The Icelandic horse
Icelandic horses are totally unique, thanks to the isolation of the species, meaning that you will be riding the same horse as the Vikings did. They are famous for their unique gait, known as the tolt, which means that they always have one hoof on the ground. Icelandic horses are the ideal way to explore the rugged Icelandic wilderness, experiencing incredible natural scenery, in a fun and enjoyable way: riding in Iceland is an experience that you won’t want to miss!
Snorkeling in Silfra
A sapphire colored jewel, situated under Thingvellir National Park, the Silfra Fissure is famed for being one of the finest diving sights in the entire world. It is actually a shallow ravine, between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, meaning that you will literally be swimming in the no man’s land between two continents! This combined with the stunning underwater visibility, offered by the glacial waters, makes it an experience that will remain with you for the rest of your life!
The Golden Circle tour encompasses some of Iceland’s most iconic sights, including Geysir, where seething hot springs, throw boiling jets of water up to 25 meters into the air! The magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Site, Thingvellir National Park, which combines stunning natural beauty and geological and historical significance. Thingvellir has the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, running through its center, meaning it literally straddles the continents of Europe and North America, also home to Althingi, the original site of the world’s oldest Parliament! Finally, there is the majestic Gullfoss (Golden Waterfall), whose majestic scenery and golden waters have enchanted people for centuries.
Lava tube caves are ancient volcanic conduits that would have once carried vast rivers of molten rock. As the area becomes less volcanically active, these tubes cool down, forming magnificent lava tube caves, which have gorgeous rock formations, vivid colors and much, much more. Exploring them is a magical experience, which will give you a new perspective on the land of fire and ice.
Glacier Hike and Ice Climbing
Hiking and ice climbing on the mighty Sólheimajökull Glacier is an experience that combines stunning natural scenery, with adrenaline-pumping fun. There are a host of incredible sights on show in this crevice-dotted wilderness, which your friendly guide will tell you all about. Then, around halfway through the tour, we will pause and try out the pulsating sport of ice-climbing (we provide all the necessary equipment), before we explore the ever-evolving glacier some more. It is ideal for anyone who wants a unique experience in a frozen wonderland.
The world-famous Blue Lagoon is one of the finest naturally occurring spas in the entire world. It is nestled in the heart of a lava field close to Reykjavik and combines stunning natural scenery, with volcanically heated waters, to create a luxurious, rejuvenating spa experience. The Blue Lagoons nutrient-rich waters are famed for their healing properties, with Icelandic doctors, known to write prescriptions for a visit. Rest and relax to a stunning backdrop, this is a must-do when visiting the land of Fire and Ice!
