It is best to whale watch in the summer months, preferably April through September. Minke whales are the most common in Iceland. Follow instructions carefully and be safe.

The perfect place for you to get a shot with a double rainbow, Skogafossis the most scenic fall in Iceland. With a drop of over 60 meters, the view is spectacular. There is also a legend of gold that lies within the falls. Take your chance and search if you dare...


Silfra is an amazing diving spot located in Thingvellir National Park. It is the crevice between the tectonic plates in North America and Eurasian continents. It is the only place in the world where you can dive between two tectonic plates that shift roughly 2 cm every year. The shifting of the earth creates new caverns and tunnels. Fun facts…there is plenty of wildlife to see on your dive/snorkel; the three main dive sites are; Silfra Hall, Silfra Cathedral, and Silfra Lagoon; the maximum depth is about 207 feet. The water is the purest in the world, and you can feel free to take a sip while diving.
