Tusker Trail’s Iceland Adventure is packed with 12 days of one-of-a-kind outdoor adventure travel opportunities, from horseback riding and whale watching to deep sea fishing and boating amongst the icebergs. However, Iceland has even more to offer. The coastal capital city of Reykjavík is our departure and arrival point, but linger a little longer, and you can take advantage of other nearby attractions.
If you have an evening flight on Day 12, opt for a stop at Blue Lagoon on your way home. This geothermal spa offers unprecedented relaxation right in the middle of a lava field, and it’s just twelve miles away from Keflavík International Airport. Blue Lagoon isn’t just a luxurious man-made lagoon; it also doubles as a research facility because its warm, blue seawater is rich with minerals that rejuvenate the skin. Whether you want to recharge your batteries after your long adventure or start your trip with a relaxing dip, Blue Lagoon is an ideal place to unwind.
Reykjavík Bike Tours
Instead of hopping on a tour bus to see the sites, consider climbing on a bicycle to explore the city and its natural surroundings with an experienced bike tour guide. Reykjavík Bike Tours offers a variety of guided tours, and they’ll adjust their itineraries to accommodate each group’s interests.
And while you’re in Iceland, don’t miss your only opportunity to see a volcano from the inside. Thrihnukagigur Volcano erupted for the last time 4,000 years ago, and it’s now the only volcano in the world that visitors can enter and explore. Just a half-hour from Reykjavík, Inside the Volcano is a guided adventure that puts you in the heart of the volcano for a full 40 minutes. After a scenic hike and delicious lunch, you descend 120 meters in an open elevator into the heart of this natural wonder, where you’ll use headlamps and safety gear to see the crater up close and personal. It is perfectly safe, and suitable for first-time hikers and kids 12 or older.
So if your Tusker Trail Iceland Adventure triggered the excitement, stick around and see more of the Land of Fire and Ice.
