If you’re a huge fan of trekking, then one of the best times to do it in Iceland is during summer. You can start it off by hiking to the naturally hot river of Reykjadalur Hot Springs then explore the rest of the day heading back to the city of Reykjavik and exploring it on your own. Other places that are worth exploring include Móði & Magni Volcanoes, the Blue Lagoon, and Snæfellsjökull Glacier. If you’re a first timer, you should pursue your trekking trips with precaution. Make sure that you’re with someone who knows well the trails and the places themselves; better yet, sign up for package tours that usually take care of everything – from transportation down to your accommodation.

A trip to Iceland is nothing without getting yourself an adrenaline rush. Some of the things that you must try in the country include sea kayaking, whale watching, snorkeling, caving, and glacial hiking. Again, if you haven’t tried any of these before, it will be wise to ask for information from the tourism office or for hassle-free trips, inquire from different tour agencies for their available package tours.

Go Camping

Another way to experience summer in the country of Fire and Ice is to go camping. Go south and camp in the jaw-dropping place like Langisjór Highland lake. The best thing about camping in this kind of place is that there’s a variety of things that you can do here – you can simply enjoy the beautiful scenery, go paddling in the lake, or trek the nearest mountain. Boredom is indeed non-existing in the country.
