We recommend staying in the capital city, Reykjavik and exploring the country by car or organised coach tours.
Poland is an incredibly interesting country to head to for a holiday this year and particularly if you are seeking out a city break destination.

Portugal is the perfect holiday destination if you are looking to slow down the pace of life, sit on stunning beaches and relax around a pool whilst basking in glorious sunshine. As beach holidays go Portugal is a superb European destination that won’t disappoint. The city of Lisbon offers a fun, lively and colourful experience that also makes Portugal the ideal destination for a city break.
Spain is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe due to its ability to offer both city breaks and beach holidays in abundance.

For something a little more cultural head to Barcelona which will allow for old city street exploring but also the option for a beach holiday.
Turkey is an incredibly interesting country that is uniquely situated between Europe and Asia.
