A&K Top Tip

 Don't miss trying some of the specialties at the 1919 restaurant, including Arctic Char over catfish cheeks with puréed potatoes, smoked Puffin meat with blueberry sauce and Icelandic Mountain Lamb. Request the Deluxe rooms in the old building with their parquet floors and stucco ceilings, we loved them.

Guest Testimonial

I just wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you (Ailine Fischer) for the amazing experience in Iceland. This trip was an absolute dream. Everything about it was magical and words truly fall short. The guides, both Jon from A&K and all of the Land Rover crew were knowledgeable, friendly, and professional.

Best time to be there

June to September is a great time to enjoy a mild ocean climate thanks to the Gulf Stream. It is relatively mild in winter and cool in summer but this is when you can enjoy almost 24 hours of daylight. The weather can change several times during the day. In midwinter, whilst there is little daylight, it is one of the best times to see the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis).
