Outdoor Adventures in Iceland is a place of extraordinary landscapes, enthralling natural wonders, and endless outdoor activities. Explore the black lava beaches and green ravines on an all-terrain vehicle tour or venture on one of the world’s most awe-inspiring treks, the Laugavegur trail, which spans a spectrum of volcanic landscapes including red rhyolite mountains, bubbling thermal vents, neon green mosses, and glistening glaciers.
Taking in Iceland’s waterfalls is a must, and this tour is perfect for nature lovers who want to get up close with rushing water. You’ll discover the spectacular Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls in southern Iceland and Dettifoss in the north, as well as the mysterious Hverir Geothermal Area.
Beyond the Fjords: Unleashing Thrills with Outdoor Adventures in the Icelandic Wilderness
For an action-packed adventure, try rafting down Iceland’s fast-flowing rivers. This is a thrilling activity that is suitable for all ages and levels of experience, from beginners to experts. If rafting isn’t for you, there are also gentler river adventures such as canoeing and kayaking, perfect for families or smaller groups.
Getting out into nature is a must in Iceland, and horseback riding is a great way to admire the country’s dramatic scenery. On this tour, you’ll ride an Icelandic horse from the stables in Vik to a black sand beach. If you’re traveling in winter, don’t miss out on a guided glacier walk. This is the best way to discover Iceland’s incredible icecaps, especially the Vatnajokull National Park’s Skaftafell Glacier, which is larger than two Rhode Islands combined!
