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.
7. Raft on The Hvítá River
Like scuba diving, rafting might not seem like the ideal sport for Iceland, with its frigid year round water temps. Yet the Hvítá River will seduce you into changing your mind with its scenic mix of canyons, rushing rapids, and adrenaline surges. The seven-kilometer run of powerful river is interrupted only by a stop at Brúarhlöð canyon, where fearless rafters cliff-jump into the glacial waters. ($80; arcticrafting.com)
