Calling All Thrill Seekers! Iceland Beckons

23 September 2017 Iceland



Tell people that you’re heading to Iceland and most people think that you’re venturing on an excursion to see the Northern Lights or you’re going to be enjoying a leisurely few days basking in the natural hot spas adorning the island. Little do they know that Iceland is a phenomenal destination that offers up a range of adrenaline-inducing activities that will enable you to get your thrill-seeking kicks all in one place. This tiny island is full of extreme activities that will make you the envy of your friends. Take a look at these activities that you might want to partake in when you hot foot it to Iceland. And of course, you may want to have a gander at the Aurora Borealis as well.

Glacier Hiking


Led by a fully qualified instructor, you’ll be strapping on your crampons and harness before venturing on a hike across ice that formed thousands of years ago. The awe-inspiring scenery that you will witness as you make your ascent up the glacier will probably stop you in your tracks. However, it’s important to keep your head in the glacier hiking game as the cracks and crevices beneath your feet make this activity become heart pumping and sweaty palm inducing. Specialist active Iceland tours will see experts arrange a series of activities for you when you book as well as sorting out all of your accommodation, travel arrangements and itinerary leaving you to just enjoy the experience.

Caving


Venturing deep underground with crampons, ropes, boots and a light on your helmet, you’ll be setting foot into a rarely trodden dark world. Depending on the cave you descend into, you may stumble across an ice lagoon, take a paddle in an underground pool, marvel at a field like space of ice stalactites or squeeze yourself through some tight tunnels that you need to manoeuvre expertly. All expert-led, these tours underground get the adrenaline pumping with their eerie quiet, odd light and alien-like landscape.

Snowmobiling



The modern-day husky-drawn sleigh is the snowmobile. For the ultimate thrill ride across the snow, try to find an excursion that heads to Landmannalaugar for the ultimate challenging environment in which to snowmobile. You’ll be given your overalls, gloves, and helmet before a safety talk. Once this very important bit is out of the way, you get to cross the Langjökull glacier before traversing the geothermal area at the foot of the Kerlingarfjöll mountain. The barren white backdrop will take your breath away as you master your vehicle and pick up the pace across the powder.

Iceland is a land of contrasts. You can spend your days experiencing a huge variety of adrenaline inducing activities while your evenings can be spent hunting for the Aurora Borealis, taking a dip in a geothermal salt pool or heading into Reykjavik for a traditional Icelandic dinner of pickled herring and shark. There is no better place than Iceland to immerse yourself in a truly unique Scandinavian culture.
