How we find the most unique places in Iceland…
I first visited Iceland over 20 years ago. On the surface, it appears everything is the same, but the Vikings have been hard at work, this land of fire and ice has been evolving into a global “Have you been?” destination… This is why we continuously test ourselves to find the most unique places in Iceland.
Iceland provides the perfect introduction to adventure for children, it’s safe, exciting and they get to try new experiences plus there’s lots of Viking history! It’s the perfect balance.
We’ve taken numerous families to Iceland with toddlers to teenagers. From blasting buggies, riding Icelandic horses to Viking lunches in the wild, it’s the ideal location for the whole family.
Iceland is changing…
20 years ago, an adventure in Iceland was for the intrepid traveler, looking for a walk on the wild side. The evolution of experiential travel and with air travel becoming cheaper than filling up your car, this has enabled Iceland to become one of the most sought after travel destinations in the world. It’s a place to escape into the unknown and is currently enjoying an incredible renaissance. From rustic and wild, to modern chic – you’ll find some amazing things there – private homes, 5-star hotels and world class cuisine to the very best in luxury transportation, all fast becoming the norm in Iceland.
Finding unique places in Iceland starts with a helicopter…
Over the years I have explored this mystical country from tip to tail, sampling the traditional to the downright peculiar along the way. From rotten shark to a local tipple that you might want to give a miss, it’s called “black death”.
Walking across the largest glacier in Europe, seeing the sun and moon shine down majestically at the same time.
I recall walking in utter silence with some friends of mine, seeing the sun to the left of me and the moon to my right and the northern lights ahead of us.
Relaxing in geothermic rock pools heated from the earth, while the northern lights dance above. This Viking land possesses a genuine magic, a magic that leaves your imagination spinning in overdrive trying to absorb and comprehend this otherworldly landscape, it’s quite literally alive!
Over the years Momentum has developed an incredible local team in Iceland. Our team is lead by the invincible guide Thor. Utterly passionate about his country, with an incredible and intimate knowledge of the landscape. Masterfully crafting incredible experiences that are far away from the increasing maddening crowds.
Whether you are looking for an escape, an adventure or just do something truly unique. Iceland will have you telling tales of Vikings and goblins for many years to come.
Together we welcome you and let’s experience the path less trodden.
