Adventure Coordinators A-list: Iceland
As part of our commitment to giving you unbiased adventure travel advice, here is our A-list of the best adventure tours in Iceland.
Nature in Iceland is designed to make you feel insignificant - volcanoes covered by ice loom over a verdant green coastline,, glaciers grind their way to the ocean, geysers erupt and the northern lights dance in the sky. All the while culture blooms - from medieval sagas to modern pop-musicians and Nobel-prize winning authors. And then there is the glorious food and the warm, quirky people - what is there not to love about Iceland?
