Iceland Active Holidays

Iceland’s rugged and untouched landscapes are perfectly suited to an active holiday. The striking features and geological wonders form a natural playground that cannot fail to delight adventurous travellers. This is the ultimate place to try your hand at some adventurous activities.

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. Alternatively, 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.

Many of the activities can easily be added into a self drive or short break holiday so you can fill your holiday with as many exciting adventures as you wish. Whichever you opt for, combining a love of the outdoors with the wilds of Iceland are the ingredients for a memorable holiday.
