is Iceland's capital city, and therefore the best place to anchor a holiday on a budget – its offerings are vast and varied. You'll have your pick of the ultra-popular geothermal pools, walks around black sand beaches and hiking trips to help you get the best views of the city. If you're looking to score a deal, you might consider visiting Iceland in the off-season, from September to March. Temperatures might be a little colder but that's when the Northern Lights take to the sky.

Cheap days out in Iceland

Making the most of Iceland on a budget means getting outdoors and experiencing this gorgeous landscape firsthand. Within Reykjavik alone, you'll find beaches, hot springs, museums and a gateway to hiking and biking trips, all free of charge.

At the top of the list is the Nautholsvik geothermal beach, a manmade creation where warm water from natural hot springs and cold from the sea mix together in a sandy lagoon to make one seriously comfortable day on the coast. A crazy number of geothermal pools pepper spaces in and around the city that only cost a small entrance fee. If you're looking for high-flying sights, there's the breathtaking peaks of Mount Esja, part of a volcanic mountain range. But if you want to stick to exploring the ins and outs of the city itself, you can simply join a free walking tour.

Other cheap holidays to take a look at

If you've still got your sights set on a cheap holiday but aren't totally sold on Iceland, we can point you in the right direction. Have a look at destinations like Lapland and Slovenia, or go for something completely different with sunny Spain or Greece.
