5 Unforgettable Experiences in Iceland

Iceland is truly an amazing place to visit. There are so many things to see and experience that no matter how long you stay you will always have wished you stayed longer. Here are 5 experiences to do in Iceland that we believe you will never forget.

1. Fly in a helicopter over a volcanic eruption.

There is nothing else in the world like flying over an erupting volcano knowing that you’re only a short distance from such a powerful and destructive force.

2. Surf in the freezing cold North Atlantic Ocean.

When you think of Iceland you don’t really think of surfing but Iceland has some amazing spots to surf and our friends at Arctic Surfers are the experts at finding those spots. So be brave and jump into the freezing cold ocean with your surfboard. We can promise that you won’t regret it 😉

3. Super jeeping on top of Eyjafjallajokull Volcano

The Icelanders have become one of the best in the world in modifying jeeps to work in extreme conditions. A popular super jeep tour takes you to the highest point of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano, yeah the volcano that stopped most of air traffic in Europe when it erupted in 2010. If you’re interested we’ll connect you with our very good friends at South Iceland Adventures.

4. Natural hot springs

Iceland has many amazing hot springs some of which have the perfect temperature to bath in. It can often be difficult to find most of them unless you have a local with you to show you the way. But when you do find them they are an unforgettable experience. Our favorite hot spring is in Reykjadalur (e. The Smokey Valley) and we think it is awesome because the bathing spot is located exactly where a boiling hot geothermal hot spring meets a freezing cold glacial river. The outcome is the perfect temperature for bathing. And if your traveling there with good friends then it can be a good idea to take a nice cold beer to enjoy while bathing 🙂

5. Let the northern lights visit you!

One of the most beautiful natural phenomenon you will ever see are the northern lights. But it can be difficult to chase after them as it can be difficult to predict where and when they will appear. Our solution to that is to rent a cottage with a hot tub, while everything around you will be covered in snow the hot tub will still be warm and nice. So just turn down most of the lights in the cottage, sit in the hot tub and watch the beautiful star bright sky and if your lucky the northern lights might start dancing above you. Trust me, there is nothing more beautiful or cozy than that and if you want to experience it you can book a cottage right now at Bungalo.com 🙂
