Iceland offers many hiking opportunities. Hiking in Iceland is no easy business, strong walking boots which support your ankles are recommended as the terrain is usually craggy lava rock or springy moss with hidden holes!

Iceland is not well known for skiing or big ski areas but the town of Akureyri in the north has a great little ski area and the mountains of the Troll Peninsula offer world class terrain for ski touring, ski mountaineering and heli skiing.

Ice climbing is great with world class frozen waterfalls and plenty of glaciers.

Glacier hiking is one of Iceland´s most popular tourist things to do with the area of Skaftafell in the SE being the center of activity.

Whale watching available all year from Reykjavik and during the summer from Husavik.

There are some good opportunities to go mobiling and this can provide access to otherwise inaccessable areas.
