Paragliding Iceland options

So, back to Paragliding in Iceland. And why it deserves to be on the top 6 list of worldwide adrenaline activities. With Happyworld, you can go Paragliding in two different locations in Iceland:

Paragliding in the Reykjavík area will take you high above the lava plateau at Bláfjöll (Blue Mountains). This is the same area as Inside the Volcano tour, so you will be silently soaring over volcanic craters, lava formations and amazing moss spread. In our opinion, this is probably the best way to see lava formations come to life right before your eyes. Your 360° view of the horizon includes volcanic mountains, Hellisheiði geothermal activity, glaciers, the Atlantic ocean, Þingvellir national park and Reykjavík city.

Paragliding on the South Coast will give you a magnificent view of the area now well known for the setting of Game of Thrones. Hence, black beaches, glaciers, amazing rock formations, big mountains, delta rivers and maybe even some Puffins. You can either meet us at the location for your Paragliding flight there or do our combo South Coast + Paragliding Adventure tour.

Aurora blew us away this evening! A full on display of colour and light for a full hour. 

The lights started while we were still on the highway. We pulled over at the first opportunity for a short preview before carrying on the 15 more minutes to our destination. Our haunted house at Vatnsleysuströnd was deserted as ever… though there were a few spooky changes I might tell you about in a different tale. Read more

Aurora is On

Northern Lights in Iceland

Charge your batteries and put on your warmest clothes… Aurora season has begun!

To us, this (below) is a beautiful picture! Why? Because it tells us the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) were extremely active last night! After a (way too) short period of long summer days in Iceland, nights are finally dark + the Magnetic Observatory charts are rocking = we are in Aurora season 🙂 Now all we need is a clear sky to be able to see them!

Northern Lights sighting: Garðskagaviti (pink eye on map)
Time of sighting: 23:14
Duration: until about 00:30 when it clouded over again

In a team of two Land Rovers we drove out of Reykjavík in the pouring rain. The skies were black, the outlook was bleak. The day had seen the worst storm Iceland had in several years. But we had hope. We had spent the afternoon analyzing cloud forecasts, magnetic observations and satellite images as well as chatting with the Met office. We decided the chance of sighting was good enough to validate a night out with the group of 12. Read more
