If you've never been kayaking, Iceland is the perfect place to give it a go. In the summer when the sea is calm, you can explore fjords from a unique perspective - in the middle of them! Even for experienced kayakers, there's nothing quite like floating down crystal clear water with mountains and cliffs towering around you. If you're lucky, you might even spot some seals enjoying the sun!
Ice Cave Tour - It's cooler than it looks!
Okay, ice cave tours look extremely cool to begin with. I just wanted to make an ice pun. But seriously, if touring an ice cave in Iceland wasn't on your bucket list before, it should be now. Go with a group or get a private tour - either way you'll be amazed by the naturally forming caves and rich blue colors surrounding you.
Yes, you read that right. Þríhnúkagígur is the only volcano in the world that you can explore from the inside! During the trip, you'll descend 120m into a massive magma chamber. I can guarantee you're going to lava it...
I know, that was pathetic. These bad puns just keep erupting out of me...
The Land of Fire and Ice
Iceland is known as the land of fire and ice for good reason. The country lies on the divergent boundary between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates, directly above a hotspot known as the Icelandic plume. This creates some magma-ficent hot springs that will keep you warm all year long.
Scuba in Silfra
The Silfra fissure offers scuba diving like you've never imagined. Glacier meltwater fills a canyon with sparklingly clear water that allows for almost perfect visibility. Drift peacefully along with the current to explore the area between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. But don't pack your bags just yet - you must be scuba certified before you can join this incredible tour!
The Midnight Sun
As you wrap up your adventure-packed day, prepare for a site that you can only see in a handful of places around the world - the midnight sun. Because Iceland is situated so close to the Arctic Circle, seasons change in full swing. During summer months, the nights are bright and sometimes even offer 24 hours of sunlight!
