This adventure takes participants to Iceland – a land of fire and ice. It’s an adventure with an amphibious twist!
First up, you’ll dive the crystal-clear waters of Silfra, the fissure between the North American and Eurasian continents. The spectacular Silfra provides a rare opportunity to dive between two continental plates. The Silfra’s waters are amazingly clear, pristine and drinkable. Whilst under the water, you’ll enjoy visibility of up to 100 metres and glimpse the legendary “troll hair” – a bright-green algae on the bottom.
After surfacing from Silfra, you’ll enjoy a breather before preparing to climb Hvannadalshnúkur – Iceland’s highest peak at 2,110 metres. The climb is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to catch panoramic views of the breathtaking Vatnajökull glacier in all its splendour. Whilst ascending Hvannadalshnúkur, you’ll need to navigate numerous crevasses and slippery slopes. The trip down is no less demanding.
After conquering Hvannadalshnúkur, you’ll then enjoy classic Nordic activities, such as snowmobiling, ice-caving and glacier exploring – not to mention a trip to the legendary Blue Lagoon. The Blue Lagoon is a geothermal pool located in a lava field near Grindavik. Its warm, soothing waters – rich in silica and sulphur – will soothe your sore and tired muscles.
