Diving into the –2C water of the Silfra fissure in Þingvellir National Park, where the continents of America and Eurasia meet, is a breathtaking (no pun intended), unique experience. With 200 metre visibility in glacial waters, you will wonder at your surroundings and, best of all, be able to touch both continents at once!

Taking to the roads in Iceland is great, but off-road, the terrain can get tricky, so a jeep tour is a perfect adventure holiday idea – expert drivers can take you to must-see sights, then bring you across lava fields and onto a glacier in a white-knuckle tour as thrilling as it is beautiful.
Horse Riding tour

The Icelandic horse has a unique gait that makes riding very comfortable, so you can relax while your trusty steed brings you into the interior to marvel at nature’s wonders in this magical environment. Tours range from two hours to several days.
Descend into a volcano

As a land of ice and fire, Iceland can offer a unique experience where you can descend into a volcano. After a hike to the crater of the dormant Þríhnjúkagígur Cave, the only way is down, 120 metres down, to explore the volcano’s interior – something you can’t do anywhere else.
