Iceland's outdoor adventures await: rivers to raft, black sands to bike, great variations of mountains to hike, seas and lakes to explore.
Iceland has vast expanses of black sand beaches, 130 volcanoes, 10,000 waterfalls; geysers, 24 hours of daylight during the summer, and highlands affording 360° panoramic vistas of the island’s sublime landscape
Iceland is without doubt one of the most exciting locations in the world for nature photography. The landscape is dominated by wide open vistas, mountains, glaciers, black volcanic beaches, geothermal activity, and waterfalls. These majestic views are hard to find anywhere else in the world. It is also a place where millions of birds come to breed every summer, home to some of the largest bird colonies in Europe. Iceland borders the Arctic Circle and receives about 24 hours of daylight in the summer time, about 4 hours in the high winter.
Discover amazing scenery that will take your breath away: craggy mountains, raw nature, dirt and often wet weather, extreme off road conditions like you have dreamed of.
