Iceland holiday homes are becoming increasingly popular amongst travellers looking to book a new holiday experience in a unique and unusual place, as the island nation of Iceland fits the bill perfectly. Don't be fooled by the name – only 11% of Iceland is actually covered by glaciers. Its varied and unusual topography makes it ideal for adventure holidays in rented holiday cottages in Iceland – visitors can enjoy whitewater rafting, kayaking, ice and rock climbing, fishing, cycling, whale watching, and horse riding. Indeed, one of the most remarkable things about this amazing country is the Icelandic horse, a fuzzy little animal that can happily carry a grown man across fields of rocky lava and moss. There are many stables in Iceland that offer horse riding trips for visitors during their stay in an Iceland holiday apartment – this is the highlight of any Iceland trip, as it offers the unique opportunity to see this island just the way the Vikings did. Much of the land is not connected by roads, and horseback is the best way to see some of the more off-the-beaten-track corners from your holiday cottage in Iceland. Iceland is a travel destination adequate for those people, who are searching for amazing and new things. If you'd rather something more traditional, how about a skiing holiday in a chalet in the French Alps?.
