Happyworld – Paragliding in the Summer and Northern Lights in the winter

My daughter and I went on a Paragliding adventure with Happyworld and it was just one of the best times I have ever had! In the wintertime Happyworld offers small group northern lights tours. We recommend that you go on a small group tours rather than the big buses. More change of actually getting to know people and see things better.

Into the Glacier

How can I even explain this one? You go up to Langjökull glacier on converted military trucks that used to carry missiles. Then they drop you off in front of an entrance to a massively deep tunnel that has been carved into the glacier. Inside there is a huge crevice and a chapel (!).

Into the Volcano – Þríhnjúkagígur

This is just an incredible experience. You descend deep down into this one of a kind volcanic magma chamber. This is yet another experience that I just am not very well able to explain. To be down there in deep magma chamber nothing short of a metaphysical experience. I couldn´t help thinking that the enormous dome I was in was once full of lava. Now it is just a cathedral-like empty space.
