For those seeking an adrenaline-filled trip to Iceland, look no further than Red Bull’s guide to the most adventurous things to do in Iceland. From jumping out of helicopters to deep sea diving, just reading about these activities is enough to get anyone’s heart racing.
If you’re brave enough to bear the chilly waters of Iceland, Red Bull recommends several water adventures. Get to know Iceland underwater by scuba diving one of its many dive sites, including a chasm where you can touch two continents between the Eurasian and American continental plates. You can also catch a wave by going arctic surfing across the freezing ocean. If you want to be on the water but don’t want to get wet, you can still experience Iceland’s sights and wildlife by going sea fishing for the day.
For those looking to reach new heights, activities such as heli skiing and glacier hiking are sure to get your blood pumping as you jump out of a helicopter to hit the slopes or climb across Iceland’s thirteen glaciers and ice caps. Don’t forget your camera!
To get off foot and experience Iceland by vehicle, hop on a snowmobile or fat bike to race across Iceland’s frozen and rugged landscape. If you really want to get your legs moving, you can embark on this six-day adventure of hiking up (and then skiing down) different mountains around Iceland.
Take Iceland’s popular Blue Lagoon attraction to the next level by first braving the cold waters at geothermal beaches. Run across the snow to jump in the ocean, and then warm yourself up in the hot pools and showers. If you want to skip the crowds at the geothermal pools, go searching to find your own hidden hot spring to enjoy beneath the Northern Lights. You can find them scattered across Iceland at this map.
