Day Tours & Activities in Iceland
The wilderness of Iceland has much to offer the adventurous traveller. Here you'll find an abundance of recreational opportunities, including adventure excursions and activity tours for individuals and groups.
Would you like to experience the magical world of Iceland's glaciers by snowmobile or super-jeep? How about rafting down the rapids of glacial rivers or sea kayaking in a fjord?
There are so many possibilities!
Those looking for more relaxing adventures can partake in guided horse-riding excursions through mossy lava fields, whale watching, quiet bird watching or perhaps try their hand at sea-angling.
There are also several options of guided bus or ferry tours to remote, untouched places in the country's wild interior or around the magnificent coastline. And in the winter, the elusive northern lights will lure you away from the city lights to watch them dance.
