The Viking Challenge...for those who enjoy getting tired while experiencing a fascinating country!

The Viking Challenge Classic offers a lot of Iceland in a little time! This 7 day package lets you really experience Iceland’s magical landscape (by hiking, riding, rafting, and biking through it!) and includes some unique Icelandic fun -glacial trekking, Icelandic horses, whale watching, the Blue Lagoon all from a choice of accommodation in Reykjavik. The activities aren’t terribly hard, just exciting. In addition to fun, they provide insight into Iceland’s unique nature and culture.

This tour is not limited to people who have highly developed skills in these various activities. It is for anyone with a sense of adventure and in fairly good health. It is basically limited to adventurers above 15 years of age, mostly because of equipment and safety gear sizes.

Golden Circle & White River Rafting
You’ll visit the Golden Circle trio of wonders -- Þingvellir National Park, Geysir hot springs and Gullfoss waterfall.
