Inspired by Iceland Rovers
Maybe the words ice and snow sound cold? Icelandic glaciers are actually more like a playground for all kinds of adventures that are sure to keep you warm. Just walking on these ancient giants, feeling the ice under your feet and hearing the crunching sound as your crampons sink into the frozen surface is its own adventure. Or, you could try your skills at ice climbing. The glacier has ice walls of different shapes and sizes and Iceland Rovers have the knowledge to find the perfect challenge for your group. Why not enjoy some refreshments while up in this unique environment? A buffet with a mixture of something warm and cool might be just what you need.
Glacier Adventure - Glacier Walk
A Glacier Walk is a great way to experience Icelandic Nature. The nearest glaciers are only about 2 hours away from Reykjavík and it's ideal to get a group up on the glacier Sólheimajökull just after having passed the world famous volcano Eyjafjallajökull. Our Glacier Walk on crampons is safe and easy. After walking only a short distance up the ice field a wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges and deep crevasses await your discovery. Keep in mind that Icelandic Rovers have the knowledge and training to find the perfect challenge for you and your group on the Glacier. This could be a day tour from Reykjavík or a part of a larger program.
Note: We are not bound to Sólheimajökull for our Glacier Walks. We can be very flexible and just for an example we could operate the Glacier Walk from our base in Skaftafell National Park just underneath the highest summit of Iceland Hvannadalshnúkur.
Some groups like to have more challenge than others. Ice Climbing is just the perfect way to push your group’s limits. Keep in mind that Ice Climbing can suit everyone because it is rely easy to adjust the difficulty level. With us, you can learn the basics of the correct techniques and how to use appropriate equipment. Ice climbing is a unique experience that one can practice all year around in Iceland and therefore we can offer you the perfect opportunity to go out and swing those ice tools. This could be a day tour from Reykjavík or a part of a larger program.
Note: Our Guides have all gone through a world class training program and just to emphasize that training our company got the Education Award from SAF (The Icelandic Travel Industry Association) for the training of our guides in 2010.
Hot spring Hike
Iceland is richer in hot springs and high-temperature geo-thermal activity than any other country in the world. In a short distance from Reykjavík lies the Hengill Volcano geothermal area. An easy hike takes you through a landscape shaped by geothermal activity, where the view of boiling hot springs and bubbling mud pools awaken your imagination. The hike continues down through Reykjadalur (e. the Smokey Valley) where it is possible and highly recommended to enjoy a natural bath in a warm stream. This is a great half-day trek(4-5hours) that everyone can participate in. Get in touch with the pure Icelandic nature on your own two feet.
Note: This tour can be combined with lots of other tours such as short Glacier Walks, Caving, whale watching, Sea Angling, horse back riding and more. Hot springs are to be found all over Iceland and are very often a hidden secret of the locals. Special hot spring hunts can be provided by Iceland Rovers.
Within The Lava fields of Iceland there are hidden secrets, both mythical and natural. Many lava caves have been discovered all over the country and some of them are easily accessible for individuals and groups of different sizes. This adventures journey takes you to one of the many lava caves in the Bláfjöll mountain range, just east of Reykjavík. There you will find out how lava caves are formed and discover the beauty of stalagmites and stalactites. This is a 1/2 day tour that takes you through the hidden beauties of the underworld.
Note: It is common tail that elves, ghosts and other mystical beings are to be found in the Icelandic nature, especially in caves, stones, glaciers, lava fields and mountains. Each tail, scary or funny has a different feel and tradition to itself. Many Icelanders still believe in those mystical things so come find out for yourself if they are true or not.
Challenge yourself to the top!
Have you ever dreamt about standing on top of the world? How about the top of one of Iceland’s many mountains and peaks? Or imagine yourself touring on Europe’s biggest glacier. However if you want to challenge yourself, Iceland Rovers Incentives will help you do it in style. We will take care of your adventure, providing the best accommodation available, luxury meals before, during and after your challenge.

The Ascent of the highest peak in Iceland, Hvannadalshnjúkur (2110m/6921 feet) is a once in a lifetime must do for outdoors enthusiasts.

Hrútfjallstindar is the name of the impressive peaks dominating the skyline to the north of Svínafellsjökull glacier. The peaks are four in total and the highest one is 1875 m high (6150 feet). Hikers can make their way up to the top without technical difficulties. A trip to Hrútfjallstindar peaks is on par with a trip to the summit of Hvannadalshnúkur. The hike is equally demanding and takes about 14-16 hours. The route offers magnificent scenery over the Öræfajökull massif as well as Skaftafellsjökull and Svínafellsjökull glaciers.

Self – Drive Tours
One of the best ways to explore many of Iceland’s hidden treasures is on a vehicle capable of tackling the extremes of the terrain. On a 4x4 vehicle you can reach the mountainous interior on highland trails, visit isolated geothermal areas with natural baths and other exotic places. For a more adventurous ride, take a modified 4x4 up on the top of the century old ice of a glacier down to the black sandy beaches right by the powerful Atlantic ocean.
Iceland Rovers self-drive tours put you in the driver’s seat. With a guide driving ahead leading the convoy you will be in good hands ready to handle every obstacle that might get in your way.

Fimmvörðuháls Volcano – Superjeep and Hiking
Explore the grounds of the 2010 Volcano Eruption in the surroundings of Eyjafjallajökull. The Super Jeeps take you up to about 800m altitude and from there we walk for about an hour to reach the craters Magni and Móði (1100m). These are the craters that erupted just before the principal crater of Eyjafjallajökull. Under these new grounds, fresh lava is still steaming and glowing under the surface giving you a sence of the forces of nature at work. Afterwards it´s ideal to go down to the black sandy beaches to admire the beauty and power of the North Atlantic Ocean. This could be a day tour from Reykjavík or a part of a larger program.
Inspired by Volcano
Enjoy the breathtaking nature of Landmannalaugar, take a bath in a warm natural pool and have us set up an Icelandic luxurious gourmet buffet in the highlands. This is also a very good location for all kinds of teambuilding activities. A visit to the famous volcano Hekla is also an option in the same tour. All of this can be described as a land of surreal beauty with steaming hot springs, glacier ice, explosive craters and an amazing range of colors. This could be a day tour from Reykjavík or a part of a larger program.
Run a Race - In the City or Out in the Nature
Tie up you laces and settle into the starting blocks!
Experience the original Race in the City or take the opportunity to have a Race in the raw Nature of Iceland. Running a race is the ultimate team building activity, and a definite way to build up group dynamics. Through a mixture of some physical activities and puzzles or quizzes, teams have to work out solutions to different problems. The setting is either in or around the city center or just outside the city limits if you are looking for a bit more adventurous team building project. Everything can happen at a fixed location or a 4x4 super jeep can pick up your group and only by solving an enigmatic message will they find the next post.
Dealing with suspension and uncertainties only ties you closer together!
Inspired by Team Building
Snowmobiles are accessible almost the whole year around on glaciers only about 2-3 hours from Reykjavík. At the glaciers locations we have mountain huts receiving us, where we will suit up and learn how to use those fun and exciting machines. The length of the snowmobile tour itself is optional and we can advice you on what lengths are appropriate for the size of your group. The glacier is also a fun place for team building activities. So make your trip to the glacier as memorable as possible with us.

Dive or Snorkel in the world famous Silfra
The Silfra rift is an absolute world class dive site due to two main reasons. First of all you will be diving in a crack between the American and Eurasian continents. It's the place where the continental plates meet and drift apart about 2cm per year. Secondly the visibility that you will experience will rarely be surpassed, if ever. 100m+! The Silfra water is as pristine as water can get and you can drink it at anytime during the dives. The National park Thingvellir has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, both for its cultural & historical significance as well as natural & geological uniqueness. Silfra is only 50 km from Reykjavík (30 miles). This is about a half day tour.
Note: No experience or licenses are required for Snorkeling. For Diving you need minimum experience and a diving license (Padi or similar). All the activities in Silfra are done in dry- suites, that way you´ll keep as dry and warm as possible.

Quad Bikes - ATV
The ATV'S are situated in a few different areas and can be transported up to request.

River rafting is a possible activity in a few places in Iceland. Hvítá glacier river is the closest River Rafting place from Reykjavík (2 hours). Hvítá is a easy family suited river including an optional jump off of cliffs (2+ out of 5). The other rivers are located further north. The rivers up North can be more extreme or level 4+ out of 5. River Rafting is mostly operated through April/May to October.
Horse riding is a popular activity in Iceland. Icelandic horses are small, friendly and sure- footed. Of course they have a special 5th gait instead of the usual three or four. Each horse is carefully chosen to match the skill level of the rider. This activity is a fun adventure for all. All necessary equipment is provided such as a helmets, protective clothing and boots if needed.

Deep Sea Angling
Sea Angling tours are a great activity mostly run from Reykjavík harbor from the beginning of May to end of August. This is both a trip for the experienced fishermen as well as fresh beginners, fishing for the first time of their life.
This opportunity gives you the change to catch fish like cod, haddock, Pollock, catfish and if the luck is with you, even a giant halibut. All the equipment needed for fishing is provided along with the guidance of experienced sea-anglers. The catch of the day can be barbequed on board if the group wishes.
Get the feel of a luxurious helicopter ride in Iceland. The view from above can very often give you a totally different perspective of places. We can have a helicopter meet our group anywhere at any time to take your group up in the sky for a different look of the landscape. Have the helicopter take you to the sites of the Volcano eruption in Eyjafjallajökull 2010 and see the steaming crater with your own eyes.
The flights can vary from 10 min up to 1 hour. The price is most often based on the location and the length of each flight.
Where else in the world can you go golfing at midnight? In Iceland we have about 80 golf courses spread around the country and many of them are 18 holes. The scenery around the golf courses is very often spectacular, offering you a view of colorful mountains, glaciers, geysers, rivers, Glacier Rivers and so on. The Golf courses usually open in and around April and close again in the end of September. Plan a midnight sun golf round/or tournament for your incentive group.

This is a great opportunity to get your group closer together. Walking up on the river canyons in Thorsmork by wading the river in high rubber boots with a walking stick for support (rubber boots and walking stick provided). The goal is to have everyone in the group get all the way up the river with the help of each other (it´s impossible without help). This activity can be operated all year around and is a great activity if your group is heading towards Thorsmork.
