Adventure Holidays in Iceland

A geological giant, Iceland is where volcanoes rumble, glaciers groan and the scenery astounds

Tours in Iceland

Exodus offers an array of adventure tours to Iceland – a country that conjures up images of huge waterfalls, glaciers, spouting geysers and steaming hot pools. Reykjavik is a small but beautiful city and provides the start and end point for most of our Iceland tours. Outside the city lies a landscape begging to be explored; trekking here is fantastic.

Iceland tours make amazing adventure holidays, with visits to the impressive Gullfoss and Godafoss waterfalls, Lake Myvatn and the Jokulsarlon Lagoon keeping you busy. In winter there is the chance to try snowshoeing and glacier exploration. Iceland is also one of the best destinations for Northern Lights holidays, and no trip  would be complete without immersing yourself in the steaming waters of the Blue Lagoon.

Iceland trips: Essential experiences

1. Explore the Big Country: While it’s not necessarily big in geographical terms, Iceland is massive when it comes to geological diversity and geographic features. The interior mainly consists of a plateau characterised by sand fields, mountains and glaciers, while many big glacial rivers stream to the sea through the lowlands. 

2. Bathe in the Blue Lagoon: After a hard day's mountaineering, there is no better place to relax and revitalise than in the warm mineral-rich hot springs of the Blue Lagoon. It's fed by heated seawater and surrounded by walls of black lava. 

3. Visit Skogafoss waterfall: At 60m high, Skogafoss is a white blanket of water cascading over the edge of the clifftop and crashing down to the river below. For an alternative view, you can walk right behind the waterfall – a compelling reminder of the power of the elements. 

4. Go whale watching: Trips to Iceland offer some amazing opportunities for whale watching, with the country's rich waters attracting a great diversity of species: killer whales, humpback whales, pilot whales and white-beaked dolphins, not to mention sperm, fin, minke and blue whales.
