Thrilling things to do in Iceland on a post-lockdown holiday

Reykjavík: Iceland is proving to be one of the most desirable destinations in the world for post-lockdown travel. This island nation is now open to adventure-hungry travellers, having scrapped the 5-day quarantine requirement for fully vaccinated tourists. It’s also tipped to be one of the very few countries on the UK government’s “green list”, meaning that British visitors won’t need to quarantine upon returning home.

To be allowed to travel abroad again, safely and without quarantining, is a thrilling prospect in itself. But Iceland goes above and beyond with its slew of exhilarating sights and activities. Think getting up close to an erupting volcano one day, taking a helicopter ride over a glacier the next.

Nordic Visitor’s Iceland travel experts – who are based in Reykjavík, the capital – have shared their top recommendations for what visitors should do for their first post-lockdown holiday in Iceland. These are the top 7 tips from locals:

1. Discover an erupting volcano – you can actually see the molten lava flowing from Fagradalsfjall volcano right now.

2. Go whale watching – marvel at humpback whales breaching off the coast on a boat tour, and look out for dolphins too.

3. Kayak on glacier lagoons – watch as chunks of ice calve from Iceland’s glaciers and float away on tranquil lagoons.

4. Hunt for the northern lights – look to the wide open skies for spellbinding natural light show, the aurora borealis.

5. Take a helicopter ride – soar over glaciers, volcanoes and lava fields to gaze at Iceland’s dazzling natural wonders from above.

6. Venture inside ice caves – explore blue caverns of frozen glacial water, which freeze over every winter and melt in the spring.

7. Relax in geothermal pools – do as the locals do and soak in the milky waters of naturally heated pools and lagoons.
