Iceland: What to do when you get there?

Come and visit this exquisite island where the landscapes second to none!

As Europe’s second largest island, Iceland has a plethora of extreme sports to offer its visitors. As temperatures rarely exceed 15 degrees, most activities are based around winter and snow sports.

The island is renowned for its excellent conditions for skiing, snowboarding and ice climbing. It has also become the number one destination for alpine ski touring and telemark skiing.

Due to its large number of mountains, volcanoes and lush vegetation, it has become a playground for thrill seekers and naturalists looking to enjoy rock climbing, mountain climbing and hiking in magnificent backdrops. For those of you who don't fancy trekking across the mountains, you can opt for a quad bike or buggy excursion, both of which will really get the adrenaline pumping.

There are 3 main national parks and each offers unique insight into the rugged and dramatic environments of Iceland. The largest of which is Vatnajökull National Park, it contains rivers, glacial ice and volcanoes. Þingvellir National Park houses the oldest existing parliament in the world, which is why it is UNESCO World Heritage Site. And last but not least, the Snæfellsjökull National Park is the first national park that was established in Iceland, it sits at the foot of a volcano and glacier.

Nature lovers can see whales in their natural habitat during the summer months, namely from April through to September. The island counts over 20 species of Cetacea; Orca, Minke, Humpback, and Blue Whale.

The volcanic island has many interesting sites to explore both beneath its surface as well as above it and what better way than through guided caving expeditions.

From September to April, Iceland is exposed to a striking natural display: the phenomenon of aurora borealis, named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas and is more commonly known as the Northern Lights!
