The Scandinavian country offers a 'very new experience'
Travellers planning solo holidays to Iceland will probably not find it very hard to make friends in the Scandinavian country once they arrive, according to the local tourist board.
Sigga Groa, UK and Ireland area manager for Visit Iceland, said that the residents of the country are very friendly and inclusive.
"Icelanders know how to throw a party and love involving all the locals in their celebrations," he said.
"We have an interesting and unique taste for both food and music, so for many visitors, it will be a very new experience."
People visiting the country next month will be able to attend both the Reykjavik Folk Festival and the Food and Fun Festival, both taking place in the capital.
Ms Groa noted: "These are a great couple of days to explore the city as Icelanders are very proud of their culinary and musical history
"As an added bonus, the Northern Lights are active this time of year," she added.
Iceland is known as "The Land of Ice and Fire" due to the country's expansive glacial landscapes and semi-regular volcanic activity.
