What to do in Iceland?

There is a huge range of options available to you in Iceland depending on your areas of interest. The first thought that comes to mind probably involves getting out into the incredible and elemental volcanic landscape. Known as the land of Fire and Ice you can access both extremes all year around during your time in Iceland.

The landscape has many unique geothermal and geological phenomena, from geysers to natural pools warm enough to bath in, greenhouses and active and dormant volcanoes to visit and in some cases scale. At the other extreme and for those of an adventurous disposition you can visit magical Ice caves, go snow-mobiling or even brave a glacier hike.

There are many options for guided day tours; from the famous Golden-Circle where you can take in the sights of Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir and Thingvellir national park, to diving between continents in Silfra to northern lights trips with experienced guides and the magnificent south coast.

Of course a self-drive allows you to explore the landscape in your own time and pace. With the ring-road of highway 1 accessible in most weather conditions and easy to follow you can visit any number of waterfalls, black sand beaches, mountains and glacial lagoons.

If you are a nature lover, Iceland offers incredible whale watching opportunities both in the north of the country and in the capital area of Reykjavik; with a number of species found within our waters and a huge range of seabirds a boat trip is always an exciting experience.

For those who prefer dry land, horse riding in Iceland is a very specific experience. The Icelandic horse may be small in stature but they are hardy, strong and gently dispositioned- allowing for a unique way to travel through the glorious volcanic landscape.
