Experiences

Iceland has a little something for every kind of tourist. There's skiing, horseriding, golfing, caving, etc.

  • Mountaineers of Iceland - The drive to the glaciers is itself extraordinary and once there, the views are breathtaking. Look out for cathartic sunsets.
  • Whale Safari - Get in warm overalls and on a speed boat. Go zooming around the harbor. Play with dolphins. Watch whales and puffings.
  • Oddur Golf Course - Visit the beautiful heathland landscape filled with lava fields. Golf as you are cheered on by a symphony of moor birds. Don't get too lost in the romance though, the Oddur golf course is a fine challenge with its top holes located just 100MSL.
