If you are under the impression that the scenery in Iceland is less vibrant in colour in the fall than in the summer time, you are soon to find out otherwise. This time of the year the countryside is characterised by colours covering the whole of the warmer side of the colour spectrum, ranging from yellow, greenish to red and purple tones and the mountains are dressed in grizzled caps, making their appearance even more distinguished. This is also the favourite season of the northern lights lovers as this tireless phenomenon will rise from dormancy and delight locals and guests alike with its random, yet majestic performances. If you have come to experience the quiet nature that you’ve heard so much about, this is a prime time to do so. With fewer visitors travelling about the country, chances are that when you reach your favourite spot you may actually have it all to yourself. And yet you will find, regardless of where your heart is set on going, that there will be full service available with hotels, guesthouses, restaurants and shops open all year round to meet your needs. Of course, there are plenty of tour guides and travel agencies in every region, where you will find expert knowledge of the area and the activities available, ensuring that you will have the most enjoyable holiday possible. Another group worth mentioning, that appreciates this placid season, are the numerous craftspeople and artists who commonly have more time to attend to their creations. In this edition we will highlight the first-rate handiwork of designers and craftspeople, who put their heart and soul into their trade. Whether you plan on staying in the Reykjavik area or are headed to the countryside you will find a surprisingly wide variety of quality design, skilfully handmade with bundles of love. If you are still short on a Christmas present or two, you should find an abundance of ideas right here. We hope you enjoy this feature packed edition and that your holiday will be everything you dreamed it to be.
