At the Icelandic Lava Show they melt rocks to make lava indoors. The only place in the world to do so.

Helicopter ride to Mt. Esja with Norðurflug Helicopters
For somebody who frequency runs up and down Mt. Esja it was an incredible experience to let a helicopter swoop you up to the summit of Mt. Esja. And having a glas a bubbly didn´t harm at all.

The pioneers of eco friendly whale watching operate from the town of Húsavík which is on the Diamond Circle route in the north east of Iceland. The town is right next to the bay of Skjálfandi which is teeming with whales.

My daughter and I went on a Paragliding adventure with Happyworld and it was just one of the best times I have ever had! In the wintertime Happyworld offers small group northern lights tours. We recommend that you go on a small group tours rather than the big buses. More change of actually getting to know people and see things better.

Snowmobiling on Langjökull with Mountaineers of Iceland
It is just incredible to be up on an Icelandic Glacier. Being on a powerful snowmobile is infinitely more fun!

Into the Glacier
How can I even explain this one? You go up to Langjökull glacier on converted military trucks that used to carry missiles. Then they drop you off in front of an entrance to a massively deep tunnel that has been carved into the glacier. Inside there is a huge crevice and a chapel (!).

This is just an incredible experience. You descend deep down into this one of a kind volcanic magma chamber. This is yet another experience that I just am not very well able to explain. To be down there in deep magma chamber nothing short of a metaphysical experience. I couldn´t help thinking that the enormous dome I was in was once full of lava. Now it is just a cathedral-like empty space.

Boat r[/button]e Glacier Lagoon
If you are going all the way to the world-famous Glacier Lagoon on the South Eastern edge of Iceland please don´t miss going on the boat ride there. On the boat you can get up close to the massive icebergs on the lagoon. You should consider passage of time when you are out on the lake. The icebergs you see are truly ancient.
