Brave the rapids of glacial melt waters on a river rafting trip and you'll get a whole new perspective on Iceland’s dramatic scenery. Easy to get the hang of, snowmobiles are not only great fun, but they give you access to some of Iceland’s wildest and most spectacular scenery – imagine driving across Iceland’s largest icecap, great fun and fantastic views in one!

Lace up your walking boots and stride out on volcanic deserts and black-sand beaches or hike to lake shores and sheltered green valleys. Walk through magical ice sculptures, ridges and crevasses on a glacier hike, go quad biking on the rugged Reykjanes Peninsula through lava fields or saddle up on one of Iceland’s 'Viking' horses and gallop past waterfalls and across rivers in breathtaking landscapes.
