In addition to its incredible landscape - which features lava fields, glaciers, waterfalls, black beaches and hot springs - Iceland is famed for its unique cultural background.
Visit Reykjavik stressed that there are several professionally run tourist attractions, such as the Golden Circle tour, which combine natural beauty with historical learning.
What's more, the short distances between attractions in and around the capital city mean that holidaymakers can spend a minimum of time travelling from place to place.
"Reykjavik is a destination in its own right with lots of excellent restaurants, museums, thermal pools, its famous nightlife, and shopping," spokesperson Maria Reynisdottir said.
She added: "You can really pack a lot into even a short break here - stay in Reykjavik for culture and nightlife and go on day tours to, for example, the Blue Lagoon and Golden Circle."
