Dying for a vacation? Head to Iceland and do these awesome outdoor sports. You'll feel far, far, far away from your desk. We promise.
6. Surf on the Coast
The thought of surfing might conjure up images of Hawaii or Bali rather than Iceland, but the passionate staff at Arctic Surfers is working to change that. Not surprisingly the only surf company in the country, Arctic Surfers promises world-class waves, crowd-free lineups, and raw natural beauty. With more than 3,000 miles of Atlantic Ocean coastline, Iceland receives swells from every direction. While trips are available year-round, the conditions are best in late spring and early fall, when water temperatures are similar to those found in the United Kingdom. But don’t worry—they always supply Icelandic water-tested wetsuits. (Rates available upon request; arcticsurfers.is)
